kickoff3pm, did you get a fix to this issue?

No but it's stopped now. Can't understand it because it started and all I could change was to remove the url peramiters in google webmaster admin that I had spent some time entering. Don't know if thats the reason it stopped but I've not had any for a while now. Thing is those setting were in for 6 months without a problem.

same issue here, it could be a new algo from google, testing to see if its a valid cart… so you dont put up FAKE sites that redirect to affiliated stores or something…
