Why is it that when I google "Natural Selection Furniture" I get "Your mortgage status?"?

Asked by jca (36046points) July 14th, 2011

I am trying to google a company called Natural Selection Furniture on Central Avenue in Hartsdale NY. On several occasions, tonight, when I google it and click on it, I come up with the page for “Your Mortgage Status.” If I don’t click on it and just look at what’s on google, I see under the domain name for NaturalSelectionfurniture.com “Your Mortgage Status.” It makes no sense.

Can someone google Natural Selection Furniture and see what they come up with? Can you tell me if it’s something to do with mortgages, which is not what I want (because there is a store called Natural Selection Furniture and I do want to look at their site so I can buy a bed)?

The use of the word beta in the header suggests a sloppy web developer is working on another site on that site. Otherwise it is a case of inapproriate redirection and should be reported to google. Have you ever heard of this furniture store before?

Try this

My guess is that “Your….” has the IP address from the old “Natural…”

Therefore Natural Selection Furniture lost their address for website. Or like @anartist said SLOPPY web developer

Who has the time (or inclination) to report bad links to Google?

(It is a bad link, by the way. I got the same result.)

If you’re encountering this problem using Firefox, then a potential resolution starts with the following quip: http://www.fluther.com/99177/firefox-has-been-hijacked-help/#quip1618994

@anartist: yes, it’s definitely a store that I have been to before. They sell unfinished wood furniture.

I’m glad for all you guys verifying that it’s not me or my computer that’s off! It was and is very mysterious!

Here’s a link to the store on Central Avenue. It lists them in Scarsdale, but there’s a phone number and you might call them and ask what the problem is. They also have a facebook page

@jca

Try this link to the Santa Cruz store.

Yes, I know California is not on the East Coast.

@lillycoyote Your link to FB is for a store in – - – - ->UK.

My guess is that Natural Selection Furniture [the one you are looking for] let its domain lapse or gave up its website. @lillycoyote‘s link go right back to the mortgage site.

Perhaps call the person listed on the second domain—your store may have moved there

definitely a sloppy developer. If you call the people in Stamford, tell them about it.
They still own the domain name and this developer may be working on a new site for them may have posted the wrong site link on their page.
the following code indicates the person working on this is working on several beta sites.

ok. @Tropical_Willie the facebook link was no good,a U.K. store I guess, but @anartist, the link to store in Scarsdale was posted just to provide @jca the phone number for the store on Central Avenue.

anartist's avatar

@lillycoyote I think they have moved to Stamford and are redoing their site.
So I got the Stamford phone #

I, apparently, can do no right on this thread so I’m done.
