For the past week, I’ve been hard at work trying to pinpoint a problem happening with Geeks are Sexy. Visitors using Android-based devices here and there throughout the world, but not everywhere, are getting redirected to the Google Play store asking them to download an energy saving app for phones, more specifically “Battery Saver & Widgets” by DU APPS STUDIO.
Here’s what the screen looks like right before the redirect.
Initially, I thought ads were the problem, so I installed a mobile site for smartphones, thinking that this would solve the problem, and while people in America are getting the new mobile site, those in Europe are still getting redirected to the darn app right after the site loads.
I’ve also tried isolating ad scripts on pages and running alternate set of scripts to see which ones were the problem, and ended up realizing that the problem was probably on my server, but I’m just not sure.
The next step? I’m asking for help. If anyone has any pointers or can tell me where to look, I’d appreciate. Geeks are Sexy has been my full time job for 2 years now and been in operation since 2005. Something like this has never happened to me in the past.
If you want to help, I have isolated my ad scripts in these two links, if you guys could try both and reload a time or two, I’d appreciate. Let me know if you’re getting redirected. (only on android-based mobile devices)
EDIT: Here’s a 3rd one Please test this one as well (3-4 reloads) and report in the comments. (Android Devices only)
