Sitehoppin is a social network similar to StumbleUpon which has experienced some issues over the past 12 hours. Due to a problem with the domain, visitors to websites with the Sitehoppin widget have been redirected to a holding domain. Participating websites have lost their traffic.
The problem has now been resolved and I'll be putting my widget back online. There's no longer any need to remove your widget, but I'm hoping Max will update the widget to prevent any problems in future.
Sitehoppin was a social networking site which cloned StumbleUpon, allowing visitors to submit links and surf to random sites. The site encouraged website owners to install their widget, offering credits and traffic in return.
Sitehoppin seems to have disappeared, and if you still have the widget on your site, you need to remove it right now. Because the original webpage no longer exists, the widget doesn't work as intended and is hijacking your traffic, redirecting it to a page of ads. If the widget is in your blog sidebar, you're losing every single visitor.
Please remove the widget and spread the word. If you have any further info, please leave a comment below.
