I noticed today that our webpages have links to search engines that seem to be a function of my browser. I remember that WebPro News reported a while ago Microsoft was talking about inserting this code in IE, but relented after an outcry from webmasters.
This is the first time I've seen it and it's appeared on two of our domains this morning, keyed to the words "cars" and "jobs". When the page loads those words are highlighted and hyperlinked to a search engine. If you click on the word, you LEAVE the website to go to the search engine. This is particularly irritating since we work pretty hard to get people TO our webs. We don't want internet explorer hijacking our web traffic.
Does anyone else have any information about what this is and how to defeat it?
Thanks in advance
