Glitch????? (Redirects).

About two days ago I was on the forum using my iPhone, and randomly a new page opened up to some weight loss thing, every time it was a different page. So I thought it was just my phone so I restarted it, and it happened again. I went on different websites and it didn't happen.. only on this one. Thats weird? So like 5 minutes ago it happened again but on my Macbook? It only does this on this particular website, is it a glitch or just ads? I know there isn't anything wrong with my devices.. has anyone else experienced this?

This happened on my iPad last Friday. I went to settings> safari> And hit "clear history and website data" I tried a few other things, but believe that was what got rid of it.

I restarted the PC, which has helped.

Just happened to me to the 'Calling on Thread Killers' thread on my Macbook Air.

Can you tell me what OS and what browser? I want to try to replicate this but I've never had it happen.

I've had it happen on both a Mac (Yosemite, Chrome, no adware or malware of any kind), and PC (Windows 7, all kinds of crazy anti-virus stuff running as it's my work PC).

Most of the stuff that will cause redirects are not "viruses" so they are under the radar of an antivirus program (most get installed, albeit unintentionally, by the user, often they are browser extensions/add-ons). I use FireFox across the board but always run AdBlock. My guess is that the redirect is coming from one of the embedded ads, but I'm not seeing it because I don't see ads on websites.
