The problem is most likely with your router and/or ISP. A hacked router or your connection going through a malware infected DNS server is the probable cause.
Go to a location with public wi-fi or a friend or business with an ISP other than yours and see if the problem persists.

Can someone go to failblog.org on their ipad2 and see if they are redirected as well? I have narrowed it down to only a few websites where this happens and that is one of them! Let me know if you try it what the results are!

Its Not only you.I have this Problem too.
Right now I am at a friends house and the problem still exists in this new network. And for info, this problem is especially in sites I use to read something, like newspaper and stuff.
All of your testing with Cache ect. didnt work out at my Ipad, too. I did this all at the beginning and now I have no idea left,what to do.
Anyone else with an idea?

I can confirm being redirected to [https://]play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=mobi.spardeals.android when I enter failblog.org in the address bar.
This behavior is new, I was able to browse that site without problems a couple of days ago.
I didn't find any similar postings in other forums so I have no clue what the cause of that issue might be. It seems like a virus.
I have an iPad3, running a jailbroken iOS 5.0.1
Anyone having the same issue?
@Nayr0526: Which other urls cause similar problems?

If I browse to failblog.org, the site is rendering a while and at the end I'm getting redirected to play.google.com, which might be a target url of an ad.
It doesn't seem to have anything todo with DNS or my ISP. I tried different DNS (126.96.36.199 f.i.) with the same result. I went over 3G and got the same result, that's why I don't think the router is involved. Anyway, I reset the router - no change. I tethered over my iPhone's 3G - no difference.
I tried my girlfriends iPad2 and got the exact same redirection.
When I open it on my iPhone, Safari crashes instead of being redirected.

this is so strange... I'm not gettig redirected to any page if I use Opera. It's just happening in Safari.
How can that be?
Any ideas? It might help if anyone can confirm that the url failblog.org opened in Safari redirects to another site once it has been fully loaded.

Is anybody here with an iPad around? Anyone?
Could anyone visit http://failblog.org and tell, if he or she is being redirected? I just cannot figure out, if this is a website-related or an iOS-related problem...
Any help would be highly appreciated!
