Strange redirect.
 
I've posted this link on the 'wildaboutthebritishisles site:

https://drive.google.com/open?id=1Cv...u29XAQyAf8GKLW

But if click on it I get a redirect via 'viglink.com' to the placeholder web page on my local machine's Apache web server. For other site users the link works O.K.. If I access the site using my mobile 'phone, it works OK.

The link I actually get on the site if I hover over the link is:

http://redirect.viglink.com/?key=bbb...u29XAQyAf8GKLW

I'm using Linux (Xubuntu) with Google Chrome and Firefox.

I'm not sure what's going on!

This has some night time videos of badgers playing and fighting.

That's as it should be. But if I click on the link on the wild etc. site I get the second 'viglink' link.

It's even stranger!

If I click on a link to www.viglink.com, I get redirected again to my default Apache web server page on my machine:

http://www.viglink.com/

The above link does it.

Viglink seems to be a 'monetization site' (whatever that is).
