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!

Jim

If I click on the link I get https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Cv6...QyAf8GKLW/view.

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.

Re: Strange redirect.

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).
