Why is there a pop-up ad in my blogspot blog?

I run a blog at www.knowledgehub.co.in. It is on blogspot platform. For past few months there is a weird problem. When someone opens my blog, a full page pop-up ad appears. Sometimes it appears on opening the blog, and sometimes this happens on clicking on a post title.

I checked Google Webmaster tool for any malware on the site, but there isn’t one. I also removed some external widgets one by one to see if that fixes the problem, but no success :(

I hope with thousands of members on MakeUseOf, I will get a solution to my problem.

    go to another pc and install pop up blocker, then open your blog and see what you will have.Well you have to remove all widgets and gadgets one by one, to see who is doing this. Also is possible that a comment in a blog actually is a spam, so you have to recheck all your comments from the day that the pop up started.do you have whos.amung.us, if yed remove ittry to see if someone added infinityads.com in your blogREMOVE geovisite.com widget from your blog, which represents ONLINE WORLD in your pagedo you have "Tweet This" gadget, then remove ithttp://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2010/01/blogger-blogs-redirecting-to.htmlthings to do1.

        Were you able to solve it? Mine also has a pop up, and it's even not nice.

    .just change to a Blogger template (Minima) and abandon your custom template, as this seemed the easiest way of handling the problem. RankWidget Injecting Clicksor Ads on Your Sitehttp://greasyperson.blogspot.com/2008/03/rankwidget-injecting-clicksor-ads-on.htmlyou can be surprised to see that it is not just the pop-up under that s added but a clicksor contextual ad is also there. Some reported that technorati rank widget provided by RankWidget was a
    responsible since itself was hacked.

    If you have a plugboard on the blog then someone must have put a site on there that can cause the problems

      Thanks for the reply. I don't want to abandon my template as I have made a lot of customizations to it :(. I'll want to do that only in the extreme case.

      I do not have technorati widget on my blog, but I do have widgets to show Alexa Rank, Site stats and Page Rank. I have removed them for the time being. Let's see if this works.

      Thanks a lot for the help. Will inform you about the results.

        Removing widgets that showed Alexa Rank, Sitemeter site stats and PR did not remove the problem :(. Any other solution ?
