MWG7 vs. TrustedSource?

Jump to solution

What's the difference between how TrustedSource and the MWG7 gets their ratings?

For example, a website was brought to my attention www.10-8store.com.

The MWG7 shows these ratings:

TrustedSource.org shows this:

TIA!

The Web Gateway has some additional lookup options (like forward IP lookup), which means that it will do an additional lookup based on the IP that MWG has found.

The cloud cannot do this lookup because it may resolve the site to a different IP than that local MWG.

Best,

Jon
