Being penalized on Facebook by Site Advisor

Hello, all of a sudden my recenlty registered domain condividete.net (whose links i publish on my facebook pages with regularity) has been somehow flagged because Mcafee Site Advisor has not yet verified it.
So in recent days i've had nearly ZERO visitors coming from FB, because they stumble on the warning message and go away!!!

I've tried to register to the Advisor site and submit url for verification BUT i've encountered the infamous error "It appears that the Web site condividete.net (or www.condividete.net) is returning an HTTP 2xx or 3xx status response code in the header of 404 pages..." and just for make the situation worse, my user on advisor site lacks the validation (i've not received any email since registering) so i cannot even leave a comment or such for any domain.
I ask for help getting my site reviewed and gaining the green mark as soon as possible, i don't think i can do this on my own.
Thanks in advance.

Re: Being penalized on Facebook by Site Advisor

I can link to your site from Facebook without any warnings, and even though SiteAdvisor has not fully tested your site the McAfee icon is Green - which means, there are no problems so far. Do you still see the warning?

Posso collegare al tuo sito da Facebook senza alcun avviso, e anche se non SiteAdvisor ha pienamente testato il sito l'icona McAfee è verde - il che significa, non ci sono problemi finora.  Non si vede ancora l'avviso?

(La traduzione è ok?)

Re: Being penalized on Facebook by Site Advisor

Yes, thank you, just now the links work without warnings, but i forgot to tell that it's the second time i got this problem, in a few weeks. The warnings stay there for almost 2 days then go away.
I hope that won't become a random recurrence until the advisor analyzes my domain

P.S. Translation is quite good, not perfect but good

Re: Being penalized on Facebook by Site Advisor

OMG The warning has appeared again today!!!

Re: Being penalized on Facebook by Site Advisor

I noticed that my site now has the green flag! so WHY the links published on Facebook report still the same warning???

Hi condividete,

What browser are you using?

Re: Being penalized on Facebook by Site Advisor

Google Chrome and/or Internet Explorer. No difference...
Go here for example http://www.facebook.com/giustiziaelavoro and click on the links directing to condividete.net (domain is configured to redirect to condividete.altervista.org) and you'll see the warning. It's still there and my Fb visitors are near 0 again

Re: Being penalized on Facebook by Site Advisor

And here we go again, i'm sure that when my site gets much traffic, that triggers the false positive warnings. This is getting ridiculous, what should i do?

Hi condividete,

Using Internet Explorer 9.0 32-Bit in Windows 7 Ultimate 64-Bit with Service Pack 1 installed I visited:

http://condividete.altervista.org/video/ and I visited

http://www.facebook.com/giustiziaelavoro#!/giustiziaelavoro?sk=app_190322544333196

With no problems whatsoever with SiteAdvisor 3.4.1.195 installed.

Did I click on any links? No. I don't read that language that it is published in.

I think that you should create a second, if possible, Facebook Identity with a different Email Address, then you current one and test Facebook and your site using the newly created Facebook ID. See what happens.

You are using the same Facebook ID and you may be given False Positives.

Re: Being penalized on Facebook by Site Advisor

Thank you for your interest. Btw as i wrote in the first messages of this discussion, the problem arises when a Fb user clicks on a link published on my Fb page(s) and it seems there's not a problem related to the browser (i tried latest Ie, Chrome, Opera) or the user (i asked to fb friends check it) and to see it you can, for example, go here: http://www.facebook.com/tutterecensioni?sk=wall and click on the first link on the board...
