RE: SA not showing in Google search.


We received your message reporting no annotations ( = site advisor ratings) on the google search results page on FF. Thank you for contacting us.

We would need some more information before we could help you out. Please answer the following questions:-

Once you give us the information requested above, we'll get back to you immediately with a solution if possible. Thank you for being a McAfee customer.
