How long does it take to verify a site?

I uploaded my site for verification recently (www.borkutok.com)  and I was wondering how long it will take? I already sent it a request for verification.  If you have any ideas, please share with me. Thanks

    Moved this to SiteAdvisor. The first-mentioned site is still going through the testing process, which can take several weeks to complete.

    I (c)an't direct traffic to my site or add content without it being tested

     

    Strictly speaking, if you change the site in any significant way after it's been tested, then the tests are meaningless and the site should be re-submitted for testing. If there is a problem later TrustedSource will probably detect it and pass a warning to SiteAdvisor, which will then flag the site and say that TrustedSource has found a problem; but you may get a situation where SiteAdvisor and Trustedsource rate the site differently.

    Any visitors to your site who have SiteAdvisor will see a Green icon displayed, even though the main SiteAdvisor analysis page still shows a grey 'undefined' questionmark symbol. This has been verified in Chrome and IE.  Your site has passed the preliminary tests and final rating will be made once those tests which take longer to complete have all been done.

     

    Your site still shows the 'unrated' symbol in Google and Yahoo searches because these get their information from SiteAdvisor's rating.

     

    I know that Norton SafeWeb has given your site a Green rating; other website checkers also report no problems with it.

     

    What I said earlier still applies : SiteAdvisor's rating is the result of a snapshot, a series of tests run on a website at a particular date. Your site is still under development, so when all the content has been added in it would be prudent to re-submit the site for testing. I doubt whether its Green rating would be affected during the re-test.
