My website has been completely blocked by SiteAdvisor, due to "annoyances" which appear to come in the form of outbound links to doubleclick.net. These are Google Adsense ads I believe.
When I click to "visit anyway", sometimes, page parts are showing as "blocked content" which are Google Adsense ads.
This page for example sometimes shows "blocked content" at the top of a web forum I host on the site:
The site is financed by those ads so I can't afford to lose them. What else can I do to get my site un-blacklisted?
Well, this is strange. Not, given the way SiteAdvisor has been behaving lately, totally unexpected, but strange.
In IE8 I go to the site and nothing is blocked, and the SiteAdvisor icon is Green. The Forums page likewise displays without anything being blocked.
I click on the icon to get the Siteadvisor rating page, and the rating is Red, citing TrustedSource.
TrustedSource shows the site as Green.
i suggest you contact SiteAdvisor and/or TrustedSource and ask them why SiteAdvisor is doing this. For myself, I think the changeover to the new SA system is screwing things up royally. But don't tell them I said that. I suspect they already know.
How to contact them :
- I checked the site with Sucuri : no problems. Internet Explorer's SmartScreen Filter likewise, no problems.
- In all my browsers I have Abine's DoNotTrackMe enabled, so I checked to see if it was blocking anything that might otherwise have caused a problem. It reported Google AdSense, Google Analytics, and DoubleClick were being blocked. I unblocked AdSense and DoubleClick and reloaded the page. Still no problems, nothing blocked, SiteAdvisor icon still Green.
I also went to WOT to see if anything was reported there : nothing.
Thanks for looking!
I filled out the form to dispute.
I've scanned my site for exploits also, nothing.
I'm sorry for the trouble you experienced aetherweb. I understand this has now been rectified. https://www.siteadvisor.com/sites/http://www.whitbyonline.co.uk is now showing green status.
YES it is now GREEN again thank goodness. I wonder why it was set to RED for a time.
All good again now.
It would be nice to know how long it had been marked as dodgy for. I only found out about it because a friend had McAfee SiteAdvisor enabled and noticed.
