Check out the Warning Status

Recognize warnings about website security

Google has blacklisted your website because it detected malicious behavior and scanned it. Google is responsible to protect its users from harmful websites that appear in search results. Websites that are repeatedly blacklisted for malicious behavior will only be subject to one review per 30 days. Visitors will be prevented from visiting your website by the big red splash page and warnings in Google’s search results. Google blacklists websites and they lose 95% of their traffic.

Review of diagnostic pages

All red warning pages will link directly to a page explaining why the website has been blacklisted by Google. Visitors will find the main button on this page. It usually reads, “Get me out of here” or “Back to safety”. The website owner can always find more information by clicking on another link.

Malware scan

Comodo cWatch is a web security tool that can detect and remove malware. It also helps to prevent further attacks. Comodo is a free scanner that scans your website and finds malicious payloads, locations of malware, security issues, and blacklist status.
