When you do a google search, my company's website comes up in the search results and I get the message that my website has malware on it and don't visit it.

I am looking for a way to expedite Google's reconsideration of the site.
Does anyone have any ideas?

Also I'm wondering if any hosts are more secure than others. I'm using Go Daddy.

Last, I wonder about best resolution to the problem. I guess take down the site and reload it.

You should clean and protect your website. Then request a review of your website from Google.

http://www.google.com/support/webmasters/b...y?answer=163634

Normally, it takes around two weeks for Google to work this out. Therefore, make sure your web site is clean before you request a review or it will take another 2 weeks.

You should also search StopBadware.org for your site and request a review after cleaning if your site is listed.

Hello and good morning.

thanks for the info. I'm familar with the process you mention.
It's the process that Google recommends.

Someone I know just had their site reviewed and overnight, the warning went away.
I'd like to know how to do that! Or something like it!
I don't understand why it's taking our site so long and it only took them 1 day.
I want to know how to expedite the process.

Any thoughts on one host being more secure than another?

Thanks!

The 2 weeks period is average time. I guess it depends on how much workload they have.

Yes some hosts are more secure. It all depends on the administrating staff of the host. Personally, I think GoDaddy is very secure host.

Actually, you can google for any company and you would find both good and bad words about that company. This is specially true about hosting companies. Try googling "godaddy is awesome" or "i love godaddy".

I can also say, Hey I found this interesting site on the subject of godaddy.com : http://ilovegodaddy.com/

Thanks.
Yup, there's a lot of info out there - you can find whatever you want.

I like this forum becuase of the intellengent, informed community vs. all the b.s. on the internet.
Security seems like a touchy subject that no one really wants to talk about.

Thanks for all the info.

I'm still open to ideas if anyone knows how to expedite getting the malware warning off your site.
(Note: I'm not asking how to get it off, I'm asking about expediting it.)
I know of someone who only waited 1 day during July, in the same time period while I was (am) waiting
for over two weeks.

Maybe it has to do with your host? I've been using Go Daddy, he used Hostasaurus.

I ended up buying a service through Securi.net - they cleaned everything up and re-submitted to Google.
It was fixed in about an hour and Google approved it over within about 6 hours.
Amazing.

You're with godaddy, if I'm not mistaken, but I think they have an antivirus scanner that scans your site for potential threat. You should ask goddady 1st.

I did do that first. Alway do that first.

I also bought and paid for their site scanner, which is supposed to find vulnerabilites.
Someone got through two days after Site scanner found my site to be safe.

Youíre not done with this issue yet. Itís nice that you got fixed up for now, but you may want to look into why you got blacklisted in the first place. If you were hosting malware yourself, then hopefully you learned not to. If not, then you may have been hacked and had malware dumped on your site. In that case, youíre likely to get hit again and have to pay Securi.net all over again. (Donít just bail the water out of the boat, patch the hole!)



I can also say, Hey I found this interesting site on the subject of godaddy.com : http://ilovegodaddy.com/

:thumbsup: Thanks a lot. That site seems to be a pro-GoDaddy site but certainly comes across as anti-GoDaddy because it is horribly obnoxious with no less that FOUR auto-playing videos!
