Yes, Sucuri have removed you from from the blacklist. SiteAdvisor is still showing you as Medium Risk.

However, TrustedSource appear to have re-rated you as Unverified -

- and if this is so the new rating should appear on SiteAdvisor shortly. The reason is probably that your site is being re-tested. I can't be sure because the information does not seem to be up to date.

The site itself is okay now. Remaining problems will be to do with available content, SEO, site reputation and Google takedowns. I will elaborate later - I've been busy elsewhere.

You're number two in the queue, so I'll get back to you as soon as I've dealt with the babytown case.

Edit  : finshed with the babytown.com question; I can start this tonight but won't get through it until Saturday.

I see you've already met LeoFelix. At least now you've removed the Blackhat SEO content from your site, but that still leaves some unanswered questions. Sucuri is blacklisting you, for one, and says you've been engaged in Forum Spam. WOT rates you as rock-bottom untrustworthy, for another. And when I do a WhoIs for you the Whois page is festooned with links to porn crap, which I've never seen before and find highly suspect.

I'll continue with this tomorrow, but you may need to approach a number of other site-rating bodies to get your site passed as acceptable. I have to say I don't think it's necessarily there yet.

And as for this one ..... only your site does this, and I'm not going to ask how you managed it. It doesn't make your site look good though, does it?

I've been running some checks on your site, and also tests to see what others say about your site.

First, the good news.

Since the site is basically a forum, most of the links are internal. The coding is good, and - as you announced in your original post - the site coding is W3C compliant (see the results here). Test results from W3C for links (recursion-depth=2) and for CSS show errors and warnings : see the link results and CSS results.

Looking at the results obtained from third-party testing sites, your website is passed by

- Google Safe Browsing (with the note that cpalead.com is responsible for infecting many sites with malware : if you link to it or use it anywhere in your site you should disable the link or remove it until you're sure that cpalead is no longer a threat)

- BrowserDefender

- Clean MX

- Norton SafeWeb

- Unmask Parasites (home page only checked)

- ScanURLs (Beta program)

- URLVoid submitted your site to multiple antivirus vendors (including Avast and AVG) and reported that no problems were found.

Your IP address has been scanned by IPVoid and Abuseipdb and is reported to be Clean. Magic-net reports that that IP address is not blacklisted anywhere. In that respect you are correct : the site is hosted on a reputable hosting provider and ISP (Cloudflare).

The one exception to URLVoid's list was Trend Micro which found the following problems on the site (although this test result may be a cached one)

Trend Micro Site Safety Center.png

Some advice, picked up from one of the scanning programs : the website is using version 4.1.12 of vBulletin. The latest version is 5.0 Connect. You should upgrade if possible to the latest version (from here).

Purely on the basis of the site framework, the site can be considered as safe to visit. That is, visitors are unlikely to be affected by browser exploits or drive-by downloads, and the site does not itself appear to host any malware.

However, that is not by itself guaranteed to get your site a Green SiteAdvisor rating. SiteAdvisor takes input from TrustedSource to modify site ratings on an ongoing basis, and TrustedSource uses a classification system for websites which almost certainly ensures that your site will have either a Yellow (Medium Risk) or Red (High Risk) rating. Trustedsource takes input from a large number of sources to determine that classification, and your site is going to be downrated for a number of reasons.

What those reasons are will become clearer in the next part of this analysis.

I am still trying to work out the site history and the owner information that is shown on DomainTools. I will not pursue that line of enquiry any further until I receive a reply from you on the site evaluation thread currently active on WOT. It is relevant to this thread to note that TrustedSource takes account of how often a site changes its IP address.

One point which has been cleared up satisfactorily is the question of the links to porn sites on the DomainTools page for your site. I received this reply from them earlier :

Thank you for contacting DomainTools. DomainTools does in fact sponsor adult advertising on our WHOIS pages. Our web page has in fact not been hacked. These adds are associated to any page where the system detects adult content in the Meta data. We have checked the source information and cannot currently find any key words that would associate this site as an adult themed website.

As a courtesy we have removed the adult ads and only regular advertising appears on our WHOIS page for that domain name.

(Emphasis added)

So what was on that page was none of your fault. Interesting that DomainTools imply that at one time the website metadata did contain those keywords. The page is now a normal one - http://whois.domaintools.com/hackerzcity.com

The other points you raise :

  • Trend Micro - I did say their test results were perhaps cached. No-one else found malware on your site.
  • W3C results : I stopped the Links scan before it finished. 2-level recursion produces too much output.
  • cpmfun / comfun : I assume you mean cpmfun.com, since the comfun.com domain is for sale.
  • alboraaq.com : I agree with you about the SiteAdvisor rating for that site, but it is not strictly relevant to the rating process for your site.
