Length of time for testing.

My site shows up as a minimal risk in trusted source however, in site advisor I get a 'we have tested millions of sites....' . I have requested a test approximately one month ago yet no results, how long does it take for a website to be tested? Any help!

Re: Length of time for testing.

Unfortunately Site advisor does not give you a how far along bar so you can chart where they are up to. The rule of thumb is 14 days to 42 days so I hear so yours should be online soon. Never hurts to query them via the email address.

Re: Length of time for testing.

       Thank you for the reply. I don't want to seem negative but in the security business, negative is imperative! When using the McAfee add-on in my browser I see that my website has a green checkmark(not limited to my site) yet when I go to site review I get the 'we have tested millions' . I suppose that the fact that trusted source reports my site as minimal risk is why I get the green checkmark, but this can contribute to a surfer's confusion.

Thank you once again,
