Re: My website is blacklisted please help

I ran a number of checks and I can't see anything wrong with the site or with the site's IP address.

There is a conflict between SiteAdvisor, which gives the site a Red rating -

and TrustedSource, which modifies SiteAdvisor ratings in real-time, which says it's Green -

The only hint of something amiss comes from WOT, which suggests that the site may be promoting itself somewhat over-eagerly. That sort of thing might be classed as spamming. However, I can offer no comment, since I do not see the site on any of the usual spam blacklists. In any case, WOT ratings do not influence SIteAdvisor's rating so the reason for a Red rating lies elsewhere.

Contacting SiteAdvisor and requesting a review (via the main rating page) is the best way to get this investigated (and changed, if appropriate).

Thanks for your response.

We have been promoting the same way since December of last year.
There hasn't been a giant increase in our marketing, it has all been scaled proportionally.

I already contacted siteadvisor but haven't heard back.

They are contacted heaps of times so an instant reply not possible. If no fix / solution in a week max post back and I will contact a SA tech directly
