Re: SiteAdvisor : Gives message "this link is suspicious"

Possibly it's not your website but the server. Clean-MX is flagging multiple problems with other sites which are hosted on the same IP address. Worth noting that Clean-MX is often over-zealous and reports false positives, but that's quite a long list of sites. Some of the reports are still classed as Overdue (i.e, not resolved).

You've also got masses of tracking code on the page and a lot of iframes -


Some of the tracking code looks at first glance to be encoded or obfuscated (it might not be, but it's not text) and that might raise a warning somewhere. So might the iframes, which are inherently suspect. Put obfuscated javascript in an iframe and chances are doubled that you'll get a warning.
