    Hello everyone. I need help from someone more expert than me. 4 days ago google has badlisted part of my website for social engineering. I have never used black hat seo technics or anything else.
    After notification i have removed all ads on my website but the first review was failed. I have perform antimalware scan on my vps and directly on my website (wordpress) with dadicated plugins: wordfence and Anti-Malware Security and Brute-Force Firewall. I have fixed all the reported problem but the second verify by google failed. So i have deactive all plugins, rescanned my website but nothing. In total i have tried verify 4 times without success.
    My website now is clean for all antimalware and antivirus programs and services but not for google. How can i fix this problem? I don't want change my domain for google's caprice.
    If i post one link that for google is infected, someone can help me to find the "malicious" code?

    If Google cited specific URLs then PM a couple to me and I'll see if anything stands out. I know from other clients that Cross Site Scripting is a common culprit. This occurs when users can modify a URL or submit content that appears on site with arbitrary HTML.

    I don't see anything wrong on these pages. Could it be that Google is receiving takedown notices for videos you are not authorized to stream? In a 2013 report Google said they remove 97% of those requests from the search indexes. https://docs.google.com/file/d/0BwxyRPFduTN2dVFqYml5UENUeUE/edit?pli=1


    PS... you can edit you comment and remove your URLs to make them private again. :)

    Thanks again. Now i have removed some embedded links that open automatic popup. After google review, i'll write here the results and what i've done. It could help somebody else have my problem to fix it.

    Problem solved! The problem was the embedded link code of one streaming service. It opens on mobile device phishing popup. If someone need help P.M. me.
