Within half a week, 6 of my 10 domains got flagged as "damaging", what is going on?

    You know that red window that comes up before your site that warns users that the content will "damage" their computers? I must have set a record for the time that it went up.

    I bought 10 dating domains from a reputable domain company (domain.com) to redirect to my dating CPA offers. That's all I did, I just set up redirect on every domain yet somehow, within 4 days of registering these domains, 6 of them now have that warning on them!

    All I did was put up redirects so I have no idea what could have possibly triggered the flagging on them. Plus, why did 6 get flagged while the other 4 went free despite being identical?

    I am pretty pissed since I bought all .coms so I just lost over $100 (registration and privacy).

    Does anyone know how I can prevent this or how they decide to recognize a site as having "damaging" content?

    I don't want to spend another $100 only to have my domains smacked down within 4 days without even doing anything with them!

    I've had a few domains flagged as hosting malware mostly by people spamming
    AV's affiliate links once my solicitors tore McAfee a new asshole they removed all
    references. We are still persuing compensation from certain sites.

    it is better to get .tk domains and redirect them in my opinion!
    there is a lower conversion rate but if it gets that warning just move on!
    you have not lost any money in buying the domain

    You can always request your sites to be manually removed and if they are legitimant and nothing shady is going on, they will remove the site from popping up warnings.

    Where is the warning coming from? Google? If it's google (or firefox using google data) then simply submit a review via the google webmasters tools section.


    If the domains are redirecting to the same CPA offers, it's possible that the CPA offer hosted by the network was hit by a virus that loads the malware, so it's not your domains that are causing the issue, rather the site you're redirecting to. But since you're using a 301 redirect, you get hit with the label as well.


    Step 1, find out where the cause of the warning is coming from. Use firebug or other webmaster development extension for firefox to look for malicious code.

    Step 2, FIX the problem that caused you to be flagged. If it's coming from the CPA, then find another CPA offer that isn't bugged.

    Step 3, contact whomever is showing the flag (google/mcafee/etc) and ask for a review and de-listing.
