Security Prompts Plague Some Google Webmaster Tool Users

Mar 12, 2008 • 8:30 am | comments (2) by twitter Google+ | Filed Under Google Search Engine Optimization

A WebmasterWorld thread has a few users complaining that every time they login to Google Webmaster Tools, they are prompted with a security warning by their browser. The warning is similar to this:

Google Security Warning

Supposedly, it is not just Google Webmaster Tools. One member complains it has to do with AdSense's console as well.

I can tell you that I rarely personally get this warning and it might just be the nature of the user's browser. There is no official word from a Google representative on this matter, at the time I publish this piece.

Forum discussion at WebmasterWorld.

Barry, this has been going on for quite some time. I've mentioned it at WebmasterWorld at least twice over the past year or so. Its just something many of us have come to accept. You have to wonder why they can't serve their content correctly under https vs http and vice versa. P.S. I get hit with the same error after "Previewing" my post, something not being served properly in that process. ;)
