Google Webmaster Tools Offers Malware Review

Aug 15, 2007 • 10:07 am | comments (0) by | Filed Under Google Search Engine Optimization

The Google Webmaster Central Blog announced earlier this week that it will begin starting to offer malware reviews of websites. The process is simple: you can view a list of dangerous URLs in the Webmaster Tools, make any changes according to security tips, request a malware review from Google, and check the status of your review.

This is very cool, and it's great to see how Google is taking a vested interest in the webmaster community on a regular basis.

As a DigitalPoint Forums says:

Google webmaster tool is awesome for webmaster, and it's really good to inform webmaster of the problem instead of google taking it's own decision.

With Google taking a more proactive stance in emailing webmasters about malware and providing warning notifications for sites infested by malware, this was a next logical step. I like it.
