I don't know why this hub has been published for a year or better and I have not added anymore links or videos or new photos. Has anyone else had this problem? I check webmaster tools no messages and no problems.
This hub potentially contains malicious links based on advisory provided by the Google Safe Browsing service. It remains published, but is likely to be unpublished by a moderator if you do not fix the problem. Please remove all such links from your hubs. To learn more about the problem, please visit the Google FAQ page or learn more by reviewing information at http://www.antiphishing.org/ (for phishing warnings) or http://www.stopbadware.org/ (for malware warnings).
I had this problem once; it was because of an old link which was essentially abandoned and not ever updated or used, but still had the information I wanted to provide to supplement the hub. I got rid of the link and found a pretty good alternative to it. That solved the problem. I think old, unused and never updated sites come up as phishing and malware.
The offending link is usually marked in yellow so you can remove it. Sites change over time and may do such things trying to use their outbound links supposedly to gain advantage, maybe? I haven't had of those in a long time but checking is usually one of my first things done when I arrive to HP. Hope you figure out which one it is.
I knew it couldn't have been one of my links so I checked my photos it was a link under the photo. What surprises me its a Wikipedia link I still gave credit just the link is not click-able right now.
Thanks for a Heads Up!
Hi tamron - I've had this happen before, even on a video. I removed the particular video and the hub was fine again. It's probably a good idea to go back and check the links on older hubs every now and then to avoid this sort of thing. I'm glad your question has been answered.
I've gotten the same warning on one of my hubs. I deleted one of my links that I thought might have been the problem, but the warning remains -- although the long narrative warning you quote above no longer shows up on my hub.. I've tried removing the video link, but that doesn't work either. None of my linked have that yellow outline that usually identifies the offending link. The warning threatens to unpublish the hub if the problem is not fixed, but how can I fix it if I don't know what the problem is?
If you go to the hub and click on the warning that's in the black box at the top, it will expand into an explanation that includes a list of the urls that are problematic at the bottom. If the warning no longer appears on the hub itself, then you've solved the problem. However, in order to clear the warning on the hub listing page you have to either wait (it will run automatically eventually) or click on the "check for violations now" link at the bottom of the page.
This is not exactly the same thing--I've not had a "malicious" link warning...but I have had several 'broken link' warnings that I had to go back and tell it to ignore, because there was nothing wrong with the links at all!
However, I recently got a warning about "too many links to a single domain."
I'm sorry, but it was not to a sales site; it was an information site, and it's a pretty big site, so I wanted each reference to take the reader directly to the referenced material in that particular section/paragraph of my article, instead of making them page through the whole site searching--we know people won't do that--most are too impatient.
So...I left the links as they were, because they each go to a different page within that site, with different information. Is that likely to get my hub unpublished? It's really a very important educational piece for pet safety.
