I went, today, to check and see if any of my articles had been plagiarized. What I found was even worse. Avast, my virus protection provider, and one of the largest in the world, leaves a little mark beside each site on google to tell you if it is safe. They indicate that all Hubpages are unsafe and have a bad reputation. Why? How can we change this? I am sure people would avoid our hubs from google if avast is telling them it has a bad rep
I have submitted my feedback that the website is great with a thumbs up. Can you all please do the same?
Are you sure its not your browser cfin? I took a look at mine and it seems to be fine, nothing next to it at all.
This has already been addressed in a recent forum thread. http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/121054#post2566914
I too raised the same concern over forum and have received some fine comments. Please check it in on my profile page.

I recently installed Avast anti-virus free edition. It puts little icons next to google search results to tell you if the site is safe or not. It seems that every hubpages link in search results has a yellow marker...

I was looking to add some info on a Hub of mine last night and saw something a bit discouraging when I ran across my own Hub on page 2 in Google. Decided to do more investigating this morning, and found that 5 of the 6...
