    Why would a Hub that is my most successful suddenly get "this site has a bad reputation," tag on it?

    This hub has been up for a long time and has had more hits than any of my other hubs.  I was reading the forum about peoples' hubs being copied, so I looked this one up just to see if it would show up.  I was surprised to see that it had a bad reputation.  I don't even know what that means when posted on the net.  Does anyone know what that could mean?

    Efficient Admin brought this up a few weeks ago. Where did you see it? Is it for all of your hubs? I checked Moxilla, IE explorer, and Google Chrome and could not find it. No idea what it means and how it affects traffic, so sorry I cannot answer that question for you.

      I saw it on Yahoo search.  Went to Bing, but it wasn't  by the articles.  I tried to research who was responsible for even putting these notations on an article and best I could find was it may have something to do with Avasti.

      Thanks, I am going to check mine on Yahoo too. Most of my page views come from Google, and maybe that is why there are not many from Yahoo.

    I see that this has already been answered, but I do actually have an answer to this question for you, and I hope that I can be of some help.

    A page can get a "bad reputation" if "bad neighborhood" pages and domains link to it. For example, if a site that is known for malware or viruses is linking out to your page (which is common) in enough volume, you can get a "bad neighborhood" reputation itself.

    You have no control over this: The malware sites do.

    As far as how you get tagged and labeled this way, it's part of Page Rank as far as I can tell.
