I noticed this happening last night, and it's doing it again today.
When I try to open one of my articles on Feltmagnet my site advisor software warns me that it may be very risky to visit.
Why is this happening?
Not sure about other niche sites.
Anyone else seeing this?
The warning from McAfee is a false positive. HubPages and the Network Sites are safe. You can check safe browsing site status using this tool from Google: https://transparencyreport.google.com/s … ing/search
Matt, This is all fine and dandy, but the problem still remains that McAfee is blocking all their users from HubPages. This is a serious thing. Is there any way staff can communicate with the proper personnel at McAfee and get this straightened out?
Others says it's only happening to FeltMagnet, but I have seen a 24% drop in traffic across all niche sites since this began. Branden said that there may be other reasons for the drop in addition to McAfee. But it needs to be checked out in my opinion.
Agreed Glenn, we may know the site is safe, but presumably anyone using McAfee does not, and I doubt anyone is going to take the time to check the status using a google tool. Hopefully it's being checked out and can be fixed.
I've reported this issue to McAfee. The anonymizer warning is clearly a false positive. This issue should be resolved soon.
Matt has reported it, but Glenn, if it were this issue only Feltmagnet would be affected, not the other niche sites. Also, the drop coincides perfectly with a Google update. Also, as I pointed in some other post, this is an important issue that needed to be fixed too, not saying it isn't.
I'm sorry Matt but that is not really helpful, like Glenn and Glimmer said it doesn't matter if we know it is safe, it is still going to stop people going there and if possible something needs to be done.
I would never click "accept the risk" to see a site with that kind of warning, especially if I found it on a google search. I would just click back and move on another sites.
Why does only Feltmagnet come up as "Website category: Anonymizers" and the other niche sites don't?

Hi,Do more experienced Hubbers have any useful tips for getting your article moved to a niche site? I kept seeing advice that goes something like "make sure you write a high-quality article" but it just seems so vague to me. I have 9 articles now and the only one that was moved to a niche...
