One of my hubs shows it has a malicious link. what do I do about it? How do I take care of it? How do I find it?
I think if you click on malicious links in your dashboard, it will list the hub. it should be highlighted within the context.
I'm not sure, but I know that's how it works for broken links.
once you find it, go in and edit and remove the link.
okay, thanks. I was really worried about going into the hub. silly me!
Sometimes a malicious link may not be anything bad for your computer (like a virus site etc), it may just not be something approved by adsense. I got a warning when I put in a link exchange site on one of my hubs - adsense doesn't approve of any form of recompense for traffic or ad clicks.
Anyway you must have been to the site before, so unless the site has changed, it shouldn't be a problem. Just remove it and all will be fine again.

A reader noted that he would have liked to see the links in my posts open in a new tab/window so that he could easily look at and reference multiple articles at the same time. I don't think this is necessary on all links, of course. But I do think that especially on links that go away from...
