Understanding The Blacklisting Process

Google alone blacklists 10,000 websites every day. With over 100 blacklisting authorities, that means a lot of websites are being blocked for serving malicious content. When a website is blacklisted, it loses nearly 95% of organic traffic, causing serious risks to your business and its brand.

Maintaining your website integrity and reputation is a big responsibility. Blacklisting authorities feel the same way about protecting their users. They will quickly flag your website if they have evidence that it could be harmful. Most often a malicious payload is hidden on your website that could possibly infect visitors, including executable files, trojan horses, phishing schemes, Pharma hacks, and information scrapers. Most of the time, the website owner is not aware that they've been hacked until it is too late.

The Blacklisting Business

Search engines have built a business on providing valuable results to their users. It is in their best interest to avoid listing web spam or malicious content without sufficient warnings. Similarly, desktop antivirus programs have a responsibility to keep its users computer protected from viruses, and a common way to do this is to block access to websites that are known to distribute drive-by-downloads and malicious payloads.

Blacklist Causes and Effects

Blocking pages and alerts will usually include a link to more information about what was found, such as samples, categorizations, or statistics related to the malicious content detected on the affected website. Once the website has been flagged, the authority pushes blacklisting results to its network. This means if anyone is using their specific product, the visitor will see a warning when accessing the website.

Compound Blacklisting

These authorities also leverage partner networks. Whenever a website is blacklisted, the result propagates through the entire network, prompting other authorities to investigate and block the malicious website. That is why it's important to engage with the original blacklisting authority before others take notice. Whether you're already blacklisted or are looking to prevent your site from being blacklisted, we can help you regardless of your CMS or hosting provider.
