sometimes my blog is designated as a dangerous website

  1. Hi,
    A long time ago I searched for my blog on my friend's computer and the server would not let me access the page because it said it was a dangerous website. I didn't think much of it until recently I was told by several people that they have received the same message. Can you please help with this?

    Thanks,
    Laura

    The blog I need help with is lolabees.me.

  2. I took a look and everything is working properly.

    Could you send us a screenshot of the page where you're seeing this?

  3. This is the first time I have seen this on facebook, but a friend just sent me a screenshot... except, I don't see an attach button here! Please let me know the best way to get it to you. Thanks.

  4. Hi there,

    One can indeed not upload pictures to the forums.
    Could you simply upload it to your media library (https://lolabees.wordpress.com/wp-admin/media-new.php) and post the link here? No need to embed the pict in a blog post, the link will suffice.

    FYI: we only need to see the error to defnie of it's a Facebook one, a browser safe browsing one, etc to be able to take the appropriate actions.

    Thanks.

    This link is Facebook, but I have also had it happen while typing it into a browser. Both times this has been reported to me it happened on someone's work computer.

    Thanks!

  6. Ah yes, those are Facebook notices indeed. They would only appear for people following links from Facebook to your site, not for any other users.

    This type of message being presented to their users is often the result of:
    * someone having reported one of your posts as spam, offensive, or some other type of complaint on Facebook. Now, don't panic, this happens all the time, People are known to flag things they might simply disagree with as offensive. :)
    * they match a word in your post title, description or URL that could be deemed suspicious by their own algorithms. In that case, I'm not certain since it's not on the WordPress.com end, but maybe "cult" triggered it.

    I believe there might be a process on Facebook to have a link re-evaluated, and the message removed. I'll ask, but you might also find it in their documentation: https://www.facebook.com/help/
