Stronger Google Safe Browsing

Google Safe Browsing, or Google Safe Browsing, seems to be getting tougher on repeat offenders.

This particular Google service discovers and protects against end-user endangering sites by forbidding access to them. So suspicious sites for cheating users through malware, unwanted software, phishing or other regular social engineering are blocked by the service.Google Safe Browsing

"Over time, we have noticed that a small number of websites that stop harming users for quite some time manage to remove Google Safe Browsing alerts. Then they come back with harmful activities, "said Brooke Heinichen of the Safe Browsing Team.

So as of today, once Safe Browsing determines that a webpage is a "relapse", the webmaster of the page will have to wait at least 30 days to be able to request a review from the Search Console.

Heinichen also assured that webmasters who have declared that their site is hacked, and are used to doing it repeatedly will not be taken seriously.

So this move is in a way a gentle push for webmasters to take the security of their web pages more seriously.
