A number of websites display a 'warning' sign, such as 'This site may harm your system' or something like that! That means that it has malware. Google takes this voluntary approach to save the user's systems from being infected by malwares.

But what if your own site being labeled for malware? If you find this label on your site, then you have to clear away the malware from your site and also inform Google about the same.

After it is removed, you need to tune in to the Google Webmaster Tools and request a review. Follow the process and get that label removed from your site!

A recent thread at Google Webmaster Help says,

“Webmasters are eager to have a Google malware label removed from their site and often ask how long a review of the site will take. Both the original scanning and the review process are fully automated. The systems analyze large portions of the internet, which is big place, so the review may not happen immediately. Ideally, the label will be removed within a few hours. At its longest, the process should take a day or so.”

Log on to Webmaster Central Blog to know more about it!
