We wanted to alert you that one of your sites violates our advertising

Here's what you can do to fix your site and hopefully get your ad running

Hi Alex,


Here's Virus Total's scan results for the URL. I don't find any malware issues with the website.


Could be possible that Google found malware before it was removed by anti virus - just a thought Smiley Happy


You can request a site review here and wait for Google to get back!


Good luck,

Hi Sumanth,

I did request a site review.

I posted this problem at same time on "Google Webmaster Central Help Forum" they recommended me to update WordPress and plugins also... that is lot a job because I customize some plugins and theme.
