    Website listed as scam


    Hello;

    I got a client who has a problem with a blog. The blog has listed their name as scammer website but they are not scammers.

    Is ther anyways they could be removed from that blog?

    Thank you

    First thing would be to check for some advertising or rogue code that's causing it - maybe an IFRAME or redirect or something hosted on another site which itself is "scammy".

    What is the website's URL and what is the blog that is listing it as a scam. Also, how do you know that the website didn't have any scammy content previously?

    The blog causing the issue is a forum where someone has linked another site with the one whose reputation is being affected.

    So why not post both links here and let the members judge whether it was a spammy site or not?
