    Why would my website's safety be listed as "very poor"?

    I checked the domain name for my site in my signature at webstatsdomain and they listed its safety as "very poor".

    I wouldn't know the first thing about using a website for pernicious purposes so why would my site get a rating like that? Can someone else hijack my site for evil and how would I tell? I go to my own site all the time and never notice anything wrong. I don't even have banner ads. Btw, it's a video news aggregate site.

    Lastly, how can I change the bad rating?

    Also, can this explain my low traffic? I see other people with less attractive aggregate sites with great traffic and better ratings than mine. I don't see how they do it. Thanks.

    This tool?

    Thedailysearch.com - Thedailysearch - Website Analysis

    If it's that tool, I'll save you a whole bunch of time. It's a junk science tool based on garbage populated by an SEO community that has no idea what it's talking about.

    Thanks for the info. I emailed them about it. Kind of ridiculous that they make up stuff about websites. Maybe someone had one bad experience on my site and that was it? Or perhaps competitors? Who knows?

    It's all "algorithm." They look at the "net worth" of sites such as Google, Yahoo!, etc. and extrapolate net worth of other people's sites from there, including "estimated income". They also use third-party tools and extract data to give you a "comprehensive estimate" of the safety and security of the site.

    It's all automated, and it's all garbage.
