As of today, once we notice your site is infected, we’ll do our best to send an e-mail to the address you have associated with your account in Webmaster Tools. We believe malware is such an important issue for site owners that being quickly informed is beneficial to you and your website’s visitors.

This would help in taking immediate action and avoid loss of potential traffic.

Google, thank you for making this available. I for one appreciate your GWT platform and this is an excellent addition to an already great set of tools.

I'm following this particular topic closely as there have been hundreds if not thousands of topics with "My Website has been Hacked!" over the years. The damage from these hacks can be temporary or it can be long term. Many folks never get to the root of the problem and the malware still exists but they can't "see" it. Well, Google is here for you, they've got your back, and theirs too. I'm sure they don't want to see any more of these type topics... ;)

I did a search on Google for property in Dubai while participating in another WebmasterWorld topic. I clicked on one of the top results. Firefox froze for a few seconds and then the maliciousness began. There were so many popups that I couldn't figure out who was who. There were three Windows Security Alerts and they all looked similar. There were other alerts blended in that looked like Windows Security. At that point, it was too late. My audio had been modified, all sorts of weird stuff had taken place and I shut down and disconnected from the Internet. That's when all the crap started.


Malicious Links and Loss of Traffic

I think ALL providers of search results need to take this type of action. Did you hear that Yabing! :)

This would help in taking immediate action and avoid loss of potential traffic.


Google are being very proactive in this area. And quite a few other areas that encroach on the Surface SEOs job security. ;)
