Numerous customers that have had phishing issues reported to them as a result of Google’s Safe Browsing program have taken care of said issues. The URL(s) reported to them either return a 404 or 5xx error but the URL stays listed, according to the GSB’s API, for weeks afterwards.
Does anyone know:
- Is there some kind of expiry time on URLs flagged as unsafe by GSB
- Is there some way for us (the provider) to trigger a review of the URL to speed this process up?
Harassing the client to login to the webmaster portal and request a review can be a cat herding exercise.
Thanks for any info you might have.
