Support » Plugin: Anti-Malware Security and Brute-Force Firewall » Google ads rejected because malicious links found on the site.

  • Resolved hoci2019


    My google ads were rejected because when checking my site google found these 2 suspicious links:

    Can anyone tells me where in the site these two links are likely to be found?

    I ran the malware plugin “Anti-Malware from GOTMLS.NET” but nothing came up.

    I ran “Google Safe Browsing Diagnostic” and everything came out okay.


    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    It looks like your site is clean now. Google might be responding to their cache from before. What does Webmaster Tools say (Google Search Console)?

    Hey hoci2019,
    Did you get to fix the problem and reactivate your ads on Google Ads?

    I’m in the same situation and I’d like to know what you did to fix it.

    Thank you.

    In general it takes Google an annoyingly long time to re-assess the status of your site after an infection was detected. Once their bots finally decide to re-index the formerly infected pages on your site then they should be able to approve your ads again. Until the re-indexing occurs they will only respond to you based on the cached pages of your site that they seethe malware on. You can use the Google Search Console (formerly called Webmaster Tools) to request a review and submit a current sitemap, which may help expedite the process, but it can still take (sometimes even weeks) to get all the cached pages re-indexed.

    If you want help with your site it would be better to post your own URL not the URL of the malware that was supposedly detected on your site. I don’t think that the WordPress Forum Moderators like it when people post malicious links on the forum.



    thank you @scheeeli for information

    This topic is resolved!

    As I keep saying, it takes time for Google to respond to these types of issues.

    If you want more help with your specific problem then you need to post more details bout your specific situation, Like URLs and screenshots that illustrate where you are at in the process or cleaning up your site’s reputation after the infection was removed. What does Webmaster Tools look like, any issues flagged there?
