"Google has been protecting users against dangerous and harmful websites for many years by warning web surfers when they accidentally click on links that could lead them to sites that spread malware or attempt to phish for your private information. But many sites figured out how to work around Google's policies. Instead of cleaning up their act, they would instead temporarily make adjustments so their site would appear to be compliant when Google verified it, then return to harming users once Google's warnings were removed. Now, Google says it's putting a stop to this behavior by classifying these sites as 'repeat offenders' and enforcing stricter penalties." (11/09/16)
