Google blacklist – No way to request a review for the last two days

We are seeing a big issue on Google for the last few days. Whenever a site got blacklisted, you had the option to request a review after the site was clean.

However, for the last few days Google is not giving the option to users to request a review. It only says the standard message with no review button:

Unfortunately, Google has discovered harmful code on your site.
Some of the infected pages are listed below. Google is providing these pages as a starting point in your investigation and clean-up process. Please also use’s Guide to Cleaning and Securing your Website to identify, address, and prevent any malware activity on your site. Important: Simply removing harmful code from individual pages is not enough to fix the problem; you must also ensure that you identify and address the underlying vulnerabilities that allowed your site to be contaminated.

We were able to see this issue on a few sites ourselves (that we fixed during the weekend) and we still have no option to review them. Quite a few people are also complaining about it on their forums.

Another interesting thing is that the main page for the webmasters tools is not showing the malware warning as well (you have to click on Diagnostics->malware to see it). All in all, a bad day to be blacklisted.

If your site is hacked and/or blacklisted, we can help. Contact us at or go to to get your site blacklist-free to get your site blacklist-free.
