Google webmaster tools flagged a couple of old threads as problems.  I deleted them and asked them to review the site again.  What I'm seeing is that that can take anywhere from a couple of hours to a couple of days.

Wish you hadn't done that. It's not just flagging a couple of threads, those examples are just that a couple of examples and I was using those to try and get some more information from Google

Apparently google is now flagging every site without an SSL certificate as potentially dangerous.   :rolleyes:

 

This is a solvable problem, but it will take a few days.  Would you folks on facebook spread the word to people there and let them know what's going on?

I'm not sure that's the case. I go to some other forums with no SSL cert and they aren't flagged.

They are in the process of rolling it out now.  I got a notice a month or so ago about our other website.  That's an ecommerce site that already had SSL, so no issues there.  I didn't realize they were going to want it here too.

This still doesn't seem all that likely. They're going to cut off a lot of sites that have ZERO reason to even have an SSL cert (like brews-bros.xyz) ... You can get through the warning after multiple clicks (or presumably a whitelist of some sort).. seems dumb.


Google makes the distinction between "not secure" and "dangerous":

 

 

httpss://support.google.com/chrome/answer/95617?visit_id=1-636414410101610046-4094715222&p=ui_security_indicator&rd=1

 

 

 

"Dangerous: Avoid this site. If you see a full-page red warning screen, the site has been flagged as unsafe by Safe Browsing. Using the site will likely put your private information at risk."

 

 

Brews-bros is being marked Dangerous, not simply "Not Secure"
