A few days ago my site was infected with Malware. I've sinced removed it and all is well. However, logging into the back end of my CMS I get the malware warning again.

I've followed the instructions which incdicates you can request a review of the site in Webmaster Tools. However, WM Tools says the site is free of malware.

Is there anything I can do to get rid of Googles block?

  • Which CMS are you using, and can you be more specific about the Malware warning you're getting? Apr 5, 2013 at 15:51

What you need to do is request a Malware Review which is not the same as a usual reconsideration request as it is handled by an entire different team. You do this from the Webmaster Tools.

Google explains all the steps in the process here. If all you are missing is the Review, see here.


Google has a formal process for considering removing manual actions taken against sites in violation of its guidelines.

You can submit a "Request reconsideration" with Google: http://support.google.com/webmasters/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=35843

This video may help explain the process as well: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=cA5I3HHApYk#!
