    Hello all, do you know how to make this icon green (safe) instead of Grey (unsafe)?

    The icon is not placed there by Google. You must have the SiteAdvisor toolbar installed. This toolbar adds the icons.

    The grey doesn't mean unsafe. It means the site was not reviewed. So click the "Submit for testing" button and wait until you site is reviewed.

    I'm using their toolbar and want to see green instead of Grey.

    What would you do if you'll see 2 websites in search and one will have green circle and another Grey, where would you go first?

    I think you'll find 99% of people on the internet dont even have McAfee toolbar installed so its pointless and a waste of time to care about.

    Hi HiTech,
    McAfee site advisor will scan your website at their random schedule and give you a 'green check'. From what I've experienced before, it might take up to a few months. So don't waste your time resubmit for testing.

    I'd never heard of it... try to put the McAfee Seal of approval on your site...?

    The best way to get rid of this gray rating is to uninstall the McAfee toolbar. :)

    Then you will be able to sleep at night.
