    Deceptive content: http link in the WordPress plugin script used in the page?


    We have recently received "Social engineering content" warning from Google. One of our important pages and it's internal links have been marked with "Deceptive site ahead" notice. But we don't employ any such content as mentioned by Google.

    We are using a WordPress plugin for the layout of the page. The script in the page source contains two http links. Do you think these links are reason behind getting this notice from Google?

    Google usually doesn't send out notices like that as a whim.

    Without seeing the source page, without seeing the destination site, best I can offer, is listen to what Google is warning you about. Since you are so close to the problem, maybe you need a fresh set of eyes on it.

    I will say, you seem to understand what Google is complaining about though, so maybe you are pushing the envelope on this.

    It may have to do with the fact that your site may be requiring visitors to install a plugin to view content correctly. Not having seen the page, that is just an educated guess.
    If you have never failed in your life, you have never achieved anything Noteworthy !
