We process re-evaluation requests in the order they are received. As soon as our re-evaluation is complete, we will send you an email notification. You can revisit the Norton Safe Web report to view the updated rating for your website.
To register your website, signup for a Safe Web account if you haven't already done so. Then sign in to your account and go to "My Profile". Choose the "site management" tab and use the "Add site" link to submit your site name. When registering a website to your profile, please make sure to do the following:
Any typographical errors will prevent successful completion of the website registration process, so please be accurate when entering the information.
When you successfully register the site, you will receive an email explaining two methods for ownership verification.
After your website is registered, it needs to be submitted for ownership verification. You will receive an email explaining two methods for ownership verification, and the same will be available on the "site management" tab of your profile page.
To start the verification process, click on "Verify your site".
You can check the website name you entered is correct by clicking on the website name link next to "Verifying site". If you're unable to access your site through this link, double-check the spelling or the protocol entered and make corrections as needed.
Then select one of the two site verification methods: meta tag or upload an HTML file.
When using the first method to add a meta tag into your website's home page, please be aware of the following placement and content issues.
Meta Tag Placement
The <meta> tag must be placed in the <head> section, before the first <body> section.
Meta Tag Content
The authentication code string must exactly match the generated string. Be careful when copying or inserting the string so that no extra characters are inserted, including spaces or formatting characters. Depending on your editing tool, it may add some formatting information, so be sure to compare the copied data with your source to make sure that it exactly matches with the original string. Also, be sure that no spaces are entered before, after, or in-between the beginning and ending quotes for the content information.
<meta name="norton-safeweb-site-verification" content="actual_string_content_with_no_spaces_or_line_feed_or_formatting_characters"/>
Note that some template-based / quick design site-building programs may allow the creation of custom meta tags through a user interface or "wizard" tool. When using your meta tag wizard, do not use the HTML code characters such as </>/". These will be inserted automatically by your program.
To create a custom meta tag:
If you are unable to place a new meta tag on your website home page, add the authentication code string to your list of keywords. For example:
<meta name="keywords" content="keyword1, keyword2, nsw-actual_string_content_with_no_spaces_or_line_feed_or_formatting_characters"/>
Once you have added the meta tag to your homepage, click on the orange "Verify Now" button.
The second verification method requires that you add an HTML authentication file at the root folder of your website. If you select the verification method as "Upload an HTML file", click the provided link to download the authentication file.
Once you click on the link, a popup window will be displayed indicating a file download (note, this window may look different depending on what browser you're using). "Save" the file to a convenient location on your computer.
Using your site building program, upload / copy the saved HTML file to the Root Directory of your website.
(Please note the nortonsw file is not within a sub-folder)
Once you confirm the upload is successful, click on the orange "Verify Now" button.
If you have correctly completed the site verification process, you should see "ownership verified" in the status column next to your site name on the site management page.
Once your website ownership verification is complete, you may remove the HTML file from the root folder or remove the authentication code you entered in the meta tags. Before removal, please make sure that you see the ownership verified status under the "site management" tab in your Norton Safe Web account.
If you host your website on Google sites, follow these steps to complete the site verification:
