Google Ads not working due to Malware

Recommended Posts

Site URL: https://secondchanceagency.com/

Hi all,

We can't run google ads to our website due it flagging for malware. I have reported this to Google and asked them to highlight which files are causing the problem but due to Covid limitations on their services they haven't got back to me.

Could you please advise the best way of detecting and removing the malware and taking steps to ensure this doesn't happen again?

This is a very frustrating situation not least because Google is very hands-off when it comes to telling you what the problem is and that even when you speak to Google Ads a support technician might be able to tell you everything is all fine and then the robot comes back and finds the error.

We have had a situation like this before and it was actually due to a third-party code that was running on a website that Google had deemed to contain code that could be used for unhealthy purposes.

IE It was nothing to do with the ads at all.

Therefore in this situation the first thing I would advise you to do is stop all third-party codes from running on your website. Google code will not be a problem. After you have done this, request a review of your ads and see if that fixes it. If it does, then you can find ways of re-adding the codes one by one back into your pages.

You might also check to see whether you are running any out of date libraries, for example JQUERY updated quite recently and I know that this caused a number of wordpress websites to go offline.

Frustrating, I know, but you should be able to fix it.
