SERPGuard is launched in beta today. The system is built in Ruby on Rails using the new Safe Browsing API that Google has helpfully made available. We built this application as part of our in-house client suite but decided to release it publicly. Hope you enjoy.

You create an account, log in and add all your sites into one simple interface. If our system detects any of your URLs on the Google phishing or malware blacklists, it will send you an RSS message and email immediately.

Thanks Donna, glad you like. It’s been a bit of a rapid development cycle on this one so definitely a beta release. If you find an issue let me know.

Thanks John :) Let the powers that be know the API documentation was very good! I wonder if you could help with one point though that left me a little confused? When a user needs to remove their site from your phishing and malware lists, can they do that entirely through StopBadware.org using the form they provide or do they *need* to use the form in GWC? Or do both methods work but the Google one is better-supported and faster?I got the feeling that StopBadware.org could deal with malware but not phishing listings? If GWC is an essential step is there any chance you can provide a form outside that system? So people aren’t required to register with Google to deal with this issue?

Hi Nick, in general it’s usually quicker to submit the malware review request through Webmaster Tools. Since these reviews take a bit of work on our side, we want to make sure that only the verified webmaster(s) submit them, which is why they’re within Webmaster Tools. In addition, I believe Webmaster Tools provides additional information which can help the webmaster to find and remove the bad code. FYI, here’s a screenshot of what it generally looks like within Webmaster Tools: http://tinyurl.com/5to6tvOf course, if you’re serious enough about your website to care about malware being placed on it, you should have verified your site in Webmaster Tools anyway - the diagnostic information can help save your site from technical issues impacting the search results, I woudn’t want to miss that.
