I've been reading a lot about McAfee's popular site adviser recently and most of it has not been good. Reports from trusted sources are suggesting that MSA's site ratings are often way out of date....as long as 12 months old has been mentioned. Site administrators have been complaining, and rightly so, about how the incorrect ratings have been adversely affecting their overall traffic. One such administrator stated that his site was initially rated yellow by MSA but three months after he had removed the offending material/links the rating remained the same....tut tut McAfee!! Accuracy is paramount where security is concerned and if MSA is rating some good sites as bad then I suspect the reverse may also be happening.
So, I decided to take a look at some alternatives:
1) LinkScanner - available in both [url=http://linkscanner.explabs.com/linkscanner/default.aspx:2ejww3ng]online[/url:2ejww3ng] and [url=http://www.explabs.com/products/lslite.asp:2ejww3ng]offline[/url:2ejww3ng] (installed) versions.
2) [url=https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/10777:2ejww3ng]LinkExtend[/url:2ejww3ng] - Add-on for Firefox with extensive range of configurable options.
3) [url=http://www.mywot.com/:2ejww3ng]WOT[/url:2ejww3ng] - [b:2ejww3ng]W[/b:2ejww3ng]eb [b:2ejww3ng]O[/b:2ejww3ng]f [b:2ejww3ng]T[/b:2ejww3ng]rust, largely fuelled by user input.
I settled for LinkExtend in Firefox and WOT in Internet Explorer. There are pros and cons for all these products but I really liked LinkExtend the best. Take a look, tell me what you think.
