Great information indeed. Helpful for the website owners to stay certified by biggies like Norton. Greetings a good ranking from such firms will really go a long way to get better traffic to the site.

Vogus information. Every body is stuck up at this stage. How to proceed further? Up to this it is ok but finally it is observed that the site is not verified with Norton safe web.

Thank you for this article. You provided everything I needed to get my website verified. I am wondering though; should I review my own website? I like to stay away from reviewing my own site and business. But in the case of Norton Web Safe, I am thinking that it might be pertinent for the developer to leave a message in the reviews. Thanks again, your article was most helpful.
