Google Adwords won't accept my friend's Adword campaign because they say there is malicious code on this site.

I went to wix and made him and his friend a simple site.

Now they say they can't get ads on google because google says I have malicious code on the site.

 

Did I mess this up somehow?

I can't see how I could have messed this up.  I put their pictures and words on a one-page website.  Goodness me.

EDIT:  Ok.  A website detector thing said this site redirects to browsehappy.com or something.

Yet...when I try to find something in this site that has anything to do with browsehappy.com I can't find anything.

Aside from the code Wix.com puts in that doesn't validate, you might try correcting the HTML code (CSS can also be validated at w3c) and recheck to see if you get the "malicious code" warning. Possibly remove any Javascript that is not absolutely necessary and recheck. I don't know if your links are check where an external site might actually be causing the problem, but you can temporarily comment these out and recheck for the warning you get. Google Tools may help you too. 

 

Browsehappy.com seems to be a foreign website that seems to check if an outdated browser is being used. I tried findingit in your source code and didn't see it. Doesn't mean some code is sending you somewhere that you get a redirect to this site. Possibly make sure your browser(s) is/are updated and see if warning is still generated.

 

The long and tedious way is to comment/uncomment code sections by code sections rechecking to see is same warning is given.

Thank you thank you thank you so much!

You are certainly most welcome. I am very interested as to what you find as the solution.

 

As to the validation, both HTML and CSS, many of the warnings can be ignored. Especially if it is code generated by sites like wix.com, which generate code because of the methods used to make your site on the server(s). Many of the offered templates seem to have site specific coding. Normally, if I have paid for my domain name and paid for hosting, I delete ALL code generated by the host site on my pages. I paid for it and will code my pages my way. The warnings/errors on your CSS should be paid a little more attention to. Afterall, it is used to present your page for the browsers to parse and gives you the look you want for your site.

 

You, I believe, are using HTML5. The structure of HTML5 syntax is hard for some people to grasp. Thankfully, it is the best forgiving doc type now and adhereing to the exact HTML5 structure is very very relaxed. I've seen pages coded with mostly div tags using an HTML5 doc type. :D More and more people seem to like the "backward compatibility" of HTML5. I'm probably one of the few who actually loved coding to XHTML which is very strict. :P HTML5 sold me when it introduce some terrific new tags and structure. CSS3 is almost todie for. LOL

 

Good luck and a very Merry Christmas.
