It seems that Google is having a bit of a wobble this afternoon (UK time) as it is marking every single website as being potentially harmful to your website.

The warning message reads: This site may harm your computer

It is quite obviously a glitch – as they should only display that where the Google-bot detect dangerous software (malware) on the website which could infect your own computer with a virus or other problematic hacks.

I am sure there are Google engineers running around the office right now trying to pull the plug on this!

Still, nice to know that even the mighty Google isn’t infallible 😉

(update: about half an hour after the glitch started, it was fixed and the fun ended)

This site may harm your computer

Google even thinks itself is infected with bad things – which as they are the one having the glitch right now, is slightly appropriate.

This website has been running now for just over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether its a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what your read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you
