How would I know if security software black-listed my website?

Is there a way to find out all, or at least most, of the antiviruses that blacklisted my website? Some online scanner or something?

    A related issue is whether your email is blacklisted. There are plenty of web sites that will check, this one http://whatismyipaddress.com/blacklist-check.

    Some blacklists are set up to monitor a specific category of problem which on it's own is insufficient reason to block that mail sender (but is intended to be used in conjunction with other tests). The example above will tell you how important an individual blacklisting is.

    Note also that you will need to find the numeric IP address of the mailserver that handles your email, the example above inserts the IP address your PC is using but that's misleading, very few of us run our own mailserver on our own PC, it would be a fairly stupid thing to do unless there's some special and unusual requirement.

      Another awesome link. Right on the money. I was looking for this. I didn't realize VirusTotal did sites as well as software and files.

      By the way, I would add there are a couple not on the Virus Total list that are worth checking:

      http://www.mywot.com/
      http://www.siteadvisor.com/ - McAfee - might be the original website scanner.

    Phishtank is the closest that I can think of here. Each antivirus company maintains their own database. So for public database, it is the only I know to access for checking site.

    I just thought of this, go on someone elses computer or whatever and try to access your website, if you can't find it then it must have been blocked.
