When I GOOGLE a site that I NEED, and you label it MODERATE RISK, what can I do to safely go there?

Indicators displayed with query resultsWhen you run an Internet query such as a Google search, SecureAnywhere shields modify the results display with icons that give you safety information about each website returned as a result of the search. The icon appears to the left of each website name in the list of query results. The table below describes the meaning of each icon.

Welcome to the Webroot Community,
When I check the URL in question with BrightCloud I get the following:
I'm guessing that the fact that this site is relatively new is what's causing the "Moderate Risk" determination.
You can request a URL Reputation Change HERE.
Hope this info helps,
Hope this gets sorted out quickly. Good luck in your endeavors. I browsed your website and your offerings look very interesting. The Arts journey sounds like something I would do. Maybe after I retire I will find the time and money to pursue such a journey. :)
Take care and good luck,
Please stay in touch, my email is <email address snipped for reasons of privacy>. We have a super cultural immersion journey to Cuba a Food & Wine Journey to Morocco and a Cultural Immersion Journey to Bhutan all in the works for 2017 :-)
All the best,
Sit tight and he should let us know shortly.
I have been monitoring this thread with interest and I could not see what you were 'doing wrong' so I decided to take the liberty of trying what you had entered myself and I have managed to make the request for you. The only difference I can see was that I entered, as a product, 'Webroot SceureAnywhere' rather than 'Webroot SecureAnywhere Complete'.
It will be interesting to see what JP says about this as I cannot see why that should make a difference.
I hope that you do not mind me satisfying my curiosity in this may...I was only trying to be helpful.
Sorry BD - this clearly is beyond me :S I keep getting an error message when I submit the form. This is what i am putting on the form - I am sure I am missing somethign glarringly obvious 🙂 Cheers!
Thank you for bringing this to our attention.
Our Web Analysis team has re-analyzed the website http://www.nandajourneys.com/ and found no security risks, so the reputation has been raised to Trustworthy.
Please allow 24-48 hours at the very latest to see this change reflected on your side.
Our proprietary system uses a machine learning algorithm to determine the reputation of a website, to which the experience of a Web and Threat Analysis team is added when further research on a website is requested. Multiple factors impact the algorithm, which include, among others, the popularity of a website worldwide, its age, any threats found on the IP address hosting the website and on other URLs hosted on the same IP. All these factors combined together assign a reputation to a website, which our software then advises on - but does not block - if the reputation was calculated to be under the preset security threshold. Our webpage http://www.brightcloud.com/tools/change-request-url-reputation.php contains a form to submit other websites for further review from our Web Analysts, and our FAQ's explaining how our Reputation system works can be found scrolling down to the bottom of the same page.

Please let me know if you have any other issues 🙂
Cheers all, happy Friday!
You should be good, Nicola. Let us know if you still have trouble after waiting the 24-48 hours for the change. :)
Thanks Baldrick and BD for helping me get, what i thought was a mammoth probelm, resolved so quickly.
Here's to community support!
You are most welcome...but in reality, thinking about it now, it was presumptious of me to do so without first asking you for permission. Glad that it has turned out alright and that you are OK with the action on my part.
Do let us know what BrightCloud come back with and what your score gets bumped up to.
Have a great weekend.
