Once Safe Browsing has designated a site as a Repeat Offender, the webmaster will be unable to request additional reviews via the Search Console. Repeat Offender status persists for 30 days, after which the webmaster will be able to request a review.
The feature was introduced to address an issue where they noticed a trend where websites would remove infections long enough to have warnings removed, only to return once removed. They go on to say that this won’t affect websites that have been hacked. In other words, it’s built to affect intentional misuse versus unintentional.
Please note that websites that are hacked will not be classified as Repeat Offenders; only sites that purposefully post harmful content will be subject to the policy.
I can’t help but ask myself – how are they going to differentiate between intentional and unintentional misuse?
