Full Review classiccars
We see that the owner of the website is using a service to hide his/her identity. This may be because the owner does not want to get spammed. However, it also makes it difficult to identify the real owner of the website. As a result, websites hiding their identity get a slightly lower score.
This website is deemed to be popular by Alexa with a ranking of . Having a high ranking in Alexa is a good sign. Not only does the website have a lot of visitors. Also several other websites link to this site, meaning that it is considered relevant by others.
We discovered that many websites are linking to this website. This is a good sign. A website can gain “authority” in search engines if many other websites who have “authority” link to it. Just having many links from unknown websites with few visitors is not enough for search engines to give a higher position. Quality does count.
The name of the website has been claimed for more than a year in advance. This is a good sign. Most website owners only register their domain name for one year and renew every year. Companies who register their domain name for a longer-term (up to 10 years) mean to continue their business for a long time. Most scammers sell the name of their websites after a few months once their scam has become common knowledge.
This website has been set-up several years ago. We consider this a positive sign. The longer a website exists, the more it can be expected that it is legit. However, the age of the website is unfortunately no guarantee. In some cases, scammers have been found to buy existing domain names and start their malicious practice here. So checking a website remains a necessity.
A valid SSL certificate was found. Professional companies use an SSL certificate to encrypt communication between your computer and their website. However, there are different levels of certification and scammers also install a free SSL certificate. If you have to enter your data, never do this without checking if an SSL certificate protects your information (source: Xolphin).
The website is using technology to shorten links. While common on fora and social media sites, it is not common on the home page of a website. Link shortening can also be misused to hide the real destination of the link. It may direct to malware or a phishing site.
