I use another site called scam adviser myself, but im not even sure if that does a good job.

Best Answer:

Irish Mystic: Web Of Trust ( WOT ) is good for advising on the trustworthiness of websites by giving you a visual colour coded indication, and also has a facility where you can enter a sites name to get a lot more information about it;

You need to download it for each of your browsers.
I`ve been using it for years and it has never failed me, if it thinks the site is dangerous then it will tell you that before it allows connection.

You can't anymore websites can be hacked just like computer. You could visit your favorite website every single day and nothing happens and tomorrow it gets attacked and you go and visit it and you get a virus. The very famous chef Jamie Oliver's website was infected with malware 4 almost half a year and nobody knew to prove my point

Mostly depending on it's content, for example if there're many illegal downloads on that page, weird popups and ads, then you might want to consider not visiting that website again.

Go to microsoft.com and download Microsoft Security Essentials and it will tell you if the website is safe and you'll be given the option to allow the website to appear or not appear.
Duncan:
Scam Adviser does a fairly good job at checking a sites reputation, how long it has been established, and verifying the details of the site's operators.

Type in the URL at "Virustotal" or "URLVoid" and they will check it out in just a few seconds.
