I just Googled Garden to see where our web site came up at. I found it about 4 or5 down on the list and then I clicked on it. So then I scrolled through all the articles and clicked on Adenium repotting and got a security warning normally when I get those I exit out of the site immediately but since I know this site I want ahead and read the article. Thought I'd let @dave know.

I don't know why you're getting this. I've researched it and so far, come up with no good answers.

There is nothing on the NGA pages here that would trigger that warning, so I don't know why you're getting it. My only guess is you have some malware installed on your device there that's causing it, but that's just a wild guess. I'm going to continue to look into it.

If anyone else experiences this, I'd be grateful to hear from them.

I Googled "Gardening". Same thing, found gardening.org about the 5th listing. Clicked on it and it took me to NGA homepage. But no security warning.

I didn't get the security warning until I clicked on the Adenium repoting article.

It could be something on my phone I get those warnings a lot. I use an LG G3 phone

I just tried it again I got the security warning the first time on the Adenium repoting article. So then I tried the rest of the Articles and never got a security warning. After that I closed out all my pages and tried it all over from scratch and I haven't got a security warning yet.

A few days ago I got a security warning on one NGA page but unfortunately I can't remember which one. It wasn't the Adenium one. If it happens again I'll make a more useful report than this one!

I just wanted to say, as an aside, that it's interesting to see the country differences. It sounds like in the US you are getting NGA within the first few Google results on the first page. When I Google "garden" here it automatically sends me to the Canadian site, google.ca, and on that NGA doesn't come up until the seventh page of results!

That was the only article I was clicking on it came up a total of 3 times. When I started clicking on different article's it stoped. I've tried it a dozen times and it hasn't happened any more.
