Why is My Website Marked as Dangerous or Suspicious?

If you are reading this article chances are you probably have run into an error on your buying site or selling site.

sometimes this can be a simple fix such as setting up the security for your site which is free thanks to the Investment Dominator.

What we have noticed is that there are some users who experience what seems like a “bad domain”. What this exactly means is when you first buy your domain there is a rare chance where there is a trail of activity from acquiring this domain that was flagged before by google. Which prevents our domain security or SSL from attaching to your site.

This may seem like all hope is lost but there are some options that are presented from the situation:

  • If you own a site marked as dangerous or suspicious: Follow these instructions

If you are wondering the reason for customizing and creating our own domain since we are already provided a default one. You want to remain different from your peers and the best way to do this is by adding a personal flair to your website link. Especially when sending this out to your potential prospects!

Step 1: Register Your Domain and Point It To The Investment Dominator Server

Please note we recommend having separate buying and selling domains. This is simply because they both have two different purposes and in order to keep the flow of traffic to your site regulated for your potential prospects there should respectively be two channels one for selling and one for buying.

Step 2: Mapping Your Domain To your Investment Dominator App

Once the setup has been made with your domain and directed to our server the next step in the process will be to connect it to Investment Dominator.

Go into the customize tab on the Investment Dominator and go into your Website Settings – Buying from this section you will be prompted with an option to change your domain. Go ahead and click on this so we can register your new domain.

Go ahead and enter your new domain information for your buying site and if you made sure to connect your C-Name record with Investment Dominator click the check box below. From there hit the next button to confirm your domain name.

Step 3: Secure Your New Domains

Now after you confirm you will be prompted with a screen telling you your domain was changed and instead of just clicking okay we want to hit the Click Here To Secure Your Domain button. A lot of people miss this step so if you happened to click away, go into Customize -> Website Settings – then under the buying site domain there should be a button like so in the picture above which says Secure Your Domain.

Then you will be presented with a screen that looks like this enabling you to generate your SSL provided by Investment Dominator which will secure your website so you can have even better search optimization for your Buying or Selling site.

Then there you have it you have officially set up your Domains and have redirected them onto the Investment Dominator. Not to mention your sites are also now secured allowing for search engines to quickly prioritize your site rather than if it was not secured.

How To Customize Buying and Selling Site Text Display

On both the Buying and Selling Sites provided in the Investment Dominator system, there is existing default text serving as an introduction to that specific website. You can modify and design your own version of this textual information to convey any messages you deem appropriate.

To customize either of the initial Buying or Selling Site text displayed, this is accomplished by entry of data into the [Buying Site Homepage Text] field.

Changing your Buying Site text display is easy to do, simply go to ‘Customize> Website Settings – Buying> Access Buying Site Homepage Text:‘ field.

Note: Changing your Selling Site text requires you go to ‘Customize> Website Settings – Selling> Access Selling Site Homepage Text:‘ field

Scroll down to [Buying Site Homepage Text] field and enter any text you want to appear when Buying Site Homepage initially displays.

Note: Any text or images found in the [Buying Site Homepage Text] field will automatically prevent Investment Dominator from the displaying the default built-in site text.

Once text has been entered into the [Buying Site Homepage Text] field, Scroll down to the end of the page and click the blue ‘Update Site‘ button to save the changes.

To view the changes click ‘Websites> Buying Site‘:

Your Buying or Selling Site with your new changes will be displayed on a browser tab.

How To Add Public/Private Links On Listings

On land records and listings generated in the Investment Dominator you may have the need to provide additional information for yourself; as well as, potential buyers of property. We use both Public and Private links to accomplish this task as they can provide additional pertinent information for anyone accessing land records or customers perusing your Selling Site to purchase vacant land. Links also serve to keep listings clean and uncluttered with the information being provided.

Execute the following to add both Public/Privates links to any land records:

Step 1) To Create A Public/Private Link “Edit” A Land Record

Note: To create a Private Link a land record can be in any status, while in most instances to create a Public link the land record is in “Complete/Ready to Sell” status. Public links will appear on active listings.

Step 2) Access the [Links] section to add the new link

Once inside the land record scroll down to the [Links] section and press the “Add Link” button.

Step 3) Add either a Public/Private link with associated parameters

Note: Public links will display on any property listings below the property descriptions, while Private links are for personal use and will NOT display.

Enter the Title, Description, URL and Post Vars fields as needed for the new link.

Public Link Example: The following is a simple Public [Google Search] link and will produce an internet google search for entities in the state of “Arizona”.

Private Link Example: The following is a Private [County GIS Site Map] link and will access a GIS County Map for a specific parcel. This link provides information regarding the size, shape and location of the specific parcel as needed.

Step 4) Add Either Public or Private Link For Access

Once all appropriate link information has been added for either a Public or Private link press the blue Add button to generate the link.

Notice both types of links will be added and are active links which can be accessed from within the land record.

How To Manipulate The Order of Property Listings On Your Selling Site

On your current Investment Dominator Selling Site, you may not be satisfied with the default order of listings displayed and may have a need to feature other listings appearing further down the list.

To change the order of how listings appear on your Selling site follow the steps below.

Step 1) Under ‘Customize> Website Settings – Selling’

Navigate to the ‘Customize>Website Settings – Selling‘ section:

Step 2) Scroll Down To The ‘Property Listings’ Section

Scroll down to the ‘Property Listings‘ section:

Step 3) Arrange The Listing Order

Select the specific listings you want to move either up or down in order based on the listings display.

Under the ‘Display Order‘ column select either the ‘Move Up‘ or ‘Move Down‘ options for the specific listing you want to either move up or move down, (one position at a time).

NOTE: As soon as you select either the ‘Move Up‘ arrow or ‘Move Down‘ arrow associated with a specific listing, the system immediately causes that listing to be re-positioned in the order display.

Step 4) Save the changes

NOTE: Simply pressing the ‘Move Up‘ arrow or ‘Move Down‘ arrow and seeing the listing change position in the Admin Console will NOT be sufficient to update the listing order on your Selling site. You must first save the changes.

Create Your Own Custom Optin Page/ Selling Site Theme

In addition to the two built-in Selling Site themes (Legacy and 2.0) that come with the Investment Dominator system, you can design and develop your own custom themes and even share those themes with other users.

To create a custom theme you need to know a little about HTML and CSS. If you are not familiar with what that is, you can hire a front-end HTML and CSS developer on sites like Fiverr.com or Upwork.com that can take a visual design that you have in mind and code it using those web languages.

Ok, Let’s Get Started

  1. Download this Sample Selling Site Theme template which contains all of the built-in merge fields to call in things like the Optin Form that we use in our default themes.

    You can use these merge fields to pull in information or functions used in the Investment Dominator.

Sample Selling Site Themes:

2. Use basic HTML and CSS to design your layout, then reference the merge fields as needed within your page structure.

Your theme should include the following files (required):

  • header.html
  • img/
  • src/
  • footer.html
  • index.html
  • listings.html
  • preview.jpg
  • optin-page

Common files and directories include (optional):

  • contact-us.html
  • thank-you.html
  • contact-thank-you.html
  • deals.html
  • styles.css
  • script.js

It is best practice to include all website elements and resources within your theme folder so that it is a self-contained directory with no external references.

Paths should be relative to the theme path which can be referenced via the below merge field:

[selling-theme-path]

3. Compress your theme files into a .zip folder then upload that folder under ‘Customize> Website Settings – Selling> Optin Page‘ and click the ‘UPLOAD CUSTOM THEME‘ option.

NOTE: The filename of the .zip file you upload will be the name of the theme when it is uploaded and a screenshot of the theme is automatically generated based on your index.html file.

When the custom theme uploads it will appear below the built-in theme options like this:

4. Click the custom theme to highlight and select it, then click the blue ‘Update Site‘ button at the bottom of the page to save the change.

How To Mark A Listing As “PENDING” or “SOLD” On The Selling Site?

After you find a buyer for your property or sell your property you may still want to keep the property listing up on your Selling Site to serve as social proof.

There are two settings you need to have for the listing to display on your site as Pending or Sold.

  • The ‘Status‘ of the record must be in the ‘Found Buyer – Open Escrow‘ status.
  • The ‘Listing Status‘ option must be set to ‘Public‘.

This will display the “PENDING” text over the thumbnail of the listing.

If you then change the ‘Status‘ to ‘SOLD‘ then the text “SOLD” will appear over the listing thumbnail.

How To Add The Map To Your Custom Page

To add this interactive map to a custom Selling Site page first create a public Custom Page then under the ‘Insert Merge Field‘ dropdown menu select the ‘Property Listing Map‘ option which will insert the ‘[property-listing-map]‘ merge tag into your ‘Page Content‘ and add the interactive property map to your custom page.

How To Customize The Selling Site Banner

You can change both the Selling Site Banner as well as the Text that is layered on top of the banner.

Here’s how…

  • Go to ‘Customize> Website Settings – Selling
  • Under the ‘Selling Site Banner Text‘ field enter in the text that you would like to layer on top of the banner image.
  • Under the ‘Upload Selling Site Banner‘ section you can click the ‘Choose File‘ option to upload a custom image from your computer to use as the banner image.
  • Once you have uploaded the new image, use the ‘Crop Your Photo‘ tool to click and drag an area around your image then click the blue ‘Confirm‘ button at the bottom of the screen to crop it to the correct size.
  • Don’t forget to click the blue ‘Update Site‘ button to save your changes.
