[*]I have now made website secure.

As far as your comment, do I need to use Google webmaster tools, or something else? How can I satisfy WOT.

Domain Registrar: NAmecheap
DNS: Cloudflare.

Hello. When you say you made your site secure did you do so only through Cloudflare (which decrypts everything it processes) or did you enable HTTPS at your host? Cloudflare's "Flexible SSL" is a misleading product as it does not use a secure connection when their servers communicate with your server.

Hello Site-Rater

I have run through cloudflare using Enable HTTPS and encryption set to FULL.

I have purchased a SSL certificate through Weebly through their starter plan.

The site now says it is secure.

I have again updated privacy policy.

I am unsure what else is required.

The site was formerly known as nbcauthor.com, and was assessed as a trustworthy site by WOT. But I changed it to rebrand.

IF there is anything I need to do to make the site more trustworthy, please let me know.

Hello and welcome to WOT.

Your site appears to be safe and has no issues that I can identify. You do have a privacy policy as well.
The SSL rating seems acceptable in terms of security (B average).

Rated.

P.S. I am curious just how this site is listed as having a 65/100 rating.
That is a really low rating for a new site to have, especially one that is not promoting dubious information or schemes!

Wot:
We are developing the technology to estimate link trustworthiness on new sites before any users ratings exist - this is our solution to save users from new phishing/malware sites as they go live. Utilizing our patented, cutting-edge technology, we are able to achieve our mission of protecting users while they browse on any site, in real-time.
Also, not this owner's fault, but all the reviews are from site owners who are sharing positive reviews in breach of guidelines. The system will not trust groups of new users with similar activity.

So, one simply has to wait for other users to evaluate site before getting the green circle?

How many?

And thank you to all who rated my site so far.
