I asked my friend who works at TIME Inc to look at my website and when he did it was blocked by TIME Inc's filters.
I cannot get corporations to hire me if their browser claims my site is Risky and will not display the centerpiece of my online presence.
Deep breath, please. Exhale slowly. OK. I can see your site just fine, depending on how I approach. More on that later.
Remember exactly what your friend at TIME said to you ... Got it? Well then, did he actually use the word "blocked", and does he know what that means? One sensible answer: "There was a big red STOP sign saying DANGER - KEEP OUT!" Another answer might be: "I got nothing but a blank page - or a page that said '404 blah, blah (and you need to update your browser, etc)'.
If your friend got the STOP sign, that means one person, using one browser (with whatever extensions and configuration), within one internal network, within one company (as elucidated by user NotBuyingIt, above) concluded that your site is risky. But if he didn't get the STOP sign, then "risky" is merely your own stage-fright, a.k.a. assumption.
Personally, I don't just go look at new things on the Internet on a whim. First I check a new site with security vendors like VirusTotal and Sucuri. Then if the site is reported "clean" (your site is
"clean"), I load it in a browser that is heavily armored - it blocks automagical slights-of-hand that happen behind-the-scene in web pages. Lo, and behold: it loaded your site as a blank page - the reason being that it's a WIX site:
This leads me to believe that your friend did not get the STOP sign, but instead assumed that TIME's "filters" (whatever
) had "blocked" your site. We could stop right here, where I recommend that you set up your site in some venue other
than WIX; but you, being a magician, would feel cheated from knowing at least some of the mechanics.
First, WIX isn't bad; it's just very weird. Like some quantum-mechanical beast, WIX coalesces your site, from the ethers of database entries into actual code (franken-code
Your ad copy could use some ... refinement.
