One of our domains ( GChat.com ) got hit with this forumla which once were blacklisted by this option, more than 10 years ago, even though a long time is past, the domain is still black listed and not even any contents from subdomains can be listed while Safe Search option is turned on.

After a bit of research, we have noticed that search engines such as Yahoo and Goole may be using 3rd party data to evaluate websites to identify which category they are.
