WOT also estimates the reliability of a site reputation based on the amount of supporting evidence - the higher the confidence level, the more reliable the reputation is.
WOT system is carefully monitored for any kind of unusual activities or unwanted behavior.
The reputation and confidence level of each site is stored into our database. Reputation is calculated in real-time and shown as traffic light icons next to search results, emails, social networks and other popular sites.
