Tried this out for a few days along side of MyWOT. Not good at all. A Virus Heat download (known rogue software) was rated green by McAfee, but was rated Red by MyWOT.
Same thing happened with SpySheriff (more rogue software). McAfee rated the site green, whereas MyWOT rated it red.
There are so many bots talking about how great the rogue software is on SiteAdvisor, it's impossible to give a website the justified rating it deserves because the bots have taken such an influence over the site and the ratings are skewed.
On MyWOT, there are bots as well talking about how "Alexa.com said most visited website" but there are too many people there to correct the green comment by telling you the truth. The ratings aren't as influenced by bots and MyWOT, overall, is much better than SiteAdvisor in my opinion.
Ratings in MyWOT are updated in real-time and SiteAdvisor takes forever to update, so by the time you've rated the site on SiteAdvisor, the bots have already placed 100 more green comments to keep the rating green.
Welcome to MacAfee MoneyMaker. Once upon a time, we had a vision. To make the Internet safer. But then we had a better vision: $$$£££¥¥¥€€€. So now we accept bribes from bad sites that have been rated red. The money helps us perform a magic trick: Red rated sites magically turn Green.

This is SAD......this site has just as many flaws as WOT. Different flaws, mind you, but just as many. And here come Mc-bashers and WOT fanboys, saying how this site is USELESS? Hold that same measuring stick up to WOT and you will get the same result. And the fools giving these bad ratings would be the cause of said failing grade. ONE TIME: No site advisor is perfect as a site can get a bad rating from simply being exploited from the outside.....this site should be used WITH WOT, not against it....The "faults" of Mcafee AV do NOT translate to site advisor....Save ignorant opinions for a blog, this is a SECURITY TOOL.
