Opinions on Google safebrowsing

Hi,

 

I was just wondering what peoples opinions are on Google's safebrowsing (www.google.com/safebrowsing/diagnostic?site=) ?

How much faith should someone put into this, along with the other tools and investigation one might have for something suspicious?

 

For instance, I was recently looking into grainger.com and came across this:

Google Safe Browsing diagnostic page for grainger.com

 

Now while grainger seems to be safe, it says the places it has been hosted on aren't too safe.

Do you proceed with guilty by association since its been hosted on unsafe networks or proceed another way?

 

I'm just curious how other people would read something like this and what weight they put into Google's safebrowsing.

 

Thanks
