When I visit the following site and click on any of the options/links AVG
reports a Web Shield Alert caused by Exploit Blackhat SEO (type 1703).
Does anyone else get this response? I have searched on Google and not really
come up with a clear answer.

I doubt if it actively tests sites. It's probably just scanning the
page when accessed for suspicious content; in this case, a lot of
hrefs after the closing html tag.

I am complaining to AVG about this, I just got it on my very own website also, and there is nothing wrong with it.. looks to me as if AVG are not as good at this
as they think they are. Ie throwing the baby out with the bath water.

AVG isn't that great of an A/V in general

A missing </html> tag at in a document will also trigger this warning if there are enough links down near the bottom of the page. I just encountered this on the web site for a store. Did your own web site pass muster with http://validator.w3.org/?

Another example: if you go to https://chessbase.com/ you will find they are using an expired HTTPS security certificate, and certain browsers like Google Chrome will give you a nasty warning...but in this case it's a false positive.
