Keyword-based policy enforcement

Keywords are associated with categories, and then used to offer protection against URLs that have not explicitly been added to the Master Database or defined as a custom URL. Three steps are necessary to enable keyword blocking:
1.
2.
3.
When keywords have been defined and keyword blocking is enabled for a specific category, web protection software tries to match the keyword against each requested URL as follows:
*
For example, if you associated the keyword "nba" with the permitted Sports category, the following URLs are blocked:
*
*
modernbakery.com
*
fashionbar.com
*
For example, if you associated the keyword "fútbol" with the permitted Sports category:
*
"www.fútbol.com" is permitted (the domain portion of the URL is not matched)
*
"es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fútbol" is blocked (the path portion of the URL is matched)
When a site is blocked by keyword, the site is recategorized according to the keyword match. Reports show the keyword category, rather than the Master Database category, for the site.
Be cautious when defining keywords to avoid unintended overblocking.
 
Important 
When a request is blocked based on a keyword, this is indicated on the block page that the user receives.
