Is your online security in trouble?
SEO in Bundaberg is something where many business wind up worrying about keywords and social networks, but take shortcuts that leave themselves at risk. And so I wish to show you a number of tips and tricks I have actually picked up to help you as a company in Bundaberg in order to make sure you are not jeopardizing your security. The majority of these tips are centred on WordPress given that it is the most commonly used program, and there are many really straightforward ways that help make it much safer.
There is a remarkably large number of people that come to us because their WordPress site has been hacked. It can range from some horrible things such as having data and information stolen, to even getting some malicious sites set up ads that you don’t want.
So my first item of advice refers to passwords. Too many people do not have a strong enough password because they either use the same one for every single thing, or it is something really standard. Do not use your date of birth, your dogs name, or your email name. you want letters, numbers and symbols. It may be annoying to remember but there are clever ways to think about this. One that I have seen used really well is to pick something easy to recall, like a date, but spell it out. For example, if your Bundaberg business was launched up on the 23rd of January, perhaps think about a password that is twenty3JAN– it is still uncomplicated to remember, but far more challenging to guess. Same rules concern your username– please do not have it set as ‘admin’.
Next, I want you to make sure you consider security plug-ins. These are really crucial and really easy to get access to in WordPress. I would advise that you search for these ones– I have used one myself for ages, and I have had patrons that love the other two.
- Bulletproof security.
- Exploit Scanner.
My last piece of security advice for you is to avoid free themes and invest in something with much better security. Most business that have safety and security issues have just gone with a pretty, free theme that is easy but has far too many areas that can be exploited. Don’t get me wrong, many themes are secure enough to use, but it isn’t always the case, so I tell people to just simply invest $20 and get a nice one which is known for security. I would suggest looking at www.envato.com they have some brilliant themes, and even have some premium themes completely free as part of their monthly specials.
That’s all I have to say, just 3 quick, easy pieces of advice that you can execute this very day if you want to save yourself pain and suffering down the track. Update your password, get a security plug-in, and get a good theme. Your SEO campaign is not going to do you any good if your website is open to security threats and no one relies on you anymore.
