Can you say: “My website is Search Engine Optimized”
Now let’s get real carried away and say:
My Website is Search Engine Optimized!Yell this out loud 3 times
Why am I making a big deal about this? Because if your site is not PROPERLY Search engine optimized you won’t get much traffic which translates in a very poor Click thru rate thus a very poor chance of a good income from your site.
The websites we build are properly search engine optimized for easy spider crawling. The websites make sense to the spiders and we give them the bread crumb food they are so desperately craving. Didn’t your science teacher tell you to feed the spiders? 🙂 Well, probably not – but you DO want to feed the search engine spiders. Think of your website as a living organism and you want your website to have spiders crawling all over it and eating it up. But, you need to give it spider food which they thrive on and not some type of spider eradicator.
Our internet marketing training techniques will give you a constant ongoing education about advanced website seo tactics that will help propel your site into the mainstream giving your website a traffic advantage.
Website Hosting Plans come in all shapes and sizes. (or colors and flavors). Bottom line: you don’t always get what you pay for. Nor, do you always understand what you are really getting. The question to ask is are you only getting hosting or is your hosting company doing something extra for your site along the lines of search engine optimization.
If you are told that the reason your hosting fee is so high is because they are optimizing your site and maintaining your keyword than you need to ask what that really means. What are the doing to optimize your site and your main keyword. Show me the results! Are you (hosting company) engaged in an inbound link campaign? Is it a 2 way (reciprocal link exchange) campaign or a one way link campaign? How many inbound links does my site have now? What is the anchor text in the inbound link? How about the PR of the sites linking to my site and are the sites on topic or off topic? Are you focusing on one major broad keyword or several niche keywords making sure to sprinkle in some long tail keywords in the anchor text?
Are you adding content to my site? Is it original content? Have you submitted any articles to article directories and have they been picked up and being placed on other websites? Have you created any blogroll link exchanges between my sites and others? (on topic or off topic)?
i.e.: What are you doing for me when you say you are maintaining a keyword to justify charging me between $50 – $500 a month? Please explain and show me the results. Are you simply hosting my site or are you hosting it and optimizing my site for search engine spiders to come by and give it some good pr and search engine rankings?
The point is to understand if you are paying for hosting only, hosting + great customer service, hosting + customer service + SEO on your site?
Local Web Hosting is here to meet the needs of the savvy Internet marketer and the beginner alike with your website hosting needs and development of your WordPress blog.
The lessons taught here cover the gamut of SEO topics and the “How To’s…” of proper website structure and development. Including effective Content Creation that your readers will love and be favorable to the search engines.
After you master the techniques of proper website development and content creation it will be quite natural to begin to earn revenue from affiliate marketing and other online income opportunities.
But, after you build your beautiful WordPress blog and fill it with quality content that you have written after much long tail keyword research on your niche – how would you like it to wake up and find out your website has been hacked?
Don’t decide before it’s too late that you need a Secure Website Hosting Platform
How will you know your website has been hacked? There are several symptoms to look for. Some of the obvious ones are like these:
There is a warning page on your home page that your site has been flagged for distributing malware.
Google and other search engines have blacklisted your website.
Your site has been disabled by your webhost.
Readers complaining that their desktop AV’s are flagging your site
In the dashboard you might notice unauthorized behavior like creation of new users.
Your hosting company or somebody else might contact you to inform you that your website is being used to attack other sites.
When you go to your website it will visibly appear hacked.
You don’t know what to do. Where to start and are panicking as all your work seemingly just went up in smoke.
First – Stay Calm & Create an Incident Response Document
Write down in an organized manner things such as:
What time did you first become aware of the website hack? What timezone?
What exactly makes you think your website has been hacked?
Have you recently added a new plugin, theme, widget? What other recent changes have you made to your website?
Make note of who the current hosting company is and any details about the hosting plan and set up.
Now you want to do a site scan. Here are a few scans you can run. You can scan with external remote scanners or application scanners. Here is a list of both types of scanners.
Application Based Scanners:
Quettera, WordFence, Sucuri and GOTMLS (These are plugins)
External Remote Scanners you can use are:
Cloaked Link Checker, Sitecheck, Aw-Snap and VirusTotal
Check in the WordPress Plugin section and you can find even more but these ones are fairly popular with a good reputation.
Now it’s time to Scan your Local Environment
Many times an attack can begin right from your computer, desktop, laptop etc… across various operating systems.
The trojan installs on your device and sniffs out your log in information for FTP and Website logins. Than, the attack can begin that way.
Make sure to run your AV software and even try using a new one as the virus can hide from them.
Time to Lock Down your Website
Check with your hosting provider if the attack originated from a shared hosting server that your website is hosted on.
Make sure your website has not been blacklisted by Google. It is recommended to register you website with Google Webmaster, Bing Webmaster, Norton and Yandex Webmaster.
Check all of your access points such as wp-admin, ftp, sftp and cpanel. Use a password generator to produce a nice long and unique password. It’s also helpful to use Two Factor Authentication.
Reset Access by updating the secret keys in the wp-config file and that will force all active users that are logged in to be logged off the site. iThemes Security or Force Strong Passwords can help with this step.
Backup your database and files. Ask your hosting provider if they regularly backup your website files.
Now it’s time to remove the hack – but, how do we find it?
This is very technical and not for the faint of heart. The process of finding the hack and removing it.
So, rather than elaborating on this topic I would recommend researching this topic by typing into your search engine and especially search WordPress.org for these types of topics:
How to clean WordPress website hack, List of Malware Infections, What to do when a website is hacked, How to remove identify and clear a WordPress website hack, How did my WordPress site get hacked or even How to prevent a WordPress hack.
Removing a hack and fixing a WordPress website can get so technical and anything done incorrectly to “fix it” can make things much much worse. Often the best solution is to employ the services of an expert if you aren’t sure and you value your website.
There will be future security precautions to take once your site is uninfected and cleaned up and restored. You may want to type into WordPress Search “how to secure my WordPress site” or “WordPress security plugins” and those might be a good starting point.
However, if you have read this far and feel that all of the hassle involved in your website being attacked and hacked and than finding the hack and removing it and securing your website – is not worth the effort or it’s way over your head. There is a solution for you.
