Website Security

Business reputation loss and drop in revenue
There are over 1.5 billion websites on the world wide web today and people rely on search engines when they want to reach information on those sites.

Therefore search engine optimization is more important than ever and it is necessary for every webmaster to understand the true meaning of SEO as well as the potential it can provide for every business.


Google and other search engines warn your customers and restrict them from entering your website. Lately, Google, for example, has stepped up the game even more.

Starting in July 2018, every website without SSL (HTTPS) was marked as insecure and therefore receive an SEO penalty, which makes it harder for your company to reach new customers.
Google has released new details about its spam-fighting efforts, revealing that more than 80% of hacked sites have been detected and removed from search results. (source: Search Engine Journal)

But the reality is that, because of a hacked website, a customer loses trust, and therefore it will lead to company reputation loss, which for e-commerce can often mean an end of the business.

When talking about website security and CMS security the infections are also rising actively. 

Vulnerabilities from plugins and themes remain one of the biggest threats to websites built on WordPress. In fact, just 0.58% of security vulnerabilities originate from WordPress core in 2021. (Source: State Of WordPress Security 2021)

On average, about 50 000 websites get hacked every day and in reality, the majority of these 50,000 sites are legitimate small businesses that are unwittingly distributing malicious code to cybercriminals.

When your site is hacked and added to different blacklists, the potential customer cannot reach the products or services being offered.

Anyways, if a potential customer visits your site and gets warned or infected, there is an extremely low chance that the customer will ever visit your site again.

WordPress clean-up is more expensive than protection

Yes, you will find a lot of blog posts and articles about it, but they will all eventually recommend you the same thing – have a professional do it for you.
