We had a client who insisted only on us doing SEO and to leave their dilapidated security alone, because they’re small so no one would want to hack them. That misnomer lost them a lot of money, and as they’ve learned adding in cyber security after the hack isn’t going to recover your money. Also, if you refuse to replace your vulnerable software, you’ll be hacked again and again.
So how does this link to search engine Optimization? It’s pretty simple. When you are hacked, Google remembers and penalizes you for it till you’ve gone 90 days hack free. Not being hacked is vital to survival online, since around 50 percent of small businesses go out of business due to hacks, because they didn’t plan for it.
Building cyber security in with your SEO is the best option possible, but we also do just SEO as some people like to live life on the dangerous side, which is fun if you aren’t putting your entire livelihood on the line.
