Website security matters for SEO and without it you have no online business

Why would anyone want to hack your website?

Some people make money from poor quality websites offering something base or fetish. To professionals in this business their websites addresses a need and, in all fairness, they do however it is such a base need that it panders to the unhindered cravings of humanity and Google won't rank their website quality. The resulting websites don't look as professional as any Ann Summers website but they'll niche onto the much more desperate and deeper human desires. In this respect their websites are professional websites but you'd not wish to promote them, would you!

Over time all websites gain Google trust and your website may have its own followers like loyal customers, suppliers or online community followers. The most useful asset you have is largely hidden and intangible; it is Googles website trust and ranking in your website. This is truly what hackers are after when they've finished with your clients credit card details. Your website will provide simple pickings if your website security is poor.

Never underestimate the value of Google's trust simply because you can not even pay-per-click or push traffic to your website if it has been hacked and is found to be virus laden low quality. Your web business model is completely sunk when somebody has breached your website security.

Professional security hackers are just as intelligent as you or I - perhaps more so. They're skilled, old or young and they've their own organised sub-culture of shared hacker 'hints and tips.' Hackers will normally be better resourced with code cracking tools and methods. The main reason why your website hasn't been attacked, or hacked, is that it may possibly not present enough of the rich pickings for the hackers to choose your website today but perhaps tomorrow?

Next time you visit a website that has been hacked you can get a virus saying you have 2023 viruses on your computer, followed by 2898, 3012 then 5032 and climbing. You pay money for the suggested anti-virus cure but somehow your credit card doesn't work so you enter the next credit card, and also the next and the next. Surprisingly, all your credit cards are utilised in Canada and Nigeria where chip and pin aren't in use. Scams have 1001 techniques of appearing so it's better to increase your website security before you find your website adding to the problem.
