Hacking up 180% in 2015

Google announced Monday that they saw a “huge number of websites being hacked – a 180% increase compared to the previous year”.

They also saw an increase in sites with lower quality content, also called “thin-content”.

To address these issues Google used search updates to remove a number of hacked spam sites in search results.

 

They also sent 4.3 millions messages to webmasters to help them identify issues and to notify them of manual actions which Google undertook.

What Should a Site Owner Do?

Register your site with Google Search Console (formerly Google Webmaster Tools). Verify the site by one of the means provided. This way you will be able to see any issues which Google may find on your site. Upload an SML site map to make it easier for Google to index your site.

But don’t just take our word...

I cannot express how pleased I am with this company, their services and quality of work. They finished my project in record time and were in direct communication with me the entire time. I've already emailed them asking to send me an entire list of their services! Will definitely use them again when I can. Fantastic experience. Wish every company was like this! 5 STARS!
