Can Web Security Have a Positive Impact on Your SEO?

Hacker lock image
A recent report by web host GoDaddy has found that almost three-quarters (73.9%) of websites are hacked for SEO reasons, with cybercriminals attempting to incorporate links to other websites and even add new landing pages altogether. This can have a devastating impact on a publisher’s SEO as the leading search engines such as Google and Bing regularly scour the web for sites affected by SEO spam and blacklist them. This drastically reduces a website’s visibility for its relevant search terms.

Furthermore, GoDaddy found that only 50% of webmasters are currently monitoring their website for potential hacking events. This means that one in two websites could be unknowingly attacked – an alarming statistic indeed. Search engines such as Google are driven to make the internet a safer and more enjoyable place. In recent years, Google has been advocating the use of Hyper Text Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS). Webmasters simply have to obtain an SSL certificate for their website to ensure that all data on their website is encrypted in transit, thwarting the potential for data leaks or misuse by criminals.

How to Create a Multilingual WordPress Website: Step by Step

English isn’t the only language out there. Even though it’s the most common language used on the Internet by 25.4 percent of users, there are other popular languages accounting for billions of people.

Online business is international in nature, so failing to translate your website into other languages could be a mistake that limits your business’s reach in a big way. In some areas of the world such as Europe, a multilingual website, or a website with content translated in different languages, is a must for online businesses (that’s because the EU has 24 official languages and three with a higher status of “procedural.”)

In addition to broadening the reach of your online business, a multilingual WordPress website also has other great advantages:

  • It makes your company more customer-centric. Being customer-centric means that a business puts their customers at the center of everything they do; this, of course, includes personalization and localization of content.
  • It can help to outperform the competition. Take a look at your main competitors’ websites. Are they multilingual? If not, you can get the competitive advantage by translating yours.
  • It can help with boosting your business by allowing to tap into international markets (for example, in China, Google’s share of the search engine market is less than 3 percent while the local engine Baidu has 68.44 percent).

So, to maximize the effectiveness of your WordPress website, making it multilingual is something you must do to make it accessible to as many people as possible. In this guide, we’re going to help you make it possible. Continue reading

How to Market WordPress Themes & Plugins?

wordpress sale

In last few years, the market of WordPress products has seen significant growth. Today, WordPress developers, designers and bloggers are making good money using the content management system.

For developers, it has become really possible to earn six or seven figures just by selling WordPress themes and plugins. The best thing about making money from WordPress products is that developers can earn passive income from it. By developing a product once, they continue to earn from it as long as it sells.

However, not all developers have become successful in doing this, even if their work is better than others. The main reason behind their lagging behind is the lack of right marketing strategy.

No matter what, every business and individual have to accept the fact that only quality can’t make you a winner today. Of course, talent, creativity and design are key factors of a theme and plugin, but if you haven’t worked on marketing the products, these products may never sell.
