Why Would Someone Want To Hack Your Website?
To Spam On Your Behalf
Your customers trust your good name, and hackers are counting on that. A favorite tactic is to send out fraudulent offers using your domain with your seal of approval. Once the bubble bursts, your reputation is in tatters and you’re vulnerable to liability issues.
To Steal Your Resources
Hackers like to do projects at high speeds, and they can use your property as a means. Incomplete site security lets others exploit your weaknesses and enter your website’s server, which is twice as powerful as any single computer, to use it as they please.
To Implement Negative SEO
Once a hacker has access to your website, they are able to send out thousands of messages to low quality, spam driven sites, backlinking to your website. Google penalizes websites connected to spam and you will see your search traffic fall as a result.
To Steal You & Your Visitors Information
It’s child’s play to place trackers on a hacked website. Once in place, they report your customers’ browsing habits, passwords, even personal financial information including credit card numbers.

Why Is Website Security Important?Having a healthy website should be a top priority for any business owner who wants success both in-store and online. From our experience helping businesses online, maintenance and security tremendously help to safeguard your brand, SEO, and customers.
Maintain A Positive Brand ImageYour website is an extension of you and your business. Consider the negative experience in-store visitors will have if:
- Your phone/computer/credit card systems are down.
- Your store has been robbed or vandalized
- An entire section of your store is inaccessible
- Your contact forms/check-out systems are not working.
- Your website has been hacked and injected with malware.
- Visitors are unable to view certain products or areas of your website because of broken links.
- Google alerts potential visitors that you are a security risk before your website even has a chance to load!
Maintain Your SEOSearch engines like Google and Bing have complicated algorithms and strict guidelines when it comes to ranking websites. If your website has issues, especially security-related issues, you risk losing rankings or even being removed from the search results altogether. On the other hand, if your website is updated, maintained, and secured search engines will be more likely to rank you better in search results.
