Cleaning a compromised website should be fast and preventing one is possible.
Cleaning up your site after a hack is devastating. All the work you put into the site’s organic ranking is likely gone. The longer it is infected, the worse the traffic loss is. After working in the SEO industry we have come across many clients who have had their site compromised who wanted to fix their rankings. Over the years we have learned how to fix your site quickly and we can help you regain your ranking.
According to Sucuri, 38% of the sites they work on are related to search engine poisoning which is the fastest growing attack. Also over 60% of sites that are infected are compromised with a backdoor in the system.
This backdoor is why you can “fix” a problem but it comes back hours, weeks, months later. Without fixing the backdoor you are leaving your site unsecured.
There are many ways hackers gain a foothold in your site. Outdated plugins, themes, WordPress, brute force attacks, weak passwords, or your host provider’s shared server vulnerabilities.
A compromised website is no joking matter and you should have someone who can fix the problem fast and mitigate your company’s losses. As well as help you regain your search ranking.
