Top 20 Google tips #17 - Google doesn't like it if you get hacked!

*** TRANSCRIPT *** Hi I'm Clive Loseby from Access by Design. I'm here today to talk about 20 things that you need to know about your website and Google in 2017 (and 2018!)

No 17. Google doesn't like it if you get hacked. Hmmm, nobody likes it if you get hacked, least of all you. However it's not about getting hacked, because it happens to corporations, to big businesses, you know - everybody, governments whatever. It's not about being hacked, it's about what you do about it.

Now, everybody can have a free Google account. Get yourself a Google account, get yourself a free Webmaster Tools account and get your website registered on that. If your website gets hacked, Google will then let you know about it and it will let you know where it's been hacked, so you get that information and you get it straight away.

Like I said, getting hacked isn't the issue, it's about how quickly you resolve that. Free Gmail account, free Webmasters Tools account. If it's your website, it is in your interest to be aware if there are any issues with it!

If you would like to have a free review of your website, please do get in touch.

Thank you
