Want Google to let you know if your site is hacked?

Google your website hacked

In 2016, Google couldn’t notify 61% of website managers that their websites had been hacked. To help with that, Local Marketing Institute recommends that all businesses with a website sign up for the free Google Search Console. This is especially important because the number of websites that were hacked last year went up 32% and Google doesn’t think that number will go down anytime soon.

Speaking of internet security, enabling two factor authentication is another good thing to do. We’ve got a great article about two factor authentication here!
