Why is security important for SEO?

Topic: SEO Adelaide - Security Considerations

It is regularly reported that search engines penalise websites that have suffered security breaches.

Providers of SEO in Adelaide are no exception. Whether you know it or not, your website will be subject to regular online threats. The more valuable your data, the more effort is expended to get past your defences.

Once breached, you face lengthy SEO penalties. Why? Because search engines do not want to direct people to websites where they may be at risk.

SEO is also about building your brand. In Australia, the latest Optus breach is a timely reminder of the brand damage you can suffer is security is penetrated.
