Google’s New Platform To Help Fix Hacked Website’s: Seems all we hear about anymore, is Google. Truth is that as far as search engines go, Google is updating more often, providing more help to webmasters, teaching businesses how to derive organic search traffic, etc. Other search engines, those such as Yandex, Bing and Yahoo! don’t put forth enough initiative or effort, to move forward and compete with Google.
I’ve been hacked before, have you? Getting your website hacked isn’t any fun at all, truth is, it’s completely humiliating and time consuming at that. Often times, we get hacked, at the least unexpected times, and fixing the hack is a big burden of a job. Normally we have to rush to outsource someone to fix our website, not knowing if we can trust the person who’s fixing it. Often times, many of you can’t even budget for that, due to the time it happened.
Whether you learned about your website getting hacked through Google or you simply found it yourself — often times we use Google, in one way or the other, even if it be getting the Maleware warning removed. Have you done that before?

Hackers are more experienced these days, than what they was 2 years ago, and each year, they become even further advanced. They hack websites, for many different reasons. If you have been hacked, make sure you try to review your web pages and posts, as most hackers are now inserting “Links” into the website’s they’re hacking. I’m really not sure that there’s a tool to assist you with this process (checking for links), although I suppose you could use Screaming Frog SEO Spider. After you run the software, look for links that you do not recognize.
I hope that this post will help some of you, as it did me. Please share this post, and help us at RxSEO to tell others about our blog!
