It’s STILL WordPress….right?

Security For BLOGGING? Why?

As mentioned earlier, Blogging can be a VERY lucrative business IF you know your audience and have a brand, product or service that almost sells itself.  And unfortunately there are plenty of hackers out there more than willing to take advantage of that by doing some of the following:

  • Copying the Bloggers page info/design and claiming it as their own to steer the bloggers audience away (a.k.a. Black Hat SEO)

  • Accessing the Bloggers email database and grabbing  or “scraping” visitor information for whatever purpose

  • If money is involved, any transnational information is at risk as well

If that last bullet point caught your attention, it should! According to Alex Grant at, roughly 30,000 websites are hacked DAILY!

“In a perfect world, using a popular content management system like WordPress would end many security woes — but unfortunately, that’s not the case…”

Alex Grant, a Product Manager at ( , points out: “But becoming a blogger shouldn’t mean that you have to be some sort of technical savant. You’re a content producer, not a hacker…”
