Rather you have a very high traffic website, or one that sees very little traffic. You can guarantee that both websites are under attack right now. If you believe that websites are attacked because people target them and you must provoke somebody into attacking you, I am sorry to report that this is not correct.
Here is a video taken at 4:30 AM EST on a website that receives very little traffic The website is hosted on a VPS with Sucuri’s WAF protecting it.
To be truly transparent I have added affiliate links however I recommend these companies regardless so please feel free to go directly to them circumventing my links if you like.
You can see people are trying to get in to website and whether they want to deface it, or more likely inject malware which will be used to attack another target the idea of having a server that is hacked is a nightmare for anybody. One of the main reasons this is so awful is if you do not have backups your site is most likely gone for good unless you contact a company like Sucuri to have it cleaned up.
FireHost is another hosting company I use they are incredibly secure this is my last 12 months.
This website is hosted on Pagely’s VPS it has a WAF and works superbly.
What is the best way to determine your website’s strength versus another site rather be a competitor or not? With so many tools on the web most people think because Google is the one selecting where your site and up in the SERPS that they must be the best place to actually figure out where your site places amongst the millions of other sites on the web. Some people unfortunately use it as a way to gauge a SEO campaign because Toolbar pagerank is different from Google’s internal PageRank the fact is when you check any tool that gives you a pagerank number you are not getting the same number that Google is using because toolbar or the page rank you and I can see using any tool is not the same as what Google’s Internal pagerank. (I know how dare they) So looking at the green bar simply does not update quickly nor does it have a real place in deciding whether or not your site is awesome in the eyes of Google or not so good.
VS vs other tools like Ahrefs and Majestic SEO have their own ways of measuring website “Authority/success/ I made/my site is better than yours” really let’s just stick with authority.
One huge problem with using pagerank to determine whether your site is any good is that pagerank is an algorithm not a metric so no it is not very good for determining your website’s ability to rank
Most people will tell you Google PageRank. I do not agree with that and hopefully by the end of this you will not agree with using pagerank to judge a website or a unique web page itself.
First I must be the guy that tells you what you probably already know PageRank is named after Larry Page one of the founders of Google. Sorry everyone had to get that the way. If we take a look at the amount of search traffic for “Google PageRank” let’s look at Google’s forecast and history of people searching for Google Page Rank
So PageRank is calculated using a log scale Toolbar PageRank (log base 10) Real PageRank 0 0 – 10 1 10 – 100 2 100 – 1,000 3 1,000 – 10,000 4 10,000 – 100,000 5 and so on…
Why is it that companies can rationalize paying USD200 a month for a cell phone for each employee however when it comes to hosting the website that represents their entire business to the biggest audience there is the web.
They choose not to pay over five dollars.
