Our Omaha web design and development team builds beautiful websites we hope will be kept updated and secure. Website security is one of our passions; as it helps keeps our websites and customers in business and successful.

Website security is so important to us that we have an entire team dedicated to website hosting and website security.

So, you say you don’t need website security…

Many businesses are skeptical of needing additional security for their website. Usually they retort with, “we don’t have anything valuable on our website.” And that seems reasonable, right? The website is not collecting sensitive data or payment information. But hackers are not usually looking for this type of “valuable” information. Instead, they are looking for a clean reputation. It’s not about how popular the website is or if it takes credit card information.

A clean website is the perfect place for hackers to host their own malicious content and mount a phishing campaign to collect data from users.wordfence logoMost of the websites our Omaha web development team builds are in WordPress. And WordPress is vulnerable to these hackers. But, WordPress and most WordPress plugins are being updated on a regular basis to resist these hacking attempts and protect websites and its visitors.

WordPress and WordPress plugins do not update automatically, and require manual work to protect against the most recent threats. Additional monitoring through Wordfence and server administration are also advised for best protection.

How can we help protect you?

It’s the recommendation of our Omaha web hosting team to update often. So often that we offer a website security package, through which we will update WordPress and plugins the day an update is released. Taking this small step to secure your website will save you hundreds, maybe even thousands, of dollars and will protect your website visitors from phishing campaigns.

So, while your website may not be collecting valuable information, and may only be a static, your website is not immune to attacks. Be educated and be proactive!

Your Website Content Matters

Many businesses seek a new, updated website to build credibility. And really – isn’t that what we all want for our businesses? Professional branding backed by the expertise and knowledge of trusted staff.

A sleek, professional website can go a long way in building credibility. But it’s the content that matters. Website content matters to Google and it matters to potential customers.icon with hands and keyboard

You’ve likely heard it before…. “Content is King.” And your website is no expectation to this often-understated mantra. So, if you REALLY look at your website content, does it do the following?

  • Clearly and concisely inform users of your product or service?
  • Carefully and thoughtfully utilize keywords for increased organic SEO rankings?
  • Portray the expertise and professionalism of your staff?

And while website design preferences have changed and search engine algorithms have adjusted over the years, good content has remained a constant for a successful website. Website content creates a connection with customers and prospects. Good design partnered with good content builds credibility with customers – letting them know you are the expert, your staff is capable and your products/services are the best around.

Good website content also increases conversions, because valuable information will help consumers to gain a complete understanding of what you do, the services you offer and how you can help them. As a result, your website will generate high quality leads from consumers who are truly interested in utilizing your products or services. And, most importantly, high quality website content that is optimized for the search engines will result in improved rankings (SEO) – bringing these high-quality leads through your virtual door.

Do you want improved performance for your website? Improve your content! Content is king. It matters to Google, and it matters to your customers. So, get writing, or ask us to help!
