Google Toolbar PageRank Finally Dead?

If you’ve been around SEO for any length of time then it probably won’t come as too much of a surprise that it seems Google are not going to update the Google Toolbar PageRank anymore.  John Mueller stated in the Google hangout below that they probably won’t ever update it again (around 20 mins in), so if you do follow (no pun intended) your website’s page rank then this is probably never going to change again.

How To Change WordPress Login URL

How To Change WordPress Login URLWordPress is the most popular CMS (and best in my opinion) around today. However because of this it’s also targeted a lot by Hackers and is easy for their attack bots to find.

One of the many things you can do to make your WordPress website more secure is change your WordPress Login URL to something unique.

Most people don’t do this and therefore the bots know exactly where to find your login page so they can then set about their attack to try and force their way in. If the bots can’t find the login page then they can’t login.

LastPassYour security online has always been of paramount importance.  People’s online accounts get hacked every single day using shady techniques you wouldn’t even of thought of in a million years. One of the biggest issues I see all the time which is at minimum what you should be doing is NOT using the same password for all your online accounts.

This is REALLY dangerous and if you are currently doing this you should hit yourself over the head immediately with a mouldy banana. I say mouldy just so it doesn’t hurt too much!


Is Google PageRank Dead?

google pagerankAs you’ve probably noticed this year the pagrank of your site/pages hasn’t changed at all. Only yesterday Google’s Matt Cutts tweeted that he’d be surprised if it was updated at all before 2014.

The thing is pagerank is still being used and adjusted, Google are just not showing it publicly. This has kind of always been the case really. What you see in the Google tool bar isn’t your ‘true’ page rank and has only ever been updated every 3 or 4 months Your real pagerank will be getting updated a lot more regularly than every 3 months or 4 months.

So what does that mean for you?
