If you are into online business than hacking seems to be inevitable. It is seen that one of the reasons why a site gets hacked is due to SEO purposes. The main aim of hacking is to target web sites in order to try to manipulate the success of a site’s SEO campaign and at the same time boost rankings in Google, Bing, or other search engines.
One of the most used methods is called as ‘Search Engine Poisoning’. In this strategy, attackers try to abuse site rankings in the search results in order to monetize the site. One of the disadvantages when your website gets hacked is that it will hurt the search rankings in the long run.
