In the earlier post I have talked about Google Penalty for unnatural links that are linking to your website. Most of the bloggers focus more on the inbound links and take precautions while making a backlink. But one thing that is also important is the outbound links from your Blog. Many bloggers follow commenting to make backlinks and as a blogger you can’t check each link whether it is safe or not. For filtering spam comments WordPress provide Akismet plugin that removes the malicious comment. But you can’t relax just by installing Akismet plugin as hackers attempt different methods try to fool the security measures. Sometime back WordPress Blogs came under scanner when biggest DDOS attack was launched against WordPress Blogs. To make your WordPress Blog follow the methods described in the post “How to secure WordPress Blog from getting Hacked – Top 10 WordPress Security Plugin”. Earlier I have tested my website security score using Opswat’s Security Score tool but recently I installed McAfee Internet Security (Read Also: Download MacAfee Internet Security 2013 Free License for 6 months) and found that when Google provides search result about my Blog McAfee Site Advisor does not provide any review about my blog which is not good as visitors tends to click on page which is shown secure.

As you can see in the screenshot above search result displaying Technokarak.com home page shows a ? which means the site is not reviewed by McAfee Internet Security. It doesn’t means that my blog has malicious content, it simply means blog is not reviewed. But this does affect the click rate as visitors think that clicking such pages are safe. So I decided to ask McAfee to check my Blog and wanted to share the same with other Blogger to get a free security review done by McAfee.
