fishbat encourages owners of affected websites to monitor the outage to make sure that your rankings do not suffer after recent GoDaddy hack from hacker group Anonymous
Bohemia, NY – On September 11, fishbat released a video statement regarding the takedown of GoDaddy and a number of its hosted websites by a member of infamous hacker group, Anonymous. Scott Darrohn, COO of fishbat, walks viewers of fishbat Splash, fishbat’s video Press Release program, on what steps you should take to make sure that you don’t lose any search engine rankings after the outage.
As server performance is one of the factors that Google takes into account when determining search engine rankings, fishbat urges all owners of affected websites to monitor their situation and, if rankings are lost due to the outage, site owners should reach out to GoDaddy to rectify the situation.
“Now, what does this mean to you if your website’s down?” asked fishbat COO Scott Darrohn. “Obviously, you’re not going to be receiving any traffic. You’re not going to be receiving sales or phone calls; whatever your website is there for. In the larger scope of things, this can have a negative impact on your company’s SEO. If Google sends out its spiders and the spiders are set to crawl your website and it is down, that could have a negative effect on your web presence and Google’s organic rankings.”
Darrohn urges those affected by the Anonymous GoDaddy hack to act immediately, “I strongly recommend you go out there, you check your URL, check your websites, check your domain, check anything you may have with GoDaddy, because if it is down, you need to get it up as soon as possible.”
