Walter's Jewelry #FridayFlopFix Website Review

Walters Jewelry FridayFlopFix Website Review daily-golden-nugget-1504-61
This is my weekly website review where I search for a retail jeweler at random through Google and pick apart what they are doing online. I try to uncover the flops that are being made so I can suggest the fixes needed to improve what they are doing.

This week, I started my Google search with the phrase "jewelers Brookline, MA" and quickly found myself heading down a rabbit hole after viewing these results:

Identifying and Dealing With A Hacked Website

Identifying and Dealing With A Hacked Website daily-golden-nugget-1196-18
During my Throwback Thursday Nugget last week, I dug up the old story of bad neighborhoods and how they could negatively impact your website.

The negative impacts I mentioned included slower website response time, potential for server downtime, and lower Google ranking if too many of your website neighbors involve porn, gambling, or E.D. drug websites.

Regin: A Real Threat For Anyone Outsourcing

Regin: A Real Threat For Anyone Outsourcing daily-golden-nugget-1161-87
Many Hollywood action spy movies portray government agencies with amazing computers that can access unlimited computer systems, security cameras, computer networks, and more beyond our imaginations.

You usually have to suspend belief with movies like Mission Impossible and Eagle Eye because government agencies can't activate a cell phone's camera or activate the cell phones of everyone standing around you, right?

CAPTCHA: Good and Evil

CAPTCHA: Good and Evil 1696-daily-golden-nugget-1037
Perhaps one of the most heated website design debates I've read recently was about the use of CAPTCHA on website forms. You know what CAPTCHA is, right? It's that annoying string of characters or words you have to retype before you can submit a website form.

CAPTCHAs are used to prove that a real person is submitting the form on your website rather than a computer program. Spammers use automated programs to send solicitations through your website forms. The reason behind this Nugget in the first place is a recent flurry of s...

How To Tell if Your Website is Hacked

How To Tell if Your Website is Hacked 2370-daily-golden-nugget-794Microsoft and their Windows PC software have long been the target of virus and trojan attacks.
