Google Official WordPress Plugin

Do you have a WordPress website? Google has just released an official plugin for WordPress. You should install this plugin now. It’s called Site Kit and as explained by Google, it will allow you to “Get insights about how people find and use your site, how to improve, and monetize your content, directly in your WordPress dashboard”

Please visit the following page to find out more and then install the plugin:

sitekit.withgoogle.com

Once you have this plugin installed you can probably uninstall all the other non official plugins you previously needed to work with Google products (analytics, search etc).

It’s great to see the big G helping out WordPress webmasters with an official plugin like this.

Google’s strongest security, do you need it?

Do you want the reassurance of knowing your Google account is properly secured? Have you had your Google account compromised before and never want to have to go through that mess again?

Previously we have written articles on important steps for all Google users (this means anyone that has a Gmail or GSuite account). Here are the most important ones:

If you don’t have 2FA (two factor authentication) enabled yet, you should probably do that first and then come back and read on. Sadly, only 10% of Google users have enabled 2FA  although it has been available for over 7 years and is dead simple to use. Don’t be in that 10%!

Google has recently released an even stronger form of authentication utilizing a physical device instead of a 2 factor code you receive via SMS or an app on your device. This may not be for everyone, but if you want the strongest protection for your Google account make sure you read all about it on their site here: Google Advanced Protection Program

So in review, if you don’t have 2FA enabled yet, you should that now. If you want even stronger protection, maybe this new Google device is for you.

Don’t wait until it’s too late before securing your online accounts.
