What To Do With Your Analytics Data | SEO Tips, Advice, Help | Scoop.it

I have a very bad habit and maybe you can identify with this. For some of my higher traffic sites, I tend to look at my Google Analytics data a few times a day to see what’s happening, see what traffic volume is like, see where my visitors have come from, see if a post has caught the perfect wave on Twitter or Facebook and so on.

Protection for Your Social Networks [INFOGRAPHIC] | SEO Tips, Advice, Help | Scoop.it
Trend Micro's Titanium Internet Security 2013 is software designed to protect against the dangers from social networks.

Even Mac users are aware that they too are vulnerable to malware. But did you know that you need to protect yourself from hidden dangers on social networks as well?

Not only are there viruses, trojans and worms in cyberspace, there are hackers looking for clues to your identity — clues that can be used to steal your passwords, similar to what happened to a journalist from Wired Magazine last month.

It’s called “social engineering,” and Carol Carpenter, executive vice-president and general manager for Trend Micro’s consumer division, says hackers are using social networks like Facebook to get personal information from you. Your maiden name or even your pet’s name could help hackers gain access to something important, like a bank account.
