So if you will use cyber security you will be safe from hackers and penalties also, which will help in your SEO ranking.


(4) Blacklisted Websites: As we all know, Google is the most popular and used search engine all over the world. It is the policy of Google to avoid and stop the users from accessing websites which are containing viruses or malware or anything which is not suitable for the user, so the search engines blacklist these types of websites. Google does not rank these websites. So if your website is attacked by any hacker and injected with a virus or malware, it is for sure that your website SEO ranking will be affected.
