More security notifications via Google Analytics

More security notifications via Google Analytics


Over a year ago, we launched Safe Browsing alerts in Google Analytics to warn users about websites identified as compromised and being used for distributing malware or phishing attacks. Since launch, we’ve alerted more than 24,000 Google Analytics property owners whose websites had been compromised by 3rd parties.

Today, we’re happy to announce that we’ll be expanding our set of alerts in Google Analytics by adding notifications about sites hacked for spam in violation of our Webmaster Guidelines. In the unlikely event of your site being compromised by a 3rd party, the alert will flag the affected domain right within the Google Analytics UI and will point you to resources to help you resolve the issue.


What can you do to prevent your site being compromised?



Prevention plays an important role in keeping your site, and your users, safe. We’ve recently published tips and best practices to protect your content on the web, we recommend them to any site, large or small.


Verify your site on Search Console.

Aside from receiving alerts in Google Analytics or via Search results labels when your site is compromised, we recommend taking the extra step to verify your site in Search Console.

The Security Issues feature will alert you when things don’t look good and will pin-point the issues we’ve uncovered on your properties. We have detailed a recovery journey in our hacked step-by-step recovery guide to help you resolve the issue and keep your website and users safe.

We’re always looking for ideas and feedback—feel free to use the comments section below. For any support questions, visit google.com/webmasters and our support communities available in 14 languages.

About the Author:

http://about.me/deetsmike/# My life has been amazing. Not in the "fantastic" sense but in the way that I look back and say to myself God was and is always with me. I am truly blessed. I am humbled every day by the people I meet. People with so much passion for life. People amaze me all the time. I want to help whenever I can and be the absolute best person first to God, to myself, to my family , to my friends and to people I meet...In that EXACT order. I worked hard growing up. I knew that I always wanted to be the best...Not the best I could be,..Just the best! Being the best I could be was a lesson that I would learn later in life.
