Today our team is launching a very exciting program at Gravityscan: a free trust badge program for your website that comes with daily security monitoring. You can find the full announcement on the Gravityscan blog.
Wordfence provides a comprehensive security solution for WordPress publishers, including the best available firewall and malware scan for WordPress. The Gravityscan badge includes a few additional benefits, which I describe in this post.
Wordfence currently checks two blacklists to ensure that you don’t have a problem with your site reputation. The free monitoring included with the Gravityscan badge checks 20 additional blacklists. These checks happen daily, and if we find a problem, we start serving a transparent badge, which quietly removes the badge from your website and ensures your content flow remains the same.
We then send you an alert email letting you know there is a problem. Gravityscan will continue monitoring your website, and once the problem is fixed, your badge automatically reappears. This gives you a reliable trust badge with daily monitoring that you can react to without disrupting your users’ experience.
Gravityscan’s badge program can work with any platform, including WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, Magento and many others. If you have additional software running alongside WordPress, Gravityscan will scan that too.
Gravityscan also checks your external website links against blacklists. If we find a link that has appeared on a blacklist, we quickly let you know about it so that you can remove the link.
By making sure that your external links are not on any blacklists, the Gravityscan badge program makes sure that your site visitors avoid visiting any sites that may harm their computer. We also help you avoid any Google penalties by ensuring all your external links have a good reputation.
Gravityscan’s malware scan works with any website and does not require that you run WordPress. You can choose between Gravityscan’s standard remote scan, or you can install the Gravityscan Accelerator which provides a faster and deeper scan that includes source-code scanning. The only requirement to use Accelerator is that your site must support PHP. Otherwise, it will run on any website and will give you deep daily scheduled malware scans.
Earn Your Visitors’ Trust
As you can see, the Gravityscan badge provides several additional benefits to help secure your website and protect your search engine rankings. One of the most important benefits is that it makes it clear to your website visitors that you take security seriously.
Trust badges improve conversion rates on your site by letting your users know that you are proactive in securing your website and keeping their data secure. This goes a long way toward earning your visitors’ trust and loyalty, and can provide you with an instant boost in revenue, especially if you run an ecommerce website.
Peace of Mind for Any Website
The Wordfence team recommends that if you run a website, you participate in the free Gravityscan trust badge program to help secure your site, protect your investment and let your visitors know you take security seriously.
I’m incredibly proud of our team for once again creating an innovative security solution for our customers that helps secure their websites and improves online security overall. Setting up the badge on your site is easy, fast, and best of all, completely free.
Install the Gravityscan Trust Badge on your site today.
