Using unique password is good for your health

Bernard Sfez -

Online credential stealing this year alone affected millions of users.
On the dark web files containing password and email from Netflix, Last.FM, LinkedIn, MySpace, dating site Zoosk, adult website YouPorn, as well as popular games like Minecraft and Runescape have been found and several database leaking have been reported from websites such as LinkedIn, vk.com, and Tumblr.

May be it is time for you to learn and understand why unique and different password for your activities are important and can save you, your work and your family ?

I received a threatening email today on an old mailbox used to compartiment SPAM and "unsafe" registration on different website and application.
A simple combination used for hacking, games or porn forum I had to scan to test tools... something like 10 years ago. :-D

Scanning them back I see one that was closed a few month ago and I guess the database was sold or ended in the wrong hands.

SEO, SEM, affiliates, socials, ads, analytics, CPC, PPC, ROI... Do you need (to understand) all this ?

Bernard Sfez -

Building a website is not a goal (or may be in very few case) by itself. I often see people requesting a Website... a nice one, with their logo, colour chart, have a slider, bootstrap, etc, etc. But if I ask: "What do you want your website to do for you or your organisation" ? I got a 10 seconds silence with eyes looking for someone else in the room to answer my question.
It happen a lot and that’s ok. Yes that’s ok and it’s our job as project managers, to understand our customers needs and to help them without wasting their time or money. It is to us to analyse and understand what is going on Internet and Digital Media, fields that are constantly changing and evolving. They got their business, their branch, their day to day task to run, maintain and complete !

A website is a part of a company strategy or a tool for an organism you setup for a purpose. Once you know what your website should do - how it should interact with your company, your employees, your customers and volunteers - then you can think about how and if you need people to find your website or something inside it. In this article I would like to share my experiences about "what you can do" directly rather than what and how serious SEO/SEM consulting company can to help you.
