If you’re not regularly monitoring your site’s security, you could be doing serious damage to your search engine optimization (SEO). Google’s algorithms are designed to reward sites that are safe and secure, so if your site is compromised, you’re sure to see a quick and damaging drop in your rankings.
That’s where we come in. At Phvntom, we provide an in-depth SEO service plan that includes regular security checks. We verify that your site has a valid SSL certificate and is free of malware. If we find any issues, we’ll work with you to resolve them as quickly as possible.

How Security Affects Your SEO
There are two main ways that compromised security can hurt your SEO:
1. Google will penalize you.
Google’s algorithms are designed to promote sites that are safe and secure. If your site is hacked or doesn’t have a valid SSL certificate, Google will lower your rankings as a way of discouraging other users from visiting your site. In some cases, Google may even remove your site from its search results entirely.
2. You’ll lose traffic (and customers).
If potential customers see that your site isn’t secure, they’re likely to take their business elsewhere. In fact, 84% of internet users say they won’t return to a website after a single bad experience—and a lack of security is certainly a bad experience. Not only will you lose traffic, but you’ll also miss out on valuable leads and conversions.
Don’t let poor security hurt your chances of ranking high in Google’s search results. Phvntom’s security SEO service includes regular checks for malware and valid SSL certificates—if we find any issues, we’ll work with you to resolve them quickly so you can get back on track.
