More than twenty thousand sites are blacklisted each week by Google, primarily for malware infections. Another fifty thousand are blacklisted solely due to phishing. Once a website gets blacklisted, there will be no search results for the page at all, no matter how specific the search criteria or what you’ve done to help your SEO.
So what does this mean? It means if you want good ranking for your site, you absolutely must take your WordPress site’s security into full consideration at all times. It’s no fun to see a hacker turn all your SEO work into a great waste.
