If you have a website, which you do, then you obviously need some social media share buttons. But what if the buttons you currently use display all zeros? There are probably very few things that are worse for your social proof than showing such numbers.
A couple of months ago, my domain got hacked. Kind of. I mean, the domain itself didn’t get hacked directly, but the problem was the server it was hosted on. Back then, I was a HostGator customer, a mistake I will never make again. Just to give you a quick heads-up on that situation, HostGator doesn’t care that much about their customers’ safety. So in my case, they allowed for a spam forum to get installed on my domain without my knowledge.
We all desire some recognition, don’t we? Some online popularity, preferably profits, and overall stardom…things like that. However, the road to success can be long and difficult, and at some point, we can stumble upon some disturbing signs that we might not be going in the best of directions. I’ve had a number of sites failing in the past, so I know what I’m talking about.
