Hi reader!

Lots of changes are going on with Bracewell Web Works!  We're growing!  I've partnered with a great Content Writer as well as an SEO & PPC Ninja gal!  More info to come on that soon.

Do you check your SERPS to see how your ranking and maybe see that you've dropped down the page a bit?  Well, there's lots you can do (first make sure your site's software is current and is secure - https).  This month I've got some good tips to help you out of that SEO slump.  Read on . . .

BTW - all my hosting clients were upgraded for FREE recently with a security certificate so you site is now under https://.  For those of you that already had a SSL certificate installed, you'll get a FREE one when this one expires!  Woo Hoo!  Just know that BWW has your back!

And did you know that if your site is NOT under https the browsers will now display a message saying your site is not secure - YIKES!

Until next month . . .

PayPal users targeted in sophisticated phishing attack

A recently observed phishing campaign is targeting PayPal users with fake pages that are difficult to distinguish from the real thing. WOW - I did get this and ALMOST fell for it! Yikes!  But I looked at the address it was from and realized it was a scam.
