Apart from the Official WordPress repository there are hundreds and thousands of websites that provide free WordPress themes and plugins but the problem is you can't trust them always.
Yes, most of them add malicious code to themes and plugins that are not too easy for you to know.
Before learning about the treatment, let's discuss the causes.
This is why they added their special code
# To get a backlink from your blog without realizing it
#To get access to your blog
#To direct your blog to a spam link
#To add their advertisements and banners.
#To lower your website
Not only free themes and plugins, also premium nulled plugins and themes that you have downloaded from DOWNLOAD and torrent can also be infected by this malicious code.
Yes, I also fell prey to this free plugin. A few days ago, I was desperate to download the very famous nulled plugin from DOWNLOAD and after installing it on my blog, I learned that the plugin was infected and directed my blog to a spam blog.
I immediately deactivated the plugin and checked the code which caused redirects in the plugin file. After one hour I found the code and immediately deleted it [I didn't use the plugin now]
This incident taught me something very important.
Never trust WordPress plugins and themes that are canceled
But many of you may want to use canceled or free plugins and themes for God's sake. If you are one of them then read the remaining articles. After all we are all on the blackhat forum here ...
Detect malicious code
After downloading a plugin or theme, the first thing you should do is check for viruses, trojans, and other worms that you might not like.
Check for viruses and Trojans
Open VirusTotal.com and upload a zip file to check for viruses.
If your file is infected, you will get a red signal and if not, you can proceed to the next step.
Check unwanted code in Plugins
Now let's check the unwanted code in the plugin using another WordPress plugin called Exploit Scanner, which can be downloaded safely from the WordPress site.
After installing go to the Dashboard >> Tools >> Exploit Scanner and run the scan. It will take time to complete the scan and time depending on the number of plugins that you have installed.
After scanning, you can see a list of suspected codes. You can use the browser's search function to find plugins that you install from outside the WordPress repository.
Check the authenticity of Themes
Adding backlinks in free themes is a very common technique but you can easily find themes that are exploited with plugins called Theme Authenticity Checker (TAC).
Install the plugin and go to Dashboard >> Appearance >> TAC
You can see a list of themes installed with the results of authenticity. This will give a warning if there is an encrypted link found in a theme.
How are WordPress blogs hacked?
The WordPress blog was hacked for four reasons
- WebHost and your computer are infected
Bounce rate is the term used in the analysis of web traffic. This represents the ** percentage of visitors entering the site and then leaving ("bouncing") rather than continuing to see other pages on the same site.
If the success and goals of your business depend on users who see more than one page, then the bounce rate is high because it means your website doesn't retain your visitors.
If you use Google Analytics as a metric system, you can find site bounce rate statistics in your account. Just enter and select the website you want to see the average percentage. Once you are on the Home page, click on Bounce Rate metrics for details or open the Audience page> General description.
To see bounce rate statistics from each page, navigate to the left menu to Behavior> Site Content> All Pages. There you can see the Bounce Rate column, among other metrics. Remember that you can see the bounce rate of your site on a certain date and time span by changing the date range from the top right corner.
In this article, we will look at 5 effective ways to reduce bounce rates on WordPress.
1. Increase page load time
Slow loading sites are one of the most common causes of high bounce rates. Nobody likes to stare at a blank screen and wait for the page to load when browsing the web. If your site runs slow, it can frustrate people and eventually they leave your site.
In a previous post, we discussed many ways to speed up your WordPress site and avoid losing visitors, but here is a brief summary:
- Get rid of unnecessary content
- Optimize images
- Simplify your design
- Always update your WordPress plugin
- Enable the caching plugin
- Choose ...
2. Provide relevant content
Producing low-quality content that does not provide what your visitors want or is difficult to understand will make them bounce before going further.
Let's say you make an ad for the "Best WordPress Themes", but your visitors land on a page that mainly talks about WordPress plugins. They will see your site quickly and leave immediately if they don't find their destination.
Make the content clear and pay special attention to the headers and subtitles because this is the first thing your visitors will scan. When people visit your website, they hope to find relevant and useful content, so try to capture the most important points in the appropriate section (where they can see it). If not, they will not take the time to search your site.
Finally, don't forget to check whether your content correlates well with the marketing you use to direct users to your page.
3. Show post quotes
Quotes on WordPress are summaries of content with links to full posts. This gives your users the choice to click on the post they want to read.
Showing a brief summary instead of a complete post has many benefits. This helps to increase page load time, push more page views and reduce bounce rates.
If you are not sure how to display post quotes on your WordPress blog, here you have articles that will help you.
4. Increase site navigation & search
Depending on the size of your site, you might have hundreds of articles or more. For people to find what they are looking for, the search bar might be quite helpful because it will allow them to search all of your content quickly and easily.
In addition, the keywords used to search your website tell you what visitors want to find. They provide invaluable information.
The default WordPress search feature is quite limited. However, there are a number of plugins that can help you improve ...
The easier people navigate throughout your site, the more likely they are to do it. If not, they can easily click on another site, increasing your bounce rate.
Again, make sure you have relevant content with easy navigation and offer users easy paths to the next step you want. Not having a clear next step (or call to action) can cause a high bounce rate too.
5. Get rid of pop-up ads
Apart from being annoying, many annoying pop-ups or advertisements can make your users feel they are being scammed.
If they are not sure that your site is reliable and safe for any reason, they will leave in the first few seconds after arriving, because this has a negative impact on your bounce rate statistics. Keep your design elements clean and make sure they communicate credibility and security.
There are many other ways to reduce bounce rates in WordPress, but the five above are some of the most effective. Remember the most important thing: always produce great content that provides value.
