Top 3 Landing Pages
The 3rd most popular landing page was “Love On Top“, which was a post about how a group of friends and I produced a music video from the hit song, “Love On Top”, by Beyonce. We had original vocals, all the dancers practiced for about 6 months (once a week), and we rented a Studio in San Francisco, CA to film.

What was my goal?
– My goal this month was Website Security and teaching others how to secure their WordPress website a little more. After the Brute Force Attack made to WordPress websites (globally), I wanted to make sure everyone was at least aware that they should have a stronger password, better login protocals, and a back up system. Not to mention teaching others how to scan their existing site and add a monitoring system.
