iMedia Connection Archive
The popular iMedia Connection site apparently has been hacked based on the message seen below. None on the site is functioning. It does appear they have started to publish static articles so they can continue to get content online. How much income are they losing because the site is down?
I have emailed the staff to see if I can find out more as to what happened but it clearly was a major hit as the site has been down over 24 hours.
I posted this quick message to give ya’all a reminder that this is a great time to backup your blog content. I backup my sites daily and put the backups in multiple locations. The interesting thing I’ve learned since the Magnolia outage is that it’s not good enough just to have a backup. You must actually test the backup on a regular basis to verify that if the need should ever arise, you can actually use the backup!
How are you backing up your blog content? Are you?
Earlier this year I wrote a futuristic post about what Google might look like if video ads replaced the current AdWords text ads. The editors at iMedia Connection liked the article and asked me to create a feature for them that expanded and took a look at, "What would it (Google) look like if the industry behemoth decided to saturate its products with more opportunities for brand advertisers?"
Check out the feature on the iMedia Connection site. Thanks to Nanette and the team for offering me this great opportunity!
