Today, we cannot think of life without computers. Be it home or office or any public/ private organization, we need computers for performing our day to day operations. We not only keep our personal data on computers but also use them for business communication and fund transactions. This makes the security of computer systems extremely important. It is required to keep the computers secure for optimum utilization and to safeguard yourself against threats, especially when you are using a network. There are few steps which you require to perform for securing the system.
The first thing which you should do is to have a properly configured firewall and install a good anti-virus software. It is also a good practice to create back up of files into any external drives like CDs or USB devices. Regular backups make sure that the files will not get lost if there are any external attacks or if the system crashes. Also make sure that you purchase a genuine copy of the anti virus and have the anti virus updated from time to time. Do not download any software, games, MP3 or videos if you do not trust the source. There is a possibility that you may download a virus in your system. Always have a spam guard to protect yourself from unsolicited mails. Do make sure that you are aware of the phishing mails and do not open any attachments from mails that look like spam.
It is extremely important that you never share your personal information online and be aware of hackers. Give a remote desktop access only if you trust the other party. Make sure that you are constantly communicating with the other person and in case of any suspicious activity, discontinue the same.
Above all, it is very much important that you use an updated operating system and never share your passwords with anyone and do not use common words as passwords.

GOOGLE is the name that strikes your mind first when you want to find something on internet. In true sense, Google is the synonym for internet. If you are looking for bakeries, florists, plumbers or even internet developers, all you need to do is to go to Google and search and find the right source to match your requirements. Google is the lifeline for businesses that are looking to be found by clients all over the world.
Generally a normal user would just browse through the first couple of pages in Google while searching for what they need. If they do not find what they want, they would in general experiment by changing or modifying the keyword they use for searching. Keeping this in mind Google brings up the most relevant searches on the first page for different keywords. For this, Google uses an algorithm which would measure the site on its relevance with the keyword being fed in by the user to get the best and the most relevant result on the first page.
Although Google’s idea is simple, the implementation hasn’t been that easy. There are many webmasters who keep researching on the Google algorithm and try to make changes to their websites according to what Google likes. This is a way to reach the first page of Google for a related key phrase. However, Google knows about such elements and to avoid such websites Google keeps changing their algorithm enabling such tricksters to keep making changes to their websites. The latest change that Google has made is very recent which has started taking effect January onwards.
Google has now emphasised on the way site code is written. Google wants the code of your site to be clean and easily read. In brief, Google wants you to keep the code (HTML and scripts) to be short and sweet. However, this is not the only thing to be able to see your site on first page of Google. There are others as well, but if you can just follow the Google guidelines on optimization, your site will surely rank well.
To sum it up all, type Google Guidelines for Optimization on Google and find out how Google wants you to build your website to be indexed easily by Google.
