This one is too good to pass up. I almost didn’t run it because I thought maybe I was cutting too deep, but I wanted you to see what an amazing value WPLaunch really is. It’s a fantastic value at the regular price - at this price it’s a no-brainer.

Right now you can get the Blogger Kit at WPLaunch for $97

A quick update on Rob's message... 

For some reason, Udemy changed their offer on Dan's course at the last minute. "How to Create a Mastermind Group" is discounted to $19, but you'll need to use the discount code bfriday14. A great offer for this course.

Happy Black Friday all! It's time for our yearly round-up of great Black Friday & Cyber Monday specials. I'll start a thread here as the list grows, but first off is a biggie from Long Tail Pro - $47!  

If you like Market Samurai for keyword research you will LOVE LOVE LOVE Long Tail Pro!

This, as many of these links will be, is an affiliate link

In addition to Rob's suggestions, I highly recommend and use WordFence. It is on all my websites and effectively shuts down brute-force style attacks (like the Login Lockdown plugin does).

However, it also has lots of tools that help you detect and fix any file that gets corrupted or modified from what it should be -- which is really nice as well -- if your site does get hacked, and it lets you know when plugins, themes, or WP itself have updates available.

It is probably my #1 plugin choice at this point.

It's usually a matter of prevention more than anything else. If you see something it can sometimes be too late. 

For WordPress I'd make sure you're using something like Login Lockdown to fend off brute force attacks, and use something like CloudFlare to guard your site as a whole.

We use both on all new set-ups at WPLaunch. 

I did this post on wordpress security a couple months back.

Rob -- How do we amateurs know if our sites are locked up tight?? :(

Just a heads-up website owners: seems to be some stuff going around with websites being targeted and attacked via SQL injection attacks, and brute force login attempts. Make sure you've got your stuff locked up tight!!!
