On 30 June 2015 WordPress.com introduced a new EU Cookies Directive widget you can activate on your WordPress.com website/blog, though I’ve not seen an announcement about it. You’ll find it under Appearance/Widgets.
The latest research statistics from Google Consumer Barometer suggest the UK is leading the US in a lot of online consumer behaviour, a surprising conclusion, perhaps, considering how many businesses still seem to find the online environment challenging.
Hardly a day goes past without me getting an email from somebody claiming to be able to guarantee that they can get my site to number one position on Google or wanting access to my site so they can do a ‘review’.
Beware if you get these emails, and report them: they are not just spam, but will almost certainly be phishing attempts — an attempt to get your personal details so they can carry out fraud or infect your computer.
