Cybercrime Magazine Website

We pride ourselves on the fact that “All” of these impressions are organic and “Unpaid,” the result of highly relevant information that our audience is seeking on the topics of cybercrime and cybersecurity.

The most popular pages on our website over the past year are our daily cyberattack and data breach feed, our daily privacy and security news feed, our annual cybercrime and jobs reports, our list of hacker and cybersecurity movies, our top 10 cybersecurity predictions and statistics, and our lists of cybersecurity associations.

The world’s largest media outlets cite us as the source for cybereconomic data and statistics around cybercrime, cybersecurity, ransomware, cyberinsurance, employment, and more.

We are also the go-to source for market data featured and quoted by major tech and cybersecurity vendors, publications, associations, government, law enforcement, academia, analysts, and industry experts.

SEO

For many popular search phrases in our industry, the Cybersecurity Ventures website is the first organic non-paid listing on the first page of results, or one of the first few listed. Our website traffic, and the relevance, thoroughness and quality of our content, earns us this SEO (we do not pay for it).

A few examples of words and phrases that will bring us up at or near the top on a Google search: Boardroom Cybersecurity; CISO List; Cryptocrime; Cybercrime Cost; Cybercrime Podcast; Cybersecurity Associations; Cybersecurity Cartoons; Cybersecurity Research; Cybersecurity Search Firms; Cybersecurity Venture Capital; Fortune 500 CISO; Hacker Movies, Ransomware Report; Women In Cybersecurity.

Type-In Traffic

Cybersecurity Ventures owns hundreds of domain names, and many of them are “exact match” dot com domain names for the purpose of driving type-in traffic to our site.

An exact match domain (or EMD) includes a keyword or phrase plus .com that an internet user is likely to type into their web browser expecting to find exactly what they are looking for, or something as close to it as possible. For instance, someone might type cryptocrime.com (a domain that we own) into their browser if they are looking for information on cryptocrime. When they do that, they will (securely) land on the cybersecurityventures.com website on a landing page dedicated to cryptocrime, and that is an example of type-in traffic.

A few examples of domain names that we own and put to use for type-in traffic are cryptocrime.com, phreaking.com, lawfulaccess.com, phishingcampaign.com, psychosecurity.com, ransomwarereport.com, securitynudge.com, and simulatedphishing.com.

Similarly, misspelled domain names are valuable for type-in traffic. If someone types in cybrcrime.com (cybrcrime is the common misspelling of cybercrime), then they’ll land on our homepage.

The same is true with foreign languages. If someone types in cibercrime.com (cybercrime is Portuguese for cybercrime), then they’ll also land on our homepage. This is a valuable source of type-in traffic when you consider that Brazil is the largest country in Latin America, with an estimated population of 215 million, and Portuguese is spoken by 98 percent of people in Brazil.

Even competitive media outlets quote our market data to tell their own audiences about us.
