Website security - how does it work?
When I load a website, I often see one to three other sites loaded and then the website I requested comes up. I have heard of website re-directs to combat unscrupulous bandits. Can someone explain this security in layman terms for me to understand the reason why and how it works?
The redirects have nothing to do with security and may also have negative security consequences. Security comes server side, not client side. That means that best practice programming and security are a must.
Redirects are often due to things like using a mobile device, changing page locations or the good ol' 302 theft that happened a couple years ago.
What this means is, there is no security added. It's done because the website owner wanted to add some other benefit.

I wondered if some of the problem lenses that are not yet updated for Hubpages might be better off unpublished? What are the consequences to scores and traffic when we unpublish something?

Ok, so I haven't gotten that aweful 999 error in MONTHS! and now, it seems there are so many perfect questions to post my links too, and I'm getting the 999 error! Anyone else having this problem? I was getting ok traffic from them, enough for my to be frustrated by this. Plus, like I said, today...

I just checked a few of my former lenses, and it seems like 301 redirects from Squidoo don't work anymore.Does anyone know anything about this? I used to have some social media traffic, mostly from Pinterest and Google+. That traffic is lost now. Cheers,

Why can't I log into Hubpages in Firefox?My best friend can, but I'm not able to do it. I can load the page, but when I enter my username and password, it redirects me back to the home page, not logged in. Any ideas?
