    Hello BHW,

    I see someone try to hack my site. He is doing this until he delete Robots.txt file or 403 Forbidden. When I again Replace Robots.txt he again start trying to do so.

    I see, I droped 4-5 Rank for every keyword.


    How Can I Protect this ? Please Suggest Me to fix this.


    Thanks.

    I guess your using WP and this is often caused due to the current theme.
    It seems, it ain't updated or cracked or you can say malware easy-to-crack.

    scan your existing sites for any compromised scripts, installed wordfence and hardening your wordpress through .htaccess

    1)Make sure your WP is updated to the latest version and all the plugins used are from legit sources.
    2)install WP security and follow the steps recommended to improve your score on most counts. (such as change the admin login URL, default DB prefix.. and so on)
    3) make sure that the PC you use to access the site is secure and malware free and reinstall your site. white listing your IP for admin will also make sure to prevent any un-authorised access)
    These steps should help.
