Hacked and SEO Crashed

I am getting a weird Google result, its showing a japense page on google. I was hacked but I am not sure what all I need to do to fix it. I have errors in defender pro but nothing that looks to be the culprite. I need a few things:

1. Support on the hack, helping insure it doesnt happen again

2. Help with the goolge results that I lost, I use to be tops in my area, now I dont exist, almost like I got deindexed.

3. I am getting some search console social engineer warnings but I am not sure what do to do fix it.

I am willing to potentially hire someone to help.

    Hello Kevin Adelsberger

    #1: Well, it’s tough to ensure, because if you install a vulnerable plugin then there are chances to be hacked. So you need to make sure you use plugins from good vendors and all the plugins are up-to-date. You also need to scan files regularly using Defender to check if there is any issue.

    #2 & #3: You have to start over. You can’t be at the top overnight. You need to work on SEO terms for your site and gradually the ranking will be improved. What are the warnings you are getting in the console?

    It would be better if you hire a SEO specialist to work on this. Unfortunately, we don’t offer any paid help but you can check our partners’ page: https://premium.wpmudev.org/partners

    You can also check other freelancing sites like upwork.com

    Also, if you want I can move the ticket to the members forum where more members can chip in and help.

    Cheers,
