1. Use a different password for every website.
2. When checking to make sure you have not been compromised, check all your email addresses over the last 5 years or so (many people have {or had} email addresses that they no longer use, for example).

Really need to use a password manager, I have used Lastpass, now using Blur, which has other options as well. Best practice is to use a passphrase. This is easier to remember, but beware, sometimes spaces between words work, sometimes they dont. To be safe, I eliminate the spaces. The complaints in the article are spot on. I hate creating a strong password, only to find out after teh form is filled out, that there are "special considerations needed", and have to fill everythiung out again...
