A well-designed website is never enough; the success of your site depends on many factors. One of them relies on an often overlooked factor: proper WordPress maintenance. All WordPress sites require some level of maintenance to keep them safe and running well. Paying attention to WordPress maintenance not only supports the security of your website, but also allows you to keep and get more visitors. It is important to remember that WordPress is a tool, and just like any other tool, it needs to be taken care of so that it can perform at its best. A site that is not taken care of simply becomes chaotic and more difficult to use. Therefore, regular WordPress maintenance is mandatory!
WordPress is one of the most popular content management systems on the internet, and hackers tend to target vulnerable sites for exploitation. They use vulnerabilities in outdated plugins and themes to load malware and viruses onto the site, causing it to crash and destroy your website data. In some cases, it took months before users noticed that hackers had attacked their site before it was too late. WordPress maintenance is an ongoing process. There are some activities that must be performed on a weekly basis, while others can be performed once a year.
The importance of WordPress maintenance
Neglecting basic website maintenance can have many unpleasant consequences. If your website goes out of maintenance, the theme, plugins, and even the version of WordPress you are using can become out of date. Hackers will start targeting your site! As a result, SEO performance will drop if your site loads slowly, crashes, or contains unnecessary pages. This way your website will not appear on the first pages of search engines and it will be more difficult for users to find you online.
The older the WordPress plugins, theme, and version, the harder it is to make regular updates to your site. Sometimes failing to perform maintenance can cause your theme to stop working properly, making it difficult to make simple changes. One study found that 75% of online users judge a company’s credibility based on the design of their website. This means that if your website is outdated, misconfigured or damaged in some way, you will lose customers and consequently money.
But rest assured: we’ll take care of everything! We constantly update both plugins and themes on your website. And we do it securely: if we deem it necessary we test updates on a copy of your website before doing it on the online one. We also send you regular reports on the work done so that you can always be aware of what is being done.
UPDATE PLUGIN AND THEMES
Both WordPress and its applications run on a comparable basis like the operating system on your PC. If you want to protect your website and keep it running, it is essential to apply updates promptly. That is why it is essential that they are always up to date, in fact most of the updates aim to improve security.
Plugins cause a lot of WordPress security problems. Research found that plugin vulnerabilities caused 56% of all WordPress security problems. Updating them is important to ensure that your site remains safe. Theme updates also lead to security vulnerabilities for many WordPress sites. In our monthly maintenance plan we update your plugins and themes on a monthly and daily basis, to ensure that they maintain high performance and security.
BACKUP? THERE ARE NEVER TOO MANY!
It is vital that you back up your website regularly. Having a recent backup is essential to protect your site data. This ensures that if something is lost on your site, you always have an older version of your site to restore before problems occur. The optimal frequency for backing up your site depends on how often changes and content are made to the database. Uptime monitoring, timely site backups and 24/7 security ensure you can operate without incurring downtime.
In our maintenance plan, we always back up your website before performing any updates. That way if something gets lost, conflicts, or gets messed up during the update process, we can go back to the old version of your site to fix the issues where errors occur. All of these hardware and software failures can impose downtime on your website, no matter how well done and well protected it is. This is why a well-defined WordPress maintenance plan includes measures that help a company overcome these difficult situations without suffering from a total blackout of the site.
LET’S CHECK YOUR SITE ONLINE
This sounds trivial, but simply visiting your site’s front end and clicking a few pages is a great way to detect any problems. We check your site online and browse some of the key pages to make sure everything is still working as expected. If Google has problems with the SEO or mobile optimization of your site, it will share the alerts in Google Search Console.
Finally, a good WordPress maintenance plan includes a dynamic strategy to improve the site in terms of performance and presentation in every respect. From improving the site for its loading speed to making sure it is optimized for the right keywords. A good maintenance plan ensures that your WordPress site meets every quality and performance term.
