WordPress Website Maintenance Plans for your company

Your WordPress site needs constant attention in order to keep it secure and running optimally. Not maintaining your site affects your site speed, which affects your SEO ranking. WordPress needs to be backed up and updated on a daily, weekly and/or monthly basis (depending on the content of your site).

WordPress maintenance includes:

  • Website Backup: Remote backup as well as local backup of all your website and database files assures your site will be restored in case of server failure or a mistake that overwrites your files.
  • Updating theme files: Updating your theme files assures that your site stays compatible with the latest version of WordPress. Your updated theme files can also contain security updates, bug fixes and upgraded features.
  • Plugins updated: Plugins are constantly updated from the developer, so it is vital that these files are updated in WordPress. Bug fixes, security updates and staying compatible with the latest version of WordPress are reasons why it’s very important to keeep your WordPress plugins updated.
  • Updating WordPress Core Files: WordPress is constantly being updated to fix bugs and close security holes. Your WordPress site should stay updated to make sure it is running optimally and securely.
  • Clearing the Cache: Over time, your cache can become bloated and can affect site performance in a negative way. Periodically clearing the cache presses the reset button on your site performance.
  • Database Optimization: As your WordPress site gets more and more traffic, your database can collect unnecessary information and optimizing the database clears this excess data. Periodically doing this helps your site load faster and keeps the size of your site down.

These are just a sample of essential WordPress tasks that are needed in order to keep your site running optimally. There is also the fact that updating your site in these areas has to be researched before updates are peformed. For example, before you update the WordPress core files, you need to make sure the plugins and theme files are compatible with the new version of WordPress.  So, we make sure everything is compatible before we perform updates.

Why WordPress Maintenance is Crucial to Your Website’s Success

We covered why WordPress site maintenance is important to keep your site performing optimally. Site speed affects your SEO ranking.

Search engines give favor to sites that load quickly and are easy to use. If there are errors and your site is slow, search engines know this as well as your potential users, thus hurting your usability.

You have approximately 8 seconds to grab a users’ attention and a slow site will turn away customers.

Maintaining a WordPress website on your own can be a tedious task, not to mention disasterous if you don’t know what you’re doing.
