Why is WordPress Maintenance so important?

Creating and maintaining a website are two very different things. As it turns out, the real work only begins once your site is online. Besides content creation and site promotion there is the deceivingly simple task of keeping your Internet presence up and running, and in good condition.

Neglecting basic website maintenance can have many unpleasant consequences:

  • Increased page loading time
  • Lowered security
  • Decreased user experience
  • Declining search engine rankings

Besides the above, a website that is not taken care of simply becomes more chaotic and harder to use. Therefore, regular maintenance is mandatory.

Why Care About Website Maintenance To Begin With?

Why is maintenance for WordPress sites such an important topic?

If the platform is as sophisticated as advertised, shouldn’t it be a set-it-and-forget-it kind of deal? Why do you have to invest time into upkeep?

It is important to remember that WordPress is a tool and just like every other tool it needs to be taken care of so it can perform at its best. The CMS is no different to your car. Without regular maintenance and services, it won’t keep working at peak capacity

In addition to that, by doing smaller things regularly, you reduce the probability of having to deal with larger issue at some point.

Some of the Maintenance Tasks For WordPress Websites covered in the YBO Maintenance Plans:

 

  • Keeping WordPress up to date. – We always Install the latest version of WordPress (security fixes to avoid a hack)
  • Update Plugins and Themes – Out of-date plugins and themes are a prime gateway for hackers trying to take over your site.
  • Back Up – Regular backups are the cornerstone of proper WordPress website maintenance.
  • We examine Your Site’s Frontend – it’s easy to become blind to things that aren’t working right, therefore we scan the front-end on a regular basis.
  • Google-Analytics-Audience – A weekly look at your stats tells us what is working, which content is popular among readers, how visitors are behaving and much more. This information assists us in making tweaks to on page content and optimisation.
  • Delete WordPress Spam Comments – Depending on the amount of traffic, your site will accumulate dozens to hundreds of spam comments every day, it’s therefore important to delete spam comments on a regular basis to free up resources.
  • Consolidate Plugins and Themes
  • Optimise the Database – Like the rest of WordPress, the MySQL database accumulates unwanted data over time and maintenance also extends to this part of your site.
  • Scan For Malware And Signs Of Hacking
  • Eliminate Dead Links – Links either on your site, coming to your site or pointing to another website whose destination no longer exists. This can be because a resource has moved, the URL has a typo, the permalink structure has changed or simply because a page doesn’t exist anymore.
