WordPress Maintenance – Website Maintenance.

As anyone who has ever maintained a WordPress site knows, there is a lot of work that goes into keeping it running smoothly. From ensuring that all the plugins are up to date and compatible with the latest version of WordPress to backups and security, there is a lot to think about. But why is it so important to keep on top of WordPress maintenance? Well, there are a few reasons. First of all, by keeping your WordPress site up to date, you can be sure that you’re using the most recent security features and fixes. This is important in keeping your site safe from hackers and other malicious attacks. Secondly, if you don’t perform monthly database optimization, your site is likely to become slow and unresponsive. This not only reflects badly on your brand but can also frustrate and drive away visitors. No one wants to use a website that takes forever to load! So, as you can see, there are plenty of good reasons to make sure you stay on top of your WordPress maintenance. By doing so, you can rest assured that your site will be safe, secure, and fast – everything that your visitors want and expect. Read this article to find out why WordPress gets so many updates.

Performance benchmarking / page speed

Part of what gives you a good mobile friendly rank is your page load speed. With todays emphasis on mobile friendlyness you need to be doing everything possible to ensure your site is following this trend. That is, how long it takes to load your website into a users browser. 3 seconds is what everyone is shooting for and anything slower then that is starting to negatively affect your search rankings.
