Essential website maintenance tasks

After your WordPress website goes live there are many maintenance tasks that your website can not go without if you want to ensure it’s uptime and maintain a fast loading time. In this article I will go over some of the most important tasks that need to be performed on a monthly and yearly base.

Monthly tasks

To ensure a secure website your WordPress theme and all plugins need to be updated on a monthly base. Old plugins are one of the main reasons viruses can access your database and will usually cause your website to go down.

Create monthly backups to ensure that no data will be lost when something happens to your website.

Monitor your Traffic & Search Engine Rankings to see how well your website is performing, where your visitors come from and which pages they visit mostly. This will help you to understand your business better and can work as a tool to create more leads and attract more visitors.

Yearly tasks

Next to renewing your Hosting, Domain and Licences, this is also a good moment to review if all content is still up to date, if your website is still functioning correct and test if your contact and other sign up forms are still working correctly.
