WordPress Support: What's Covered
Keep WordPress Up to Date
Everyone knows it’s important to keep their WordPress site updated, but many ignore the task. Why? It does take time and sometimes it doesn’t always go smoothly, especially if a theme or plugin isn’t compatible. Besidess, if something works, why change it?
Hackers rely on this line of thinking to exploit your site’s vulnerabilities and love busines owners with a slack atitude to looking after their company website. WordPress updates don’t always add new features, or interface changes, they also fix any security flaws to keep your site protected and safe. It may not be the most enjoyable task, but you have to keep WordPress up to date or hackers may see your site as their next target and that is something you need to avoid.
Your Website’s Reputation
One of the less obvious side effects of not keeping your WordPress site updated is that hackers don’t necessarily attack a site to steal data from the site itself. Instead, they install malware which attacks the visitors to your site. When Google detects infected sites, the site may be blacklisted and you will be notified via your Google Search Console. You may be reading this and wondering what the Google Search Console is? Well if that is you, then you should contact me as it is a crucial part of any ongoing maintenance tasks for any online business.
You have no doubt encountered a website with a malware warning. Did you returnm to that site? I doubt it, you probably told your friends and colleagues to avoid it and to steer clear that site. Imagine if that was your website business?
Ok, so you may not know what a plugin is. Well WordPress is built on them.
If we compare it to a house, WordPress is the foundation your site is built on. Your theme is the individual design of your house and plugins are the building blocks of each area of your site. So as an example, your website is probably using a plugin for the contact form on your WordPress website.
Plugins are updated by their creators on a regular basis, to add new features and to ensure they work with the latest versions of WordPress and are compatible with the latest web browsers. They do this to ensure that their plugin continues to work on any sites that they are used on, hence if you don’t update your plugins on your site then you run the risk of having a range of elements on your WordPress site that may just stop working!
