One of the reasons WordPress grew to become the most popular content management system in the world is because of how easy it is to get started. You can install WordPress manually using their famous 5 minute installation or use a commercial script library such as Fantastico to install WordPress at the click of a button. The process is simple.

After 20 minutes navigating the admin area, most users have a basic understanding of how you publish content on the WordPress platform. Additionally, the inclusion of the WordPress visual editor and availability of WordPress themes and drag and drop page builders means that anyone can create a professional looking website without knowing any HTML.

Whilst WordPress is easy to get started, many underestimate what is involved in maintaining a WordPress website. It can be very time-consuming and is fairly tedious too.

That is why many people use WordPress support services such as WPCOPE. These maintenance support companies provide a range of services and ensure that your website is safe and running efficiently.

Before we look at why someone would pay a company to maintain their WordPress websites, let’s first look at what is involved in maintaining a WordPress website.

What is Involved in Maintaining a WordPress Website?

I have been working with WordPress since it was first launched and I truly believe that anyone can learn how to administrate a WordPress website correctly.

Whilst there are many products and services that help you maintain your WordPress websites, you still need to spend time ensuring that everything is ticking over.

Below is a list of essential tasks that every WordPress user should make a priority.

Software Updates

When it comes to updates, WordPress is miles ahead of its competition. The platform supports automatic background updates so that minor and major core updates can be processed behind the scenes.

Whilst theme and plugin updates can also be updated in the background, it is better to perform updates manually through the WordPress admin area so that you can check that the upgrades went ahead with no problems. A simple error in an updated WordPress theme or plugin can be enough to crash your website, which makes updating them automatically risky.

Keeping WordPress up to date is one of the simplest administrative tasks for a WordPress user, however it is also one of the most important.

 

wpcope-wordpress-update

WordPress has an intuitive update system.

Uptime Monitoring

The longer a website remains offline, the more traffic and revenue your business will lose. You therefore want to be informed about any downtime immediately.

There are a number of uptime monitoring services available online that will inform you when your website goes offline so that you can investigate an error on your website as soon as possible.

 

Security and Cleanups

As a WordPress website owner, you need to stay vigilant and ensure that WordPress is always up to date. You also need to ensure that your themes and plugins are up to date and do not have any security holes or vulnerabilities.

WordPress websites are constantly under threat from hackers who want to steal information or install malware on your website. Failure to be proactive about the security of your website is guaranteed to increase your risk of an attack.

 

Backups and Restores

Do not become complacent and assume that nothing will go wrong. It can and it will.

Even experienced WordPress website owners need to revert to external backups to restore their website from time to time. This may be necessary due to your hosting company’s server going down, your website being hacked, or simply because you made a mistake when administrating your website.

Backup your website regularly to ensure that anything goes wrong, you do not lose all of your data.

 

Spam Cleaning

Spam is a major problem for all websites. Even if you disable registration in WordPress, adopt a strict commenting policy, and use a good anti-spam WordPress plugin, a lot of spam is still going to get through.

Spam cleaning is a boring unrewarding task, but it is something that unfortunately needs to be done.

 

Website Performance

A slow loading website will make people click the back button on their browser. Since website speed is a ranking factor, poor performance will also affect your search engine ranking and reduce the amount of organic traffic your website receives.

It is therefore imperative that you optimize your WordPress websites

You can optimize your website in a number of ways. This includes database optimization (e.g. less revisions), page caching, and utilizing a content delivery network.

 

Regular Checkups

Things can go wrong and things will go wrong.

Even when your WordPress websites have been set up correctly and optimized, you still need to regularly check your website to ensure that everything is OK.

 

Why Use a WordPress Support Service?

If maintaining a WordPress website is not technically difficult, why do people use WordPress support services?

There are many benefits to using a WordPress Support Service, but in my opinion there are three main reasons website owners would outsource WordPress Maintenance work.

  • The time it saves
  • Peace of mind
  • Convenience

Maintaining a WordPress website and ensuring that it remains secure and optimized can be time consuming. Hiring a support company to take responsibility of maintaining your WordPress websites means that you can focus your time and energy on more important tasks.

By paying a small fee to a support company you can free up hours of your time every week and increase your bottom line.

WPCOPE perform a wide range of maintenance tasks for a small monthly fee.

The peace of mind that a WordPress Support Company can provide cannot be underestimated.

WordPress support companies pay close attention to current security issues which means that there is less risk of security and performance issues cropping up.

If any problem does arise on your website, you are safe in the knowledge that you have a team of experienced WordPress users working on fixing the issue.

Those of you who have spent hours trying to recover data or find out which WordPress plugin is crashing their website will appreciate how stressful maintaining a WordPress website can be.

Website maintenance is also quite boring and repetitive so being able to hand over this work to someone else is incredibly convenient.

Final Thoughts

Ensuring your WordPress websites are up to date, secure, and efficient, is an essential part of running a WordPress website. For many people, handing over this responsiblity to an experienced team of WordPress users makes sense as it frees up a lot of their time and gives them the peace of mind that their website is always operating correctly.

WordPress support companies also provide technical support. Fix My WP, for example, offer 24 hour email support to their customers. Being able to get technical help on such short notice is great for non-technical users and WordPress users who are short on time.

Whether a WordPress support service is worth the money depends on the person and how important their WordPress websites are to them.

For example, a personal blogger who publishes content once a month may prefer a more hands on approach if their website is not making money.

In contrast, someone who runs a profitable WordPress website does not want to spend a lot of time doing administrative tasks, therefore having a company do this work for them gives them back a lot of their time and ensures their website does not go offline.

Today, we’re going to take a look at how one plugin—PageFrog—is going to make your life as a webmaster easier. It does this in two ways: 1) by setting up Facebook Instant Articles and 2) by implementing Google AMP.

Both Facebook Instant Articles and Google AMP are recent developments, and both are targeted towards the same thing: a faster Internet experience. In this post, we’ll dissect the purpose of both of these important projects, and how to use PageFrog to set them up on your own website.

Facebook Instant Articles

Facebook Instant Articles (FBIA) is a relatively new project from Facebook. It uses the same technology that loads photos and videos directly inside the Facebook interface to will allow your website’s articles to also load directly inside the Facebook interface.

This provides a seamless experience to readers who come across your website while browsing Facebook, while also ensuring load times up to 10x faster.

In fact, according to official statistics collected by Facebook, FBIA results in 20% more engagement with articles, and makes readers 70% less likely to abandon a website page without first reading it.

PageFrog makes setting up FBIA on your website as simple as a few clicks. Let’s take a closer look.

Setting Up Facebook Instant Articles

After installing and activating PageFrog through the WP Admin > Plugins > Add New Pluginpage, you’ll be automatically redirected to the “Setup” page for PageFrog. To start setting up FBIA, click on the large green button as indicated below.

fb-article-setup-wpcope

 

A popup will appear, with step-by-step instructions for implementing FBIA. Firstly, you’re going to have to request access to FBIA from Facebook. This part will take a bit of time, as it entails connecting your RSS feed to Facebook and customizing the styling of your articles to an acceptable format (Facebook has a guide to the preferred format here).

After the article formatting is complete, you’ll have to submit the articles to Facebook for review. Their team will ensure that your articles meet the formatting criteria.

This part of the process usually takes 24-48 hours—so if you haven’t already been given access, you’ll have to wait for approval and then come back to the plugin and complete the steps to start publishing your content to FBIA.

Once you have approval, head over to the “Publishing Tools” tab on the top toolbar on your Facebook page.

From there, click on the “Production” link under the “Instant Articles” tab. You’ll find it on the left sidebar of the page.

fb-article-setup2-wpcope

Hit the “Set Up” button (we’re already at the second-last step!).

fb-article-setup3-wpcope

Finally, copy the unique RSS feed URL for your website provided back in the PageFrog popup and paste it into the provided URL textarea down near the bottom of the “RSS Feed” box. The URL will follow this format: http://yourwebsite.com/?feed=pagefrog_instant_articles

fb-article-setup4-wpcope

And that’s it! Once you have access from Facebook, the entire process of setting up FBIA with PageFrog takes no more than 2-3 minutes. In just that short amount of time, you’ll be ready to start serving your content to visitors from Facebook at ridiculously fast speeds.

From 4.2 version and on WordPress supports by default the Emojis. This is a great thing if you like using them in your posts and comments but its not the best thing to do if you want to make sure your WordPress site loads as fast as possible.

Below you can see the amount of javascript which is loaded in every page of your WordPress site, called by /wp-includes/js/wp-emoji-release.min.js?ver=4.2.2

If you’re looking to remove emoji’s from your WordPress installation then you can follow one of the two ways which can be found below:

Disable Emojis using functions.php

The best way to remove emoji from your post and pages header is to add the following code to your theme or child theme(preferably) functions.php file.
remove_action( 'wp_head', 'print_emoji_detection_script', 7 );
remove_action( 'admin_print_scripts', 'print_emoji_detection_script' );
remove_action( 'wp_print_styles', 'print_emoji_styles' );
remove_action( 'admin_print_styles', 'print_emoji_styles' );

Use a plugin which disables Emojis

If you don’t feel comfortable messing with your theme’s function.php(even though its a very simple edit) you can use a plugin instead. Ryan Helner created the Disable Emojis Plugin which lets you do just that!

Keep in mind that even though you remove emojis they can still work(without hurting your site speed performance) through browsers which have built in support for them.

GoDaddy today is already being used by millions of companies to host their domains and an increasing number of those domains now run the open-source WordPress content management system.

In a bid to help provide advanced security services for all those WordPress customers, GoDaddy announced the acquisition of privately-held WordPress security vendor Sucuri on March 22. Financial terms of the deal are not being publicly disclosed.

Sucuri is well known in the security community for its research capabilities that have led to multiple sets of disclosures on previously unknown WordPress vulnerabilities and attack vectors. The WordPress 4.7.2 update that was released in January 2017, patched a highly critical and very impactful unauthenticated content injection vulnerability in WordPress’ REST API, that was discovered and first reported by Sucuri. The current WordPress 4.7.3 update which was released in early March, also benefits from patches for vulnerabilities that were first discovered by Sucuri.

“Since our inception we have always had a single goal of protecting our customers’ websites,” Daniel Cid, Sucuri founder, said in a statement. “We achieve this with two very simple approaches: build things that deliver value and that stay ahead of emerging threats.”

“We now have the opportunity to take this same philosophy from a few hundred thousand sites to millions of sites,” Sid added. ” From our conversations with GoDaddy it became clear that we share the same customer-first philosophy and commitment to helping customers be secure online.”

GoDaddy has been actively expanding both its security and WordPress activities over the course of the last few years. In December 2016, GoDaddy acquired Host Europe Group for $1.79 billion growing its overall hosting business. That same month GoDaddy also acquired WordPress services firm WP Curve.

Overall, business has been strong for GoDaddy with solid financial results for its 2016 fiscal year. For 2016, GoDaddy reported total revenue of $1.8 billion for a 15 percent year-over-year gain.

Cloudflare, the popular Content Delivery Network (CDN) trusted by over 5.5 million websites, has warned customers of a recent bug that releases private information to standard search engines. Due to some unusual circumstances, Cloudflare edge servers would run past the end of a buffer and disclose unauthorized data back to users if that data transversed Cloudflare.

While cyber security is always in flux, the most recent bug with Cloudflare, being called Cloudbleed, is one of the worst cases of data breached over the past few years. In fact, many security experts are saying that this bug is as bad as it ever gets because companies using Cloudflare can’t prove to their customer that their private data is secure.

Cloudbleed is a bug in Cloudflare’s HTML parser, and private data of users on any website using Cloudflare potentially exposed data to anyone making an HTTP request. The reason that this bug is so bad is that the modern web is designed to aggressively cache HTTP responses to help with speed for online content.

The scariest part of this entire situation is how easy it would be to access private data. As information was passed through Cloudflare servers, some data might have been leaked from any website using Cloudflare services. No matter if the information was passed through HTTPS, the private data could have been picked up by third-party scrapers and public search engines to be found by anyone searching.

Many of Cloudflare’s services rely on edge servers that parse and modify HTML pages. This type of operation allows Cloudflare to rewrite http:// pages to https://, insert Google Analytics tags, and enable AMP. The parser allowed for real-time modifications to be made to the HTML pages that Cloudflare performs.

While the parser is not the sole culprit for Cloudbleed, it is one of the ingredients that allowed for this to happen. When combined with several other elements private data would leak from buffers on Cloudflare services.
