Attracting new customers is something most business owners are passionate about. Modern business owners realize that without an online presence, expanding their reach is difficult. The main thing you need to start building an online presence is a great looking website

For years, the WordPress platform has provided business owners with the tools needed to build and maintain appealing websites. Nearly 40 percent of the websites on the Internet are powered by WordPress. Keeping your WordPress website running like a well-oiled machine will require maintenance. 

Below are some signs you might notice when it is time to maintain your WordPress website. 

1. Your Website is Significantly Slower

Making a good first impression on search engines and Internet users is something you should be adamant about. Your website is a representation of your small business, which is why you need to keep it running smoothly. When crawling a website, one of the first things the Google algorithm will consider is how fast it loads. 

A slow-loading website can make it difficult to drive traffic to your domain. These loading issues are usually caused by things like:

  • Coding errors
  • Having too many plugins
  • Problems with shared hosting
  • Large image file sizes

If you notice that your WordPress website has significantly slowed down, then it is time to provide it with maintenance.

2. Search Engine Rank Has Taken a Nosedive

Generating leads with a WordPress website is only possible with the help of powerful search engines like Google. A website that is optimized for search engine success will receive a lot of organic traffic. Monitoring the amount of traffic a website receives can help you identify problems early on. 

If your website’s search engine rank has taken a nosedive, this might be an indication that maintenance is needed. Lack of a responsive design, redirects and incorrect meta tags can be viewed as red flags by search engines like Google. If you’re unsure about how to correct these errors, working with professionals is a good idea. 

3. Plugins Are Constantly Malfunctioning 

One of the biggest benefits offered by WordPress websites is the plethora of plugins offered. Plugins are designed to make WordPress websites more functional and appealing. If you want to keep the plugins on your WordPress website working correctly, you need to realize the importance of updating them. 

Failing to apply plugin updates can lead to these programs malfunctioning. If one or more of the plugins you have in place are malfunctioning, then it is time to provide your website with the proper maintenance. 

4. Website Errors Are Happening Randomly

Dealing with website bugs and errors can be frustrating. Pages that won’t load properly and redirects can make keeping potential on your website impossible. If the number of website errors you encounter grows daily, it is time to take action. With proper maintenance, you can remove these errors and restore the functionality your website has lost.

What Our Customers
Have To Say

About three years ago we were looking for a new server provider, the problem that we were having was we are not “server guys” and we had over 400 clients to take care of. So anytime we tried to get support we had to submit a ticket, try to explain what was going on, and then pray that the response was in some form that we could understand.

After the on-boarding with Green Olive Tree, they told us that we had twice as much server than we needed and they were not set up right. Thank goodness we have found someone that really looked at what we want to do and gave us real actionable advice. It is safe to say that we have found our server company, and now we can focus on growing out business and not have to worry about the reliability of our support.

Thanks again Green Olive Tree, You Guys Rock!

John Owens

Green Olive Tree has been an invaluable resource to my company allowing me to focus more on my business instead of the management of servers. In the five years I have done business with GOT I have had zero downtime. Knowing that everything is being kept up-to-date and they are proactively patching system flaws gives me peace of mind that I didn’t have before finding Green Olive Tree. Jon has always made himself available when I’ve needed advice or help on upgrading servers or software and I can’t imagine ever going back to managing a server without GOT.

Green Olive Tree has been very good to us. Jon has helped us scale from 200,000 unique’s visitors a day to over 3 million per day. From 1 server to now 14 on a well-structured load balanced failsafe system. Not only that he has managed to reduce our server resources 3 fold by installing the right kind of software so we’re getting more power out of each server for the same price. He always responds very quickly and stays up at all kinds of crazy hours to help us out, the man never sleeps! I guess that’s why he was a Navy Chief, he brings that discipline into his work and that’s what we love.
