The Challenges with WordPress
And Why WordPress Management Services are a Thing
WordPress and plugins need to be updated frequently. And while the process is relatively simple, stuff happens. In fact, a simple plugin update can take down your entire website.
Yes, WordPress is a lightning rod for hackers, because it’s the most popular CMS in the world, by far. Unfortunately, you must harden your website and remain vigilant.
Not So Easy
Sometimes the simplest things can be extremely frustrating— for a variety of reasons. Maybe your theme is counter-intuitive. Or, maybe it’s just buggy.
WordPress is supported by a very large community. But most of the info you’ll find is written for developers; outdated; or may not apply in your case.
Companies that build websites often have no interest in providing WordPress management services. That means it’s up to you to find a developer you can trust (easier said than done).
Not all hosting environments are suitable for WordPress. It’s easy to fall for an inexpensive plan. And it’s just as easy to spend more than you really need to.
Let’s Get Real for a Second
Nothing on the planet even comes close to beating WordPress. It’s flexible. It’s scalable. It’s powerful. It’s free. It rocks! You just need some help from an experienced WordPress developer. Or, you need to dedicate your life to designing and developing websites. Your choice.

Introducing: WPS Website Inspector
WPS Website Inspector — included in your plan at no additional cost — helps identify critical issues before they get out of hand. These visual inspections are performed by an experienced WordPress designer/developer (not a bot or a novice) on a monthly basis.
WPS Website Inspector covers the following areas:
- Content (typos, outdated text, readability, etc.)
- Design (visual consistency, image quality, typography, etc.)
- Technology (broken links, slow-loading pages, buggy plugins, etc.)
- Security (weak passwords, malware, outdated server software, etc.)
- Search Engine Optimization (blocked search engines, poorly optimized pages, etc.)
- Conversion Rate Optimization (weak calls-to-action, unclear benefits, broken contact forms, etc.)
