The Importance of Site Rehabilitation
An assessment of your website is required to determine issues, and to provide the best solutions, related to speed, performance, and security.
A theme that is poorly coded, or with too many unnecessary built-in features can contribute to a slow, unreliable, and in some cases, broken site. Choosing a lightweight, reliable theme will insure your site works as intended.
Plugins that haven’t been updated, are poorly coded, or unstable will contribute to poor performance. Researching and installing more reliable plugins contributes to better performance.
*This order excludes plugins for cache, CDN, security, backup, and image optimization
A CDN stores files on multiple servers around the country/world, which allows visitors to access content from the closest server. Cache stores a snapshot of your website so future requests for data can be served faster. Both of these can considerably speed up your site’s load time.
Optimized images use less bandwidth usage, and render faster on the screen.
All of a website’s data is stored in the database. This includes plugin detritus, orphaned tags, spam, trackbacks, pingbacks, post revisions, post drafts, and trashed posts, which are the main causes of bloat. Cleaning up the database will improve site performance.
Web Host Migration
Poor customer service, slow site, constant downtime, prohibitive costs, or needing more functionality may signal that it’s time to change your hosting provider, which can improve site performance.
It’s now recommended that emails should be hosted separately from site servers, as web hosts are not naturally optimized to deal with emails. Emails can also use up precious storage and bandwidth. Email providers such as Google’s “G Suite for Work,” or Microsoft’s “Office 365” are highly regarded for hosting emails.
There comes a time when having thousands of posts can put severe stress on your database and your web host’s servers. One solution is to archive content without deleting them. It’s recommended to archive outdated posts for better site performance, and for better SEO as search engines rank sites with fresh content much higher. Sites that have stale content are in danger of having a lower SEO ranking.
