How do I manage my WordPress site?

The single most important aspect of managing your WordPress site is to keep both WordPress and all plugins up to date. Both can have security vulnerabilities, and many security breaches are via older versions of WordPress or plugins.

Beyond that, you need to stay abreast of industry developments. Many of these are mandated by Google, so if you keep any eye on their recommendations to webmasters, you’ll usually know what is happening.

Examples of changes mandated by Google over the last few years include:

  • Mobile readiness
  • Server and page load speed
  • Secure serving via https
