Understanding Updates and Site Health

Maintaining a website is a bit like keeping a car running smoothly; regular check-ups are essential. For Big Rig Media clients, understanding how updates and WordPress’s Site Health feature affect your website can make a big difference in how you perceive your site’s performance and security. However, the frequency of these updates and alerts can sometimes lead to misunderstandings about your site’s upkeep. Let’s clarify what’s really happening behind the scenes with WordPress site maintenance.

Scheduled Site Checks: What You Receive

Big Rig Media prides itself on keeping your sites in prime condition. While we conduct ongoing maintenance, you’re sent site check analytics on the 15th and 25th of each month. These reports are your insight into how your website is performing and what we’re doing to keep it at its best.

Updates and Timing: A Closer Look

Updates for themes, plugins, and WordPress itself are an ongoing reality of website management. They’re released at various times by developers around the world. 

Sometimes, an update might be released just after we’ve completed a scheduled check, which could make it seem like your site is a step behind. However, these updates are continuously monitored and managed outside of the analytics reports you receive.

Site Health Warnings: Navigating the Alerts

WordPress’s Site Health tool provides warnings about potential issues with your site. While it’s an excellent tool for preemptive measures, it can sometimes send alerts for updates or issues that, while important, do not compromise your site’s functionality or security. 

These “false flags” can appear urgent, but we’re here to assess and prioritize them based on real risk.

Your Website’s Safety: Our Top Priority

The most crucial takeaway for our clients is that regular WordPress site maintenance, including updates and monitoring Site Health alerts, is an integral part of our service commitment. 

Our aim is always to keep your website secure, functional, and up-to-date. We’re here to manage the complexities of website maintenance so you can focus on what you do best—running your business.

Wrapping Up WordPress Site Maintenance

Remember, seeing an update alert or a Site Health warning right after receiving your bi-monthly site check report doesn’t mean your site is vulnerable.

It’s just part of the dynamic world of WordPress site maintenance. Rest assured, we’re on top of it, ensuring your website remains secure, efficient, and aligned with the latest standards. Big Rig Media has the solutions to take your online presence to the next level.
