The Step by Step Guide To Cleaning Up Your Blog
The WP-Optimizer Plugin has saved my posts/pages on numerous occasions, which is the main reason why I will never delete it from my blog. WP-Optimizer is the most effective tool to automate the cleaning and backup process of your site; creating maximum efficiency for growing viewership.
Depending on how many posts or updates you do to your site on a daily basis, you can choose the frequency of saves/# of backups to keep on your local drive. Just in case file corrupted occurs, you will have a fresh reload before the corruption happened, losing only a few minutes of time.
Since the variety of Niche WordPress Themes is so vast, the benefits of this backup process can vary. However, every site will see some level of benefit from this optimization method
Ha, listen to me, you don’t really care about my personal set-up with this plugin, right? You just want to know how to get this onto your blog and get it working right away.
Before we get into the three steps in optimizing your site with the WP Optimize Plugin, make sure you’ve also protected yourself from Malware/Virus attacks using the WP-Security Plugin; also, check out the Site-caching plugin WP-Fastest Cache. All three of these Plugins work in tandem with each other to create a safe, secure, and faster WordPress site.
