The WordPress Wizard tends to the many details to keep your blog up and running smoothly.

The Wizard Maintenance Service

Are you too busy or not quite technically inclined enough to do the regular maintenance necessary to keep your blog up to date and running smoothly beyond normal posting? The Wizard can take care of those details for you. This service combines maintenance, traffic analysis, and backup. This includes keeping tabs on and upgrading to new versions of WordPress. When to do an upgrade? Sometimes it’s difficult to know. The Wizard keeps track of when an upgrade is stable enough to perform. Only then will your blog be upgraded to the newest version of WordPress.

Do you know that your plugins get updates too? New features, security fixes, and bug fixes can pile up until you don’t know what to do when. The Wizard takes care of all of that for you. Backup Service – Your WordPress database and theme files will be backed up on a weekly basis. Copies of the backup will be e-mailed to you and The Wizard will keep a copy too. If there is any kind of problem, backups will be available. If you want me to restore them, the charge is $120.00 per hour due to complexities and differences in hosting companies. However, you might be able to get your hosting company to do the restore for you. Traffic Analysis If you have a tracking service, do you use it? Many people don’t because they forget or don’t have time to delve into it. The Wizard will keep track of your blog statistics for you and e-mail you a monthly analysis in easy to read words. The information you will get includes:

  • Number of unique and returning visitors
  • List of sites linked to you
  • Your mot popular posts
  • Search terms people are using to find you in the search engines
  • Number of Feedburner subscribers and how the are subscribed – if you use FeedBurner
  • My suggestions on ways to improve

If you do not already have Google analytics, I will install and set it up for you. This service is available for self hosted WordPress blogs only – no blogger or blogs.

What’s the charge? This package has a setup fee of $200.00 (first month backup and analysis report included). After the first month, the normal fee is $189.00 per month – ongoing. You can cancel at any time and your reports, backups, and Google analytics that you have already received are yours to keep.

Current Client Special If you are a client of mine – if I installed your blog – there will be no setup fee because your blog is already setup correctly. I might have to set up Google analytics and a few other things, but the setup fee is waived for existing client. Want to know more? If you want to know more or want to register for this service, contact me. Thank you.

Blog Audits

Do you think your blog could be better? Even if you don’t, it almost certainly can be better. Let The WordPress Wizard do a complete blog audit and make recommendations on how to attract more readers and get more search engine activity.

Note:  Both services apply only to your own WordPress site – this means you have it hosted on a hosting account you have with a hosting company.  No GoDaddy hosted blogs for maintenance.  Sorry.
