We Care For and Maintain Your Website
Like any plant in your garden, your digital redwood website will need care and maintenance to grow to its potential. Pests (Hackers, Malware, Vulnerabilities) are looking for easy prey – websites with outdated and insecure configurations, plugins and themes. Don’t be victimized by lax maintenance!
This isn’t letting your car go another 1000 miles on an oil change. Your sensitive customer and internal data could be stolen, your website defaced, or used to power an attack.
Fortunately, Redwood SEO monitors, updates, and maintains your website with our Redwood SEO Maintenance Plan.
Just How Bad is the Problem?
“..Out of the 11,000 + infected websites analyzed, 75% of them were on the WordPress platform and over 50% of those websites were out of date.“1
At Redwood SEO, this is exactly what we have found in our own research as well, with the majority of clients having websites that are basically abandoned by their original creator – usually a freelancer or long-gone agency.
This is why we offer our Redwood SEO Monthly Maintenance Plans for all websites we create and for others in this unfortunate situation. You simply can’t “set it and forget it” or trust it to an employee who doesn’t know how to perform complete website maintenance or does it “whenever they can get around to it”.
How Many Websites Are Affected?
“As of March 2016, Google reports that over 50 million website users have been greeted with some form of warning that websites visited were either trying to steal information or install malicious software. In March 2015, that number was 17 million. Google currently blacklists close to ~20,000 websites a week for malware and another ~50,000 a week for phishing.”1
As the above indicates, the problem that you have been hacked, your website has been defaced or malware has been installed, snowballs when Google officially decides to list your website as part of their blacklist. From that point on until your situation is remedied and you apply for reinstatement, Google and others will display a message that will drive away current and prospective customers and visitors in droves.
