There is a lot of talk about WordPress website maintenance, what you should and shouldn’t be doing. To put it simply, your WordPress site is like a car. Without regular up-keep and some TLC that site you once knew and loved could start to have problems, break down, or even break all together. But don’t worry, in this guide I am going to show you the important things you should be doing to keep your website running smoothly.
