Hi.

These last 2 days we didn’t Post anything since we didn’t do anything at all.

  • We didn’t even open Google Analytics. We needed to mentally rest.

We told you last last monday, but we’ll tell you again: writing a Post per day (this section post) + 2 long Pages per week is absolutely tiring.

But here we are.

 

In case you don’t know, in this section we talk about How we are building this Website: our SEO strategy, Theme and Plugins we use, our Real Results (Pageviews and Users we have)…

 

Today’s post will be divided into 2 parts:

1. How often should you backup your WordPress site and how are we currently doing it.

2. Today’s Google Analytics report with our daily Pageviews and Users

 

Let’s begin:

1. How often should you backup your WordPress site and how are we currently doing it.

Well, we have read plenty of things about this and so,we’ll tell you what should you do (is what we are currently doing).

 

1. Ask you Hosting how often do they make security Backups.

It is a simple request that will take you just 5 minutes.

Some Hosting companies do a complete Backup each month, other each week…

  • Imagine that they Backup-ed your site every week completely: we probably would suggest you to stop reading this Post right now (maybe not).

This is an important question in order to save you time and effort.

 

2. Do a complete cPanel Backcup once a Week.

In case:

  • You Publish on a regular Basis: more than 2 Big edited dense contents per week.
  • You employ several Plugins: More than 3 Big Plugins.
    • WP.Bakery
    • BuddyPress.
    • Yoast (we don’t actually use it).
    • etc…
  • You like trying new things: Themes, Plugins, CSS styles.

If you publish once a week on a simple blog without barely editing anything… You could do it once every 2 weeks.

The biggest WordPress issues come from some recently updated Plugins that don’t work properly with other ones or with the Theme.

 

3. Keep a Folder with all your Images.

In your PC or in a USB.

This is because the Export WordPress tool we’re about to explain, doesn’t Backup your Images.

 

4. Once a week, use WordPress Export tool for Backup your Posts and Pages.

It may seem a bit unnecessary since you already made a complete Backup.

  • This is in case you experience some problem with your other Backup (it could happen).
  • It is done in seconds and keeps the most important thing: the text you wrote.

 

You can Backup your Posts and Pages with WordPress – Tools – Export:

  • It generates, in seconds, an .xml small file with all the text published.
  • You could restore it with the Import Tool.

 

By doing this, you’ll have 3 layers of security Backup:

  • Your Hosting security Backups.
  • Your weekly cPanel Backup.
  • All the text you published with the WordPress Export Tool.
    • With your Images on a separate Folder

That is what we are actually doing, and what we have discovered to be the most recommended.

 

2. Today’s Google Analytics report with our daily Pageviews and Users

Users:

As you can appreciate in the Post’s top image (our real Google Analytics data) we’ve had 6 real users these 2 last days.

 

Pageviews:

Regarding our Pageviews, we’ve had 11 on these last 2 days.

Our website has been active for 2 months and 1 week.

As we say sometimes, if this data seems poor to you, you’re completely right, but on an average weekend we have been having 1 to 0 users and pageviews (check the graph above).

  • So we are optimistic about the trend.

 

Tomorrow, more.
