Monthly SEO: Live Estimate
Redundant Remote Backups
Most web hosts will back up your website locally to your server (if backups are enabled that is). But it’s really not the most ideal method because what happens if you have a major issue with your web host or can’t access your server?
Having a remote backup is not only valuable due to the redundancy, but if you find yourself in need of moving your website quickly, you can simply download a backup, point your DNS records to a new server and you’re back up and running. That ability to move a site quickly is why it is so important for SEO purposes so that if the worst case scenario arises we can be back in business with little to no downtime.
In addition to a full backup of your WordPress routinely via the Basic Plan, this alternative backs up just the WordPress add-on content unique to your site and is distributed in a way that allows you to access it yourself at a moments notice directly in your WordPress dashboard, but stored remotely in the cloud.
Step 3/5: Total Size of Site in GB
I use this value to calculate the amount of storage space required to save a backup of your site on my remote server. I perform a backup prior to doing any work on your site, including content development and is especially important for maintenance updates.
Where do I find this information?
In your WordPress admin area, you’ll want to navigate to Tools and then select Site Health. Choose the Info tab. Look at the total size in GB and insert that number here.
