What happens if you don’t maintain your WordPress site? Most likely it will be hacked.
Websites are not a “set and forget” tool. They must be maintained, just like your health, vehicles, properties or anything that is continuously used.
In fact, 98% of WordPress software updates are for security reasons. Failure to update your site leaves it vulnerable to attacks.
What happens if my website is hacked?
Not only do you lose your website data and incoming leads and sales produced by the site, but your brand suffers because visitors are directed to a browser notice like this:
As a matter of fact, your visitor’s computers can become infected with a virus when this happens.

Why do You Need WordPress Support and Maintenance?
Unfortunately, more and more sites are compromised every day, as shown here:
The above graph shows the unsafe (hacked) website growth detected each week by Google between 2007 and May 2020. And yes – that’s nearly 2 million unsafe websites detected by Google in the week of 17th May, 2020.
Yeah, but my site is too small to be hacked. Actually, it’s not!
Site hackers don’t discriminate, and they don’t care how big or small your site is. They just want to control as many sites as possible for their stable.
These assets are then used to infect visitors’ computers, carry out denial of service (DOS) attacks, redirect users to porn or pharma sites or whatever else they come up with.
What are the top WordPress vulnerabilities?
The top reasons why WordPress sites are hacked boils down the webmaster or site owner not keeping their plugins, themes and other software up to date.
More than 55% of all WordPress websites were hacked due to a plugin that wasn’t updated. It’s the #1 cause of hacked WordPress websites by a huge margin.
You simply must keep your WordPress software, plugins and other add-ons updated consistently.
Your site needs constant monitoring and maintenance to ensure all your software and security is updated. Search engines discover hacked sites very quickly and remove them from the search results—killing all your traffic, leads, brand and credibility in the process.
Not only that, but all modern browsers will prevent visitors from accessing your site whatsoever.
