Top 10 WordPress Mistakes To Avoid

STOP MAKING THESE RIDICULOUS MISTAKES! TOP 10 WORDPRESS MISTAKES TO AVOID му USE DEFAULT ADMIN AS USERNAME Seriously, this is one of the best ways to help your site get hacked. Change the default admin username now if you haven't and use a strong keyword with special symbols. KEEP -WP AS YOUR SITE'S TABLE PREFIX HACKER Default WordPress tables start with -wp prefix and most WordPress users feel it comfortable to use them. Just DON'T! This practice makes your site predictable and more likely to be hacked. IGNORE CSS BACKUP AND WHOLE SITE BACKUP Back up your stylesheet.css before you make changes so you can freely change your site's style without worrying your site will be a mess with no turning back. The same goes with your site's backup. CREATE TOO MANY CATEGORIES BUT TOO FEW TAGS Ouch, your SEO hurts. Too many categories and too few tags make very bad site architecture. Less categories and more tags should be better, neater and more accessible. KEEP DEACTIVATED PLUGINS Throw away anything you don't use or not necessary. Do you clean your recycle bin at home often? APPROVE SPAM COMMENTS SPAM Many people might think that approving spam comments will add more value in SEO. Wrong. Comments are good for SEO but spam is spam. Spammy comments only hurt your site's ranking & break your heart. IMPROPERLY CHANGE URL 7. 404! When URL is mistakenly changed it will cause the loss of traffic – of course hurt your SEO. Follow the proper steps to change link and use redirected links to navigate from unavailable ones. FORGET ABOUT RECHECKING There might be unintended consequences after you install or update a plugin. Don't make your website look weird with broken style or some strange codes appear in frontend. HAVE THAT "INDEX.PHP" IN YOUR LINK sco PHE An ugly link like makes your site suffered with bad SEO and bad impression to visitors. REVEAL YOUR SITE'S INFORMATION PUBLICLY 10 Check your site to see if you have php or readme file visible.
