Performance and Security Matter
You need your site to be safe and running at peak to be successful.
Put a pair of qualified eyes on your site!
NOTE: Sites must be in working condition for the audit. If you need immediate troubleshooting, contact my fave fix-it guy first.
Audits require cPanel access and can’t be performed on managed hosting like WPEngine, as they don’t allow access to all the data we need.
Plug the Holes
On average I find 26 security holes and performance drains that no plugin or scanner catches. Plus, plugins conflicts, misconfigured plugins, orphaned files, bloated databases, abandoned sites, and so much more.
After your audit and cleanup, you’ll know how to better DIY your site maintenance. But, nothing about security and performance is set it and forget it! Returning clients enjoy faster checkups at a reduced rate, for life!

Site Audit Testimonials
Her explanations, understanding and knowledge are extensive
Consistent effort to go above and beyond
Prevention is the key!
It’s a whale of a lot cheaper and less chaotic to do a site audit BEFORE the bots attack or your site is hacked.
Audits are not a substitute for troubleshooting. Audits are to identify security and performance issues. If you suspect that your site has been hacked or has a known issue, we’ll need to get that fixed first. And then do the audit.
