If you are a Blogger, then your blog health can be a serious issue. Most bloggers use WordPress as their CMS (content management system).
WordPress is widely popular among bloggers and digital marketers for its features and wide range of plugins it supports. If you are starting out in blogging then you should always go with WordPress rather than Blogspot.
While WordPress powers most of the websites over the Internet. It is also the most targeted platform for hackers to target. Hackers hack the WordPress blog due to its vulnerability.
With every release, WordPress is getting stronger in defending itself but your WordPress blog maybe still not healthy.
Blog health might also get affected due to a poor hosting company. Always choose the best hosting company that offers solid protection against hackers.
Another mistake that newbie bloggers make is using cracked plugins and themes.
Many new bloggers do this due to lack of money to invest and go for cracked plugins and themes. This puts their blog health at risk as cracked plugins and themes may contain malicious code.
Instead of going for cracked and nulled themes, you should use free themes from theme developers like mythemeshop and others.
Also, keep your WordPress updated.
So now you have got how your blog health can be affected it’s now time to know how you can check your blog health without any plugin.
