As wordpress continues to grow in use and functionality, more online marketers are relying on the content management solution to create their landing pages for ppc ad campaigns. Since wordpress is a program and database running on a service, this means there is always the chance for something to go wrong. As online marketers, we know ever second of downtime and error counts big… especially if you are paying for traffic on a per click basis!
The absolute last thing you ever want to happen to your site or landing pages is for it to go down, but what would happen if you had a corrupted file or hacker take out your wordpress database and didn’t have a backup and couldn’t fix the damage that was done?
It happens all the time to bloggers and people using the wordpress platform. Fortunately there are backup solutions like BlogVault that are very cost effective and crucial to the success of any online business.
Here’s how the system works and can save your but the next time you have any problems with the wordpress platform.
First thing you will need to do is sign up for a free account at http://blogvault.com. That’s easy enough!
Once you are setup with your account you can login and setup the quick plugin installation process. The system will then sync up with your wordpress site and start backing everything up for you. You can also have backups of all your data sent to Dropbox if you are a current user of their service.
Once you have everything setup it’s an all in one solution that will keep working for you day after day and you won’t even need to check on it or worry about anything unless you find any wordpress issues in the future.
With your sites actively being monitored and backed up through BlogVault, you can go through the History and Restore settings in their site to view the current activity of your site. As you can see in the screenshot below you can view the most previous working version of your backups, along with all of the posts, pages, comments etc being stored and safely backed up as well.
