Have you ever heard of a server problem through anyone you know? Or maybe some ones website going down for no fault of their own. If you conduct a business or businesses on the internet it is important, i mean vital, that you backup your website in case of disasters. They could be caused because of theft, fire, lightning, power blackouts, natural disasters like floods, hurricanes, volcanoes and even earthquakes. There is probably more, but are you prepared?
I am willing to bet most website owners trust their hosting companies to cover all problems, but they cannot! You must take care of your own business and back up your files. In a past life one of my job titles was Disaster Recovery and Security Co-Coordinator. My job was with a large Australian company who thought ahead and got in place a plan in case of a disaster judi online terpercaya. We tested on weekends our plan of being able to restore our complete Mainframe Computer System in a day.
Big companies realise that their data and clients are vital to their business and plan ahead, so must you. What they did as part of their normal operations was to back up every disk daily, weekly and monthly. Then these back ups were stored in a safe place both on-site and off-site.
What I suggest is to do the same and backup your website files on a regular basis. I backup the folder with all my website files (which I upload to the website server) onto a small hard disk that plugs into my USB slot on my computer. That then means that I have 3 copies of my website files, one on the website server, one on my laptop hard disk and one on this removable USB hard disk. Even a 4gb USB drive is enough(depending on the size of your site), and they are very cheap to buy. It is also a wise move to store this USB disk off-site, that is not at your house or place of business. If you go see your parents every week, make sure you backup before you go, and ask them to take care of your USB disk.
How often you ask should I backup? That is completely up to you and how often you change pages on your website. If you only change things once a fortnight, then once a fortnight should be enough. I personally do it once a week, but that is my choice.
Do not rely on other people to protect your vital website files, do it yourself and have peace of mind. A disaster could be just around the corner. What happens if your hosting company suddenly goes out of business or has a disaster? Simply load your website files onto another hosting companies server and your in business again.
Another important step is to make sure you have selected the highest performing keywords. Researching keywords is very important for SEO because you could waste a great deal of time, funding, and work ranking a site with a keyword that does not even work. There are many things that could be wrong with a keyword. You could choose a so-called browsing keyword that people use but they use it without actually buying anything. Other keywords could bring in little to no traffic or just be irrelevant. In any situation, reviewing your SEO rankings, stats, and traffic will help you get rid of wasteful behavior and save both time and money on the rankings.
Any good webmaster should work continuously to outrank their competitors. One day you might be number one and receive a lot of traffic, then the next day your number of visitors drop and you notice that you have dropped four or five slots. You might be very confused as to how that happened but the simple fact is that competitors have increased their tactics and left you behind. To avoid this unfortunate surprise, review your rankings on a regular basis so you can compete quickly and easily.
