Hi Kerry. I'm doing some stuff on Pinterest and need your help claiming my domain name. I am sending you both the meta tag and html file. Can you insert them on my site please.
The Blog Mechanic
Hi Leigh. I've added the meta tag to your theme and uploaded the html file to the root of your server. You should be able to claim your website now. Let me know if you have any questions.
Your WordPress Blog Is Crucial To The Success Of Your Online Business
Your blog is the engine that powers your entire online business. It generates leads, customers and revenue. It's also a channel of communication through which potential business partners and sponsors will use to find and connect with you. It is fundamental to your success and you want peace of mind knowing that it is available online and running smoothly for your audience 24/7 without interruption.
More Than 5000 WordPress Websites Get Hacked Everyday
Hackers are everywhere and they are ruthless. They don't care how small or big a website is, who it belongs to, or how much money it generates. They just get a buzz out of destroying any website they can. It's sad but it's true and unfortunately WordPress is an easy target.
Software Updates Are Unpredictable
All software needs updating, including the software that powers WordPress, but you MUST be careful. If you don’t perform updates properly you run the risk of breaking important website functionality, or even worse, breaking your blog completely, making it inaccessible to both you and your readers.
Your Blog Will Never Be Finished
Creating a blog is not like creating a product or service that has a clear finite end of completion. With a blog there will always be something new that demands your time and attention such as ...
- adding new features
- content changes
- design edits
- bug fixes
- performance issues
- software conflicts ...
And many more small development tasks that take you away from what you should be doing to grow your business which is writing great content and building relationships with prospects, customers, and potential business partners.
What Do I Offer?
Each month I will proactively take care of all essential maintenance tasks needed to keep your website secure, loading fast and running smoothly.
On the Manage and VIP plans, with your dedicated support time you can call on me for hands-on help with all the little nitty gritty development tasks that suck your time and attention, freeing you up to focus on what you do best to accelerate business growth.
WEBSITE CARE PLAN FEATURES
Support That Makes Your Life Easier
ESSENTIAL MAINTENANCE & REPORTING
Each month, to keep your blog secure, loading fast and running smoothly, I will perform my essential maintenance checklist. This includes backups, updates, security, uptime monitoring, find and fix 404 broken links, spam & post revision clean up, database optimisation and more. All of this is detailed in a monthly email report.
DEVELOPMENT SUPPORT TIME
With your dedicated development support time, each month you can call on me for technical help regarding the majority of your needs. Examples include design edits, content updates, set up your new plugin, configure Google Analytics, add optin forms, add PayPal buttons, split test headlines and more. It's your time to use.
EXPERT ADVICE & GUIDANCE
I am here to provide you with technical guidance, advice and the answers you need to achieve your website goals. Don't waste your time looking for answers on Google. Just ask questions when they pop up and get quick answers via email.
SITE SPEED OPTIMISATION
Slow websites get penalised by Google. That means less organic traffic for your blog. And research shows that a tiny 1 second delay in load time can lead to a 7% loss in revenue. To make sure this doesn't happen to you, each month I will perform a site speed audit and fix any found issues that may be making your blog load slowly.
STRATEGY & PLANNING CONSULTATION
Strategy and planning consultations are a great way to brainstorm the technical aspects of your next big project or product launch. Each month you have the option to schedule a 60 minute consulting call with me to bounce ideas off.

Frequently Asked Questions
Manage Website Care Plan members, your support time does not rollover month to month. But don’t worry, if I see you have not used it as we approach the end of the calendar month, I will make suggestions of things I can do to improve your blog with your unused support time, so it won't be wasted.
VIP Website Care Plan members, if you prefer to do so, your support time can rollover month to month. You can save up your support time for a later date to work on bigger projects such as setting up a sales funnel or building a membership site.
Making small website changes such as design edits, adding new features and updating content are the most common requests. However, it’s your time to use and you can request my help with any task that requires the use of technology, providing it’s directly related to the growth of your WordPress website. Some examples include …
Help with Google Analytics. Help with autoresponder services. Help with web hosting tasks. Help with Webmaster tools and any other 3rd party software that integrates with your WordPress blog.
The short answer is, I'll fix it. But that likely won't happen because I go out of my way to test updates and ensure no compatibility issues occur. On the rare occasion an update does break something, I will quickly restore your site using a backup made before the update was performed and contact you with my recommended action steps to resolve the issue.
Before I answer this question, it's important for you to understand that it's impossible to have a 100% secure website, but there are things we can do to make it extremely difficult for those dirty little gremlins to break your blog, and that's the whole purpose of my website care plans - preventive care.
I use the best security and malware monitoring tools on the web, and I act fast to remove malware as soon as it's detected. In the rare instance a website does get hacked whilst in my care, I will clean it for you.
If you have a task that requires more than your dedicated monthly support time, additional support hours can be purchased at the current hourly rate of $100 /ph or $300 for five hours.
I am based in Madeira, Portugal and my support hours are Monday through Thursday, and Sunday, 9am to 5pm WET
For month to month subscriptions, I accept PayPal payments only. For yearly billing, I accept PayPal and bank transfer.
No refunds are available after your purchased care plan package has been started.
Absolutely not! You can cancel any time. Just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will immediately stop the next payment.
