Performance and Security Matter
Having a site that loads fast is not the point.
Having a fast, secure site that makes you money is.
I can help you find that balance.
Discover what the real site drags are on your site and which ones have ROI or need to go.
Read This: Sites must be in working condition for the audit.
If you need immediate troubleshooting, contact me about that first.
Audits require cPanel access. Managed hosting doesn’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, get checked for plugin conflicts, misconfigured plugins, hosting resource hogs, 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! My clients enjoy faster checkups at a reduced rate for life! And you get access to our private Facebook group, too!
Why panic when I know how to DIY my own site!
My new site that was image heavy due to tutorials. Not only was I impressed with how thorough the audit and HTTPS conversion was, I left feeling like I took one of her courses with the knowledge that I gained from it. My husband and I ‘DIY’ most things…..and now that includes my website:) [more]
Consistent effort to go above and beyond
After MaAnna’s website audit my load speed dropped by 65%. She saved me time by pinpointing performance issues and potential security risks I couldn’t figure out on my own. Her audit was thorough and I was able to easily implement her suggestions within a couple of days. [more]

You’ll receive a 20-30 page report with all audit findings
We’ll have a 2 hour, non geek-speak live chat with screen sharing to go over the report in non-geek speak. You’ll understand exactly what’s happening on your site and will be able to make good decisions about improvements.
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.
