For anyone who is serious about their blog or website and is soon going on vacation, they will know that keeping a site up and running while they’re away for three weeks is difficult. This is especially a big problem for blogs because blogs depend on fresh content. If a blog does not update its content in 3 weeks, readership will start to fall and the blog’s traffic will start to decline. In addition, a lot of bad stuff can happen in 3 weeks. What happens if your server crashes? What happens if your site gets hacked? What happens if Google slaps a search engine penalty on your website and traffic falls 40% overnight?
That is why you MUST prepare your blog for your extended vacation. Here’s how you can keep your blog or website running smoothly (and hopefully growing its traffic) while you’re on vacation.
