    Safety Checks:
    WordPress Version: 4.5.1. (Updated from 4.5.)
    WordPress Plugins: All now up-to-date (Wordfence Security updated 6.1.4 to 6.1.5, Yoast SEO updated 3.2.3 to 3.2.4, Inline Google Spreadsheet Viewer update issue still to resolve)
    WordPress Themes: All up-to-date (2 old unused themes deleted)
    Spam Comments: N/A (site disallows anonymous comments)
    Security Issues: Currently, we haven’t detected any security issues with your site’s content.
    Manual Actions: No manual webspam actions found.

    Speed Checks:
    No speed tests included in this health check.

    Success Checks:
    Search Analytics: Favorable audience increase reported, but visible pages down 9% (stats update only) [1]
    Sitemaps: No errors or warnings
    Crawl Errors: 1 Temporary 524 error marked as fixed. Old sitemap URLs redirected. One bad link from marked as fixed for now (to block if recurs).
    404 Redirection: Installed WordPress Plugin Favicon by RealFaviconGenerator to avoid apple-touch.png errors.
    Blocked Resources: inline-google-spreadsheet-viewer/inline-gdocs-viewer.js allowed in robots.txt & 4 affected pages resubmitted.
    Mobile Usability: Still showing warnings for 7 pages despite theme change. Rechecked, and 7 pages resubmitted.
    HTML Improvements: 1 Short meta description reported [2]


    1. Fluctuations in visible pages are expected, but generally this is an early indication that content needs to be reviewed. You can monitor this in detail in Google Search Console. Alternatively, I can report those pages which have been dropped from search engine results, together with any pages where audiences is falling significantly. This is a monthly service costing $20 per month, or $200 per year if paid annually. If you prefer to monitor it yourself, I offer unlimited free support in this forum.
    2. The missing description is from the home page. You can add it using Admin-SEO-Titles & Metas-Homepage. However, given the maturity of your website, I recommend you create a fixed Home page. This allows you to promote your most rewarding content, plus any potential rewarding content that needs more exposure. Again, if you need help with this, just start a new topic in the main web hosting forum.

    Thank you for this valuable info. In response to your notes:

    1. I’m very interested in the monthly reporting service. It would be nice to have a list of current pages that need reviewing, and a list of topics for new posts. Does your service provide this? Will your report tell me which pages have prompted new topic suggestions, so I can link related topics?

    2. I agree that I will add a new front page to introduce my website. From my Google Analytics data, I see that my home page only gets 1.29% of my website traffic. Is this normal?
