How to Manage Large-Scale WordPress Sites

manage large-scale WordPress sites featured

You probably know WordPress as a popular blogging platform, but only few are aware of the real possibilities and power that WordPress contains. The platform has tremendously improved over the past few years, and nowadays the number of large-scale WordPress-powered sites are increasing every day. 

As of March 2021, WordPress hosts 40% of all the websites on the web (you can see the official statistics here). That number was just 32% three years ago, and WordPress’ growth is showing no signs of slowing down. It’s extremely likely that we will see higher numbers in the coming years.

From large-scale blogs to multi-million dollar online shops, WordPress can power literally anything.

62% of the top 100 fastest growing companies in the US (Inc. 5000) use WordPress.

Let’s take a look at a very brief list of well-known websites powered by WordPress from different categories:

There are so many more out there.

Before we go any further, let’s clarify what I mean by “large-scale” websites. We are not talking about large-scale bank transactions, SAAS services with millions of users, or telecom operators with huge databases. Rather, a large website could mean a big magazine website with hundreds of thousands of articles, or an online shop with tens of thousands of products and transactions. Scale refers not only to the amount of data, but also to traffic. To provide an example, a website with around 1 million weekly hits can be considered a large-scale WordPress website.You may be wondering if WordPress has any limitations in scaling or if the rules change when handling large scale websites. Let’s find out! In this article, we will cover the most important tips you need to manage large-scale WordPress websites.

Choosing the right hosting 

Hosting infrastructure probably plays the biggest role in the scaling of a WordPress site. Good hosting can greatly improve your site performance in many ways Hostings that place limits on server space use are not the best choice, as a simple traffic spike may cause your site to crash without warning. This is why you should choose the best hosting partner for your project.

There are many different hosting options out there for you to choose from, so let’s list the several types that can be used for large-scale projects. Please note that I will not cover shared hosting, as it’s not a great option for the purposes of this article.

VPS or virtual private server

VPS hosting can be used for middle- to large-scale projects. It’s a step ahead of shared hosting and dedicated WordPress hosting, as it provides a unique space for each project on the server and keeps your data separate from that of other users. However, while it’s a great choice in terms of customization options and storage space, VPS hosting can have issues dealing with high traffic levels and spikes. If you decide to go with VPS hosting, make sure it offers plenty of resources and options for scaling in case your site experiences increased demand.

Dedicated WordPress hosting

First and foremost, using this kind of hosting requires an advanced level of knowledge of server maintenance. This kind of hosting involves renting a server yourself, allowing you to have full root and admin access to anything and anywhere. While everything is under your control, sometimes this degree of control comes with a price: dedicated hosting is one of the most expensive hosting options. While it can be used for high levels of web traffic, it’s best for projects where you need complete control of the server and definitely requires technical expertise to maintain.

Cloud hosting

This kind of hosting involves several computers working together to provide cloud infrastructure. As the web project therefore runs on combined computing resources, this kind of hosting is very good for scaling your project. Cloud hosting allows you to increase the resources for your project with a single click. Plus, the website owner pays only for resources used and there is rarely a fixed price. With cloud hosting, resources are spread across many servers, meaning that project downtime is reduced to almost 0.

Managed hosting

This type of hosting does not rely on its own infrastructure, but instead offers hardware and software configuration, maintenance and technical support for third party large-scale hosting providers. This is basically a simplified version of dedicated hostings, but a properly configured server can handle high level traffic spikes. 

One important point when choosing your hosting partner is scalability. It’s unlikely that your project will see extremely heavy traffic all the time, but it should be able to handle heavy loads in the event of traffic spikes. 

In some cases, you’ll need more physical resources from your hosting to handle such traffic. Both CPU and RAM are crucial, and your server should be able to keep up with increased traffic and must provide enough hardware resources when needed. That’s the key to vertical scaling! 

In the instance that not enough physical resources are available to handle increased need, any type of server may end up bottlenecked. To prevent this, you’ll want to balance your increased traffic across multiple servers. This is what we mean when we refer to Horizontal Scaling! Good servers should be able to autoscale when needed by adding more web nodes.

Performance and optimization

It goes without saying that large-scale websites must be better optimized than casual blog sites. When it comes to large-scale website optimization, every little detail counts. There are several points that are especially important when working on optimization, so let’s review them.

Updated software is a must

We all know that WordPress is an open-source project with frequent updates. Every new update not only fixes previous problems but also provides new security solutions and optimized features. As a large-scale website owner, it’s your responsibility to always keep your project updated.

Background Processes optimization

There are a number of background tasks that operate behind the scenes in WordPress. If you run a large-scale website, then you will likely have to deal with even more background tasks at a larger scale Some examples include backups, various CronJob tasks like publishing posts, products, settings, Cron job for update verification, search engines trying to fetch new content from the site and much more. Some of these tasks have a minor impact but tasks like file backup may require lots of resources, so you should always distribute your server resources in a way that will not affect overall functionality.

Use CDN

CDN, or Content Delivery Network, is old news for web developers. The location of the web server may impact user experience. For example, if you have servers in Germany, your site will load faster for users in Germany than users in the USA. That’s where CDN comes into play‒‒it can fix this issue by holding static files of your website in a network of the servers around the globe. These static files include images, CSS and Javascript. This way, when visitors click to your website, they are loading files from the closest server to their location.

Always use themes optimized For speed

As mentioned before, every detail matters when it comes to the large-scale WordPress sites. That’s why you need to choose your theme carefully; while you may like stylish and modern-looking templates, if they are poorly coded they will end up slowing down your site. 

Best practice in this matter shows that it’s always better to use simple themes or niche-oriented themes instead of general themes that are bloated with thousands of functions you may not even use. You can always extend functionality of simple themes through using plugins or adding custom functions.

Choose faster‒and fewer‒plugins

As is the case with themes, you only need to use plugins that follow WordPress coding standards and offer regular updates and good support.

In terms of plugin quality, it’s worth it to mention that the amount of activated plugins you use is also important. It may seem rather basic, but the more plugins you have activated, the more server resources you are using and the slower your website will operate in the end, so it’s always important to limit the amount of plugins you use for your site. 

Avoid storing media files on WordPress

I’m sure you are aware that when you upload video onto a WP site, it is automatically displayed in a HTML5 player, but this may not be such a good idea.

Hosting audio and video files on your server will cost you bandwidth, as media files usually consume lots of bandwidth data, increasing your final invoice from the hosting company. These kinds of files also need more backup space, which means more hosting space. Plus, loading such files usually slows down your website. A good alternative is to try to host audio or video files on sites like Youtube, Vimeo or SoundCloud and use the Embed function to display them on your site.

Managing your Cache

WordPress cache is a feature that stores data in temporary memory on the server in order to decrease the loading time of the content of your site. When it comes to large-scale websites, your web server may often struggle to deliver service to all users. This is where the caching feature works best; by preparing data for the users, a caching plugin will speed up your site between 2.5X to 5X.

A good caching solution is a must-have for your website, no matter whether it’s a large-scale project or a small blog site. There are a lot of good caching plugins available in the market, both free or premium options. They are easy to configure and you will notice a major improvement from the first activation. The most popular plugins for cachings are:

Also, many companies like Bluehost, Siteground, Cloudways and others have developed caching plugins specifically optimized for their server environment.

Database optimization

Large-scale websites store and collect lots of Information in their database. Apart from important data, there is temporary data (logs, revisions, spam comments, trash, etc.) that is not necessary to store for extended periods and will regularly be cleared. A poorly optimized database becomes slow and unwieldy in size, which will accordingly increase the back-up size of your project.

Default and native database optimization can be done via PhpMyadmin by selecting all your tables and choosing “Optimize Table” from the dropdown list. This action will recreate selected tables and remove any excess local data utilized by that table.

There are other, more user-friendly methods to optimize your database utilizing WordPress plugins such as:

Security

Last but not least, security is one of the most important points for any large-scale website. Is WordPress secure? The answer to this question depends on you. If you use the right techniques to secure your WordPress website, then it will be secure. 

The WordPress core is very secure, as it’s reviewed regularly by hundreds of industry professionals and developers. However, there are still many factors that can negatively impact site security, such as outdated server software, poor server administration, outdated core, plugins and themes. Let’s dive into the key points on how to keep your site as secure as possible. Please note that it’s impossible to cover every security consideration in one article.

Keeping WordPress Updated

Notice that we’ve mentioned this point twice? Every update of the WordPress core brings new features and fixes bugs, but it also implements best practices for coding standards. It goes without saying that using the most updated software for your project is a must.

Passwords and User Permission

Stolen passwords and low user permission are the most common WP security flaws. For large scale projects, having a long and secure password is not up for discussion‒always use a strong password generator to create secure and unhackable passwords. This applies not only to the WordPress dashboard but to anything at all, from hosting accounts and database access to FTP details, custom email addresses and more. 

WordPress backup

Be ready for any situation with a solid plan B. Are you performing an important update? Create a backup beforehand. Are you installing an important plugin? Create a backup. Cleaning out your database? Create a backup. Are your files infected with a virus? Restoring the working version is the easiest and quickest solution. A good back-up plugin can save a ton of time and won’t affect visitor experience. .

WordPress security plugin

This kind of plugin is a must-have tool that can save your site from various attacks, and improves the overall security of your site, some of these plugins will have a firewall as well. Don’t work without this plugin.

Web application firewall (WAF)

WAFs block suspicious traffic and malicious software before it reaches your site. Consider using the web application firewall offered by Sucuri.

Use secure protocol SSL/HTTPS

These are encrypted data transfer protocols between your web site and the end user. This encryption makes it harder to mine your data or steal information. Nowadays, many hosting companies offer free SSL certificates in their hosting plans.

Limit Login Attempts

This is an easy and smart way to prevent hackers from accessing your WordPress dashboard. This method blocks potential hackers after several unsuccessful attempts. Login LockDown plugin is one of many free plugins for this purpose.

Two-Factor Authentication

This provides an extra layer of security by restricting access to the dashboard to those who are registered by the admin. Users who are not registered can only access the dashboard via their mobile phone or via extra security steps. Two Factor Authentication can be used for this security feature.

This list could go on for much longer, as security is a never ending process. To keep your site as secure as possible, do your best to stay up to date on the best practices for WordPress security.

Conclusion

I hope that, now that you’ve reached the end of the article, the issue of scalability is much clearer than before. You can scale your site as you see fit. While there are no real limits, you should adhere to best practices of large-scale WordPress site management whenever possible. The same goes for smaller blogs; use the best practices to provide the site experience you strive for. So, let’s recap the five best practices we discussed in this article:

  • Choose the right hosting method 
  • Maintain performance and optimization
  • Manage your cache with best practices
  • Prioritize database optimization and management
  • Secure your setup

There are many other things that should be considered when you manage large-scale WordPress sites. Website monitoring tools are a good example of a topic we did not cover in this article. Make sure any extra tools and instruments you opt for are already included in your hosting plan, as they will greatly improve the management of the whole project.

Understanding WordPress Link Previews

WordPress Link Previews featured

The term “link preview” is pretty self-explanatory. When you share a link via a social media post or via channels like Slack, the automatically generated preview will show key bits of information about the link destination. This information usually includes a title, caption or description, and an image. However, each social media site collects this information differently from the destination site, so the final preview for the same link can differ between social media sites.

It’s important to recognize that link previews are the first line of interaction between your WordPress site and potential customers. In this blog post, we’ll walk you through some simple steps to optimize your WordPress link previews for popular sites like Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.

The Open Graph Protocol

Link previews are superior to plain URLs for a number of reasons: they present valuable contextual information about the site by adding an image, title and description. They also draw in web traffic by making the link more clickable.

The Open Graph protocol refers to the practice of describing a website by identifying its rich objects (such as images or audio files). Built by Facebook for social networks, OGP uses <meta> tags to achieve this. These tags help social media sites decide what key information to pull when generating link previews for your site. The most common meta tags include:

og:title: the title of your content.

og:type: the type of content, such as a video or web page.

og:image: the URL of the image used to represent your content.

og:url: the unique URL of your content that will be used as its permanent ID.

og:description: the description that summarizes your image.
Check out the following example from the official site. This chunk of code describes the movie “The Rock” on IMDB’s website:

If you look at the <meta> tags, you can see  that the website’s title is “The Rock”. The HTML also includes an image link and a URL leading to the same website.

OGP was initially designed specifically for Facebook, but many other web services now support it. Linkedin, Twitter and Pinterest are all social networks currently supporting  OGP.

It’s important to realize that OGP can also affect your SEO. That being said, there are plenty of reasons to care about link previews: they are a key tool for making sites more accessible by giving potential customers and subscribers a summary of a site’s content. 

Link preview editing in WordPress

You can edit your link previews via your WordPress website. To change key elements of your link previews, from featured image to text description, you don’t need to write a single line of code–you just need a plugin! The Yoast SEO plugin is a great option, as it allows you to preview what your text will look like.

This Yoast SEO article gives a detailed description of how to edit link previews.

Here are the steps for setting a general image when there isn’t one for your post or page: :

  • Go to SEO > Social in your WordPress backend
  • From there you can add all your social URLs for Google to track.
  • Next, you need to go to the Facebook tab, where you will be able to upload a default image for sharing your website on Facebook.
  • Save your settings.

Let’s say you’ve added a new image, but the old one still shows up when you share your link via social media. Most social media sites, Facebook and Twitter included, cache link information for several days so that they don’t have to download new information everytime you add a link. This cached information is refreshed every few days automatically. Fortunately, there are tools that allow you to refresh your link immediately!

Best practices for nice link previews

When you share content via social media, it’s important to recognize that not all platforms are created equal. For Facebook link previews, it’s vital to optimize image size by

 Using images that are “at least 1080 pixels in width ensures the best display on high res devices” (Facebook for Developers). For the best looking Facebook link preview, your page images should be 600 x 600 pixels minimum.

Photo posts generate more likes and comments than text-based posts, so optimizing Facebook previews is very important for generating engagement. Taking the time to code your URLs helps to boost engagement and potential traffic  anytime someone shares your links on Facebook.

Facebook Link Debugger

Facebook Debugger is a helpful tool for refreshing posted links. It even allows you to see what information Facebook is collecting from each page on your site. After updating the featured image for a specific post or page, copy and paste your URL into the Repost Debugger search field and click on the “Debugging” button.

You’ll then be able to see all the information that Facebook collected from that page when it last scraped your page. If the updated image and preview text are not displaying, simply click the “Repeat Scraping” button once or twice to giveFacebook a chance to gather the new information.

The next time you share that URL on Facebook, the refreshed preview should display updated information..

LinkedIn Post Inspector

LinkedIn also has a tendency to show old data in a link preview. To fix this issue, you can use LinkedIn’s custom debugger, Post Inspector. Just like the Facebook Link Debugger, this tool refreshes the link preview. To use it, just paste your URL in the Post Inspector and click “Inspect”.

LinkedIn Debugger also tells you when the link was last scraped and includes other information about the URL and metadata gathered from the shared page.

WordPress Link Previews - post inspector

Twitter Cards Validator

Twitter supports link previews in a different way than either LinkedIn or Facebook. 

Twitter’s version of a link preview is called a Twitter Card. Only sites that have Twitter Card information available will display a preview when shared via Twitter.
However, you can also check your link preview on Twitter. Their debugger tool is called Cards Validator, which will show you how a link will look when you post it on your Twitter feed. Just need to fill in the URL and click on “Preview Card” to see it.

WordPress Link Previews - twitter card validator

To see the information Twitter has collected from that specific link, check the “Log” section. A “WARN” message in the Log section will also tell you if anything is wrong.

Common Questions

What do you do if a post that’s already been published to your Facebook Page is missing an image?

Sometimes the featured image will appear correctly in the link preview but doesn’t display later in your News Feed. Unfortunately, Facebook still has not developed a clear solution for this issue..

Instead, you’ll have to force Facebook to clear the cache usingFacebook Debugger (as described above), then perform the following steps: 

  • Go to Publishing Tools on your Facebook Page;
  • Under Published Posts, find your post and click on it;
  • Hit Refresh share attachment;
  • A pop-up window will open – if the new information is correct, click Save.

More common questions and their answers can be found on Facebook’s FAQ page.

Wrapping Up

We interact with and use link preview every day, but chances are you haven’t given them much thought. Fixing a link preview that’s showing old info may seem like a hassle, but thanks to powerful debuggers from social media sites like Twitter and Facebook, you can refresh cached data faster and post links with correct previews. Now that you know how to use Facebook Debugger, Twitter Card Validator and LinkedIn Post Inspector, you can start using WordPress link previews even more effectively than before.

Top 5 Places to Store Jupiter X Form Submissions

store Jupiter X form submissions featured

One of the questions that always pops into my head when I want to make a form for a client is “Where should I store the data?” The answer to this question really depends on what the client needs. Sometimes, sending a copy of the data entry to a specific email is enough. However, there are other options that make it easier for them to access the data entries. There are plenty of form plugins available for your WordPress website, and each one has its own way to store data entries. In this article, however, I’m going to discuss 5 places you can use to store Jupiter X form submissions. 

For more information about Jupiter X Forms, please follow this link. For the purposes of this post, I assume that you already have a form like the one pictured below and that you have added your desired design customizations and fields.

Jupiter X Forms

To get started, add an action to the form and configure the action settings. The action will be triggered when the user clicks on the Submit button. Actions are beyond the scope of what I’m going to cover here, but you should be aware that knowing how to use them opens up almost unlimited possibilities. Let’s see how we can store our form entries based on the available actions. 

Email

The simplest way to store form submissions is via email. Just add an Email action to Form Settings -> Add Action and configure your email settings.

Adding the Email action to a form

Once you add the Email action, the email settings section will appear below the settings section. Configure it and save the form. You can also set it to send a copy of the form to the person who submitted it by enabling the “Confirmation” option.

Configuring the Email action on a Jupiter X form

Now you will be able to use your form and submit entries. If you click on the Send button, you should see a green message confirming that the form was sent successfully .

The form was sent successfully.

You should then be able to see an email in your inbox that has all the form fields listed, plus some additional information such as date, time and page url.

Form entry results stored in a mailbox

Email is a good place to store form entries. It is secure, has search and archive capabilities, can filter out the incoming messages, and includes lots of features that can help you organize your form entries. These advantages make email the number 1 option for storing any form entry. 

Slack

Slack is one of the most popular team communication platforms out there. It comes with the ability to create a channel and store data on it. 

In order to add Slack integration to your form for data storage, simply add the Slack action to it.

Adding Slack integration to Jupiter X Forms

Right after adding the Slack option, you will see Slack settings appear below it. Open the link in the help tip to add the Slack integration app to your Slack account.

Open the Slack integration app settings

Add a username to your Slack integration on the resulting page and set the channel or person you want to send the form entry to.

Customizing the Slack integration app with Jupiter X forms

Then, save the settings, copy the Webhook URL and paste it to your form’s Slack integration field.

Setting up Slack integration

Enabling the Form Data option allows you to attach form fields to the message. Remember that, in order to organize multiple form entries in Slack, you can add a Pretext field to each of them and then use a hashtag or text to distinguish each form. You will receive a message like this on the channel you assigned the integration to:

Jupiter X Form entry on Slack

This is also a good way to get notifications when you need to act immediately after a form has been submitted. Please note that you can use multiple actions on your form. This means that you can combine Email and Slack integration with all other actions simultaneously. 

MailChimp

You may know of MailChimp as an emailing platform. While it’s primarily a mail and newsletter platform, it also has some key marketing features that will make your life easier when you want to collect information on a project or marketing campaign. Typically, you can create a campaign, add a couple of forms and place them on your website pages using the form-embed code. However, you are limited to the MailChimp form design. What if you want to do more than this? MailChimp offers its own API that allows you to integrate with different forms. We are lucky to already have MailChimp integration as part of Jupiter X Forms, so, with just a few clicks you can store your form entries in MailChimp as well. 

In order to add integration to your MailChimp account and store your form submissions, simply add the MailChimp action to your form.

Adding the MailChimp action to a Jupiter X Form

Once you’ve added the MailChimp action, MailChimp settings will appear below it.

MailChimp API key is required for integration

You will need an API key to integrate the form with your MailChimp. In order to get the API key, login to your Mailchimp account and navigate to Account -> Extras -> API Keys. Then, either create a new API key or use one of your old API keys if you already have some.

Adding a new API key to MailChimp

Copy the API key and paste it into the MailChimp API key field in your Jupiter X Form. It should then show the audiences and forms that you already have in your MailChimp account. 

Configure it to make sure the form submissions will be sent and store them within this list.

The good thing about storing data in MailChimp is that you can simply hand it to your marketing team and let them convert form submitters into real customers with the tools available for email marketing. 

Growmatik

Growmatik is a new marketing platform that combines all other marketing tools and services into one integrated solution. It allows you to segment your audiences, show popups, send customized emails and personalize websites for different users. Plus, it boasts many other useful features to measure the growth of your website, generate leads and convert them into paying customers.

All done! Save your page and submit a form entry to see the result. All form entries in Growmatik will be considered new “contacts” that you can turn into paying customers. In order to see the form entry, navigate to the “People” section. 

To filter through the results, click on the “Add Filter” button and choose Subscriptions -> Form. Choose the form you named in Jupiter X Forms to see the filtered results.

Filtering the results to show only form entries in the People section

You can see the results here. Now, save your segment, go to the automation section and convert these users into paying customers by sending marketing emails and showing them personalized content and products. 

Google Sheets

There is a way to integrate your forms with Google Sheets and store the data on it without writing a single line of code. Jupiter X Forms is capable of triggering a web hook and sending the data entries to that hook using the POST method. This gives you a great chance to integrate it with any other web service out there. 
Zapier is a service that acts as a hub for other services. It works like this: you first add a web hook from Zapier to the Webhook section of your form. Ten, as soon as someone submits the form, it will trigger Zapier. Whatever integration you made with Zapier will then operate. One of the possible integrations is Google Sheets, meaning that you can store your data on Google Sheets as well.

Adding a webhook action to Jupiter X Form

Log in to your Zapier account and make a new ZAP.

After that, search for Webhooks by Zapier. Add the ZAP and trigger the event with “Catch Hook”.

store Jupiter X form submissions

Continue to set up the trigger.

Copy the Custom Hook URL and paste it into the WebHook field of your Jupiter X form.

Update the page and return to the Zapier tab. Now you should test the web hook. Click on Test Trigger, submit a post entry on your website and click on Test the Trigger to ensure you receive the data.

Then, add an action to your web hook. Find the Google Sheets option and click on it.

store Jupiter X form submissions

Since we want to add a new row to the sheet with each form submission, click on “Create Spreadsheet Row” in the action event field.

Now you’ll need to sign into the Google account you’ll use to select your sheet. Grant access to Zapier to read and write data on your Google Drive.

Next, you’ll need to map the fields of your sheet with data entry fields. Then, click Continue.

Now test your action and turn on your ZAP.
