WordPress security tests

These tests will help you find out if your website is GDPR compliant.

The Hacker Target test performs a passive scan to see what can be easily detected. If you see the version number, plugins or theme listed, your User IDs (login names) and/or accessible directories, you should consider securing your website.

To help you I have put together a guide on How to interpret your Hacker target results, and what to look out for. These tests form a large part of ensuring GDPR compliance.

Please bear in mind that an SSL certificate on its own is no indication of how secure your website is. The above tests will help you discover any obvious security issues.

WordPress Performance tests

Faster websites attract more visitors and convert more customers.

GTMetrix uses multiple criteria to score your website. It provides an excellent overview of performance. For more accurate results sign-up, it is free, and set the location closest to you. I use London in my tests for UK sites.

My excellent GTMetrix results have been achieved by using one of the most popular WordPress themes and hosting platforms. It would be quite possible to improve on load speed, which averages out at around 2 seconds. However, in doing so I would not be able to provide you with a fair illustration of what is potentially achievable with your own website at a realistic cost.
