How does the ManageWP Security Scan work?

Orion has a sophisticated security scan in place. The security check scans the pages on your website and compares the code against the known malware knowledge base. It also performs a blacklist check with a number of services, like Google Safe Browsing, Norton Safe Web, ESET, etc. It is flagging certain site errors, outdated software and vulnerability issues as well.

Security scan has one more great feature. If your site has debug.log present in wp-content folder or if the scan detects that WP_DEBUG is set to TRUE in your wp-config.php file, the results will show that the website is insecure.

Does the ManageWP Security Scan clean my website as well?

If by any chance your website has been infected you will get a detailed report and a list of all the infected files. We do not offer cleaning services, it’s down to you to clean your website. You can always use a clean backup to get your website up and running again or attack the malware head on by hiring a professional to do the cleaning for you.

Can I schedule a Security Check?

You are able to schedule your Security checks and always track if your websites are secure. You can find more details about this feature here.

Is there a way to request security checks on multiple sites at once?

As an added feature on our existing Security Scan, we are planning in the near future to create the possibility to schedule your scans and receive automated reports of those scans.

How is the SEO – Competitor Visibility Score being calculated?

Competitors visibility score can go from 0, if the competitor is not ranked for the keyword you entered, to a 100, if a competitor is ranked first on Google for the keyword you entered. Please note that it is important to remember to consider the region of the keyword that you wish to rank for. The rank depends on the tracking region of the keyword.
On each individual website you are allowed to add up to a 100 keywords, although the recommended number is no higher than 20.

This is how the competitor visibility score is calculated. On a single website, if a competitor score is 60 for the primary keyword, and 50 on the second, the overall result for this competitor will be 55.

How do you detect my SEO competitors?

For some website to be your competitor, it needs to have at least 60% of your ranking, meaning that you need to have at least 60% of the keywords, found at some of your competitors. (excluded google, yahoo, youtube, etc.)
