If you cant fix it then what?

Last Update: September 12, 2021

Maybe you`ve had the problem before, something has broken on your website that no matter what you do, you just don`t see a way out.

I`ve been there many times before, but the last one was the worst, when nothing worked, when a 1000+ word appeared as a single paragraph because of some plugins I used. It got so bad my posts were mostly on page 7+ and traffic trickled down to almost zero.

If You can`t fix it, look for help

It may sound easy, I`m sure some of you have asked for help and got some generic or negative answers, I`ve been there, don`t give up.

When my site got seriously messed up, I seriously thought of giving up, it looked so hopeless but there was a problem, how do I give up and abandon 3 sites that I`ve spent time building up?. I knew for a fact the problems were beyond me, several support tickets did not help Either because of issues from my side.

In comes Labman, Craig told me to contact a member here and it`s one of the good things I`ve done in a long time( working online wise). The member removed the bad codes, cleaned up everything, and now things are looking up again. And, did I say he designed my site like I always wanted it to look?

Starting To Rank Again

It`s just been weeks since the work was done but I`m starting to see my formerly high ranked posts crawl slowly back up.It might be a long wait to get everything where it was, but checking Google Search Console for the last 7 days, the posts are improving again. Although my site average position is still 60 according to GSC( yes it got that bad) I`m sure if things keep going the way they are, that will change very soon.

Don`t go it alone, if you can`t fix it, look for help

If it`s not for the help I got from a dedicated member here, I`m almost convinced I`d have abandoned the sites sooner or later, but thanks to him, I now have a site I`m proud of and even working on improving old posts.

Work hard but remember there are things you can`t fix on your own, don`t be afraid to ask, you may not always get the help you need but if you ask hard enough, long enough( I asked for months until I found the right person for what I needed doing).

There's always a way to fix something that was created in this digital era friend. Most people don't realized that just because something doesn't work, doesn't mean it can't be fixed. If someone knows a lot about computer coding, the mistake can be fixed right away. But most of us are not coders. So there are steps to take to resolve the problem if it doesn't work. I'm with you when you've stated to "look for help". Your example shows. All the best!

Fixing sounds easy if you have the know how, but if you have two left hands, then it`s not as easy.

Congratulation for sticking in there.
I am sure this has taken a toll, but hopefully, by your shares, we can be more careful of plug-ins. I know I will, sorry for your frustration and extra work, but thanks for the share and warning.

Thanks, it`s funny, it`s so hard to stay away from the plugins all together.But, lesson learned the hard way.
