My ManageWP Review
ManageWP is one of the oldest and largest services to manage multiple WordPress blogs on the market. It allows you to add any number of websites to manage them from a single dashboard and save a lot of time you would spend on your day to day WP management tasks by automating them or processing them in bulk. The service was launched in early 2012 after a long beta phase that already started in 2010. All its members combined use ManageWP to manage over 200,000 WordPress weblogs remotely according to its creators.
A look at the ManageWP dashboard from where you can manage all your WordPress blogs together.
There is a core set of features that is part of all WP management services compared here: They all let you add all your website to a single account, update plugins and themes easily, quickly login to your sites and create backups. What is different is how they implement those basic features in their interface and how easy to use their management dashboard (pictured above for ManageWP) is.
ManageWP is the only reviewed product which has included advanced SEO features into the software. Those features allow you to track keyword rankings for your website in Google and give you a regular SEO report with details about backlinks and other metrics. While the SEO features in ManageWP can not match what any professional SEO suite such as Raven Tools has to offer it can certainly be interesting for people looking for an all-in-one solution getting WordPress management and basic SEO tracking in the same package.
As the de-facto industry leader ManageWP does have a larger support team than most of the alternatives and they boast with a response time to support requests below an hour. This also makes them well suited for enterprise customers and large organizations for which they offer custom tailored plans as well as a self-hosted version of their dashboard.
ManageWP is undoubtedly the pioneer of the WordPress management services, being developed by a professional team, offering good support and boasting a large number of features, including unique SEO and rank tracking tools. But all this comes at a high cost: Their tiered pricing model make ManageWP the most expensive service in the comparisons and some of the alternatives are not far behind in functionality.
ManageWP has a free account option for managing up to 5 blogs. The price of premium subscriptions depends on the number of weblogs you want to manage as well as the features you want to have access to and can be paid monthly or yearly at a discount. A plan for 5 sites at the ‘Basic’ level is $4 per month while ‘Professional’ costs $12 and the ‘Business’ level $24. (Update: ManageWP have recently changed their pricing to be per domain instead of per site. This is especially great for people using WordPress multisite, hosting blogs on subdomains or using staging environments – all of which won’t count towards your account limit anymore.)
