Updating your WordPress plugins takes your site offline temporarily – Time things accordingly.

When you open your WordPress dashboard and update your plugins, be aware that your site will be down for the time it takes to update the plugins. 

In most cases, this is only a few minutes at most. However, if you just spent money on Adwords, Facebook or other advertising, you could be losing out. Your users will see the following message

 

Briefly unavailable for scheduled maintenance. Check back in a minute.
