We lost traffic on a site recently and after digging for reasons, found a change in Google AND Bing WebmasterTools related to site indexing. (blocked a bunch of urls) In this case, I think it was the updating of a plugin, which caused (unknown) changes to the robots.txt, which resulted in a large number of files being put into the index, then excluded in robots.txt. Either way... not good.

The site has been on autopilot for so long, I had not thought about checking robots.txt or the sitemap.xml until the traffic fluctuation.

Anyhow - I am trying to find a plugin that will track 100% of EVERY change that occurs on a self-hosted WordPress system, any ideas?

Ideally, it will track:

- Plugin updates (date, versions etc)
- Post / Page updates (date, who)
- Settings Changes (date, what changed, etc)
- Theme edits (date, etc)
- etc...

Even if I just have something that forces me to record changes or why I logged into the admin today, it will help.

I have seen other plugins that track user activities, but not sure if it would do the stuff I feel I need.
