Geekbench is easy, not too much resource extensive, so you could run it even in live production server, which everything keep working as it is. But I would suggest you run those operation in your low hour.
Here is very simple guide to run Geekbench in your Linux server.

split() is a very common PHP function. Here I am not going to discuss its usage. But I will give a super simple solution for the error “Deprecated: Function split() is deprecated“. This error is annoying, and will happen to everyone using
split() function. So, keep reading for the super easy solution.
Why We Are Getting This Error Suddenly?
preg_split(), which uses a Perl-compatible regular expression syntax, is often a faster alternative to split(). If you don’t require the power of regular expressions, it is faster to use explode(), which doesn’t incur the overhead of the regular expression engine.

I was reading an article by Julie R. Neidlinger on WPDaily about Scribe SEO Plugin. First of all, thanks to Julie, for an honest review. I think if you need to spend that amount of time and money for SEO, it’s better to hire expert. It’s not for normal blogger or site owner. Market research guys could get benefit from it. But not average to even mid user.
Though I always advice that writer needs to learn how to write SEO friendly article. SEO should be blend in writing, not entirely focusing to get rank better in Search, but focusing more on making sense, help people in finding content, understand content and overall to help reader.
