Website Upgrade and Maintenance
There are millions upon millions of websites on the world-wide-web – of which a large percentage of them are outdated. Usually, it’s recommended that you change your website’s look and feel every 3 years; but our busy lives tend to get in the way and before you know it, your website is 8 years old and in need of an overall upgrade
Reasons for website upgrade and maintenance :
- Search Engines
If you want your website to be seen on the first page of Google, you’re going to have to up the ante on your content as well as the overall look and feel of your website
- Great for Impressions
First impressions always count, but you also want your website to have a lasting impression on your visitors so that they keep coming back. Besides the fact that visitors to your site won’t be put off by a slow and very outdated website with pixelated images, redesigning the look and feel of your website will also make your business look more professional
- Security Vulnerabilities
First and foremost, updates keep you safe from known security holes. This is especially important when there is a new release available for software you use because most change logs and update notes reveal previously-known exploits that have already been patched.
It’s a natural expectation among today’s populace that your business should have some kind of web presence. After all, what would be your initial reaction to someone telling you about some new business or product? You’d probably Google it.
And we know now that the static, brochure-style website of yesteryear isn’t going to cut it. A current, interactive presence for your company is needed online, not just for transactions or for high-tier networking, but also for greater visibility for searchers in general. Did we also mention that a fresh website gets a better SEO boost than an older one? Websites that have undergone Search Engine Optimization stand a better chance at getting found by the people who need you.
