Why do Websites need Maintenance?

Is your website checked regularly for issues & mistakes? Is it kept upto date?

Just like your car, your website can fail if it’s not maintained. Without a regular check up for issues & mistakes, the health of your website can fail and security gets breached. Then your website could be offline for weeks, which is costly to fix and if it’s not been backed-up, you may lose all your site data or even the whole website.

You can do it yourself. But have you technical know how and the time to do it regularly? WordPress and plugin updates are released at random times through the year, there can be a few days between each new release or sometimes months. The purpose of many of these updates is to increase security, by plugging holes in outdated software and plugins that threaten your sites security. So prevent hackers from taking control of your site.

With so much competition online, it is important to keep your website in tip top condition so that ‘robots’ that trawl throught every website can ‘see’ all your pages. Keep things upto date, the WordPress software, the plugins and your content. Search engines, such as Google, rank websites higher if they are kept upto date.

WEB MAINTENANCE SERVICES - WHAT YOU GET

Why is Website Maintenance Important?

For many businesses, they see getting their website live online is the end of work on the site. But in fact for a website to perform, this is only the start.

Maintaining a upto date, healthy, and active website is important. Here a few of the reasons why:

SEO

Search results for Google and other search engines aim to show the websites that have the most relevant and up-to date information. And if a website has no updates for a long period of time or is possibly insecure, it can be de-indexed.

The aim for any website is to be ranked in the search engines, which will drive traffic to your site for potential customers, clients and business.

Security

Websites built on WordPress or Wix must have the latest version of the software installed to stay secure. Unsecure websites whether small or large businesses, can easily become the target of hackers to take control of the domain and direct traffic to an unknown site.

Business Image

If a website looks professional and well designed, the business is seen as professional, no matter what size the business is. If your website gives a poor, out of date image, this is what potential new customers see as your business. Ensure there are no typos or display problems, and make sure the website stays looking great, informative and easy to use.

Be Informative

If your website is always kept upto date, so customers can find the information they need and feel confident in your business. If maintenance is neglected for a long period it is often easier to redesign a new site than try to ‘bring the site up to scratch’. A costly mistake.

Keep the Design Upto Date

A ‘good looking’ website gives customers confidence in the business. And if your site is maintained on a regular basis, it will periodically have newer and better features added to the design as part of the process. The design can be stay fresh and modern for the best impression.
