Maintaining a website is a constant job. And a maintained website is easily discernible from one that is left to run on its own. Your website is your ‘face’ to all your viewers and just as you would wash your face and shave (or check your makeup depending on your gender!) before an important business meeting, you need to ensure that your web ‘face’ is presentable and attractive.
A website needs constant development in order to achieve success in search engine ranking. Continuous development will also help build a relevant audience and garner interest from prospective clients. People don’t want to see the same content week after week; you need to give them a reason to want to return often.
It is essential to try to create good quality inbound links, especially from authorative websites. This will give you a great boost in search engine rankings. A great way to get these links is by writing articles and submitting them to quality websites with a link back to yours. This really pays off with regard to search engines and with visitor flow as interested readers will most probably choose to take a quick glance at your website via your link….
Additionally a maintained website appears more trustworthy than a website replete with errors and broken links. And website without updated content may lead a reader to wonder whether the said business is still up and running.
Encourage visitor feedback and act upon it. Listen to the requests and suggestions of your visitors regarding website navigability. You can never create a site that is too user-friendly, the easier it is to navigate the happier your visitors will be. Adding interactive videos is a great way to engage and excite your visitors. Be sure to add new ones often to satiate the clientele that visit exclusively for the entertainment. You don’t want to appear stale.
A social media presence is a must. Your degree of involvement can vary and it is okay if you don’t update every millisecond. But as it is a powerful marketing tool it is important to update your followers occasionally! It’s also a great forum for feedback which is incredibly useful for website modifications.
These tips are all important in developing your website to create a web page that search engines and humans alike approve of. Though your development strategies may vary the goal is one and the same, to create a strong and positive web presence.
