SHOW YOUR WEBSITE SOME LOVE + IT WILL LOVE YOU BACK.

Your website works for you 24/7, which means it has the potential to bring you a lot of traffic and a lot more business! However, if you’re not keeping your site fresh and up-to-date, you may not be seeing the kind of results you were hoping for.

Search engines are focused on the user and so they reward websites that are updated regularly and continuously produce fresh, new content. They also love to see websites grow over time, as that indicates the business cares enough about their website visitors to make sure they have both relevant and valuable content.

Don’t spend money building a beautiful website, only to set it and forget it. If you want your site to really shine, you need to nurture it by giving it some love and attention!

Here are 5 things you should be doing on a consistent basis to maintain your website:

1. Keep your WordPress plugins and themes up-to-date

This keeps your site running smoothly, which also helps protect your site from hackers, who get in through outdated software. Hackers will actively seek out sites that haven’t upgraded to the most recent software as these are seen as easier targets.

2. Update and add new content

Build trust and strengthen relationships with your customers or clients by providing the latest and most up-to-date information on your website. Creating new blog posts can really help with this, especially since search engines love fresh content. In addition, changing the content on each page a little bit every couple of months shows Google that the website is still active and is being paid attention to. The more often you update your site, the more often the search engines will visit your site, therefore boosting your rankings and helping you get found organically in search results!

3. Have your images properly sized for the web to help decrease your page load time

If you’re creating new blog posts, you’re going to want to include images in them. But what you don’t want are huge images, as these can slow down the loading time of your site. Google wants to rank websites with a better user experience higher than others and loading time is an important factor. You don’t want to keep your visitors waiting. A page should ideally take one second to load; if it takes longer than 3 seconds, you’re most likely going to lose that visitor. Resizing your images to smaller sizes can really help with this!

4. Optimize your images using proper Alt. text and descriptions

Properly naming your image files and providing descriptive alt. tags helps Google recognize graphical content, which will improve your ranking and bring you additional visitors coming from Google image searches.

5. Have SEO formatted and optimized on every page and blog post

Search Engine Optimization is a technique used to help potential customers find your services, products, blog posts or business information online. Optimizing your content is an ongoing and sometimes complicated process, but it’s also a very powerful method for attracting leads and more business! For example, if you and your competitor have very similar information on each of your websites, but your website is configured with SEO and theirs is not, your site is much more likely to show up at the top of Google while theirs might not show up at all. You get the business leads and they don’t. Simple as that.
