Top-Ten Reasons You Need Website Maintenance Services

website maintenance servicesThere is nothing worse than having a website with a bunch of out of date information on it.  Not only will you be penalized by Google in search results, but occasionally – potential customers DO stumble across your old page and that doesn’t make a very good first impression.  Finding a source for website maintenance services will help ensure you don’t suffer from website embarrassment.  Below we’ve created a list of top-ten reasons you need website maintenance services.  Yes they are humorous, but the sad thing is – for a lot of people, they are true!

  1. Your website footer says “Copyright 2002”.
  2. Three out of five people on your staff page don’t work for you anymore.
  3. Your “latest news” is about the company picnic 3 years ago.
  4. Your about page is is a few years behind about the age of your business.
  5. Your contact email goes to someone who left several years ago.
  6. Your site talks about products that no longer exist.
  7. Your site has animated graphics on it.  Anywhere…
  8. You still use a “splash page”
  9. Your company’s phone number is no where on your website.
  10. No matter how hard you try, you can’t seem to make your site come up in a Google search!

Yes, some of these are funny, but ask yourself if any of these apply to your OWN website.  It is likely that some of them do!  Trying to handle your own website maintenance is like trying to fix your own car.  Sure, some people are equipped to do it, but for most of us – we are better off leaving it to the professionals.  After all – the success of your website AND your business rides heavily on your website being a valuable source of information.  Don’t let it slip by the wayside.

    I loved your top 10 list and just emailed it to my boss. Our website is also a digital ghost town at the moment. My boss doesn’t even know the domain login or password. We’re thinking about using someone like Premier Global or SetMySite for website maintenance. Do you have any thoughts or additional suggestions?
