you last updated site is when? How often should you?

Our customers often ask us how often they should update or redesign their website. The answer is not as straightforward as you think. So, to help people solve this problem, I came up with 10 definite signs that it’s time to update your website.

The following are 10 signs to determine, it is time to redesign the website or update the website;

you have to pay for the update

in today’s CMS (Content Management System) technology, in addition to the time or do not want to waste time, there is no reason to find your web page Design a company and pay by the hour to change simple things such as product prices, photos in galleries, adding recommendation letters or updating service information. You can update these things as easily as emailing, and we know how many things you do every day! If you can do it, but not because you don’t want or don’t have time, we get it, but if you don’t, because your webmaster won’t let you… it’s time to change.

Ask yourself-can you change your website yourself?

Your website doesn’t look good on smartphones.

We spend a lot of time on mobile phones these days. For most of the websites we manage, users browsing through smartphones account for more than half of the website traffic. Not only do you want to make sure that people have a good experience when they visit your website on their phones or tablets, you also want to do it because Google cares. They know how important a mobile/responsive (meaning it works on a smartphone or tablet) website is, and if your website does not, they will punish you. This does not mean that Google will blacklist you or not show your website in the results, but if it is between you and someone with a mobile website, and everything else is equal, they will appear first .

Try this-open your website on your phone. What does it look like?

Your website looks outdated or outdated.

This is a somewhat difficult detail, but you can know when a website looks like it was made on Apple IIe. It will be ultra-narrow, may have a dark background and bright fonts, there will be many flashing text and images, and maybe some toast opportunity will fly by. . you understood.

Do this-do a Google search for “modern website design”. Click on the picture and see some results. How does your website match?

Sales or potential customers are declining.

Hope you have a good way to track how many leads or orders you get from your website. If not, it is also a sign. If you can track it, and you see a downward trend in sales or leads, it’s time to find out the reason and make a change.

Ask yourself-are the sales and potential customers of my website as strong as in the past?

People do not stay too long

analysis of this program will show you how people interact with your website like Google. If you don’t have such a thing, we suggest you add it now and start observing these statistics… users, sessions, page views, website time and bounce rate. How many users come to your website. Sessions are the number of times they visit your site. Page views are the number of pages they view on your website. The bounce rate tells you how many people did not see more than one page when they came to your website. If you look at these numbers and see that they are moving in the wrong direction, then you know it’s time to do something new and effective. If you don’t look at these numbers, then go for it.

Do this-if you don’t have Google Analytics or similar settings now. If you do, check your statistics for the past two years month by month to see if they are getting worse or better.

Your company has changed.

This is very straightforward. If your marketing/graphic designer thinks that everything in your marketing needs blue now, and your website is red, then it’s time to update. In addition, if your website lists services you no longer provide, or does not list services you provide now, then it’s time to fix the problem.

Do this-compare your website with the brochure or flyer you did last time.

You contentment

if your site is not updated, it is very bad. People don’t want to see the same old information, nor does Google. If you want people to be interested in your website, then you need to keep your content fresh and up-to-date. If you can’t do it yourself, please see 1, and then let’s talk.

Ask yourself-when was the last time I added or updated information on my website?

People tell you it’s hard to see

if someone tells you that your site is difficult to see, they may feel that they are mean, but if you listened to a few times, then you should start listening. On the other hand, when was the last time someone complimented you on your website and told you it looked good?

Ask yourself-is my website ugly? Be honest with yourself now.

People can not find you on the Internet

if someone tells you they can not find you online, it may be a combination of the above points. Anyway, this is definitely a sign that you should consider updating your website.

Do this-Google your product or service and see if you show up.

Your website uses flash.

If you know what flash is, you might put it on your website. Fortunately, you don’t see it as often as before. If you have flash this is a huge indicator and your website needs to be updated! Flash is not loaded on all devices. People need to install or update Flash plugins, which is generally a bad idea. Ask yourself-are there a lot of animations on my website? If this is the case, is it done in flash?
