WEB MAINTENANCE & SEO
KEEPING UP WITH YOUR WEBSITE
A website is an ongoing investment, not a one time purchase. To forgo upkeep of your website is the equivalent to burning money. Web maintenance involves routine tests and updates to make sure all facets of your site are working like a well oiled machine. Updates are being pushed constantly for web platforms, plugins, and services, and there comes a point where failure to upgrade means website failure. Keeping your site updated and tested regularly gives you confidence that your website is presenting across platforms just as you expect.
Search engine optimization, more commonly referred to as SEO, is the many practices that make a website appealing to the search engines people use to find things online. SEO can often overlap with best practice site maintenance, something that’s required if you want your site to withstand the test of time.
If you’re looking to have the best site you can possibly have, SEO is a must. At a basic level, this involves managing your metadata, setting your focus words, and submitting your site for indexing. Going deeper, SEO will ask you to decrease site load times and streamline your mobile experience. Outside of your site itself, SEO means tracking traffic and analyzing data to learn about your user base and make changes accordingly to better direct your user flow.

Updates and upkeep
The moment a site is created, a clock is ticking down to when it will become obsolete. This is simply the inherent nature of the online environment, always evolving and improving. If your site isn’t doing the same, it’s a simple fact that your site will lose touch and it will be palpable to anyone that frequently gets online.
