Ongoing Maintenance

Websites are not Static

They are dynamic, engaging, and up to date. Regular maintence keeps your website ranking up and your visitors returning.

Do you want to update your own site? I offer an "update your own site" tool that allows you to manage the content (text, pictures, videos, forms, etc) on your Web site.

I encourage all my clients to update their content on their sites regularily. Fresh, relevant content is what visitors seek when visiting a website.

Want a redesign? Have a site that does not work on phones and iPads?

It's the Little Things that Count

I provide a wide range of services for my clients, many of which go unnoticed so I decided to make a list of the many little things Web site maintenance includes.

  • Listing the site in Google and setting up a Google Webmaster account for the site. Monitor this account.
  • Listing the site in Bing and setting up a Bing Webmaster account for the site. Monitor this account.
  • Install analytics software and setup the core goals. The list of goals should focus first on the parts of your site that require input from visitors (ie forms), the core main five pages of the site (these vary but will include contact forms, home pages, search engines, etc).
  • Check for the location on Google Maps. Correct the marker, if necessary, and check that their Google Place is claimed. If not, followup with client to ensure the process completes.
  • Test the website on as many devices as possible. Test all screen widths.
  • Ask people to use the site and watch how they respond. Make a note of anything that was confusing and/or complicated.
  • Log all activity on your contact form and every other form on your site. Look for suspicious activity. Look for visitor problems that should be fixed.
  • If possible, watch the client interact with the site. Make notes.
  • Check the site's search engine placement on Google, Yahoo, Bing, and as many others as you can think of. Typically this occurs one month and three months after a launch. Create a baseline by making notes on placement. Look for ways to improve the ranking.
  • Request new content from client, if possible, on a regular basis.
  • Check the year in the copyright - always automate where possible.
  • Check backlinks to the site. Try to generate more. 
  • Monitor the keyword ranking for the site and each page within.
  • Create and maintain an XML sitemap on your server to guide the search engine spiders.

I love making Web sites and to date I have made 67 Web sites.
