Is your website outdated?

Your website is outdated if
Loading times are slow
When visiting a website it should take no more than 2 seconds to load. There is a number of reasons why your website could be slow:
- Images on your website are not optimized
- Old plugins running on the backend have not been updated.
- Website is not developed for smart devices
- Poor hosting services
- Website may have been hacked.
Not developed for smart devices
All websites now need to be responsive for smart devices. If your text is cut off by a picture or you can’t find the About us link on your Iphone , then your website needs to be redeveloped. You will lose potential customers and Google will demote sites which are not mobile friendly.
Old web hosting technology
Recently we redeveloped a website for a client in which their previous web hosting company was using outdated server software. This caused numerous issues such as navigating file locations, and uploading the new website which was not made for today’s technology.
Content is not up to date
If you still have content dated back to 2017 users will not spend any time on your website. Also, Google ranks sites higher if you keep adding new content.
If you keep adding updates to your social sites like Facebook and LinkedIn you should do the same with your website.
Hard coded - no CMS
If your website doesn’t use a Content Managment System then you’re missing out. We recommend WordPress as –
- Its user friendly
- Updating websites with new content only takes seconds.
- Thousands of plugins to take your website to the next level of user experience.
