Like many things in life, websites have a ‘best before’ date. This doesn’t mean your website will no longer work, but with advances in technology, changes in your requirements and updates to search algorithms, how your website performs and its ability to achieve the objective it was designed for could be negatively impacted.
Businesses are always changing and your website should reflect this - it is therefore useful to view your website as a work in progress - something that can should adapt to your business. Regularly reviewing your website's design and functionality will help to ensure you it is performing optimally.

Trends are constantly changing and technology improving, so it’s good to have a website revamp regularly. On top of this, it’s important that your website design is mobile friendly as about 50% of website traffic comes from these devices.
Search Engine Optimisation ensures your website shows up for the relevant searches. While your content might be great, if it’s the same as it was 3 years ago, then Google won’t agree. Having the right keywords in the right places and links to other sites are all essential to improving your SEO.
It’s important to know who is coming to your site and how they behave when they get there. This data will give you an insight into your consumers’ behaviour that will help you to enhance customer experience.
