19 Sep 7 Signs Your Website Is Due For An Upgrade or Redesign
Let’s face it, everybody could be generating more business from their website.
However, some websites could be generating much more due to being severely outdated…
Do you or your website suffer from any of the following?
1. You’re Embarrassed to Give Out your Website URL
Are you ashamed of what your current website looks like or do you hope that new prospects aren’t savvy enough to find your website online so they can’t see the state it is in?
2. Not Using SSL
This is a simple one, SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is a protocol used to securely transmit data over the internet. Now mandatory by law for any website which accepts payments, SSL is the green padlock you see in the URL bar in your browser.
Websites without SSL automatically are penalized by google and as a result they don’t show as high on google for your terms which you are ranking for.
3. Your Site is Not Mobile Friendly or Responsive
Similar to the SSL, Google is now penalizing websites which aren’t responsive (mobile/tablet friendly) due to their lower quality of user experience.
New websites nowadays have this as a standard however there are still a lot of older websites running desktop only versions.
4. Your Competitors all have newer websites
Take a quick glance at your competitors websites, either on Google or by directly knowing their names based on your experience.
How do their websites compare to yours? Are you satisfied with how your website looks if you stack it side by side against your competitors?
