Why Neglected Websites Affect your Business

There are not many things in life that you can neglect, and not have it directly affect you.  A good recipe in the crock pot tastes great after sitting a few hours.  A retirement and savings account can pay a great dividend when you let it sit and mature. However, a website isn’t one of those things you can leave without it negatively affecting your business. If your website is an extension of your business, the public needs to know about what you are doing, how you are doing it, and why they want to use your services.  A neglected website can give the impression that your business as a whole is also being neglected, that you don’t care, or that your business is struggling in both customers, and cash. The public perception is important in a society that is dominated by online presence.  If you have a physical store, you want the public to know you’re in business by maintaining the building, putting up new sales, providing new services, and showing why you are different from your competition.  This is why stores like Walmart and Target have survived for so long.   No one wants to see an outdated storefront or ideas and technologies that have not changed with the times. Your website is one of the single most important marketing tools you will ever have.  Keeping it up to date has its advantages, too: Search Engine Presence Believe it or not, a well maintained website doesn’t hurt you in the search engines.  In fact, you stand to benefit from it.  The more your site is active, the more notoriety you get with the search engine robots.  Have you ever noticed any website that was last updated in 2008 in the top four or five pages in a search?  Doubtful.
