Update your website today!

When it comes to representing your business online, these four things are critical:
  • Expertise
  • Authority
  • Trust
  • Maintenance
Not only are these what the potential customers visiting your website are judging you on they are also important aspects that help determine your website’s ranking on search engines, such as Google.

To show you have expertise in your area you need to include detailed content around each service or product you provide, if this content is good enough it will then be referenced and shared by other people, establishing you are an authority on the topic.
To demonstrate trust, you need to publish examples of your successful projects, client testimonials and reviews, and make your privacy and security statements clear.

Google looks for, on-topic content, added over a period of time. In other words, people writing about the same topic, multiple times, over an extended timeframe. The basic premise of any search engine is to supply relevant, recent, content to the person looking for the information. Adding fresh content regularly means your website will be the most recent, relevant response to the search query.
