What Does "Website Maintenance" Really Mean? Confused about website maintenance what includes, and what it does not include? Here are 5 important points to consider. You see it advertised all over the Internet, but what does "website maintenance" really mean? Are these services really worth the money? Absolutely! But only if you hire the right company. When you go looking for the right website maintenance services, you'll discover what their experts can, and cannot do: - Design your website Sorry. Web design is a whole different field from website maintenance. While most web maintenance firms can do web design, it will be at a higher cost than just average maintenance services. Website design does not fall under "website maintenance". - Update your blog For many webmasters, creating and updating a blog is more of a pain than anything else. Luckily, though, this type of work is what website maintenance services were originally created for! If you're dealing with a professional company, adding your blog updates is easy. That way, you'll have an easy way to keep your visitors up-to-date on all of the latest developments in your industry. Plus, the search engines love fresh content! Most website maintenance firms will add your content to your blog. Some firms will write the blog posts for you, for an extra charge. - Evaluate your website If your website has been up for ages -- and has gone through a number of technical changes and webmaster changes -- it could be a real mess. For all you know, you may have a bunch of broken links or other issues that are chasing visitors, and search engines, away! Since you don't have the time (or the expertise) to go through everything yourself, leave the job to a website maintenance team. A good company will be able to come in and assess what needs to be fixed and what doesn't. - Clean up the damage Have you fallen victim to a hacker? Until you get everything taken care of, your online business is on hold! Luckily, the right website maintenance services can get you back to normal quickly. You don't even need something as serious as a hacker to create a ton of damage that needs to be cleaned up. Even a less-than-savvy webmaster can open your website up to a slew of problems that need to be addressed and corrected. - Offer advice True website maintenance professionals will understand the way the Internet works -- and not just from a technical perspective. They'll also have enough online expertise to give you SEO and other marketing advice.
