Website & PC Health Tips

A Site That’s Not Updated Loses Value

If you haven’t kept your website up-to-date, it’s time to rethink your strategy…
Not only do search engines love frequently updated sites, but a fresh website also:

  • Incites visitors to check back often for new content and updates.
  • Allows you to feature company news like new products, services, or meetings.
  • Gives you a chance to provide value (to lead to sales) without directly pitching your leads all the time.

Of course, the above are just a few reasons to keep your site updated… but there are also negative effects of a stale website.
For instance, if visitors see outdated announcements or content, they may assume you no longer support your business. This could lead them to buy from a competitor instead of you.


Treat Your Website Like a Garden

Think of your website as a garden. If it’s left unattended, weeds will grow and your plants are likely to shrivel up and die.

To get the most out of any garden, you must prune, trim, fertilize, aerate, plant, and remove pests in a strategic manner. And, that’s just a few of the things a garden needs to be pretty and productive. Your website is the same way. It needs regular maintenance and updates to keep it functioning properly, attracting visitors, and generating maximum revenue.

The Real Difference Between Upgrading and Building a New PC

If you’ve built your own computer, you can probably upgrade just the stuff you want without building an entirely new computer. Remember: Your computer is made up of a lot of parts, and many of them are reusable. Even if you buy a new motherboard and CPU (which is what Windows considers a “new computer”) you can still reuse your power supply, hard drives, video card, anything you don’t explicitly choose to upgrade.

The only times you’ll need to build a new computer from scratch is if  a) you need the old PC for something else, or b) everything in it is so old that nothing inside is worth recycling. Otherwise, it’s just an upgrade—though whether it’s a small upgrade or a big one depends on other factors.
