All successful, profitable, popular, and best-practice SEO (search engine optimized) websites share a common habit:

The website content is updated on a regular basis with new, pertinent, relevant, or revised information.

Keeping content fresh is easy, does not require a complete overhaul, or even daily updates; yet the benefits are tremendous!

To be successful, it's important to offer new or revised information on a fairly regular basis; while keeping a familiar environment, and site navigation.

Benefits of Fresh Content

There are many benefits to updating website content on a regular basis, including, but not limited to:

Businesses that keep their website content fresh, and up-to-date will find overall:

Regardless of industry, there will always be areas where website content can use updating and improvement.

The following are just a few basic ideas of website sections that can use regular revision:

    Company & Industry Related News Updates
    • There are always new ideas, articles, trends, or updates to report:

      • Report the latest industry news, trends, legalities, or other industry changes
      • Articles related to the company, employees, or industry standards
      • Changes affecting the business, industry, or its consumers

    • Industry related updates can vary from simple, quick tips, blurbs (or blogs) about something new or different; to longer, more in-depth articles or reviews.

    • Daily or weekly social network updates on social medias such as Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram, Twitter, and Alignable, ideally should link to the relevant information, news, or article on the company website.

Over time, an updated "news & resource section" of a website can become a gold-mine of information for search engines, customers, and prospects alike.

    Case Study, Testimonial, Product & Service Content Updates
    • Add new case studies and testimonials regularly, to show off the latest work, as well as happy clients. (Case studies and testimonials can also significantly help with local search engine ranking.)

    • Keep product and service information up-to-date. If information regarding products or services change, then the website needs to be updated to reflect those changes immediately.

    • Keep customers informed of specials and seasonal sales or events. Often consumers will check back just to see the latest specials or events.

    • Regularly visit and review website pages to make sure the most effective content is being used. Revising overtime often allows for the evolution of more effective descriptions and content.

    • Revise for ease of reading; splitting up the content into easy to read paragraphs, with proper paragraph headers (titles), and bulleted or numbered lists of specifications is often considered best practice:
