Why Website Maintenance is Critical to SEO

Posted by Jacob Redmond on Mon, Oct 31, 2016 11:48 AM

Google continues to reward websites that provide desired user experience to visitors and punish websites that don't. This often times involves factors more technical than optimized keywords and on-page content. Each update to the PageRank algorithm is designed to display search rankings in a way that answers users queries in a faster and more accurate way than ever before. This means that the user experience aspects of SEO like site speed and site security are becoming more important with each update. With that being said, poor or nonexistent website maintenance can have potentially catastrophic effects on your site's SEO. The good news is that these pitfalls can be avoided rather easily. Much like cars, websites require ongoing maintenance to run at peak performance, and an ongoing Website Maintenance Plan can keep your website running fast and reliable at all times, and stop security breaches before they happen.
