Maintaining your website’s content helps your website to appear higher on search engine rankings. Google and other search engines are always looking for websites that are being regularly updated. They index that information when determining rankings, so if a website is not updated regularly, a lowering of the site’s search rankings will be seen. Google gives higher rankings to websites that are updated regularly because they want to present the best quality content to their customers.
Search engine optimisation (SEO) rules change every few months and your website needs to be tweaked to accommodate these changes to keep competitive within search engine results.
Search engine optimisation is not something that you do for a day, or a week or even a month. It’s something you need to do for as long as you plan on doing business. If you get to the top of the organic search results thanks to good SEO tactics, you need to work hard to retain that position or your search engine rankings will start to fall back down.
The technical health and speed of your website is as important to your brand’s search engine optimisation success as is its content development, link acquisition and marketing distribution efforts. Few digital enterprises, however, spend much time on what may ultimately matter most – the technical issues that can often prevent an optimal interaction from occurring for the search engines and the users they refer.
All SEO work is rendered pointless if your website loads poorly. You will lose score on page ranking as website speed is used in Google ranking algorithm.
Google has indicated site speed (and as a result, page speed) is one of the signals used by its algorithm to rank pages. And research has shown that Google might be specifically measuring time to first byte as when it considers page speed. In addition, a slow page speed means that search engines can crawl fewer pages using their allocated crawl budget, and this could negatively affect your indexation.
Page speed is also important to user experience. Pages with a longer load time tend to have higher bounce rates and lower average time on page. Longer load times have also been shown to negatively affect conversions.
You’ll probably notice that our servers are set up and are continuously being updated, using best practices to ensure the fastest load times, which in turn serves best search engine pick up.
In order to ensure that your website is completely up to date, you should consider creating and implementing a schedule. A schedule will provide you with the motivation and reason to carry out many tasks often forgotten about.
Creating a schedule is not difficult. You should be creating new content for your website at least once a month. This content should be targeted at either your customers or your suppliers as both have a different message and purpose. The easiest way for this to be done is in the form of an article.
Content (articles) should be added to your website in the form of a new page or a blog article. This page of information should also be emailed to your relevant email subscriber list (customer or supplier).
Assign a fixed date when the article will be released. Ensure you stick to those publishing dates as readers like to see consistency. We would suggest the last working day of each month.
Updating your website continually is an important task for your online marketing. A well maintained website will help your site rank well.
As a business owner, the problem you may have is that you are busy completing your daily off-line tasks and running your business. You do not have the time to do this type of work yourself.

In other cases, maybe you are the person that the MD assigned the task for the company website management but you do not have any idea how involved this can be nor where to start.
