How To Increase Website Traffic – my list
of free and paid for tools here: http://benlovegrove.com/audit-refresh-websites/ Websites are like plants, trees, and animals.
They need to be nurtured, fed, and given regular health checks. It’s not a difficult task but
it does need to be part of your routine. It’s good practice to put some effort into
a continuous cycle of improvement so with that in mind here are some ways to audit and
refresh your websites to give them more chance of drawing organic traffic. Note: the following advice will have to applied
according to the platform on which you site is built, be that WordPress, Joomla, etc. Website Audit and Review The first task is to take a detailed look
at your website and audit it. Before you can make any improvements you need to baseline
it to establish the current status so that you can measure any progress. Things to consider in this review: Keywords Is your site designed to attract traffic from
particular search terms? Are these terms still relevant? Should they be updated based on
changes in the way people search and the terms they use? Content How much new text and media has been added
in the past 12 months? Was this too much or too little? What would you change about the
schedule in the months ahead? Quality How satisfied are you with the quality of
the content added so far? Have you ever hired a proofreader to have the site checked for
spelling, grammatical, and punctuation errors? Appearance How about the site design? Does the current
theme look dated? Next, audit the site for technical errors
that could effect its performance. There are plugins and sites that will carry out these
tests for you. Just google for the test term with the keyword plugin or test to find examples: Broken links Are there any broken links, missing images,
and videos that don’t run? Code errors Is the HTML, CSS and other code error free?
How could it be improved? Mobile friendly How does your site load and display on smart
phones and tablets? Put your URL into Google’s free tool and test it. Forms and functions Are all the contact, mailing list and other
forms working correctly? Reporting Is your Google Analytics code reporting correctly
and accurately? Finally, don’t forget security and backups: When did you last backup your website? Is
the process automated? Where is the backup stored? How secure is your website? Are you plagued
by spammers, spam comments, and spammy registrations? Website Improvements If you’ve checked all of this and found
the site to be over 80% error free then well done! It’s in very good shape and only needs
a few other tweaks to optimise it. However, if there are obvious areas for improvement
then it’s time to work out a plan and implement it. You can make these improvements in any order
but you might prefer to start with the design first and then rearrange the content. Once
you’ve decided on a new theme you rearrange and amend the existing content. You’ve then
got a fresh looking site that might inspire you write more articles and blog posts. You’ll need to address all and any of the
items listed above. If this is beyond your expertise or if you’re in any doubt about
how to do it then hire someone to do it for you. I would be happy to give you a no-obligation
quote too. Strengthen your site’s SEO by auditing and
improving it It’s easy to become obsessive about SEO
and forget that the priority is simply to create interesting and informative websites
that answer your target audience’s need, and which inspire visitors to return to your
site and to share its contents. Take care of that task and your site’s ranking
will improve naturally. Creating a site that is error free, loads
quickly, is mobile friendly will help. If you’ve audited, refreshed, and renewed
it then you’ve already improved the SEO to some extent. Adding fresh and original content that people
like and share will attract backlinks. Writing articles and blog post, or creating
videos, that are shared on social media will also help. However, you an dive much deeper into this
subject and use tools that will analyse the site, suggest improvements, and give you the
means to implement those changes. Again, you can learn to do it yourself or hire someone
to do this for you. Conclusion As with houses, businesses, life habits and
more, websites need annual audits, reviews, and refreshment. You can make some or all
of these changes yourself with free and purchased tools. If you visit my blog you’ll find the
ones I use there. Visit http://benlovegrove.com/audit-refresh-websites/ Alternatively, outsource the task and look
forward to seeing a gleaming new website for the year ahead. You can find people to this
for you on freelancer sites like Upwork.com and others like it. Thanks for watching! I hope you found this
interesting and useful. Please give the video a thumbs up, share it, and add a comment below.
