What should we do on website maintenance?

Website maintenance is not an easy task. We need regularly do maintenance tasks to ensure your website keeps a nice status. Website maintenance could be separated into weekly tasks, monthly tasks, quarterly tasks, and annual tasks. Below is a brief explanation of what you should do on maintenance.

Weekly Tasks

Check and fixed 404 error

Make sure that the link on your website doesn’t link to any webpage that has been delete.

Backup your website

Regular backups are a good habit to help you deal with unexpected and dangerous surprises.

Check form validity

Try to submit your own contact form to check your form is running properly or not.

Updated post

Update one or two blog posts a week to provide value to visitors and keep them coming back.

Monthly Tasks

Tracking and analytics website

Use Google Analytics to check which page has a higher bounce rate or lower traffic. Apply a suitable workaround to improve your website for more visitors.

Update plugins and themes

If you use WordPress as your CMS to develop your website, your website probably has multiple plugins and software applications working on the backend. At this point, you need to update regularly to keep your website safe from impact.

Check your website ranking

Enter keywords in the search engine and see if your website ranks in the top three. If not, you need to optimize SEO for your website.

Check loading time of your website

Nobody likes to wait for a page to load because it affects the experience, but loading too fast probably causes discomfort to the visitor. So the page load time of 1 – 3 seconds will be better.

Quarterly Tasks

Review of the website

It is a good practice to give a general overview of your website. Watch out for random issues, misinformation, and make sure to implement any necessary updates.

Update website content

Update the content on your website, such as graphics, photos, and other information. Also, check out any blog posts that rank particularly well in search engines and add more valuable knowledge. Finally, check your meta titles and descriptions to make sure they’re perfectly optimized.

Test pop-ups, and checkout pages

Navigate through pop-ups, and checkout pages like a customer to ensure a nice user experience.

Annual Tasks

Domain renewal

Remember to pay domain renewal fees on time to protect your site from being taken over by others.

Renew website design

Review your website design to make sure it doesn’t look dated, which can make your business look disjointed. If at the end of the year, you find that your website could use some important updates, consider a redesign.

Browser compatibility

Check if your website works on several different browsers such as Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Mozilla Firefox and Apple Safari etc. Different browsers may affect the layout and functionality of your website.
