How do I know if my Website needs to be Redesigned?

Should I redesign my website? If you've asked yourself this question, the answer is more than likely yes. We've put together some tips for knowing when it's time to redesign your website. 

There are two main reasons why a large-scale redesign is necessary for a website:

  1. A content redesign: if your website previously was not properly conveying information about your business. This could also be called an SEO redesign.
  2. A layout redesign: If your website was made awhile ago, then its layout may be unfortunately outdated. Unlike narrow ties and fat ties that go in and out of style, website advances tend to keep progressing. It is really unlikely that blinking text will ever come back in style. At least, we can hope.


How do I know if my website needs to be redesigned?

  • Competitors are outranking you in search engine results
  • If it's been more than 5 years since your last redesign
  • Site navigation is slow
  • You can't update content without help from a programmer or web designer
  • You're not getting a lot of website traffic
  • Your website doesn't display correctly in the latest browsers

Although it may not seem like a big deal, staying current helps you stand out. This is something you definitely want to do.
