Does your website still run elements of Adobe flash? Sorry to break the news to you but now is the perfect time to think about a website re-design! Google search has recently announced that before the end of this year they will be ‘ignoring’ web pages that contain flash content. This means that Google will no longer be indexing your website. The impact this has is that if you rely on organic traffic to your dental website to bring in new patients etc you should seriously consider giving your website a refresh and stop using flash.
If your website does not use any flash but is still looking very dated, you still might want to consider a re-design. There are plenty of other benefits of a website revamp, including the following:
Higher positioning in search rankings – Having a new website will mean your website will be glowing with all the latest technologies ranging from SEO best practices, speed and functionality. Your website will also be optimised for mobile and will give users a better user experience. As google favours mobile optimised web pages, I’m confident you would see a positive impact on your Google rankings.
New website visitors – Unfortunately, users will judge your website within the first 0.5 seconds of visiting, so if your website does not reflect your practice and does not provide a smooth user experience then you are in trouble! Modern designs bring warming feel to the user and make them not only confident but comfortable when navigating through your website. You want to be asking yourself simple questions such as:
Futureproof – I completely understand that deciding on a website re-design is a big decision and should be thought out thoroughly!
