Time waits for no one—everything ages. This can be a good thing, such as with a fine bottle of wine, but age isn’t always so kind; if you let items like cars and teeth age without proper care or maintenance, they deteriorate and often stop working entirely.
This applies to online business material as well. There are still people who think you can just put business material online and expect it to remain accurate, relevant, and useful, but this isn’t the case. Like other aspects of business, such as advertising and product lines, online business material needs to be regularly updated if it’s going to help a business succeed.
It’s important to pay close attention to your SEO and its age. SEO has a shelf life, eventually becoming almost useless to your business. While you may not wish to do it, you have to be ready to refresh your SEO material so it continues to benefit you and your business.
Examine and Evaluate
Updating SEO means having to examine and evaluate content on a regular basis. By going through your online business results, you can get a feeling of where your SEO is weak and where to make the necessary changes.
Keywords are important here, as you’ll often have to redo your content with new competitive keywords so that your SEO material stays fresh in organic searches. While it’s not something you have to do every day, a regular overview of your SEO results can let you know which competitive keywords are working, which ones aren’t, and what combinations of long-tail keywords need to be revamped. Use your keyword tool to find new, fresh keywords and apply them using proper keyword density.
You might also be thinking about improving your links. With interlinking and link building, it’s best to examine your links in detail and see what areas need to be changed, redone, or even removed.
A complete update of your online SEO material can offer additional benefits. Not only do you revamp your SEO operation as a whole, but you can also spot places to improve content and make cosmetic changes, such as an ideal location for a new graphic.
Loose meta tags and dead links are often found when refreshing older content. You may also discover pages with poor keyword density or get ideas for a complete overhaul of your content and graphics to make them easier to use in your regular SEO processes.
In fact, that’s why updating online material is necessary. Old and stale material can seriously hinder SEO, but fixing and updating it can help it once again bring in new customers, leading to greater success.
