Here at Studio Center Digital we have evaluated hundreds of sites and some were quite good. However, the vast majority has significant issues. A website may LOOK good but be invisible to the search engines that give your site an organic traffic boost. In talking to customers, we have found that most businesses just don’t have the time or resources to consistently maintain and optimize their websites. We do

The following is a list of 10 VERY important issues that need to be absolutely “on point” for your website to do ALL that you need it to do:

  1. Do you Blog? You should consider it.
  2. Metadata: Are you utilizing Metadata tags? These allow you to tell the search engines what your web pages are about.
  3. Readability: Who is your audience? Does your copy “speak” to them?
  4. Is your domain registered for at least another year? Optimizing your site requires stability and you really wouldn’t want to lose it would you
  5. Links: Do you have enough sites linking to yours?
  6. Twitter: Yep, “tweeting”. If you can, do it. You're rewarded for it and there are many strategies out there customized for your business.
  7. Is your RSS Feed Detectable? RSS stands for Real Simple Syndication and is commonly used to deliver content to your site visitors after they have left.
  8. Do you have a Conversion Form or Forms on your site? Without them you cannot convert site traffic into customers!
  9. Indexed Pages: Web Crawlers visit your site periodically and look for new content to index. Are you creating new relevant content frequently enough? MORE pages are better! visitors
  10. Traffic: Do you have enough visitors to your site?
