How to know your website is telling you it needs a revamp

Every website owner knows that pain and joy that comes with creating and maintaining a website. Some websites are like digital canvasses where we can visualize our ideas and present our image to the world. However, working on a website does not end after it’s launched. Over the years, you will have to look for signs that show that your website needs a makeover.

1

Is it responsive?

As the smartphone technology saturated the market, more and more users are accessing the Internet through their mobile device. It is no longer acceptable for a web design to be compatible with laptop and desktops only, it should be able to adjust itself depending on the user’s device. Making your website responsive to any device ensures a good user experience all the time.

2

Is the design sleek and clean?

Web design is now obsessed with flat. A flat interface creates a sleek and professional look and also helps you prioritize what to put on your design. Revisit your website and analyze if all the elements are still necessary and if they go together. It may be time to chop off some unnecessary buttons and sliders.

3

How fast can your website load?

This one is linked to your website’s responsiveness to different devices. The trend today is to let the website load fast by allowing the users not to download that much information. Since most of us are mobile, our data connection is limited as well and we ought to make the most out of it. Ensure that your landing page is crisp, concise, and has a clear message. Avoid unnecessary elements.

4

Are there pages that fail to load properly?

Inspect every page of your site to make sure that each of them is loading properly. If you’ve encountered the “404: Page not Found” error message, then this is a clear sign that your content management system (CMS) needs an upgrade. Fix broken links, missing images, text, and other content, and make sure that your site map reflects all the working pages.
