Website maintenanceDesigning a website to use as advertisement to expand an urban planning sole-proprietorship or architecture company is a beneficial investment; however, simply having a customized website design and optimizing it for search engines cannot be expected to continually rank well.

If left undeveloped, you may lose the business your website initially produced; therefore, website maintenance is critical for urban planners and architects in gaining potential clients and continuing to attract current ones.

Content writing is an important factor in website maintenance. It includes creating or editing online text to inform the reader, and to promote or sell the company, product or services described on the website. Examples of content writing range from basic website writing, such as blogs, to press releases.

A major aspect of SEO are keywords and key phrases, which are specific words that describe the overall content within the website, and would appear first in the title section of the page. Continuous SEO content writing and editing typically experience higher rankings than stagnant websites. Additionally, new keywords should be researched before creating new content, which will provide visitors more ways to encounter your website based on the keywords they’ve entered in the search engine.

You may have higher search engine positions for more important or relevant keywords that are connected to your website; although, if you’re not receiving any traffic from these keywords or phrases, you may need to evaluate the keywords you use. The cause of this may be because keywords that once received high rankings may have decreased in ranking or no longer work, which makes sense since many websites are being added to the web every day resulting in a boundless chain of new and developing keywords.
