It's that time of year again

Hopefully you have all had a great Christmas and looking forward to the New Year? Just a quick tip, it's time to plan to change all your copyright dates to 2012 on 1st January or as soon as possible after that date. Good to make other changes, check spelling and create new sitemaps.

Why? Well you know when you visit a website you see many things in the first few seconds, You do notice if the site still shows the copyright year as 2009 etc, this tells you the site is not maintained properly, and may not have the latest information you are looking for. Many often seeking another site.

Don't let this happen to your website

Website Sitemaps, and especially the xml sitemap are important

I did a quick study just now and found more than 85% of websites are not using a Google type sitemap. You would think with all the effort and seo work done, the very least would be to keep the various sitemaps up to date. If you are not certain what I mean, you can read more at Website Sites which show examples and the reasons to use them.

It's alway nice when lots of hard work are recognised.

Made it into the Newsletter from WPW this week. Hope this translates into more visitors.
