2019 Website Needs

There are website trends and there are needs.

Trends are cool, obviously.

Needs, well, they’re essential to the health and searchability of your website!

While we’ll be posting about 2019 website trends in the near future, we wanted to share the important stuff first!

Mobile-friendly with responsive design.

This is not a drill! Your website needs to be mobile friendly with a responsive design!

Did you know 57% of online users say they won’t recommend a business if their website is difficult to navigate on their mobile device?

Additionally, over half of online users are visiting websites via their mobile devices. This alone should be your motivation behind a mobile-responsive website.

If you’re unsure if your website is mobile-friendly, Google has a free search site to let you know.

If your website is not mobile-friendly, get in contact with our development experts here at Denver Media Group to develop a plan!

What happens if you don’t have a mobile-friendly website? Google will overlook your website in search results.

For us, when Google talks, we listen.

Industry updates.

Every industry makes small changes as years pass. As content professionals, we highly recommend giving your website a “content audit.”

Check over your website and make the appropriate changes to reflect new industry standards or changes.

A good rule of thumb: if your website hasn’t been updated in over three years, it’s a good idea to check in on the industry you’re in.

Increased web-speed.

If your website is slow, you will not retain website visitors. If your website loads in five seconds or less, you’re in the clear. If your website takes five seconds or more, it’s time to troubleshoot.

If you’re unsure of your pagespeed, Google has a tool to measure how your website can be improved.

Strong Security.

It’s no secret that security on the internet has been a hot topic in 2018. Security problems have be rough.

Between internet healthcare and banking breaches, social media hackings, and other internet thefts, security is crucial to your website in 2019.

Moreover, Google is now favoring websites using SSL certificates.

It’s important for every website to be up-to-snuff in their security efforts, however, any website that is collecting information of any kind, needs to pay extra attention to their security in 2019

2019 is quickly approaching. Get ahead of the game and make these important changes before you get too far into the year.
