Here is a list of 13 things to look out for when auditing the website:
You have to know how to compare the CMS present on the market to make a wise and strategic choice. It will be necessary to choose the CMS which will be the most adapted to an effective and relevant redesign.
A CMS is a content management system that allows you to create and publish web content without having any knowledge of computer language programming.
Webmaster Philippines regularly works with WordPress, he is even a web developer!
Wordpress being the most popular CMS and therefore the most used in the world. If you want to find a competent Wordpress web designer, you have come to the right website!
There are other CMS more suitable for online stores such as Prestashop or Shopify for example. The CMS itself is not everything, you have to be careful to choose the theme (template) that you will use as part of a redesign. There are many templates available, but unfortunately they don't always meet Google's ranking criteria.
In most cases, you have to modify these themes and modify the source code to make them more SEO friendly. Consult us before buying your WordPress template.
If your website is slow, it's not always the fault of the coding, it can come from the performance of the server on which it is installed. It is important to identify if the slowdowns in page loading come from the site itself, or from the web server.
You should also know that the geographical location of a web server has an impact on the loading time of the pages of a website. It is necessary to check that the location of the server is as close as possible to the targeted visitors.
For example, if your target visitors are in the Philippines, you will have to choose a server that is physically located in the Philippines or in Asia.
If your target visitors are international, you will need to put a CDN (Content Delivery Network) in place.
As part of an optimal website redesign, the website must always be secured using a valid SSL certificate.
In addition, the use of an htaccess file is essential. This file must be present at the root of the website in order to manage redirections (permanent or temporary), and manage caching and apply security rules.
A bad natural referencing can depend only on a problem at the level of the htaccess file, it is for this reason that you must be very vigilant on this point!
In most cases, it is best to keep the same urls as the original website to avoid undoing all the SEO efforts already made. Sometimes, it is necessary to change the urls if they have underscores, or names that are too long.
If the redesign of your website also includes the improvement of local referencing, it is preferable to add the name of a city that corresponds to the geographical locality where your potential customers are located in the urls of your pages.
A successful redesign of a website necessarily depends on the quality of the content of the pages. Make sure to update the texts and images of each page of your website. Google likes content that improves over time.
Google's algorithms appreciate when a website is regularly updated, it is very positive for your SEO and for your website visitors as well.
It may be that in the long run, your website has deleted or moved pages, it is imperative to take stock of the links that no longer exist. Dead links penalize the effectiveness of your on-site SEO.
A redesigned website is always better without broken links and 404 pages.
The sitemap.xml is a file that lists all the web pages of a website. During a website redesign, it is possible that some links have changed names.
By updating your website map with the sitemap, you help Google correctly index all the pages of your new website. It is also a good plus point for the SEO of your website.
As part of the redesign of a website, it is essential to study why Internet users do not stay long on your web pages, why the conversion rate is not good. The conversion rate is the ratio between the number of visitors to your website and the number of people who contact you. A website must be attractive and must make people want to contact you.
The user experience depends on the graphic charter and the content in general.
In order to properly prepare the redesign of your website, you must put in place a digital strategy that will allow you to transform more visitors into customers, and therefore to make your website ergonomic.
Over time, some offers may no longer trend or expire. A redesign is also an opportunity to review all the offers and products on your website. There are many websites whose dates are no longer up to date and whose description is obsolete.
It is imperative to update inbound links by contacting other website owners who have shared your pages and articles. If you don't, the effectiveness of your natural referencing will be reduced. Your domain name will lose authority. And the websites that have shared your pages and articles end up with 404 pages (dead links).
You are strongly advised to contact the owners of these websites, inviting them to update their web pages. This way you can preserve your precious backlinks (especially if they are in Dofollow).
Many entrepreneurs waste time and are surprised because they haven't thought to update their up-to-date communication and marketing tools. It is necessary to prepare new business cards and flyers if you have changed your domain name during the redesign of your website.
If you have changed your graphic charter, your communication media must have the same design as your website. Your new SEO strategy must be in line with your communication.
You must adapt your new way of communicating while respecting the SEO guidelines of your website.
Once the redesign of your website is complete, it is recommended to announce through a newsletter and/or on social networks, that your website has been completely redesigned.
