3 Steps To Keep Your Website Current In 2018

Here are 3 essential steps you need to take to make sure your website is performant with today's web.

1. Be GDPR compliant and avoid fines

GDPR came into force on 25th May 2018. So the deadline has passed and the hype died down, but you need to be 100% sure that you satisfy the legal requirements of GDPR. You can follow our GDPR guidance and implementation steps on freshdesk, but if it's still a mystery to you then let us tackle it and  sort your website's GDPR. Typical cost is £225+VAT and includes checking your policies, scanning your cookies and setting them up in Cookie Manager.

2. Upgrade to https and display the 'green padlock' to visitors

Browser providers like Google Chrome, Apple Safari and Microsoft Edge are progressively updating browsers and warning your website visitors if you do not have https data encryption to protect traffic passing over the web. Make sure you professionally upgrade to https - it's about more than just adding an SSL certificate! We can save money with a free SSL but also scan pages for issues that break your green padlock, bulk update blog posts and make sure your analytics  and search console work once you move to https. Typical cost: £150+VAT including free SSL certificate from Let's Encrypt.

3. Make sure your site is mobile friendly

If you haven't already migrated your site to a mobile-friendly version, then now's the time to do it with the new 'mobile first' re-indexing of the web by Google. All business websites need to be mobile friendly! Typical cost: £600+VAT to migrate your current design. Full re-designs can be quoted based on your requirements.
