Spring Cleaning isn't just for your house! Spring is a great time to take a look through your website and ensure it is performing the way you designed it to.

Get started with a fresh proof reading! It gives you the chance to take an overall look at your website to see how up-to-date your information is. Double check for any spelling mistakes or errors you may have missed.

Check all links; nothing is more frustrating on a website than broken links! It makes your website look like its outdated. Are all the links working on your website?
Next you can go ahead and add fresh content and remove any outdated content from your website. Content helps with SEO, brings more organic leads into your website and gives website visitors a reason to stop and see what your website is about. Blogging can also help add regular fresh content to your website.
While you are adding content, it's a great time to look through the images you have on your website. Do you have any new fresh gallery images? Any recent projects to highlight? New products? It's important to keep your images up-to-date too.
