Nothing is ever perfect, pages can always be improved! Over time pages can become outdated as businesses grow and make changes.

Make sure that your website represents your business as well as possible and that the message you are trying to illustrate, or the action you want the user to take, is clear.

Landing Pages

When there is a chance to create a new page for visitors take it!

However, remember Google doesn’t want to see duplicate information, so make sure the page is relevant and different to the other pages on your site.

Keyword research is incredibly useful for this process, allowing you to see what people are searching for and target that audience – creating a page more likely to attract visitors.
