Well, here we are again. It’s SPRINGTIME!! Yayyyy!! The flowers are blooming, the sun is shining and the weather is ab-so-lutely beautiful! Finally, it’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for! But, as much as we hate to admit it, the sunshine and beautiful weather often tend to shed light on a problem that can cause us a little bit of guilt and embarrassment. You guessed it … it’s those dreaded WINTER POUNDS. *shriek* But, wait, I’m not talking about your waistline. I’m actually referring to the extra, unhealthy weight your website has slowly, but surely, accumulated over the fall and winter months, or who knows, maybe even longer!
Yep, that extra weight tends to sneak up on you, bit by bit, slowly creating those unsightly, virtual love handles. Eh, so you’ve overindulged and added an extra image here and there (doughnut). And, an extra button (pizza). And, a video (potato chips). Uh, … and some rambling text (cheeseburger, French fries, and probably one of those large-sized cola drinks)?? Hey, that’s okay, we’re all guilty of doing this from time to time. It will just take a little bit of hard work and dedication to get your website back into the great shape it was in just a short time ago.
So, where do we begin? How exactly will you get your website back to looking and performing its best? And, more importantly, how will this be accomplished without affecting the overall integrity of your website? Through exercise and a good diet plan, of course.
Let me explain:
Exercise your website.
Exchange that unwanted flab for some muscle. You can begin by replacing any irrelevant content and unnecessary pages with fresh and more recent information. Update your products and images. I’m pretty sure performing these minor exercises will produce some of those magical endorphins everyone is talking about. Your website will be much happier and will be back to functioning at its best in no time!
Feed your website a balanced diet.
With every good weight loss plan, a well balanced diet is required. So, only populate your website with quality information and try to include only material that is useful. Add images that complement your pages, rather than giant, or excessive graphics, that could weigh your pages down, causing a slower download time. And, finally, supplement your website’s diet by creating a blog and by participating in social media.
If all else fails, hire a personal trainer.
Perhaps you’ve gotten in a little over your head and are feeling overwhelmed doing this on your own. Or, perhaps it’s just time for a complete overhaul of your website. Well, there’s no shame in getting little bit of extra help and support by hiring a personal trainer to do some of the thinking for you. That’s where your SEO company comes in. Working together, you will begin setting, and achieving, reasonable goals and you will be amazed with the results!
Just remember, crash dieting most often leads to failure. So, make this new maintenance regimen a permanent part of your routine. Trust me, you will thank yourself later.
So, good luck to you on battling those winter pounds and on beginning your new journey to a healthier, happier website!
Now, get out there and enjoy some of that sunshine!
