Redesigning your website? Don’t forget SEO!
‘Redesigning your website – This needs be a task that you look at at least every two years without fail. Website design is always improving and if your website is more than 2 years old, chances are it is outdated and needs a redesign. This redesign may be a complete overhaul or it may just be improving a few things.’
‘SEO – search engine optimisation, ensures that your website is optimised so that search engines like Google and Bing can index your website in the search results. This indexing is based on the terms that you wish to rank for and the solutions you provide for your ideal clients.’

It is important to note that SEO and Google Ads are two separate things and they provide two different results. SEO is organic traffic and Google Ads are cost per click traffic. While they can be provided together they should be reported separately so you know what is happening with each type of marketing service. Confusing the two can result in you not understanding the results of your marketing efforts.
Redesigning your website
- Now you have picked the company to redesign your website, you are excited and the results are amazing, however, SEO has not even been discussed or thought of.
- Or perhaps you think it is not necessary as you don’t really understand what it means or you have never had to worry about it in the past. Remember that the internet is always changing and improving, your business and website needs to do the same or it will get left behind.
- When you are redesigning your website search engine optimisation (SEO) should influence all areas of your website. The content, the images the user experience and more. It is both on-page and off-page and is a long-term ongoing commitment to getting found online.
- By utilising the services of an SEO professional your website will appear in the search results for your ideal clients.
- Content – Your content should answer the questions that your ideal clients have. The images should relate to your business and the user experience of your website should be easy to navigate and let people find everything they need.
- Make sure that your redesign includes SSL security, mobile responsiveness, a hosting provider with a 99% uptime. All these things will affect how well your website ranks in the search results.
Don’t forget SEO
- The exclusion of SEO from your website redesign can see your website vanish from the search results. While it is typical to see a dip in the traffic when you redesign your website it could last a long time without working on SEO.
- The simple outcome of forgetting SEO is that while your website looks and feels amazing no one will see it in the search results. Is your new sparkling website not receiving the traffic that your old outdated website did?
- Have you forgotten about SEO with your website redesign? Don’t worry, My Sassy Business can complete SEO work for you to achieve results.
- Perhaps your designer mentioned it and you were unsure of the meaning or you didn’t think it was important at the time. It’s not too late.

Be cautious with any SEO business who cold calls you or emails you promising the world – they are spam businesses and will cause you problems. No professional SEO company will contact you like this. These types of businesses tend to tell you that your business website is missing a whole heap of things and they can fix your website. They also provide guarantees of page one results etc. don’t get caught out. We are all at the mercy of Google and no one can rig the outcome. Trying to rig the outcome can see your website blacklisted from Google altogether.
