At BPetersonDesign, we believe in the power of a well-maintained and strategically designed website. For any business, especially those in service industries like electricians, the digital presence is crucial. This is why we recommend a website redesign every 3-5 years. Today, we’ll share the success story of Speck Family Electric’s website redesign and highlight the importance of modern web design practices, including PageSpeed Insights and content decay management.

The Importance of Regular Website Redesigns

A website redesign every 3-5 years ensures that your online presence remains current with technological advancements, design trends, and user expectations. For businesses like Speck Family Electric, this regular update is vital to staying competitive in the digital marketplace. As technology evolves, so do the standards for website performance, aesthetics, and functionality. An outdated website can lead to a poor user experience, which can drive potential customers away.

When we were having one of our monthly performance meetings with Speck Family Electric, we found their website performance was recently at a consistent down trend. Our goal was to create an updated site that brought their website performance back up while adding more service area pages to allow their website to rank better in their service areas.

Leveraging PageSpeed Insights

PageSpeed Insights is a tool that measures the performance of a website, providing insights into how quickly pages load and offering suggestions for improvement. This tool is critical because page speed plays a vital role in organic Google ranking and overall marketing effectiveness.

For Speck Family Electric, we optimized their website to ensure fast loading times, which is crucial for keeping visitors engaged and improving their search engine rankings. A faster website not only enhances user experience but also boosts visibility in search engine results, driving more organic traffic to the site.

Addressing Content Decay

Content decay refers to the gradual decline in the relevance and effectiveness of web content over time. As information becomes outdated, its value to users diminishes, and search engines may rank it lower. Regularly updating and refreshing content is essential to combat this decay and maintain high search engine rankings.

In our redesign of the Speck Family Electric website, we performed a thorough content audit to identify outdated or irrelevant information. We then worked with the Speck Family team to update and create fresh content that highlights their expertise, services, and customer success stories. This ongoing content strategy helps to keep their website relevant and valuable to both users and search engines.
