Web Site Maintenance

I firmly believe that all webmasters who maintain sites of any significance should regularly publish a newsletter. This allows interested visitors to be updated on events and new materials published on the site, and gives the webmaster a method for communicating with his audience at will.  

All webmasters need to stay up-to-date on new technologies which they can use to improve their web site. In addition, getting certified, joining organization, continuing their education and attending conventions is essential to staying current and active. They give methods for communicating.

Occasionally review your site. When you look over a page, check your grammar, spelling and accuracy. Remember that as time progresses your articles may become stale, so be sure and recheck your conclusions and facts. What may have been true when you wrote the article last year is not necessarily true or important anymore.

 Learn as much as you can about web site security, and ensure that, to the best of your abilities and knowledge, that your site is secure. This ensures that your customers (if any) and visitors information remains confidential and safe. It also protects you and your web host from harm. Post a privacy policy and adhere to it without exception.
