Website Maintenance Plan in Knoxville, TN
In the early years of the Internet, things were different. You could just hire a web designer, pay thousands of dollars, and be done. The website would then sit on the Internet, and the leads would flood in. Sites didn’t need extra attention and hands-on maintenance except to change out the occasional wording of something. That was rare, perhaps once or twice a quarter, more if a small business ran specials, but not often. Small business websites also weren’t being bombarded by global hacking attacks. Now, things have changed.
Flash forward to our day, ongoing website maintenance is necessary to keep it running smoothly. We call this, Website Care Service. Most website design firms have a similar service.
What is Included in the Website Care Service?
Analytics tracking. Google SEO monitoring. Website performance and stability testing. Advice, tips and training related to owning and managing a website. Excellent, proactive customer service.
Includes all updates to the site minus major page additions and full website redesigns. Most of the update requests are fulfilled same day due to our excellent customer service. Updates are unlimited (not just 3 per year, etc).
Geo-redundancy. Daily site backup. Lock down site to prevent hackers. Remove all website viruses and hacks. Monitor for security updates and patches. For eCommerce sites, maintain active SSL certificate to secure the checkout process.

Search Engine Optimization
We connect your website to Google Webmaster Tools and monitor it for SEO improvements and issues. This is a tool provided by Google itself for webmasters. It provides insights on the pages they’ve crawled on your website and tips on improving your ranking.
If your local listings have incorrect contact information, potential customers might not be able to reach you. We ensure your business name, address, email, and phone number are accurate on your local listings, such as Google My Business, Google Maps, and Facebook.
In the event that your website does get hacked (even with all the security measures in place, this is never an impossibility), we take time to remove the virus, clean up the website, restore the data, and remove your site from browser and search engine blacklists.
