In a recent survey, 81% of people asked admitted they think less of a business if its website is outdated. Do you think your business falls victim and it’s time for a refresh?


Digital marketing and SEO news website Search Engine Journalist published an article this week entitled 81% of People Think Less of a Business if its Website is Outdated. It looked into the effects (and repercussions) of having a website that does not look modern and does not function correctly on new-age devices such as mobiles and tablets – let alone computers!

It goes on to show additional research such as 39% of the public would think twice about using a product or service if the website isn’t fresh and current. Another major turn-off when it comes to business websites is the lack of a search box; more than 40% say a search box is the most important feature on a website. If you couple the lack of search functionality with bad navigation, not only will your business struggle to make sales, but keep users on your website entirely.
