How Old Is Your Website?

Lifespan of a Website

Many of us think that once we have paid to have a website developed that is the end of it. Job done. I have  carried out some research amongst some of my fellow website developers. It may come as a surprise that the average age of an effective website is recommended  be no older than 2 years 7 months*.  After this time it may need some serious updating and possible structural rebuilding.  I have recently been asked to complete re-builds of several websites which have served their owners well.  But some are now starting to fail. 404 messages being returned by pages inaccessible. Missing images. When a website starts to fail it can cause no end of headaches for all concerned.
