If you’ve become accustomed to ignoring update notifications, you’re not alone. Most business owners have so many things to worry about, that checking in on their website updates isn’t a high priority. Security is the major concern here. But, there are other important reasons to keep your website updated. We can help.

1. Vulnerabilities

  • Content management systems and plugins are routinely updated to fix vulnerabilities and secure your site against hackers.
  • Each time an update is released, the developers post the reason for the update. Unfortunately, this also alerts hackers to potential exploits. The longer you leave those updates unattended, the more vulnerable your website is going to be.
  • Make sure you keep your website and plugins up to date on a regular basis to protect yourself and your business from these vulnerabilities.

2. Bugs

  • Because a lot of things on a website work in tandem, it’s not uncommon for the content management system or plugins to run into problems from time to time.
  • Whenever new bugs are found and reported, developers are often quick to release fixes for these issues and offer them as a part of a website or plugin update.
  • By keeping on top of your updates on a regular basis you can help ensure that your website and plugins function at their best, and present the best possible experience to your users.

3. Features

  • Content management systems and plugins are always evolving, and web technology moves very quickly. As a result, updates can often provide great new features and functionality.
  • New features can include better ways for you to manage your website and content, or better ways for you to present your business to your users.
  • To ensure you’re always using the latest technology available to you, it’s important to keep your website and plugins updated as regularly as possible. Make sure you’re taking advantage of everything that will differentiate your site from your competition.
