It is highly advisable to update your website's content at least once every week to achieve this goal of making it to the first page of search engine results.
- Encourage more visitors to your website. Updating your website periodically not only increases the potential of getting good search engine placement, it also encourages visitors to check out your site more often.

And if your site gets to be added in social bookmarks, then more and more people get to know that your business actually exists.

This way, you are given a heads up on how your clients perceive the products or services you offer. Not only do you get timely feedback, but free market research as well.
The World Wide Web has brought business interaction to the next level. It has made client interface more possible hence the more likelihood of meeting customer satisfaction. While maintaining a website can be tedious and costly, there are surefire ways of savings large amounts of money on advertising costs. This can then be allotted to other aspects of your business such as research and development to assure its continued success.
