Clean Up Your Site

Over time, websites can accumulate clutter in the form of outdated content, broken links, and convoluted navigation menus. Tackle this first by going through each page and removing any unnecessary or irrelevant items. Next, turn your attention to the navigation menu. The goal should be to provide a simple and intuitive structure that allows visitors to easily find the key information they need. Remove any redundant or rarely visited pages from the main navigation, leaving only your core, essential pages. To streamline further, consolidate related content onto single pages where possible. For example, instead of separate “Services” and “Pricing” pages, you could combine details on your offerings and pricing into one coherent “What We Offer” page.

Update Your Core Pages

With the clutter cleared out, ensure that the content and visuals on your most important pages (Home, About Us, Services/Products, Contact, etc.) are fully up-to-date, on-brand, and accurately reflect your current business. Give the page copy a fresh editorial review, rewriting or restructuring as needed to improve messaging, flow, and clarity. Swap out any stale or irrelevant images/video for new multimedia assets that better represent your brand and offerings. If significant updates are required, this is also a great time to redesign the layout and styling of key pages to create a more modern, visually appealing experience.

Optimize for Search Engines

For websites to receive steady streams of organic traffic from search engines, it’s crucial to incorporate effective SEO (search engine optimization) techniques. If your last SEO tune-up was many months ago, your content and metadata likely need to be refreshed. Start by revisiting your keyword research to identify high-value terms that are relevant to your products/services and popular with your target audience. Then, strategically integrate those keywords into your website’s content, URLs, titles, meta descriptions, image alt text, and other SEO fields. Beyond keywords, ensure all your multimedia content follows accessibility best practices and that your site’s structure, internal linking, and other core technical elements adhere to current SEO standards.

Plan Your Q2 Content Strategy

While updating your site’s core pages will give it a solid foundation, publishing a steady stream of fresh, high-quality content is key to driving ongoing engagement and growth. Review your Q1 content performance to pinpoint what types of assets (blog posts, videos, webinars, etc.) and topics resonated most with your audience. This should inform your Q2 content roadmap and production schedule. In addition to covering hot topics and fundamentals for your industry, look for timely opportunities to create content tied to major events, holidays, trends, or seasons. Q2 is a great chance to produce spring/summer-themed posts, guides, and other assets. Be sure to map out promotional and distribution plans to amplify your content’s reach and visibility across organic and paid channels once published.

By methodically cleaning up your website, updating key pages, optimizing for search, and planning a robust content strategy for Q2, you’ll be setting your site up for continued success in the new quarter. Put in the work now, and you’ll reap the rewards of improved traffic, engagement, and conversions in the months ahead.  Do you need help getting your website in shape for Q2?  Need to do a little sprint cleaning and this post gave you momentum but you need some clarity hit that contact button above, let’s get to work.
