Do I have to take my attorney website down in order to update it or perform maintenance?

Whenever possible, it is best to avoid taking your website offline. When your website is down, potential clients who find you are likely to be frustrated—and they’re also unlikely to come back later when your site is available again. Additionally, frequent downtime could end up hurting your Google rankings. 

However, we all know that keeping your site properly maintained and updated is one of the keys to ranking highly with Google and other search engines. So what happens if you need to add an update or perform some kind of offline maintenance? For the most part, you should be able to prepare your updates ahead of time and update your site without ever taking it down—it all depends on how your attorney website is handled. 

If your attorney website is with Foster Web Marketing, then you have access to our powerful Dynamic Self-Syndication™ (DSS™), which lets you update your website at any time—without any downtime for your visitors! You (or anyone in your office) can change your practice pages, add new practice pages, delete pages, update your blog, or add an article, even during your heaviest traffic times. 

If, for some reason, you must take your website down for maintenance, keep in mind that it is best to do this during low-traffic times and keep the downtime as short as possible.
