For those of us who own a car in the UK, the MOT test is an annual check of vehicle safety, exhaust emissions and general roadworthiness. MOTs are due on most vehicles over three years old. It can be a bit nerve racking, especially for older cars, as to whether the car will pass. If you’ve looked after your car and had it regularly serviced, chances are it will pass the MOT with no issues, you can breathe a sigh of relief, and not worry about it again for another year. And if it doesn’t pass, you need to get it fixed. Why does it matter? Because if the car is safe to drive it protects you, other motorists, and pedestrians.
While the MOT is a legal requirement for your vehicle, there is obviously no legal requirement for your website to be MOT’d (or whatever the equivalent would be). But in the same way you want your car to be safe, you should make sure your website is safe and compliant with the latest demands of Search Engines like Google.
The things we’d look at with your Website Maintenance include:
- Does your website load quickly? What is your page load speed? This is something that can significantly affect your Search Engine Ranking Position (SERP) on platforms like Google and Bing.
- Does your website meet the latest standards for mobile responsiveness? Most people look at websites on smartphones or tablets nowadays, so your website needs to look good on these devices.
- Is the data you’re collecting helping your business to be successful? We can help set up and train you on Google Analytics so you can see which pages people view the most, and we can also look at your Call To Actions (is it easy for your customers to contact you?)
- Is your website hosted in a secure location and fully patched with all the latest security updates?

Much like the MOT for your vehicle, if everything is fine you can breathe a sigh of relief and not worry about it for a while. But if there are some things that need fixing, wouldn’t you rather know and get them fixed?
