Today we had all new Internet lines run into our office. For the last 3 weeks or so we have been having intermittent connection to the Internet. We had the cable company come after checking our lines and change the modem. All was starting to work right and then we had some issues again.
Today's repairman made no exceptions when it came to making sure we were done correctly when he left. From the time he arrived he let me explain the problem and he came to the conclusion that we run 100% new wires all the way up to the pole outside the house. I took the time to help him and he appreciated it. He went on to tell me what the previous repairman did and the shortcuts he took.
He went on to explain to me that his bosses will be driving by in a few days to make sure that he did the job correctly and he wanted to be sure they could just look from their car and know he did a good job. He was proud of the job he did and he knew it. He also knew that I appreciated the work he was doing. He didn't want to bother cleaning up the guys mess that was before him. He changed everything so that he knew it would work and he also didn't want to come back and fix it again. He is also sleeping well tonight knowing that my Internet is working. It is the same way with building websites!
Build Your Website Right
I am constantly asked about changing websites once they are built. For some crazy reason I get asked by affiliates if they should go back and change their websites every time there is a Google algorithm change. If there is something I hate it is going back and making changes to existing pages. I frankly see no reason to change pages to try to keep up with Google or any search engine for that matter.
I have one person (Yes you Sharon) that always ask me if she should go back and change page whenever I tell her something that is wrong with one of the new pages she shows me. It is usually something so minor that it isn't really that smart to waste enough time going back to change all the pages on your site. It is actually not a good idea to have all the pages optimized on your site the same way anyway. One change of the algorithm and all of your site becomes dead. No one wants that!
I would rather spend time developing new pages and moving on then looking back. I suggest that you do the same.
