Surprising Costs Revealed for Manual Website Maintenance

A complied report discloses the amount of average errors and high costs to maintain quality websites for UK and US law and accounting firms.

Minneapolis, MN, September 03, 2011 --( Most websites have errors such as broken links and misspellings. For law and accounting firms, these errors may cost more than time and manual labor but a loss in potential clients. Siteimprove complied data from their service called SiteCheck. SiteCheck is a cost effective solution hosted by Siteimprove that automatically checks your website every five days for errors. The service ran website checks with 50 law and accountancy firms and kept the run at 2,000 webpages. Siteimprove saw an average of 45 broken links and 30 misspellings. Steve Hennigs, Account Executive with Siteimprove in Minneapolis, stated; “It is important for firms to exercise quality work and attention to detail. Errors like broken links and misspellings on the website reflect poorly on the firm in both of these areas. By increasing the focus on website governance these types of mistakes can usually be avoided.”

When law and accounting firms add up web maintenance expenses on items listed above, the price is staggering. The cost of web maintenance can easily reach $3,000 per month. Siteimprove recommends organizations to employ a website governance strategy and utilize tools like SiteCheck to automate otherwise manual tasks in a more efficient and cost friendly manner.
