Listen to this blog post:

why-my-website-sucks1. Did your competitor recently get a new website?

What do you think is going to happen if a potential buyer of your services visits your site and their brand spanking new website? You only have a few seconds to impress somebody, so make the best of it.

2. You don't like to give your website out because you are embarrassed of it.

You hear yourself making excuses to people about your site, trying to deflect potential criticism.

3. You have no blog, and no social media integration.

It's pretty important that your site remain fresh, meaning it has content updated on a regular basis. Websites are not 'set it and forget it' projects. Thesmall business social media search engines love new content, and what better way to get new content than to write blog posts. Your customers are using social media, let them share your content with their friends, YOUR potential customers.

4. You use old or clunky technology such as Flash.

Ever went to a flash website? It loads, and loads and loads, and finally comes up? Were you happy with that experience? Probably not. More than likely, unless you had to go to that particular site, you went somewhere else. Not to mention Flash based websites are not search engine friendly, making it harder to rank for your relevant keywords.

5. You aren't getting visitors, and if you are, you have a high bounce rate.

(If you aren't keeping track of your bounce rate, you need to). Part of the reason you aren't getting many visitors could be because the search engines can't find you. It could also be that people have went to your site before and had a bad experience.

6. Bland content

Do you have a strong, compelling reason for people to 1) stay on your site, 2) buy your product or service? If not, why even have a website?

7. When you pull up your website on a smartphone, it looks like garbage

It's been estimated that nearly 40% of web traffic is on a mobile device. Who wants to visit a bad site that is slow to load, certain segments don't load, other parts don't line up right, and they are spending half their time pinching and zooming? I know I don't like it.
