The lifespan of a website depends on several factors such as industry, technology trends, and user preferences. However, as a rule of thumb, a site should be redesigned every 2-3 years to keep up with the latest design trends, user behaviour, and search engine algorithms.
If your website is more than three years old, you will most likely experience significant benefits from building a new site. And even if it isn’t quite three years old, it may be time to consider building a new one.
Just like you replace your phone every few years because the battery starts dwindling, your storage space is running low, or everything is loading slower and slower, your website operates the same way. As technology advances, online expectations evolve, and new backend features are released, your site can’t maintain the same level of functionality as it needs to and is expected to.
And it’s not just technology; the way we engage, read and absorb information is forever changing. What worked and seemed logical 3 years ago can seem very outdated now. For your brand, this can be very damaging. It will impact your business personality and worse could affect the perception of your competences.
