Back In The Day..
Back when websites were in their initial stage of development, they were looked at as semi-permanent structures. They were so costly to build that little thought was given to their longevity. This notion has persisted for many year. As recently as 2012 or 2013, three years was seen as a typical website lifespan, with more static smaller businesses trying to stretch that timeframe to up to five years. So where are we today? Our website architect and WordPress developer guru, Ben Block (also a Humber and Sheridan College professor), says today the real lifespan has been shortened to as little as six months. His contention is:
“People get very tired of going back to a website that looks the same – not only its content, but also its look, its theme.”
