The Sad State of the Small Biz Web
from: Website Magazine
UK Web hosting provider Streamline.net‘s latest “Small Business Bytes Survey” has revealed some discouraging information.
That is a pretty sad statistics for the small business Web workers and signifies that many companies continue to struggle in maintaining their web presence. Some other alarming results from the survey:
- 1 in 4 companies admit to updating their websites on a monthly basis,
- over half (54 per cent) admitted to making technical tweaks only ‘infrequently,’
- one third of companies surveyed use only a single domain name, and three quarters own less than 6 domains
- nearly half of firms (48 per cent) are not currently advertising on search engines
- 1 in 3 (34 per cent) are unable to quantify the popularity of their website as they do not look at their visitor numbers”

How many domains do you own? Are you advertising on search engines? Are you able to quantify the popularity of your website?
