What is Involved in Maintaining Nebraska Websites

We view website maintenance to be a reactive support service that provides your Nebraska business with the appropriate web developer resources to solve nearly any website problem. These are some examples of website issues that Nebraska web support companies might fix:

  • Updating your website platform.
  • Installing app or plugin updates to improve security and functionality.
  • Adding new pages whenever you release something new.
  • Staying fresh with new blog content.
  • Rearranging your Nebraska site's navigation menu.
  • Improve your page speed to pass Google Core Web Vitals.
  • Taking backups of your website's files and databases.
  • Changing the look and feel of your website.
  • Troubleshooting Google Search Console coverage issues.
  • Improving technical SEO by adding structured data, open graph tags, etc.
  • Providing a solution to any other website problem.

These are just a few of the Nebraska web maintenance services we offer. In fact, Nebraska web maintenance is basically anything a web developer or digital marketer does to your website.

Reactive Nebraska Website Support

The reason we consider website maintenance to be a reactive service is that most Nebraska website owners wouldn't want a web developer going into their website and changing things around without their knowledge. You can count on our firm to keep your Nebraska website running smoothly. However, we can offer some proactive Nebraska website support services.

Who Needs Website Maintenance in Nebraska

At some point in time, every Nebraska website will require some form of web support. It's just that the internet changes all the time. However, we don't charge a lot for Nebraska website support, so you'll be able to afford it! Here are some common reasons why a website in Nebraska might require web maintenance services:

  • Hosting companies sometimes upgrade their servers, removing PHP versions that were used by your Nebraska website. This means you have to refactor your app or upgrade to a newer framework that supports the new PHP version. There's no way you can expect custom web functionality to work forever.
  • In order to focus on maintaining the newer version of an ecommerce platform or content management system, they eventually have to deprecate the previous releases. This recently happened to Magento 1.x ecommerce store owners who were forced to migrate to Magento 2.x, or an alternative ecommerce platform, because Magento 1.x had reached an “End of Life” status and would no longer be maintained or updated by Magento. As a result, Magento 1.x ecommerce businesses in Nebraska were looking for ecommerce developers to help migrate their websites.
  • Whenever a website owner falls victim to malware or some other form of malicious activity, the website needs to be cleaned of malware and reviewed for security exploits. This can be a time-consuming activity, and often happens because the website owner wasn't being mindful of the first two web maintenance examples, listed above.
  • To ensure future visitors to your Nebraska website receive accurate information about your organization, products, or services, your Nebraska website content needs to be refreshed. Maintaining your Nebraska website is key to making sure it's working for you.

Above and beyond just updating something, there are plenty of reasons why a website might need maintenance. When planning budgets and schedules for website maintenance and support, consider your Nebraska business's potential future needs.

How We Perform Nebraska Web Support

We have an experienced website support team who puts forth great effort to understand your maintenance needs, schedule your work in a timely fashion, and follow up with your Nebraska business after the tasks have been completed.

Most Nebraska web maintenance services start with an email from the website owner. Your email gets routed to our ticket system and automatically gets assigned to your project manager. From there, anyone on our team can work on the ticket without delay, leading to faster turnaround time and simplified internal communication.

Phone or live chat requests follow a similar process to Nebraska website maintenance. We route the support request to the most appropriate web developer on our team based on the nature of the work needed on your website.

Example Web Support Service List for Nebraska Businesses

We are often asked for detailed examples of Nebraska website support requests that might come up after the launch of a website. We've performed these Nebraska web maintenance services in the past, and would be happy to do it for you too!

Simple Nebraska Website Updates

A simple change to your Nebraska website might include updating a paragraph on a page, swapping out an image, or adding a new page. Keeping content fresh for search engines and visitors is just normal, routine web maintenance.

Nebraska Site Performance Improvements

Let us check your Nebraska website for hosting, caching, image optimization, console errors, broken links, poor database queries, and other potential problems that might be impacting your page speed. It'll help improve page load times, which will make users and search engines happy.

Platform Upgrades / Security Patches

It's important to keep your Nebraska website updated if it runs on a CMS like WordPress. Updates help improve security and functionality - and they're usually quick, so it might be a simple task.

Plugin / Extension Updates

It's important to update plugins and extensions on your Nebraska website if they were developed and maintained by a third-party. It's similar to updating the CMS platform since it helps patch security and functionality issues.

Fixing Search Console Issues

Has Google Search Console told you there's a coverage problem? If so, we can review the coverage issues, fix the problems, and update you on the results. Make Google happy, and you'll rank higher throughout Nebraska and beyond!

Implement Structured Data

Have you ever noticed information like reviews or product prices in the listing of a Google organic search result? This is structured data, which is a standardized way of describing content on the web, whether it's a local business in Nebraska or an ecommerce product.

Implement Open Graph on Your Website

By adding Open Graph Tags to your website, digital platforms can better understand the content of your page, which improves its appearance on social media.

Implement Google Tag Manager

Are you interested in adding Google Tag Manager to your website to help you manage custom scripts more easily? No problem at all! We'll happily install Google Tag Manager on your Nebraska website and teach you how to use it.

Implement Conversion Tracking

It's important to setup conversion tracking for your Nebraska website if you want to understand the benefits of online advertising. Then you'll know where your conversions come from, whether it be direct traffic, organic search, or paid ads.

Image Compression (Optimization)

Do you have a Nebraska website that's slow because of large images? No problem at all! All your images can be compressed by our tools, and we can even setup recurring compression for newly added images!

Integrate a Live Chat

Do you want to try live chat on your website? Our experts can help you pick the right live chat system, install the tracking code, and customize the design to match your Nebraska business branding!

Resolve Errors in Log Files

Are your error_log files big? If you're getting recurring error messages, we can update programming code or fix platform issues.

Integrate reCaptcha on Contact Forms

If spambots are attacking your Nebraska website, we can setup a checkbox or invisible reCaptcha to help minimize unwanted submissions on your forms.

Setup a Caching Plugin

Are you interested in installing a caching plugin in your Nebraska website, but not sure how to properly configure the settings for best website performance? We can help recommend caching plugins, or just install and configure them for you!

Setup SMTP Email

To help improve email deliverability, we can configure your contact form and website platform to send emails through an SMTP account instead of PHP mail.

Restrict IP Addresses

Is your Nebraska website being bombarded with fake orders, contact submissions or live chats from a specific network? We can help setup IP restrictions to prevent malicious traffic from interacting with your website.

Create Website Backups

Do you want to create a backup of your Nebraska website? We can help you create one-time or scheduled backups that store locally or at an offsite location.

Create a Development Website

It is often recommended that you setup a development or staging website before proceeding with a major upgrade or extension installation. If you'd like help creating and managing that development / staging site, just let us know!

Implement A/B Testing

Do you prefer to make design changes based on statistical data regarding how users interact with your Nebraska web page? If so, we can help you implement A/B testing to gather data to help inform you of the best choice between two or more design layouts.

Create 301 Redirects

Are you launching a new website or removing pages from your website? You should create 301 redirects for your Nebraska website. We've seen businesses in and around Nebraska lose huge amounts of organic traffic due to widespread broken pages. We can help you create 301 redirects within .htaccess files, nginx templates, and CMS platforms.

Provide Website Training

Do you need help learning how to make changes to your Nebraska website? If your Nebraska site was developed in a platform we work within, such as WordPress, Shopify or BigCommerce, we'll be happy to help!

The Platforms We Maintain for Nebraska Websites

We have a diverse team of web designers and web developers, for Nebraska businesses, who have been immersed in multiple website platforms over the years. Nevertheless, mastering a handful of platforms is better than trying to be an expert on everything. Because of that, we tend to service only these platforms for Nebraska websites:

In the past, we provided website maintenance and support for Joomla and Magento platforms of Nebraska businesses. However, we chose not to use those platforms so our web support experts could focus on training and support within the more popular platforms.

Questions to Ask Nebraska Website Support Firms

Before signing up for any Nebraska web maintenance package, it is important to ask the Nebraska website maintenance company some questions about how their services work. By doing this, you'll be able to better understand your relationship with the Nebraska web support team before you give them money or give them access to your website. You can ask these simple questions:

  • How do you handle website security? Do you run security scans of customer websites?
  • What's the turnaround time for Nebraska website support?
  • Is your Nebraska web maintenance outsourced?
  • How much might it cost to maintain an average Nebraska website?
  • Are there minimum deductions or minimum billable expenses for Nebraska website updates?
  • What are your normal hours of operation?
  • When there are new updates on my platform, will you let me know?

If you ask these questions to a Nebraska website services firm, you'll gain a better understanding of the future relationship, the security of your website, and the turnaround time for important maintenance requests.

Nebraska Web Support Plans and Tips

We are often asked for a website support plan by larger companies in and around Nebraska looking to establish routines and procedures within their IT department. Whether it's your website, hosting, or domain name, we'll make sure your Nebraska business has a web maintenance plan to ensure optimum performance.

Read through this list of annual Nebraska web maintenance tasks to consider:

  • Ask your web hosting company if they have newer servers you can migrate to.
  • Ask your web developer if your website has a major platform release coming up that will require a lot of work to install.
  • Try restoring a website backup to make sure the data is good enough for a full recovery. Also, make sure your backups are stored somewhere else besides Nebraska.
  • Take a look at the websites of your competitors (even those outside Nebraska) to see if you're missing out on anything.
  • Take a look at your website's security to make sure nothing's been compromised.
  • Verify structured data, open graph, and social links are all working properly.
  • Remove any unnecessary 3rd party tracking, live chat, or heat map scripts that may have been installed in the past.
  • Take down any unnecessary development or staging sites.

Here is a list of semi-annual Nebraska website maintenance tasks to consider:

  • Make sure you have access to your domain name and it's not about to expire. When you have to renew your domain name, this will come in handy.
  • Check that your hosting account isn't about to expire and you can access it.
  • Make sure you have access to your DNS.
  • Make sure your SSL certificate isn't expiring soon.
  • Verify your website backup schedule is working properly, and you have remote backups outside of Nebraska.
  • If you have an automated image optimization service, verify it is working properly.
  • Make sure the website doesn't throw any console errors.

Here are a list of monthly Nebraska web support tasks to review:

  • Ensure your website doesn't have any broken links, which affect user experience and SEO.
  • Check your website for performance issues after recent updates or changes.
  • See if there's anything wrong being reported within Google Search Console.
  • Keep your website fresh by updating your content within one of your service pages or blog articles.
  • Check if there are available platform or extension updates.

The Cost of Website Support Service in Nebraska

The starting price for our Nebraska website maintenance services is $119.50/hour, but we offer discounts for pre-purchased blocks of time that bring the rate as low as $99.95/hour. We also offer website management for Nebraska websites, starting at $50/month, if you'd like the peace of mind knowing a company is proactively upgrading your site. For Nebraska businesses with mission-critical applications, we offer emergency Nebraska website support subscriptions, starting at $495/month, to extend our availability into nights & weekends.

To get started, if you are new to our web maintenance company, we'll need you to pre-purchase a block of time which includes a discount on our hourly rate. If you are an existing client in Nebraska, you are welcome to choose monthly billing at our higher hourly rate or continue to pre-purchase time and receive discounted hourly rates for your website updates.

If you pre-purchase a block of time for your Nebraska web maintenance services, you will be happy to know there are no contracts, there are no hidden fees, the time never expires, and there are no minimum deductions for small website update requests. Please keep in mind we rarely see tasks take less than 10 minutes, since the process of reviewing an email or taking a phone call, checking on whatever was asked, providing some form of feedback, and then logging the task usually takes at least 10 minutes of time. To keep you informed of the time usage on your pre-purchased block of web maintenance time, you will receive a monthly email update letting you know how much time remains on your account.

What is Considered Billable Time?

When talking with prospective Nebraska website maintenance clients, we are often asked what is considered billable time. You will find the answers to vary greatly within the website support industry. In some situations, you may find a website maintenance company in Nebraska to charge a much higher hourly rate, but not bill out for communication and organization. Likewise, there are website support companies in Nebraska who charge a more affordable hourly rate, but also bill out for most communication and organization. This is the approach we take. To help provide clarification, let's go over some examples of what we consider billable time when it comes to maintaining and supporting your Nebraska website.

Here are examples of what is considered billable time:

  • Reading through lengthy emails to understand what is being requested.
  • Preparing responses to lengthy or complex email messages.
  • Helping you figure out your domain name or web hosting provider.
  • Scheduling your website maintenance to be completed by the best team member.
  • Talking with you on the phone about ideas or tasks you want to discuss.
  • Reviewing completed work for quality control purposes.
  • Providing you training on how to handle administrative tasks.
  • Researching unique solutions to difficult questions you present our team.
  • Providing more detailed time usage reports, beyond the automated monthly update email.
  • Helping you figure out email client issues within Microsoft Outlook, Apple Mail, etc.
  • Almost any other task not specifically mentioned in the list below.

Here are examples of what is not considered billable time:

  • Talking with you about personal matters, such as the weather, a recent vacation, or a sporting event.
  • Responding to simple email messages that don't require research or lengthy feedback.
  • Handling accounting-related tasks, such as invoice generation, payment confirmations, etc.
