Glossary » website maintenance

website maintenance

long-term support and growth of a website, which may involve: adding new materials, adding new categories and adjusting the organization and navigation, technical support, configuring to support new browsers and internet standards, updating the look, correcting and updating information, etc.

A highly-usable website design can easily drift into an unusable system as it grows and reorganizes unless considerable effort is placed in maintaining and supporting that growth. A style guide and usability guidelines can be prepared to minimize the drift as the site is updated.
