New Day New Year 2013 Website Copyright

As we enter the bright potential of the New Year don't forget to update the copyright notice on your web site to 2013. A small but important task, it shows your customer that you keep your website "fresh".  In addition, search engines read a current date as an indication of a well maintained site which improves your SEO (Search Engine Optimization) rankings. Just update the date on every main page with a copyright date. This is easy to do.

I include the first year of publication and this calendar year. I found examples on websites for major manufacturers done this way. Figured if the big bucks companies do it this way it was good enough for me.

I was looking at major websites on New Year's Eve 2012. They all said will be interesting to see when they change the date to 2013.
