As mentioned in recent Web Coordinator Meetings, we’ve instituted two new elements in our website development process.

One of the new requirements is to include a marketing plan for any project coming to the Project Review Team for its initial meeting. The goal is to ensure that as new EERE websites are created, there’s an accompanying strategy for how they are promoted. Examples of marketing avenues include widgets, blog and Facebook posts, GovDelivery notifications, cross-posting on other EERE websites, etc. [More]

The Importance of Maintaining your Content

Have you reviewed your site's content lately? It may surprise you to know that readers often cut and paste content for other purposes. Are they getting the most current information?

Each EERE site area is required to have a maintenance plan to ensure that the site is up to date. A template for a maintenance plan can be found on our page about Maintenance Plans.

Maintenance is more than just fixing broken links. Regularly reviewing your content assures that your site is a reliable source for the most up-to-date data and information from your program. For more information on reviewing site content (and removing old content), refer to the page on Maintaining Content.

If you have any questions about maintenance or maintenance plans, feel free to leave a comment! [More]
