  1.  Website sucks – it is old (more than 5 years old is really old), it is not mobile friendly, it is way too wordy, or you have competition that just look better then you – you know that your website sucks.   Here is really the bottom line though,  Does your website bring in sales, leads, and interest to your business?  Even if it is pretty but it is not generating some revenue then your website also sucks.

Now they just doubled down and gave customers a bigger reason never to buy from you.  Reviews, accurate business information, and social media activity impact a business’s reputation and influences whether a consumer decides to do business with you.
