Welcome to the Web Development Sitecore Resource Page. Maintaining the Endicott website is a team effort. For you as a content editor this means focusing your attention on your area of responsibility for the website. At certain times of the year more of your attention is required. The weeks prior to each semester is one such period of time. Now is a critical time for you to review and update content, along with reestablishing your role as a content editor. Here are some things for you to consider and to perform:

    • Review your pages to make sure that all content is up-to-date
    • Remove content that is dated
    • Check your links (both in the navigation bar and within pages)
    • Review the keywords and description section of each page in Sitecore to see that they are accurate vis-vis the current content – “you” can improve your SEO (search engine optimization)
    • Make sure that you are receiving information from your content providers – facultystaff, students, alumni
    • Review your SiteImprove reports to improve your pages broken links, spelling, etc.
