Facts about How to make the page “Site under reconstruction”
If the site needs to be closed for some time for users to access in connection with any work to change it, you usually have to create a special page “ Site under reconstruction ”, notifying visitors that the site is temporarily unavailable, and inviting you to go to the site later. How to make such a page so as not to lose regular visitors to the site and not scare away new users? The page “Site under reconstruction” among webmasters is usually called a stub. Such a stub on the site is necessary in those cases when the changes introduced on the site too deeply affect its structure or design because in such a period the site simply cannot be shown to users: the pages may “go” layout, the content may be missing, etc.
A stub on the site is needed not only during the deep redesign of the existing site but also when the domain name for it was already purchased and parked in advance before the site was published on the Internet. The fact is that in this case, Internet users, when they try to enter the site, will see a standard message from the hoster stating that the domain is registered in the interests of a certain person or company: such a message will not tell visitors what will be discussed site, what the site can do, etc.
Site under reconstruction.
A correctly created “Site under reconstruction” page will help keep regular visitors and not scare away new ones, and, very importantly, help the site to be properly indexed and ranked by search engines. For example, Google’s search engine experts note that sites that instead of regular content pages only have a “Site under reconstruction” page with a standard message from the host, the algorithms of this search engine either do not index at all or do not rank high, as it is believed, and quite rightly that the presence of such sites in the first positions of search results will not be useful to users.
But if the page “Site under reconstruction” contains a unique thematic text containing keywords, then in this case, as explained by Google, the search system will be able to process the page in normal mode and will not remove the site from the index. Search robots will continue to visit the site, and as soon as it again begins to work in full mode, they will immediately begin to actively index it. And site visitors, having seen the relevant thematic text on the stub page, will be able to understand why the site is unavailable for a while and will be able to find out when the site will return to work.
If, from the point of view of search engines, it is important to include text with thematic keywords in the “Site under reconstruction” page, then from the point of view of ordinary users, sometimes just a text explaining the reasons for the temporary inoperability of the site may not be enough. Therefore, it is important to pay attention to the correct design of the stub page.
For example, to enable users to learn about the resumption of the site as soon as possible, you can put a subscription form on the page “Site under reconstruction”. A user will immediately receive a message to the user’s e-mail specified in this form after resuming the operation of the site. Instead of the subscription form, you can place a special counter on the stub page: it will show how much time is left until the completion of the “repair” work on the site.
Even by all the rules, the created and designed “Site under reconstruction” page may turn out to be useless if the actual reconstruction of the site is too long delayed or turns out to be ineffective.
