If your website still says “Under Construction…”

It’s almost 2020 (already!) but according to a quick Google search there are up to several million websites that still have phrases like “this site is under construction” somewhere within their pages.

Now the good news is many of the top results are other people cataloging and making fun of sites that still use that 1990’s flair.  The bad news is that some of the results are from people who are still offering new ways to say it on your website!  Unfortunately plenty of other results are sites that… still say that.  In dead earnest.  Sometimes years after their site was built!

Not to beat our own horn here at RealBasics but if your site still says “under construction” somewhere we’ll be happy to fix it for you in one of these ways

  • Delete the page for you — if you haven’t “constructed” the page by now then you probably never will.  Let us take care of that for you.
  • Finish constructing the page — maybe you’ve always meant to finish constructing the page but haven’t had time.  We’ll be happy to do that for you!
  • Do a full-scale assessment of your website and make recommendations for building a new one — if your site is old enough that someone wrote “under construction” on the pages then it may be out of date in other ways.  We’ll be happy to help you with that too!
