Reminder: Update your Copyright Date – Wildcard Friday



You may remember almost a year ago to the day, I created a video reminder to update your copyright. Well I’m back again to remind you if you haven’t added it to your 2012 to-do list. It’s an easily forgotten change that can have negative perception effects such as an outdated or ignored website, mostly from a customer’s standpoint, but possibly from a search engine’s quality perspective as well.

The correct and common ways to display your copyright:

  • Copyright 2012

  • © 2012
  • © 1997-2012
