Once a web site is created, it is the job of the web master to maintain the site so that it remains a valuable resource for the client and the client’s customers.
Maintenance is a more routine task than site design and creation, but it occupies the majority of most webmasters’ time and effort. They must update information contained on the Web site or in databases linked to the site and check the links on the site regularly to make sure that they are still working and that the information they provide is still current.
The webmaster may spend a great deal of time surfing the Web to become acquainted with new developments and ideas and to discover new pages to link to the client’s Web site.
The site itself must be checked for bugs or other problems such as images that do not load properly.
