How does a Web developer keep his or her pages looking fresh?

Savvy Web Developers Watch Page Footers

One of the easiest ways to tell if a Web site has been updated recently is to check the bottoms of its pages. Many sites include page footers with their copyright dates. Unfortunately, webmasters often forget to change the date each year, making their sites look outdated to users.

Part of being a savvy freelance Web developer is being aware of little details such as the importance of updated page footers. Page footers often include contact information to reach the webmaster, as well as a date/time stamp to determine when the page was last modified. If a Web developer forgets to update the page footer, the Web site falls in danger of looking stale to readers.
