Everyone makes a mistake, a few learn from them and the few who absorb them well are really able to move forward and make an impact. Those are the people who really make a difference and become a trailblazer. Drupal web developers are no more any exception to the trait. Though some mistakes often go unnoticed, some make little influence, there are a few that can really derail the business endeavor.

Here is a list of 6 mistakes a Drupal web development company must avoid while crafting the digital presence of a business.

1. Poor Content Architecture

Like everywhere else, presentation matters a lot to your web audience. It makes them turn head, listen to what you say and,
if the content is persuasive enough, it drives them to take actions that you want. Unfortunately, due to poor management of a Drupal development project, the website may end up containing wrong containers for placing content. A greater emphasis should be on using standard templates, content types, and fields so as to content look great.

2. Incorrect Drupal Version

Getting started, probably, in a haste with a wrong Drupal version will do no good, rather, it will deteriorate the look, charm and capacity of the Drupal website. To stay relevant to your audience make sure t
o use the latest Drupal version. Got an older version? No issue, take refuge of a reliable Drupal web development company to update or upgrade it.

3. Unnecessary Coding

Drupal community has got a rich pool of modules and themes. A collection of over 35, 000 modules and 2, 300 themes is there to let you make a choice. Hence, hardly, you need to do coding of your own. Moreover, these modules and themes are well tested to make sure they stay W3
C compliant and deliver the best digital experience across all devices, irrespective of sizes and models.

4. Skipping Spam Control

Web has become a channel to propagate spam and deceptive communication too, hence, it becomes a must for a Drupal web development company to adopt the right spam control. Not doing so, can have serious repercussions. Search engines like Google and Bing often ban sites th
at don’t adopt the right spam control functionality. Spamming also slows down a website and make it less accessible to users.

5. Ignoring Website Backup Plan

Precaution is better than cure. The term is a cliched one, but its relevance remains intact. Going with the right backup strategy can help you to cope with unpleasant situations or risks like website crash, hack, code manipulation or data loss. A Drupal web development company mus
t adopt an effective website backup strategy to store database and its core and non-core files.

6. Bypassing SEO Tools

Analysis. Reporting. Optimization. No digital marketing strategy can survive without them. However, there is a greater irony, 95% of the business heads or decision makers sans these so-called SEO skills. Thankfully, Drupal has got a fix and you can too, provided the Drupal web development company you have hired is pretty serious at what they do. Drupal facilities a complete SEO module packed with keyword research, content optimization, content tagging, link management along with other tools to ensure better visibility of a website in search results.
