Why or do I need to add a copyright to my website?

I did something different this time around when I built my website. When looking at the footer and how to design and what to add to it. I considered the traditional copyright 2014 Elijah Clark. All rights reserved.

Then I asked myself why I was added it. The answer was that I really didn’t know. I became so used to adding it by default to my own and others websites that it had stuck with me.

Nonetheless, I really never knew why. Do I add it because I’m supposed to? Do I have it to make my site look professional or am I adding it to simply scare people off so that they don’t copy the text?

Either way, after research, I’ve found that there is no real reason to have it at all. The fact is that as long as I’m the first to publish the content, then I own the rights anyway. A website has a great track record of changes and my site content, so I don’t really need the copyright for any protection purposes. People will steal content with or without the text.

So, next. Am I doing it to look professional? Well, I think I did at one point. When backlinking was big and I wanted to add my name next to my clients copyright notice with a link back to my site, it made perfect sense. It was branding. My name didn’t look out of place then. Nonetheless, now that a backlink is deemed bad if it’s coming from a new non-nitch website, I no longer add my name or link.

Either way. No one really cares about the copyright. It scares no one and you aren’t going to lose a client because of it.

From a technical standpoint, the law eliminated the requirement of public notice in 1989. So, it isn’t necessary and up to you on whether Or not you want to include it.

11 Landing Page Must Haves

  1. The ability to pass the 3-5 second blink test. Meaning, will someone after looking at the land page remember what is being offered and why it is being offered?
  2. A gripping headline with clear and concise messaging that draws the visitor in.
  3. Because visuals are understood faster than text, infographic(s) or image(s) must be relevant as well as persuasive. In other words, the graphics must match so that an offer becomes tangible.
  4. lear targeted copy, free of garble goop, and irresistible. Put another way, the content copy has to entice a visitor to take action.
  5. No unnecessary navigation because once visitors notice it, it will distract them from following through with a desired action.
  6. Forms need to be easy, clear, and designed to encourage fill me. Only ask a visitor to supply what is necessary to follow-up.
  7. Don’t forget to include social share icons; however, the quality of the content will determine if it is deemed worthy to be shared by a visitor. In other words, poor content will not be socially shared.
  8. Make the privacy policy easily accessible because visitors are entitled to know what someone is going to do with their information.
  9. The submit button should scream a strong call-to-action, and don’t forget that the color of the button matters as well.
  10. Do display valid testimonials and third party seals of approval near key areas. Keep in mind that the bottom of the page may not be optimal.
  11. Have a unique “Thank You” page for each landing page that conveys assurances for why the visitor had to supply information, and provide access to what is being offer. It is here where links can be provided to other sections of the website.
