Hey au pairs, nannies, and tutors!
We want to show you a handy trick today: finding out how old a company’s website is. Why does this matter? Because a company that’s been around for a long time is often seen as more reliable. If you know when a website started, you can tell if a company is truly as experienced as they say they are.
Why Should You Look Up a Website’s Age?
Imagine you’re looking for a great company to work for, and you see one that says, “We’ve been helping families since 2001.” That sounds impressive, right? But is it true? Knowing how to check the age of their website can help you find out.
Why It’s Important For You
It’s all about being smart and safe when choosing a company to join. If you can check how old their website is, you’ll be better at spotting the companies that have been around for a long time and aren’t just making things up.
Easy Steps to Check a Website’s Age
First, look up the company’s website on Google and then click the three dots next to the name.
Check the Date:
Google might tell you when it first found the website. Look for something that says, “Indexed by Google X years ago” under the website link.
Use Special Tools:
There are tools online that can tell you when a website first popped up. Just type in the website’s name, and you’ll get an idea of how old it is.
Understand What You Find:
The date you find might not be the exact day the company started, but it gives you a clue. Sometimes a business might have been around for a while but only made their website later.
A Real-Life Example:
We used to be called ‘That Sassy Life Coach,’ which Google first found in 2016. Now we’re ‘The Au Pair Club.’ Our company’s been here for more than 9 years, even though our new website is just beginning. You can trust us just the same.
Knowing this stuff helps you see which companies are legit and have a long history. Use these tips, and you’ll be able to make better choices about where you want to work, and who you trust to train and place you as an Au Pair or Nanny. Remember, you can learn a lot about a company by looking at their website’s history. Stay smart and informed!
Hope this helps, and happy job hunting!
