So far, website designing has created furore in the IT industry. The reason being it has been claimed as an effective and affordable marketing tool by business marketers. Strangely, many believe that they are over with their duty once they've got their business website designed by a designer or a company.

Website Maintenance is a broader term and includes many a things. From updating website content, to making tweaks in to the design of the website after some time comes under website maintenance. Maintaining the credibility of the website is also a significant part of website maintenance that most of the business owners usually ignore. For websites that have an option of user comments or feedback generally require content moderation.
There are many such platforms where business organizations promote their brand like forums, social networking sites, chat rooms, message boards and many others that work on the basis of regular feedback or comments. And it is only here the idea of content abuse comes to the fore. The websites that are always found loaded with comments demand moderation, infact maintenance.
Role of Content Moderators
Moderators are the only solution to it. Whether you do it yourself or avail the services from a company offering professional content moderation of website content, but your website needs it. Moderators make sure that the safety of a website is maintained. They remove any reproachful remarks or comments that show criticism or pose a threat to the business or brand image.
What is done under Content Moderation?
When moderators begin the task of moderating content of the website, they ensure that the comments or feedback posted on the client's website adhere to legal issues, copyright concerns and are in accordance to the content management practices.
Their prime objective is to maintain the website honor and make the website safe and engaging. To authenticate content of the website, they make sure that all the posted information, remarks or comments are as per website's defined guidelines.
Moderators offer absolute technical and customer support. They rip out everything they feel might damage the reputation of the company, but do it maintaining business attitude and professionalism.
