If the content is not changed, then the web spiders may bookmark your website and gradually it will go down on the search engines list.

Important : Before doing so ensure that this should not discomfort the regular visitors, if there are some important information that your visitor expect every time they land on website, do not change it or update it in a style that is not drastic.

Web design :
