Before your Website Goes Live in 2016…

If you’re launching a new website this New Year, here are a few checks, we, at Web Design High Wycombe recommend you carry out before your site goes live:

  1. Review the spelling and grammar of all content across your site.
  2. Ensure you website is compatible across different browsers (e.g. Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox, Safari etc.)
  3. Anyone launching a website should be aware of the importance of search engine optimisation; before launch ensure Meta data and descriptions are included for all pages and posts. (However following launch it’s vital you continue to optimise your site to improve your site ranking in search engines).
  4. Ensure a site map has been created and published for your site.

  9. Ensure links to your social media pages are in place.
  10. Conduct some user testing to ensure site navigation is user friendly and the speed at which pages load is acceptable. If a page takes longer than 2 seconds to load, improvement is needed.
