Find issues before they become a problem
Take a digital health check to see if your website is fit and well. Here’s what I look at:
If your website doesn’t load fast (under 3 seconds), users will leave and go somewhere else, they won’t hang around. That’s business you’re losing
If you don’t index well in Google people can’t find you. Your Search Engine Optimisation dictates how findable you are. Or aren’t, as the case may be
If your website isn’t protected it can get hacked. Worse still, it can go offline or be lost altogether. Make sure your data and code is safe and secure
Different people use websites in different ways. If you disadvantage users because of site structure, colours or layout, that’ll impact your business
People now use a range of devices to search the Internet; phones, tablets, PC's even smartwatches. Make sure your website adapts
Poorly written content can put users off. I check content for clarity to make sure your intended audience gets your message loud and clear
If your site is difficult to navigate, or content is hard to find, that's a poor user experience and people will leave. Make sure your layout and links are clear and obvious
Quite often, getting the basics right can make a marked improvement to your website performance and findability. Unless there is something really wrong with your website, remedial activity can be quick and painless.
