6 Processes Of Testing Websites Before Publishing
In my previous article, I have looked at some of the factors that should be considered when you need to host your website. In this article I want to talk about six processes of testing websites before publishing. Follow me as we are going to look at that together in this article.
In many of my previous articles, I have already established the fact that your website is your mobile office. You should note that the type of attention that you have to pay to your normal physical office should give to your website as well. You need to check and be sure that all components are working properly before you will release your website to the production environment. Now, let’s look at some of the components that you need to consider in this article.
#1 Links and spelling errors
One of the major tests that you need to consider to check your website for links and spelling errors. You need to make sure that all the links are resolving to the right website. You also need to vet your pages and your posts and be sure that there are no spelling or grammatical errors.
This will convince your audience that you are the type that pays much attention to details. Once there are errors, your audience might assume that you are not customer-centric in nature. You would not want to send the wrong signal to your potential prospects and customers.
#2 Stress Test
One of the major test that you need to carry out on your website is a stress test. You need to consider if your website will not go offline or break down if there are many people visiting your website at the same time. You have to find out how much traffics that your website can withstand at the same time. This will help you to determine whether you need to change your hosting provider or hosting package or not.
#3 Complete website process
Also, when you need to create a website for users and you are about to test the functionality of your website. You need to make sure that you complete the entire process on your own and be sure that you are able to complete the process before you release the entire website to end users. This will allow you to understand some of the challenges that your users might likely faced when they are performing actions on your website.
#4 Usability and accessibility
Also, you need to check your website for usability and accessibility. You have to be sure that your website is user friendly. The Tabs and the Pages as well as the categories should be well arranged so that users can easily find what they are looking for. This will definitely reduce the bounce rates and encourages users to stay longer on your website.
#5 Try buying a product
If you have created an e-commerce website, you need to try to buy a product. You have to select products, add them to a cart page and pay for that product. This will help you to determine whether the product is secured or not. You have to be sure that users are secured when they are trying to make payments on your website.
#6 Customer support function
Also, when it comes to testing a website, you need to make sure that you have an excellent customer support team that has the right tools to work with. You have to make sure that you analyse all of the tools and be sure that they are working the way they are supposed to work. You should note that if you have the wrong customer support tools, you are going to have a high rate of abandoned carts.
