For optimisation process, every page must be accurately categorised and described in all areas; titles, headings, meta-tags etc. The auditor will assess page URLs, image file names and Alt text, heading and paragraph relevancy and hyperlinks & titles within those paragraphs.

    Start by making a list of every feature you would like on your new website. Then, consider which features will help you meet or exceed your website goals as well as the needs and preferences of your site visitors. Categorize all the features into separate lists for “must have”, “want to have” and “nice to have”. Example features include blog, direc-tory, events calendar, file sharing, password protected pages or any custom features. Visitor’s perspective; auditors will assess if the intent and purpose of the website clearly evident on the Home page for a 1st-time visitor. Is the content easy to skim, find and understand the salient points without difficulty? Are contact details easy to find, and do they include multiple means for a visitor to communicate with you. Site owners perspective; examine if the website incorporates an easy-to-use site administration interface that provides simple mechanisms for the website owner to make changes?



    When visitors reach your website they will need to very quickly under-stand who you are, what you do, if you can help them and why they should stay on your website (and ultimately buy).
