Essential Checks To Make Before Launching Your Site
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Starting a new website can provide a lot of excitement. This is really holds true if you have taken a lot of time to make it appealing and relevant for your specified target group. However, in the midst of all the excitement one can easily forget the importance of making last minute checks to make sure everything's okay. Quite naturally, when more traffic comes to your site, you will want to utilize it all for your own purposes. The first view is also the last view. So, if you do not make the correct last minute updates before starting your site, you might have problems.

One of the top tools most webmaster's use is an analytics tool. Installing this tool will provide you with very useful information about your website. There are many different analytics tools, each provides basically the same information, such as: Traffic sources - exactly how people are finding your website, Popular pages, World Map - showing where visitors are located, Top Exit Pages - the pages people leave your site from most often, etc. Undeniably the most powerful analytics tool available to website owners is Google Analytics. Signing up with Google Analytics is simple and very straightforward, just follow the directions. You will then be able to track all sorts of interesting data about your website.

Inspect the links on your website and ensure that they all work properly. Sometimes a few of the links may be broken. This can be done when you are copying and pasting. Do not make the assumption that all links are working until you check them. It would be a horrible think for your links to malfunction. Think about that for a moment. Losing sales just because of a broken link is definitely a no-no. In addition, ensure that the links are leading to the correct site and that your site navigation is good.

Does your website have a defense? In other words, does it contain a defensive design element to get your visitor back on track? The most traditional thing to be ignored in this sense is the 404 pate. This is usually comes up when the user types the wrong address, or just because there was a broken link. It could be for other various causes.

You should have a custom 404 page that actually helps your visitors navigate to the other useful areas of your site because they may have reached it accidentally. So make sure that your 404 page adds something to your site and make it better for your readers.

It's really easy to get excited with the launch your website and forget the basics of creating a 'good' website. What we discussed here is nothing difficult to apply, but still you tend to notice website owners making the same mistakes over and over again. If you truly want to make your viewers remember you, then create a website that will make them want to come back again and again. So why haven't you created one? So get out the magnifying glass and check out your site before you introduce it to the public
