DIY Website Audit Checklist for Small Business

The beginning of the year is a great time to perform a 10-minute audit of your website. And you can do it yourself! Here’s a checklist:

  1. Does it load quickly? Your website should load completely in under a few seconds.
  2. Can the spam. One of the most annoying things about managing a website is dealing with the constant bombardment of annoying comments and links to random websites. This is also a huge turn off for your visitors.
  3. Click your links. Yes, all of them. Make sure they work and that they point visitors where they are supposed to go.
  4. Proofread. Check grammar and spelling in all your content. Nothing screams “I don’t know what I’m doing” more than misspelled words and sentences that don’t make sense.
  5. Check images and videos. Make sure all the pages load properly and images/videos show in the right place.
  6. Give yourself a high-five. Congratulations! If you’ve made it this far, you’ve already outworked 90% of your competition.

Take a little time to do these few things and you will be on your way to rocking your website in 2019.
