You’ve spend months developing your new site and now you’re ready to launch. But are you really ready?
Do you have the correct systems in place? Will your site support unexpected traffic? Are all the links working? Has everything been spell-checked? Will the site perform in the live environment the same way it did in the development environment? Are all the images optimized? Did you remember a favicon? Have your analytics been activated?
There’s a lot to check and recheck to ensure your live site performs as expected and doesn’t create a negative user experience for anyone, especially potential customers.
Search Engine Watch has a great checklist to help you test your site both before and after you go live to ensure that everything is working and displaying properly.
