Website testing forms an integral part of starting or operating a website irrespective of whether you run a website for business purposes or simply for leisure. It is not enough to simply create a website and have it up and running on the internet. There is a list of checks that must be conducted before your website becomes available on the internet. There can be several glitches and errors that may start to show once your website is running. This can be quite off putting for users who may start to avoid visiting your webpage. Thus, in order to retain visitors to your site, you need to ensure that your website functions smoothly and without any hassles. Some of the elements that you need to conduct testing in have been specified below:
- Your website needs to be tested for functionality before it starts to run. This refers to the way that the site functions and conducting a thorough and comprehensive check of whether all the links are in a workable condition or not. There should be absolutely no broken links or extra cookies that hamper the operation of your site. You can either try to eliminate such problems on your own or pay for technical assistance to troubleshoot such problems.
- Your website also needs to be tested for usability i.e. you will need to check whether it is easy to use for first time as well as returning users. There should be a detailed and easy to understand site map that is placed in a prominent position on the webpage so as to be easily visible to users. Also, the font and colors used should be standardized ones and should not be too gaudy or excessively large or small sized. The standards for image sizing must also be followed to provide a great navigating experience for the visitors.
- The security measures in place should be thoroughly examined in order to protect your website from virus attacks. Also, if you are operating an e commerce website and generally receive payments from customers online, it is essential for you to have proper encryption in place to protect their financial information from hackers.
