15 Essential Checks Before Live Your Website

Your website is designed, the CMS works, content has been added and the client is happy. It’s time to take the website live. Or is it? When launching a website, you can often forget a number of things in your eagerness to make it live, so it’s useful to have a checklist to look through as you make your final touches and before you announce your website to the world.

This article reviews some important and necessary checks that web-sites should be checked against before the official launch — little details are often forgotten or ignored, but – if done in time – may sum up to an overall greater user experience and avoid unnecessary costs after the official site release.

Favicon

A favicon brands the tab or window in which your website is open in the user’s browser. It is also saved with the bookmark so that users can easily identify pages from your website. Some browsers pick up the favicon if you save it in your root directory as favicon.ico, but to be sure it’s picked up all the time, include the following in your head.

  1. <link rel=“icon” type=“image/x-icon” href=“/favicon.ico” />
<link rel="icon" type="image/x-icon" href="/favicon.ico" />

And if you have an iPhone favicon:

  1. <link rel=“apple-touch-icon” href=“/favicon.png” />
<link rel="apple-touch-icon" href="/favicon.png" />

Titles And Meta Data

Your page title is the most important element for SEO and is also important so that users know what’s on the page. Make sure it changes on every page and relates to that page’s content.

  1. <title>10 Things To Consider When Choosing The Perfect CMS | How-To | Smashing Magazine</title>
<title>10 Things To Consider When Choosing The Perfect CMS | How-To | Smashing Magazine</title>

Meta description and keyword tags aren’t as important for SEO (at least for the major search engines anyway), but it’s still a good idea to include them. Change the description on each page to make it relate to that page’s content, because this is often what Google displays in its search result description.

  1. <meta name=“description” content=“By Paul Boag Choosing a content management system can be tricky. Without a clearly defined set of requirements, you will be seduced by fancy functionality that you will never use. What then should you look” />
<meta name="description" content="By Paul Boag Choosing a content management system can be tricky. Without a clearly defined set of requirements, you will be seduced by fancy functionality that you will never use. What then should you look" />

Cross-Browser Checks

Just when you think your design looks great, pixel perfect, you check it in IE and see that everything is broken. It’s important that your website works across browsers. It doesn’t have to be pixel perfect, but everything should work, and the user shouldn’t see any problems. The most popular browsers to check are Internet Explorer 6, 7 and 8, Firefox 3, Safari 3, Chrome, Opera and the iPhone.

Proofread

Read everything. Even if you’ve already read it, read it again. Get someone else to read it. There’s always something you’ll pick up on and have to change. See if you can reduce the amount of text by keeping it specific. Break up large text blocks into shorter paragraphs. Add clear headings throughout, and use lists so that users can scan easily. Don’t forget about dynamic text too, such as alert boxes.

How to Clean & Secure Your Website from Iframe virus

This page is a starting-point resource – one we expect to evolve and grow over time – to provide webmasters with tips for ways to remove badware and other badware behaviors from your website and to help keep it free of badware in the future. Please note that this resource is by no means comprehensive or exhaustive and is intended only as a first step for webmasters concerned about badware. We encourage webmasters and hosting providers to research website security independently, beyond the suggestions offered here. It is the responsibility of individual webmasters and hosting providers to stay informed of news relating to website security issues.

There are three basic steps to maintaining a clean site:

  1. Identifying badware behavior on your site
  2. Removing badware behavior from your site
  3. Preventing badware behaviors in the future

Identifying badware on your site

The first step to keeping your website badware-free is to check for any badware or badware behaviors that may already be on your site. Badware is software that fundamentally disregards a user’s choice over how his or her computer will be used. Many sites with badware problems are not actually hosting badware themselves, but instead exhibit other “badware behaviors” such as automatic redirects or prominent links to badware on other sites. Often these badware behaviors are the result of hacking attacks or compromised third-party content, such as ads, rather than any deliberate actions by the website’s owner. You can learn more about badware and badware behaviors in our Guidelines.

When looking for badware on your site, especially badware due to hacking attacks, please remember to check the source code of your site as it is currently hosted on your web servers. Many site owners mistakenly look just at the website files they have on their own computers, and so miss seeing the evidence of attacks to the site itself.

If your site has been flagged with a malware warning by Google, check the Google Diagnostics page for your site for more information about the problems Google found.

Here are some common types of badware to look for:

1. Badware available for download on your site

Evaluate the software that you are offering for download – including any third-party applications that are bundled with your software – based on StopBadware’s Software Guidelines. If the software that you are offering for download violates our guidelines, then it constitutes badware.

If your software is bundled with third-party applications, you may also want to check whether the bundled applications install any dangerous or deceptive code. One method for detecting this is to download the entire software bundle onto a virtual machine and scan it using anti-virus or anti-spyware programs.
