Technical Web Services offer Web Site Audits for £150.
Web Site Audits are a recommended option for web site owners who have legacy sites (old sites) and want to move forward which contain a significant amount of value that should ideally be transferred to any new development.
In most instances web site owners treat their old web sites like brochures, throwing away the old ones and ordering some nice new ones. This can however be a big mistake. A web site audit will provide you with a concise report and short consultation detailing your web site assets with recommendations.
The Web Site Audit includes the following although all sites are different and may have other items of interest.
Technology Platform: doc type, script, server
Assets: list of pages, significant content, text, pdf's, images
Domains: List of domains, hosts, expiry dates, ownership, value, age
SEO: Traffic analysis, keyword performance, back links
Data: Databases, text files, static data
Email: Email list inc pop, forwards & catchalls
User Experience: General recommendations of user experience
The list above is a brief overview of the primary areas covered. The report will fact find and present recommendations as is required for each site. The recommendations will also provide guidance on site development and specific questions, for example:
Is it ok to walk away from a site entirely redrawing all content or should existing content from a site be integrated into a new design.
Effects of change of domain on traffic and SEO vs re branding (inc canoconical considerations)
Risk analysis where site performance can be significant. even slight changes can result in reduction in traffic of 70%
Is my current site code beneficial for my requirements? Issues relating to flash, frames, image based content and conditional CSS
What are the implications for going forward? Is it necessary to change my code to the latest specifications? What do changes in browser standards mean for me?
What will the impact of developing my site be?
