Website Testing

It’s one thing to have a website online and it’s quite another thing to have it working efficiently, loading quickly and showing up effectively in the search engines.

Listed here are free online resources designed to help you keep your website running at its optimum.

  • W3C MARKUP VALIDATION is probably the most important free resource for determining if your website is operating properly. All websites are designed with a specific coding and this resource tells you, instantly, if the coding you are using is correct. Incorrect coding will slow down loading times and disrupt search engine listings.
  • Site Timer allows you to analyze some of the most critical aspects of web page performance. You can easily find out how long it takes for a dial up modem user to get your page, check all the graphical links to ensure they’re correct, even take a look at your servers HTTP headers and more! Everything is done online, so you don’t need to install or configure any special software. Just click on the Site Timer link and enter the web page URL.
  • Speakeasy — Speed Test (Test your internet connection speed). By measuring the download and upload rate from various locations you are able to accurately measure your personal internet connection speed. This doesn’t tell you anything about your website but it shows how good your internet browsing service is. Knowing this can help eliminate speed problems on your website.
  • mobiReady is a testing tool that evaluates mobile-readiness using industry best practices & standards. The free report provides both a score (from 1 to 5) and in-depth analysis of pages to determine how well your site performs on a mobile device.
  • Web Worth is a free tool to help anyone discover out a website’s estimated value. It will calculate and estimate the web site’s worth and display a valuation, daily page views and daily ads revenue. It will show precise information available for any domain.
  • Engine Viewer is built off of the core of a search engine harvester (spider). What this means is you can view your web page in the same way a search engine does, from how it breaks down the HTML, to which links it extracts, how it interprets your robot exclusion rules and more! Since a large percentage of most websites traffic comes from search engine results, it’s now more important than ever to understand better how web pages are dissected and indexed.
