5-Minute Website Checkup

Is Your Site Fighting Fit?

A quick, actionable list for businesses to assess their current site's performance. No tech jargon, just straightforward checks anyone can do. Let's saddle up!"

1. Speed Test

  • Use Google PageSpeed Insights (https://pagespeed.web.dev/)
  • Check mobile and desktop scores
  • If under 70, your site might need a tune-up

2. Mobile-Friendliness

  • Visit your site on your smartphone
  • Can you read everything without zooming?
  • Are buttons easy to tap?

3. Security Check

  • Look for the padlock icon in your browser’s address bar
  • If it’s not there, your site needs HTTPS – pronto!

4. Content Freshness

  • When was your last blog post or update?
  • If it’s been over 3 months, time to dust off the keyboard!

5. Contact Info

  • Can you find your contact details in under 10 seconds?
  • If not, you might be missing out on leads

6. Call-to-Action (CTA) Clarity

  • Is it obvious what you want visitors to do?
  • Your main CTA should be visible on every page

7. Broken Link Check

8. Load Time

9. Readability

  • Can you skim your homepage in 15 seconds and get the gist?
  • If not, it might be time for a content diet

10. Brand Consistency

  • Do your logo, colors, and fonts match across all pages?
  • Consistency builds trust!

Each of these factors plays a crucial role in how visitors perceive and interact with your site. A slow load time, for instance, isn’t just annoying – it can significantly impact your bottom line. Studies show that a 1-second delay in page load time can lead to a 7% loss in conversions.

But don’t panic if your site isn’t ticking all these boxes. Recognizing areas for improvement is the first step towards a stronger online presence.

Remember, in the digital world, standing still is moving backwards. Keep your website fit, and it’ll keep working hard for your business.

So…How’d your site do? If you ticked all the boxes, congrats! But if you spotted some areas for improvement, don’t sweat it. That’s what web designers (like yours truly) are here for.
