So, you have a brand new website designed? Everything is done and ready to be launched but are you sure your new web project is going to be successful, are you sure you’ve done everything right and haven’t missed a thing? Here are things to check before launching a new web page to make sure it has more chances to become successful.
* Domain name
Is your domain name short, unique, easy to remember and does it suggest what your website goal is? These are essential things considering a domain name. Read more on how to name your website.
* Website layout
Every website should have some basic website elements. Header, navigation, body and footer are the common things your visitors expect to find.
I’d suggest you to check if your fonts are readable, color scheme not repellent and navigation simple and intuitive. You can ask a friend to check these aspects for you.
Content is the key to success. The searchers will find you only if you give them what they are looking for – quality content. So give it to them! Check your website for spelling and grammatical errors. Make sure your texts are easy to understand and have specific appeal to your target audience. Don’t be afraid to give your personal opinion, your readers will only be grateful. Make your website interesting to visit and don’t forget to update regularly.
This is the most vital point to consider if you want your new website to get to the top of search engine results. There will be a detailed article on on-site SEO at this blog later, now lets focus on off site things that have to be done:
- Press release
I’d suggest you to write a press release and submit it to a number of press release websites. Give a brief information on your website’s goal and what your visitors will find there. I also suggest you to write press releases each time you have fresh news on your website – new products, projects etc.
- Internet directories
Submit your website to popular directories, this is a good way to build some powerful backlinks.
- Article submission
This is another way to get quality backlinks to your website. Write a number of good and interesting articles, submit them to article submission websites and people will link to them. Make sure the articles you write are related to the subject of your website
Well, this was a simple checklist of things you should consider when launching a website. Now when you have them checked you may change something for batter and launch your website to reach the deserved success. Would you add more points to the list?
