Things that must be done before the website goes live

Before publishing or going live on a website, it is important to go through a series of steps and checks to ensure that your website is ready to launch well. Here are the steps you need to take before publishing:

Content Preparation

Make sure your website content is complete, relevant and interesting for visitors. Double check all the text, images and videos that will be featured on the website.

Functional Testing

Carry out comprehensive testing to ensure all website functions run well. Check navigation, contact forms, search features, and other features to ensure they are working as expected.

Responsive Testing

Make sure your website is responsive and displayed well on a variety of devices, including desktop, tablet, and mobile. Performance testing to ensure optimal display on all screen sizes.

Speed and Performance

Check your website speed using a speed testing tool like Google PageSpeed Insights. Make sure your website loads fast to provide a good user experience.

SEO Optimization

Carry out SEO optimization by making sure each page has a relevant title, description and keywords. Also ensure the URL structure is clear and easy for search engines to understand.

Monitoring and Analysis

Once your website is online, make sure you have a web analytics tool installed, like Google Analytics. This will help you monitor website performance, track visitors, and get useful insights for further development.

Once all the steps above are completed and you are sure that your website is ready, you can publish or go live your website. Make sure to consistently monitor and update your website according to visitor needs and feedback.
