    Quality Assurance for Webmasters

    (Page 1 of 4 )

    You wouldnít stop running 50 feet before the finish line. You wouldnít wash your entire car and not wash the wheels. So why would you be content with a website that is 95 percent finished and not take the extra few steps to make it one hundred?

    Making Sure Your Website Works

    Quality assurance is an often overlooked part of website development. Once youíve finished the bulk of your site, go over it again and again until you have smoothed out all the rough edges. Donít let yourself fall into the category of forgetful webmasters. Without quality assurance, you may be turning away up to twenty percent of your potential customers. Follow these few easy steps and give your site the wax and polish it deserves.

    The very first thing that many webmasters forget is that the rest of the world isnít viewing their pages through a 21Ē LCD screen set to 1240x1080. The very first thing you need to do is take a look at your page in every resolution you have. Believe it or not, there are some folks out there that use 800x600 (gasp!). See what is above the fold on each resolution. Doing this test will let you know if your top or left bars are too big. A good practice to get into is to code your tables using percentages, not pixels. This way, your page will fit any size screen.

    Another thing to consider is the users who donít use graphical browsers, or who have the images turned off. Also keep in mind the folks who canít see at all and have to use screen readers. Without the flash and cool pictures and fun colors, what does your website say? Again there are more users than you think that are either blind, or have the images turned off in their browser. Make sure all of your pictures have alt text. This not only helps the user, but search bots like them too.
