Designer’s Website Audit Report


The Designer’s Website Audit is a detailed analysis report that analyzes your existing website’s structure, and spreads before your eyes the whole picture of your website’s architecture. This way you can analyze and optimize your site as a system, so that it works like a dream, and then focus on each page taken separately.

This detailed code and design report will quickly reveal every issue on your site that can affect search engine indexation, rankings, and user experience: broken links and images, duplicate content, poor mobile usability, redirect chains, internal linking problems, heavy pages and scripts, W3C validation errors, thin content, and more.

The Designer’s Website Audit sees your site just like search engines do, and digs diligently through your entire site to find and audit every resource, both internal and external: HTML, CSS, JavaScript, Flash, images, videos, and more. The report also lets crawls your site as Google, Bing, or Yahoo, following robots.txt instructions for any bot, so you can see and review the same pages of your site that search engines see.

It also checks each page for dozens of structure and HTML-coding related factors that deal with your website’s structure and HTML-coding such as:

  • HTTP status codes
  • Broken links
  • HTML code errors
  • Page size
  • HTML code size
  • Titles
  • Meta descriptions
  • Meta keywords
  • Total links
  • External links
  • Nofollow links
  • Cache date in Google, Yahoo! and Bing
  • Popularity according to Google and Yahoo!
  • Popularity in social media: Diigo, Delicious, StumbleUpon, Social Mention

This report is a great tool for designers who are looking to improve a site’s technical performance, and for every error reported, it provides a list of pages it affects along with specific, step-by-step how-to-fix instructions.
