Testing and
Optimising your
Website
A beginners guide
Nov.2019
A starting point on...
● Speed
● Accessibility
● Responsiveness
● Usability
● Google Search Master
● Other aspects: SEO, security
Also:
● Further links
● Group discussion, learn from each other.
Aim
Provide an overview and pointers to continue researching in
your own time.
Demonstrate only free, easy to use tools.
Not an exhaustive task list!
Speed
Test it with...
● Pingdom tools: https://tools.pingdom.com/
● Webpage Test: https://www.webpagetest.org/
● Google PageSpeed Insights:
https://developers.google.com/speed/pagespeed/insights
Common problems
Images
Javascript
Accessibility
Why it matters
Test it with
Browser extensions:
Tota11y
Let’s get colourblind
Websites:
Web Accessibility Checker: https://achecker.ca/checker/
Wave Accessibility Report Tool: http://wave.webaim.org/
Solutions
Follow the recommendations from the test tools!
Colour contrast checker:
http://juicystudio.com/services/luminositycontrastratio.php
Responsiveness
… in other words,
Mobile and tablet
Test it with
Chrome and Firefox Dev Tools
Solutions
Adjustments the website admin can do (menu length, etc.)
Responsive theme
Mobile options in site builder
Mobile first
AMP
Usability
What does it mean?
Make it easy for your audience to get what they need.
Test it
With a couple of friends or family members who are not
familiar with your website.
How?
● Give them a task to achieve without telling them how to
do it.
● Ask them to talk out loud while they carry it out.
● Watch them do so without intervening.
Google Search
Master
What is it?
https://search.google.com/search-console
