But I have something else ready that is also fairly useful in my humble opinion.As I have mentioned in my previous Post Content is king and Links are queen , once again here I have something quality tips for website.

Here is a long and pretty detailed list of questions that a website owner should asked himself about his own website.

Accessibility

1. Is content structurally separate from navigational elements?
2. Is the website cross-browser compatible?
3. Are ‘alt’ tags in place on all significant images?
4. Are text-based alternatives in place to convey essential information if this is featured within images or multimedia files?

Design

1.Is the site’s design aesthetically appealing?
2. Are the colors used harmonious and logically related?

Content

1. Is the website copy succinct but informative?
2 .Can text be resized through the browser or do CSS settings restrict size alteration?
3.Do you have an “about page” that identifies the author of the content, credits to source for content that was not written by the site owner himself
4. Do you have testimonials and publish them on the site?
5. Do you update the content regularly and don’t live by the phrase “set it and forget it”?

Other Technical Considerations
