After launching WebDevMania i wanted to run all the things i have learned are important when launching a new website. And to my surprise by using the tools i actually had to add/edit a few things to make the website “perfect”.

First and i believe most importantly you need to cross browser test your website, i use to own a lot of machinery and use it to test in the main browsers. Personally i only test for IE7 and 8, firefox 3 and 3.5, and safari 3 and 4. To do this now i use BrowserShots.org it’s a really good website that uses people’s machines to do the cross-browser testing for you, it provides you with Snapshots.

Secondly we want to check the SEO of our website, for that we use WebSiteGrader.com. You enter the website you want to check against and then you add a website that may be considered competition, that way it will help you identify how to make your website better. SEO is critical in this day and age, Google/Bing traffic is too crucial to miss on.

And third but not last, usability. Unfortunately most actual usability tools out there cost money, so i just recently found Feng-Gui it’s not perfect but it does the job. What job might that be? What it does is analyze what is most visible in your page, and it tells you what people might click on first second and third. Instead of having to spend hundreds of dollars for people to test and such give this a host, it will give you a vague idea.

I am excited to hear any other suggestions in the comments.
