Use This Launch Checklist for Every New Site You Build
Designing and coding a website takes a lot of thoughtful effort. However, actually getting the site online and fully optimized is a whole other chore.
With this Web Launch Checklist, you can dig into all the major points of a new website to make sure you cover everything. This includes basic performance tips such as loading time but also covers important tasks such as SEO, content, security, and accessibility.
Each item in the checklist has a small plus (+) sign that you can click for more details.
This way you can learn about each step and maybe pick up some tips you didn’t even think about! It’s one of the more complete web launch checklists and it covers pretty much everything you need to do for a brand new site.
These days it still takes a while for Google to rank your content, with newer domains taking 10-12 months before they see real traffic.
But, if you have great loading times, optimized content, and proper SEO in place then your site will have a much easier time pulling organic visitors.
Thankfully, this checklist is also fairly new, so it covers some of the newer techniques such as HTTP/2 implementation.
No matter what type of site you’re launching or how far along you are in the process, this checklist will keep you on track.
One of the best features here is the ability to save your progress between each check. The site automatically sets a cookie for any items you check off, so you don’t need an account or any special password.
Just check off the items as they’re completed and move onto the next task. You can also download this checklist as a PDF file or a DOCX for Microsoft Word.
Plus, the entire project is open-sourced on GitHub, so you’re free to download a local copy yourself to add/remove anything you don’t want on the list.
Great site with plenty of value for web designers who constantly forget little tasks before launching.
