What is a website healthcheck?

Website health checks aim to identify areas of improvement to help websites work better.

In summary...

  • A health check is high level inspection to assess of the overall condition and performance of a website.
  • The main objective is to identify any immediate issues that could impact the website's functionality or user satisfaction.

Assessing and taking action to resolve any issues that a website health check reveals can lead to improved user experience, and could also help to improve search engine results.

Who is a website healthcheck for?

No matter whether your website was built by a dedicated in-house development team, an external agency, or a freelancer using tools such as WordPress or Wix, most websites have room for improvement and problems which could be having a negative impact on user experience.

The problem is that some issues might be causing potential customers a lot of frustration, but you might not even realise those problems exist unless you test for them, or your frustrated customers are good enough to let you know!

What do we check for?

What kind of things do we check for?

We like to go beyond a typical health check by...

  • checking for broken links.
  • checking for missing or oversize images.
  • analysing how some of the main meta-tags and semantic HTML tags have been used.
  • assessing how some of your key pages display on desktop, mobile, and tablets in landscape and portrait orientations.

Give visitors reason to stay...

Even though you products or services might be amazing, a website which is slow, confusing or overwhelming to visitors will encourage them to leave quickly. And if people leave your website without interacting, buying or making contact, you'll be losing sales and opportunities.

You don't know what you don't know!

You can't fix problems that you don't know about, and that's why periodic website health checks can be valuable.

Targa can certainly help, so get in touch now, or read on if you're not yet convinced.

Reasons why people leave a website early

Reasons why people leave early

If visitors to your website can't find what they're looking for, they'll leave. But even if you offer exactly what that visitor needs, there are many reasons why they won't stick around long enough to engage, buy or get in touch. These may include:

  • Slow load time (especially for mobile users)
  • Confusing layout.
  • Buttons or links do not work.
  • The page the user landed on isn't relevant to their needs.
  • Poor website content and missing images.
  • Amateur looking website suggests a lack of professionalism.
  • Poor overall experience.

What can a health check find?

You can't fix problems that you don't know about, and that's why periodic website health checks can be valuable.

Visual analysis and automated inspection tools are used to find things like:

  • Layout issues on desktop, mobile and tablet
  • Broken Links, missing and oversized images
  • The presence and use of key elements to help with SEO
  • How some of the main meta-tags and semantic HTML tags have been used

Free or Paid Health Checks?

To help evaluate the quality of your website based on the above criteria, Targa offers a website health check service on two levels:

  • A FREE website healthcheck which will focus on some of the main pages on your website and provide an insight into the overall health of your website.
  • A full website healthcheck, which is at a reasonable cost based on the size and complexity of your website. It's bespoke nature allows it to go as broad and as deep as necessary.

Free Website Health Checks

Our free website healthcheck will focus on some of the main pages on your website and will provide a high level report on missing pages or images, image sizes, excess code, and other things which could be affecting the performance of your website.

Some of the most common problems found during a free website health check can be fixed fairly quickly, especially where image optimisation has not been carried out correctly.

You'll be under no obligation to act on any of the findings, but at least you'll be made aware of any problems, and if you want Targa to provide costs to fix any of the problems, we'll be happy to do so.

We found Daron to be very professional and thorough with his review on our company website. We were so surprised at the depth of his investigation. He identified some areas the needed to be improved and informed us on how this should be carried out. We would highly recommend his services!
