“Hi ! I know you’ve been working hard on your website and can’t wait to get it live, but have you thought about testing it before launching it?”

“Well, I have to admit that I haven’t taken the time to test it yet. I can’t wait to share it with everyone!”

“I understand your enthusiasm, but believe me, it is really important to test your website before putting it online. Many people make the mistake of skipping this crucial step. Don’t fall into the same trap!”

“Why is it so important to test my website?”

“Well, if you don’t test your website, you risk encountering compatibility issues, navigation errors, and display issues that could spoil the user experience. You want your website to be user-friendly and glitch-free, right?”

“Of course, I want visitors to have a good time on my website. So what should I do to test it properly?”

“Start by checking that all the pages are accessible and that the links work correctly. Also, make sure the images are well-aligned and the content is easy to read. You can even use online tools like Google PageSpeed Insights or GTmetrix to check your website’s loading speed. It’s free and it would be a shame to deprive yourself of it!”

“Alright, I’ll make sure to do all of that. Is there anything else I should test?”

“Yes, it is important to test your website on different browsers and devices. Visitors can use different browsers like Google Chrome, Safari, Firefox, etc., and access your website from smartphones, tablets or laptops. You must ensure that your website is compatible with all these environments.”

“Oh I see. I didn’t think of that. Once I have checked all this, can I finally launch my website?”

“Not so fast! Don’t forget to test all the features of your website, such as contact forms, social media buttons, etc. You don’t want visitors to face any problems or difficulties when interacting with your website, do you?”

“Effectively. I now understand how crucial testing my website is. Thank you for these recommendations!”
