How to review a website

Reviewing websites is quite simple. Just go to the website, browse through the pages and form an opinion about what it offers. Good or bad, the review has to focus on what is important to the audience. The audience is comprised of the potential users of the website. Let people know why the website is worth visiting, or why not.

Here is 5 Simple Steps

1. Look at a number of pages on the website you are going to review, or if possible, sign up for a free membership or trial demo to understand the functionality of the site. Does the site comply with what the designer says he can do? Try to learn about the purpose of the site and whether those functions can be completed with the current design of the site. This will allow you to make a fair review.

2. Think of ways to make the site better. If you can not think of anything, then maybe the site has reached its full potential. Determine whether it is user-friendly or requires technical knowledge to use it. In your review, you can include suggestions, but it is important to focus on what the site does and how easy or difficult it is for the user.

3.Find potential problems within the site, if any. When you review the site, try to remain impartial. If you only write reviews about places you like, your audience will not appreciate you talking only about the positives.

4.Do not be too critical at all times, but challenge the usefulness and functionality of the site. These criticisms are what make web designers better and allow sites to solve problems that occur early.

5.Inform your audience about the main functions of the website, giving readers a brief overview of what the site can do without much technical data. If problems occur when you are testing the site, then discuss them in your review. Never assume that because you had a problem with something everyone will have it. Finally, if you’ve been to similar websites, then affirm the similarities and express how you think comparing the two sites. Again, including a comparison will often be good or bad if someone is going to visit the site, so do not talk about how superior another website is if you try to encourage people to visit the site you are reviewing.
