    The Value of Web Site Reviews

    If you’re shopping for a website audit, it may surprise you to learn there are several types, methodologies and goals to consider. From a quick five-second user test to an in-depth full site audit, each one provides valuable information. The kind of information a company is looking for helps to determine the scope of a site audit. A quick “what do you think of my website?” approach helps the ego but isn’t helpful if the goal is to understand if the user interface is rendering properly on an iPhone on a park mountain while hiking a trail at dusk.

In other words, this is a continuation, if not a robust…
