15 essential checks before launching your website

Check your titles and metadata (great for SEF)
Make sure your site works fine across ALL browsers to ensure a great experience to all users
Proofread your articles – ideally have someone else proofread them for you
Make sure all your links are working fine – test them!
Test everything, all your functionality – don’t just assume everything works

Create a sitemap, will help your site’s content be indexed by search engines faster
Create a 404 page, and check that your forms validate correctly
Optimize your site’s performance – remember spend money on good Joomla website hosting

Create a print only version of your site – some people may want to use your information “offline”
