Checking your site with these online tools will take only a minute of your time will give you a lot of valuable information about your site.
You know how frustrating it is to wait for a page to load. Most of the time you won’t bother to wait for more than 30 seconds or so, and if a page has still not loaded you might think ‘To hell with it – I’m going somewhere else’. Another often frustrating problem is to click on a link only to find the following error on your screen: ‘The requested URL does not exist’. This is known as a dead link. It could happen by giving a wrong link or by deleting a page that is linked to other pages in your site. And when you see a spelling mistake, your response is probably ‘If they haven’t checked their own web site for spelling mistakes, are they professional enough for me!’
Make sure your web site loads fast and it doesn’t have any dead links or spelling mistakes. You could lose tons of visitors if you don’t optimize your web site.
