As a business owner, it is important to maintain a healthy website. A healthy website is one that is working properly, bringing in the right people, and allowing users a good experience. Without the health of a website, a company may have a difficult time converting and keeping customers.

A website serves as a way to market your business online, so that users and customers can easily find your information or product. Websites give users easy access to information, allow them to make purchases, and can also give customers the chance get a feel of your business.

These days, it is almost impossible for a business to be successful without an online marketplace. Many people browse the internet when they are looking for a product or service. While no site is perfect, there could be some pretty big issues happening with it that is driving users and customers to find what they need somewhere else.


Why is your website's health important?

Having a healthy website can benefit a business in many ways. When users visit a website, they have some kind of experience. Depending on how the site is performing, this can have an impact on whether or not the customer will make a purchase. When a customer makes a purchase, a business makes a profit. Without purchases and profits, a business cannot survive. It is also important that with technology that constantly changes, a company is keeping up with the competition as well as paying attention to what is popular and useful for the customer. This is why it is very important to perform monitoring and reporting tests for a website.

In addition to keeping up with technology and making a profit, website health is also important because of customer relations. If you have ever visited a website that is having issues, it may impact how you feel about that particular company. A user experience can make or break your conversion rate. Conversion rate is the percentage of people who visit a website that becomes customers—a better user experience will result in a higher rate of conversion.

More conversions mean more profit for a business. When something is wrong with a website, users become frustrated and leave. There are many ways in which a website can be monitored to make sure there are little or no errors for users.


What does DYNO Analytics monitor and report?

DYNO Analytics offers monitoring and reporting features that can help to ensure your website is in good health. The variety of features can notify a website owner of issues as they come up. The functionality of a website is just as important as the functionality of a business as a whole. DYNO Analytics offers reporting features such as accessibility testing, content inventory and audit, keyword tracking, and even Google Analytics.

Below is a description of each of the features and how they can help to ensure the health of your website. DYNO Analytics is a reliable tool that can be used for many different types of monitoring.


Accessibility Testing

DYNO Analytics offers an accessibility testing tool that can help to ensure the health of a website by providing easy accessibility for every user. There is a law stating that even websites need to be accessible to people with all kinds of disabilities. There are many features website owners can include to ensure that the information on a webpage can be easily found and accessed by anyone, no matter what their limitations are. While it is a law that needs to be followed, it is also common sense that any business’ website should be available and accessible to everyone.

This tool can monitor and test a website to ensure all the features, content, and usability is in compliance with the law. It can identify any barriers to accessibility and report to the owner what needs to be done in order to fix these issues. The reports can be downloaded in either PDF or CVS, so that it can be easy to share with a team of web developers. Your team can then assess the reports and figure out next steps. The most important step to fixing a problem is to identify it, and Accessibility Testing with DYNO mapper can help you do that.

This accessibility test is completed by evaluating the HTML content of a website and reporting on any accessibility issues that may be preventing your page from being successful to all users. It can check each page and feature on a website, ensuring that the site as a whole is allowing access to everyone.  It can also monitor and report on the specific content that is on a website, as this can make it difficult for people with certain disabilities to get the information needed.

Why is This So Important?

Not only is it the law, but the more people who have access to a page, the better it is for a business. If the page is only easy to use for certain people, a business can miss out on other customers. Missing out on customers can be detrimental to a business. A business only survives by getting users to convert to customers by making purchases. If your website has a low conversion rate, it might be because it is not accessible to all people. By running this test, you can make sure your website is healthy enough to support all kinds of users.


Content Inventory

Another type of monitoring that can be completed by DYNO Analytics is content inventory. The content on a webpage is just as important as the webpage itself. Content includes pictures, information, videos, text, and any other types of information that users may interact with. The content tells the story of your business, and it can give an impression on a company’s brand. Content can make or break a customer experience as well.

Taking inventory of all the content on your site can be helpful to ensure everything is working as it should. This monitoring tool can analyze a website and keep an inventory of all the content you have. Better yet, it can also let you know what content may or may not be working as you had planned. There is a feature called Inventory Detail that will organize the content you have on your page by type, status, and location. It has the ability to analyze pop up displays on your sitemap as well.

The reports can also be accessed on your mobile device, so that you can easily access it when needed.

If there are bad links on your website, a user goes to click on it, and it may not work. This is frustrating to the user and may cause them to go to a different website to find what they are looking for. This can not only hurt your business by preventing them from making a purchase, but it can also damage the reputation you have. Users are likely to share their bad experience with other potential customers, which might make those people stay away from your website.

Why is This So Important?

Taking inventory of all the content on your website is just as important as taking inventory of the items you have in your store.
