A Guide for Colleges and Universities
You know that compiling a comprehensive report of your website’s content and its data is a key step in successful website redesign—but what does it mean? How can you use these statistics to your college or university’s benefit?
Smart content management systems provide you with tools to help you gather quantitative data about your website so that you can better understand how your web pages perform. You can identify areas where your site is effective as well as pages that need improvement. Using quantitative criteria, ask yourself the following questions to provide you with a starting point for examining your content.
Look for trends and consistency in your data. Document your evaluation and comments to better understand your thought process. Score each page based on performance. And finally, don’t delete any information just yet; simply record your assessment so that you can act later.
