Google Sites Check-Up
Many user created Google Sites have some common issues in the design and set-up of the Site that degrade the appearance, performance and usefulness to the visitors. A Google Sites Check-Up by Etter Ventures can greatly enhance the appearance and performance of your existing Site.
Common problems that can be addressed, resolved and eliminated include:
- Poor color scheme selections causing less than optimal Site appearance
- School logo / header not implemented effectively on the website
- Less than optimal implementation of Google's tools, including Google Calendars, Announcements, Maps, etc...
- Too much information on the Sites homepage
- Use of photos that are too large (e.g. - dpi's) for efficient use on the Internet, causing the Site to load and respond slowly
- Inefficiently organized navigational structure
- Improperly hyperlinking of files and links, taking visitors away from the website when clicked
- Site not tested for proper display and execution on different Internet browsers (e.g. - Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Safari, Firefox, etc...)
- Site not optimized for Mobile viewing (Google Mobile-Friendly Test), causing Google, Bing, Yahoo to depreciate web search rankings and reporting.
- Site not tested for proper display on multiple platforms including desktop, tablet and smart phones, for both Apple and Android.
- Failure to implement links to Social Media (e.g. - Facebook, Twitter, + Google, etc..)
- Failing to submit the Site to the major search engines (e.g. - Google URL Submit - Bing URL Submit)
- Failure to "Map" website and redirect to standard URL address
- Failure to implement a powerful and useful website footer structure
