Questions to reflect:

     elucidation of my content topic(s)?
  • Is my home page easily identifiable from the rest of my site
     or do I even have a homepage?
  • How much information is on my home page and how neat
     is it all laid out?

  • Do I have a clear manner of navigation or do I
     have to use my back button to get through my site?
  • Are all of my links easy to get to and similar from
     page to page, or are they scattered around?
  • Does my site take over 90 seconds to load on a 56k modem;
     also, does loading my site slow my computer down?
  • Do I have so many advertisements or pop-ups that they
     seem to be surfeit, and how noticeable are they?

Graphic design
  • Do I have graphics (mainly aesthetic) on my site
     at all, and do they contribute to the page as a whole?
  • Do my graphics look acceptable or do they look
     like they were done cursorily?
  • Are my graphics (including flash animations) supported by
     most/all browsers, or would one need special plug-ins?

  • Is the content mostly mine, or have I just copied
     everyone else's work throughout my site?
  • Were my graphics made mostly by me or did I get them
     from another site? If not, has credit been given?
  • Are the ideas incorporated into the contents, creation,
     design and theme of my site original?

  • Do I have any broken links on my web site?
  • Do all of my images load correctly, including banners?
  • Do any of my scripts cause errors or make the
     page not function correctly?
