Another essential check - dead links. The web is a very fluid medium - sites arrive, move, and disappear regularly, and if your site has a link to one that has vanished or moved, your visitors get a "404 page not found" error message. Your reputation and business can suffer, not to mention your rankings with directories and search engines. I use Xenu's Link Sleuth, from http://completelyfreesoftware.com/ -repparttar reports are easy to understand, and can be saved to read off-line.

Finally, a task that is all too often forgotten, but which is absolutely essential, - backing up! Ifrepparttar 134800 worst happens, you need to be able to create all or part of your web site quickly - andrepparttar 134801 only way is to run regular backups. You can userepparttar 134802 Backup program that comes with Windows, but I findrepparttar 134803 Swedish program MyOwnBackup much easier to use, and more flexible. Create different sets to back up your web site(s), important data, e-mail, or whatever you want to keep secure. You can create new archives or add new or changed files to a current archive, restore complete sets or individual files, zip archives, and span diskettes. The help includes *9 Steps to a Complete Backup* to guide beginners.
