SiteImprove Quality Assurance Reporting

January 08, 2015

The Online Strategy team is pleased to announce that the SiteImprove website quality assurance service is being made available to all GW Drupal website owners for a nominal annual cost. We highly recommend using this service for monitoring common issues such as:

  • Misspellings
  • Broken links
  • Broken images

SiteImprove also provides content policy and inventory features including:

  • Scanning for correct content usage (for example: "GW" vs. "GWU")
  • Scanning for unwanted content (for example: outdated GW terms such as "SASS")
  • Listing all pages on which a specific phone number or email address appears
  • Listing all documents grouped by type (PDF, Word, etc.)
  • Scanning for social security numbers to identify pages or documents that may pose a risk to the university

Pricing

We are in the process of negotiating a volume discount with the vendor, with the estimated final cost being $0.75-$1.00 per webpage per year. For example, monitoring a site with 100 pages would cost $75-$100 annually (depending on final pricing). The more departments that opt in, the lower our overall per-page cost.
