Site audits and technical reviews
Site audits and technical reviews help you identify any problems in your site, including security and performance issues. Salsa’s site audits and technical reviews will pinpoint issues and give you recommendations on how to fix them.
Why you might need site audits and technical reviews
You may need a site audit and/or technical review for a number of reasons, such as:
Reduce performance risks: Site audits and technical reviews can help identify any site performance issues and make recommendations on how to fix the issue(s).
Reduce/remove security risks: Audits identify security risks and give you strategies to reduce or remove the security risk.
Maintenance issues: An audit or review can help identify, and provide recommendations on how to fix, issues that will make your site difficult to maintain in the future.
Best practices: In general, audits and reviews will help your site adhere to best practice when it comes to site performance, security, usability, etc.
Benefits of site audits and technical reviews
Site audits and technical reviews provide the following benefits:
Improved maintenance levels: When a site is built following best practices, it decreases maintenance issues.
More responsive (faster) site: Following best practices will also ensure a more responsive, faster site. There are also specific areas that can be optimised to ensure a fast Drupal/GovCMS site.
Improved Google rankings: Sites that load faster are returned in Google searches with a higher ranking than sites of a similar ‘value’ in other areas.
