How Q.U.I.C.K is your site?

Just what in the world is this?

Quick is a scale to rate your site on, based on 5 major categories:

  • Quality
  • Usability
  • Informative
  • Clarity
  • Kode

Quick Rankings

So what exactly is the point?

A while back, Vitamin contributor Mike Rundle (Of 9Rules, Business logs, and HiMike) wrote an interesting article titled “How C.R.A.P. Is Your Site Design“. The article explained four major points to consider when designing, that help create separation and make content stand out much more prominently.

But what about after the design process is complete? How can you keep your site afloat?

Quickly, an introduction to QUICK

Quick is our own made up scale of questions to ask yourself after your site is live, so you can keep things going long after launch. The five elements of quick all refer to things that are necessary for site success.

In the following pages, we’ll go into detail on each of these elements, one by one.

    Typos/ spelling and grammar are one reason for me to be negative towards a site.
    What really annoys me is when someone is offering advice on a subject like this one.
    I’ve said it a million times before, PLEASE check your copy before posting:
    “Don’t be afraid to through in your own commentary on a subject, and some sarcasm, as it adds flair to the content.”
    tsk tsk!
