Checklist to verify before publishing a website in WordPress

WordPress checklist

 

Raise your hand who has not noticed days (or weeks!) After publishing a website that the happy box of “Discourage search engines from indexing this site” was checked  .

For many web projects that you carry behind your back, for many pages in WordPress that you have implemented, it is difficult that at the last moment we do not forget something. And I do not tell you if there are also last minute changes and rush (or on the contrary, they give you the ok to publish 3 months after doing it and you assume that everything was ready).

Unless you work in a large agency and there is a position or profile dedicated to the final review, which would be ideal, but not feasible for small studios and freelancers, there are so many points to take into account when publishing a website , that the easy thing is that something happens to us.

That is why I am sharing this checklist with you today with the points to review and take into account before publishing a website.
Although it is initially designed for WordPress projects , and has some specific points of this CMS, it can be applied perfectly on any type of website.

Don’t settle for reading it! Print it out and keep it handy to mark what was reviewed and write down comments or project notes, and if you think there is an important point missing, tell me in the comments and I will be delighted to add it.
