Using Websitegarage.com as Site Analysis and Design Tool
Websites from eight western colleges of business were analyzed using Netscape's websitegarage.com tool. This site automatically analyzes and generates reports of a websites design and performance. Factors rated include browser compatibility, search engine index measures, load time, dead link, popularity, spelling, and HTML syntax correctness. Most of the selected sites rated "Fair" overall, with only two sites rating "Good". Factors with the most negative impact on ratings were found to be (1) search engine indexibilty, and (2) load time as measured by the number of bytes of graphics.
