Rules database improvement
We made a little clean-up in our tips, with a new presentation for long contents and
we revised the categorization. Here is a description of our categories:
Accessibility is the degree to which your website is available to as many people as possible. A synonym could be “ability to access”. The best pratices you will find in this category :
– cares about the ease of use of your website by people with disabilities
– promotes alternative strategies for no widespread technologies
- Cache policy
The rules in “Cache policy” category focuse on cache strategies and configurations, mainly checking that the cache dedicated HTTP headers are optimized to maximized the benefits of cache mecanisms.
A web cache allows a temporary storage (caching) of web documents (most often on the web browser of the user), such as HTML pages and images, in order to reduce bandwidth usage, server load, and perceived lag (Read more).
With our “Compliance” rules, we want to promote cross-browser strategies, notably by checking deprecated technologies or obsolete web development practices.
In this category, you willl find the rules measuring your website’s performance metrics, such as page weight or number of used resources.
Other best practices will take into account parameters that have a direct impact on your user’s sense about speed. These best pratices generally concern front-end side.
Search Engine Optimization is the process of affecting the visibility of a website or a web page in the results of search engines. We will not speak about web performance or quality in this category, but we will focus on criteria (not only technical ones) used by Search Engine such as Google to determine the interest of your website.
- Server configuration
In this category, the best practices focus on parameters determined by your web server configuration (in most of the cases) or some server-side software.
- Other categories
The other categories available depend on the technologies detected by DareBoost on the analyzed website. We are currently working to offer more and more tips on specific technologies. If you are particularly interested in one subject, let us know.
In our next update, we will offer more details for several tips and the user accounts will be available, allowing you to save your reports !
