Website audit and archive guidance. What is it and why is it important?

Kelly Ohaver

Just like spring cleaning and annual health checks help you decide what’s no longer necessary and identify potential issues before they become a problem, your website could benefit from a regular review too. Reviewing and cleaning up your website will save you time and effort in the future, highlight potential content gaps, and show areas where you can improve functionality and the user experience.

The National Institute on Aging (NIA) recently developed a Website Content Audit and Archive Guidance document and a content inventory with a goal of keeping the institute’s online information accurate, up-to-date, and optimized for accessibility and an improved user experience.

This webinar will cover suggestions on:
• Deciding what to include in an archive and audit plan
• Identifying content types
• Defining a review schedule and audit recommendations
• Gaining stakeholder buy-in
• Creating a content inventory

Auditing and archiving web content doesn’t have to be difficult. It’s a necessary and important tool to help maintain your digital content and keep it accessible to everyone.
