A website redesign project can be challenging. Siteimprove has developed several useful policy templates to help address issues that can occur after a redesign project.
You can find these and other useful policy templates in the Siteimprove platform under Policy > Policy Library.
Redesign related policies
Brand names that appear without ® and/or ™ symbols
This policy makes sure that your brand is still displayed with trademark or copyright symbols after a redesign project. You can also create a content policy to verify that the copyright is valid for the current year.
Links to documents that do not open in a new tab
This policy will find pages with links to documents that do not open in a new tab. This will help identify pages where a user’s workflow can be interrupted due to incorrect markup.
Meta tag description policies
"Pages missing a meta tag description" and "Long meta tag descriptions" can help with SEO after your redesign project. You can use these policy templates to make sure your meta tag descriptions are tailored to improve both visibility on search engines and usability by visitors.
Documents more than three years old
It important that your website provides up-to-date information. This policy template will detect all documents older than three years old allowing you to update or remove out-of-date content.
As well as these template policies it’s a good idea to set up policies to keep content consistent across your website, for example, create policies to check for your privacy statement, phone number, address, etc. Find out more in the article Introduction to Policy and check out our interactive tutorial on how to add a policy from the Policy Library.
