Test Website

Test results for http://www.csc-oldenburg.de Test results from 3/4/2019 10:48:44 PM

Non changing page title.

Each page of a website should have its own page title, which reflects the content of the page itself. This carries many advantages, e.g. page titles are used for bookmarking and are read by search engines. Unique page titles therefore lead to search engine optimisation.

Some pages sharing the same titles were found.

Valid XHTML

HTML is a mark-up language used to create websites, and is independent of platforms.

"HTML is not a programming language, since HTML does not allow to, say, control a robot, set a variable or programme a game." (Quelle)

The display of invalid or incorrect documents depends on the software reading them (browser, roboter, screenreader, etc; see above). However, the display will vary greatly depending on the software, and this can lead to errors, often without the knowledge of the website manager, since it is impossible to test the website against all updates of all the software.

Non validated HTML source text can cause high costs, especially if it causes the software to look for an error or if the functionality and therefore the user experience is impacted.  


Further information:
The validity of the HTML source text can be checked with a so-called 'validator'.

The majority of the pages are valid, but not all.

Complex URLs

"Even though machine-level addressing like the URL should never have been exposed in the user interface, it is there and we have found that users actually try to decode the URLs of pages to infer the structure of web sites. Users do this because of the horrifying lack of support for navigation and sense of location in current web browsers. Thus, a URL should contain human-readable directory and file names that reflect the nature of the information space."

The URL structure of the tested Website is generally good, though some complex URLs are used internally.

Suboptimal Target

When clicking on a link, web users expect to see the new page in the existing window. Most users lose control if there are several windows open, are unable to navigate back with the back function and get lost. At the same time, and this is particularly true for old computers, the system can get overloaded and crash if too many browser windows open. If new windows open but are not seen by the user, the perception is that the website does not work properly. Experienced users who want to open new windows know how to do this by using the function "Open (link) in New Window", or with similar comands.

There is one important exception to this rule: files in .PDF or other Office format can be opened in new windows. Users know to close them to return to the original window. In this case, users should be informed that a new window opened, and they should be given the opportunity to save the file.

Technical hint: For XHTML Strict in particular, there is the possibility to send a .PDF file with ContentType "application/pdf" and HTTP Header content-disposition: attachment; filename=filename.pdf, since there is no target attribute. This test does not take it into account yet, but this is a feasible solution.

At least one internal hyperlink opening a new window was found.

Terms of Use

Terms of Use legislate the contractual relationship between owner and user of a website. Rules are set regarding the usage of the website, specifically about inter-active areas such as a forum.
The rules can be about the offer made by the website owner, the rights and duties of the users, the processing of personal information, etc.

No terms of use were found on the tested website.

Nr. of Keywords

Using the ideal number of keywords can contribute to the searchability of a website. However, search engines may class it as "keyword spam" if too many keywords are used.

The number of keywords contained in the tested website is not optimal.

Membership/Registration process

Until a few years ago, registration procedures scared web users off, as they were unable to determine which website to trust their personal data and which websites were not trustworthy. Things have change a bit in the meantime. Website registration can bring some benefits:

  • personalisation allows for tailoring of the content to the user's profile.
  • Targeted, personalised newsletter tend to have more success.
  • The information provided allows to adapt the offer to the needs of the users, by evaluating profiles anonymously.
  • Specific content can be offered for a fee.
  • Additional content best not circulated to anonymous users can be made available.
The registration process still contains a danger of asking too many personal questions, making the users feel uncomfortable and therefore avoid the website. Refer also to Nielsen's critical stance in "Prioritizing Web Usability" by Jakob Nielsen/Hoa Loranger.

No opportunity for membership was found on the tested website. Some websites prefer not to offer membership to all users, which is fine. Membership needs to be evaluated on a case by case basis.

Amount of inter-linked/imported CSS files

This test has been depreciated and will be replaced by other quality and performance tests in the next version.

Nowadays it is easy to save colour, type font, images and to a certain extent even the layout in separate CSS files (CSS = Cascading Style Sheet).

Numerous variations are possible, which should be evaluated on a case by case basis. A big advantage is that browsers do not download CSS files with every page, but they save it in the cache memory.

Further information:
http://de.selfhtml.org/css/formate/einbinden.htm#separat
http://www.thestyleworks.de/ref/at_import.shtml

The tested website uses only two inter-linked or imported stylesheets.

Access Keys

Using shortcuts on computers is particularly important for users with visual or mobility issues, as they may not be able to use a mouse.

The tested web site does not support access keys.
