Protect your brand

What are your biggest website challenges?

Your website is your most important public-facing asset and gives the first impression of your organization.

Presenting your university in the best light is key to attracting and retaining students from all backgrounds and abilities.

With thousands of pages, continually updating content, a wide range of stakeholders, and accessibility challenges, you’ve got your work cut out. Silktide can help.

Website monitoring

Thousands of pages to manage

Nobody can be expected to manage tens of thousands of web pages alone. Keeping track of content that changes daily, accessibility challenges, and disparate stakeholders is an insurmountable task.

Unlimited testing capabilities

Silktide reports on your entire web structure, including subdomains and micro-sites. We help you identify and correct issues across website content, marketing, and privacy. You no longer need to be an expert in everything.

Web accessibility

Accessibility requirements

Silktide automatically tests your website against all three levels of WCAG 2.1 accessibility legislation, including mobile device testing.

We’ll educate and guide your team toward better accessibility compliance by giving you a comprehensive website testing platform.

Content optimization

Continually updating content

Your content team is regularly adding new pages to your site. We’ll give them the tools to create a top-performing website using best practices for SEO, search, speed, mobile, and page optimization.

Spelling, grammar, and broken link checking

Check for spelling errors in 50 languages. Make broken links a thing of the past. Gain the knowledge and understanding required to produce world-class content using Silktide’s clear reports.


Marketing, SEO and advertising challenges

Content is only the first step. Your marketing team demand the very best performance from your website, including well-optimized, highly ranked pages.

Page speed optimization

Making sure images are optimized for size and your pages load quickly should be an important focus for your development and content teams.

Keyword research and backlinks

With Silktide, you’re able to report on keyword rankings, competitors advertising and backlink quality, as well as identify and solve a wide range of technical challenges.

Our project management tools

Silktide is more than the sum of its parts. Our modules test user experience, marketing, accessibility, and more. But our platform is fundamentally designed to help your team work more efficiently together.

Keep track of everything

Assign issues to specific users and groups, and track their status.

  • Comment on specific issues
  • Add custom tags and statuses
  • Change monitoring with historical records


Time and resource pressure

Managing and optimizing a multi-thousand page website is a huge, seemingly unmanageable task, and often more work that is reasonable for one person to understand. Often, too many users are responsible for web content, resulting in inconsistency in quality across your sites.

Silktide identifies inconsistencies and technical errors throughout your sites. You can streamline and align your content strategy using custom policies, and get tasks broken down into manageable chunks.

Web migration

Migration and redesign

The migration of web content from one system to another is often an ongoing task. If you’re undergoing a website migration, your to-do list might look like an encyclopedia.

Website auditing

Silktide audits all of your websites and gives you a comprehensive list of pages, documents, links, contact details, and technology, making migration more manageable.

Sixteen years of technology

Silktide has been testing websites with our proprietary software since 2005. We don’t just analyze the code, we find errors that your visitors would.

By loading pages in real browsers, with JavaScript enabled, we replicate your users and experience your website as they would.

We’re confident that Silktide finds issues that other platforms simply can’t. We work with organizations around the world to help make the web a better place for everyone.

League tables

Silktide Index

The Silktide Index is our accessibility benchmark, comparing websites across multiple sectors.

We launched it in February 2020. Our aim is to raise awareness of the importance of web accessibility.

Universities are included, so you can see how your site is doing.
