I really like how you can retest a single page to see if you have solved an issue rather than wait for the whole site to be retested.

I really like the training content, the explanations, and the videos.

Build a better mobile experience
You don’t need us to tell you that most Internet users are on a mobile phone these days.
That’s why it’s more important than ever to offer fast-loading, efficient and responsive mobile sites.
Some of your users are on a slow connection or have accessibility needs.
So you should make sure your site is usable and accessible to everyone. It’s the right thing to do and it’s great for SEO and navigation.
Silktide analyzes mobile text and link size, appropriate scrolling, responsive design, and much more. We present test results in manageable chunks to your team.
Find your resource hogs
Time is money, they say.
If your website loads slowly, your users are more likely to get frustrated and leave.
That’s why Google considers page load speed an important factor in SEO rankings.
The mobile accessibility breakdowns were really useful. We just wouldn’t have picked those up otherwise.
– Jack Yuille, University of Worcester
I love that it checks so many different things like speed, spelling errors, broken links, SEO, and readability.

Optimize your images
Large images also cause slow page speeds. You should make their file sizes as small as possible.
This isn’t always possible when you have many content creators, some of whom don’t consider the impact of uploading large files to your site.
Silktide can identify large images and lets you download compressed versions. You can replace these in your CMS without involving the design team.
It’s a simple way to keep file sizes down, page loading speed up, and involve fewer people.
Check your site is online
Unplanned downtime creates huge cost. More phone and email support calls from users who otherwise would be on your website create extra strain on your staff.
Silktide’s uptime monitor checks your site every five minutes and notifies your team if your site goes down.
Your home page is always monitored and you can specify additional pages easily.
We are instantly notified about any downtime or inappropriate functioning of our website.
