Website Testing Strategy

Testing Process

Testing is that phase of software development where the main concern is in determining the quality of a product by conducting manual and automated testing.

TESTLINK, is one of the web based Test management system which is used to organize the testing strategy.

Here are some highlights of testing strategy used while testing any website :

  1. 1. Graphical user interface (GUI)testing
  2. 2. Usability testing
  3. 3. Functional testing

1 Graphical user interface – GUI means how the site look when developed

Here are some points to be more focus while testing (GUI)

  1. a. Links
  • All hyperlinks color should be  standard
  • Does the site use (approximately) standard link colour?
  • Is the page background colour distraction free.
  1. b. Content correctness- Whether the information or links is truthful or contain misinformation. The accuracy of the information is whether it is without grammatical or spelling errors.
  • Content should be logical and easy to understand .
  • Check for spelling errors
  • All fonts to be of same size.
  • Is all text properly aligned .

1. c. General appearance- All about how exactly website looks like (view)

Testing: General Appearance
  1. d. Images
  • Does text wrap properly around pictures/graphics
  1. e. Navigation -Navigation describes the way user navigate with in a webpage, between different user interface controls (buttons, text boxes, combo boxes, dropdown lists  …etc)
  • Application navigation is proper through tab
  • Is all terminology understandable for all of the site’s intended users?

2 Usability testing

  • Does the site convey a clear sense of its intended end user?
  • Assure that option boxes, option buttons, and command buttons are logically grouped together in clearly demarcated areas “Group Box”
  • Does the site have a consistent, clearly recognizable “look-&-feel”?

3 Functionality testing-

Functional testing  :The main objective is to determine whether each functional requirement is actually implemented in the code. With functional testing, the team translates functional requirements into executable test cases that confirm how well the code satisfies the requirements at any given time.

Functionality Testing


  • Check that the link redirects you to the page it said it would.
  • Ensure to have no orphan pages (a page that has no links to it). 
  • Check all of your links which redirects you to other websites .
  • If we have removed some of the pages from our own site, set up a custom 404 page that redirects your visitors to your home page (or a search page) when the user try to access a page that no longer exists.
