E-Commerce Website Evaluation Report

...E-Commerce Website Evaluation Report The E-Commerce site chosen is Arngren.net at first glance of the site the visitors eyes are over the place unable to focus on just one subject of the entire web page. Also upon first view the user may just close the web page and find another place for shopping needs because of how the Arngren site is currently set up. In order to get potential customers Arngren should make better use of their Meta and title tags. By changing the title tags from the extremely long title tag currently used more Internet web searchers will find their website. From going from over 20 words to Arngren Products will help immensely. The Meta tags for their keywords should also be shortened down and not includes their web address. Listing their best sellers in their keywords would be a better option that using over 40 keywords; for example; . Meta tags do not need to be stuffed with keywords. In most cases one instance of the keyword is enough. The use of too many keywords stuffed into the Meta tags looks spammy. If two keywords need to be used that are the same the second instance should be in a variation of the first keyword and not a repeat of it. For example TV, Television would work as a variation of the first keyword. Also using an updated PageBuilder would help immensely. The Arngren site does not currently look like it has been updated other than to add a Christmas banner across the bottom of the home page. Making use of alt tags to added images......

...WEBSITE EVALUATION Not every church will have every ministry. If they do not have a particular ministry, just indicate this in the space provided. Church #1 Name: Saddleback Community Church Church #1 Website: www.saddleback.com 1. Ministry is…praying for others. a. Does the church have a prayer ministry? What does it look like? Saddleback Community Church does have a prayer ministry that is fairly easy to get to. It is located under Care & Help and listed as Prayer Ministry. My only negative belief is that the main page has too much going on with to many other pages from it that it can be distracting and hard to find what you want if you are not sure where to look for it. Otherwise, they Prayer Ministry page itself is great as it is simple and easy to use. They have a simple message about the ministry, a number to call if you need help or to submit a request, and a Prayer request form on the page you can fill out and submit allowing for many different avenues to submit a request to them. 2. Ministry is…following Jesus’ example by practicing spiritual mentoring and multiplying. a. Does the church have a strategy for evangelism? After reviewing the website, you can tell that the ministries are built (including the training offered) around evangelism. However, there is no specific strategy layed out on the website about evangelism for the church. The closest I could find was a reference to Rick Warren’ s book “The Purpose Driven Life”. b. Does the......

Human Genome Project Website Evaluation

...Human Genome Project Website Evaluation We are humans and we all eat. But have you ever wondered what’s in that banana you’re eating? Is it really just a simple banana that grew on a tree? Or is it perhaps something much, much more complex? It’s 2013 and a big debated issue is argued on genetically modification of food and organisms. The Human Genome Project (HGP) helps people understand and identify what exactly genetically modified food and organisms are (GMO). Publications and webpages on this site were created by the U.S. Department of Energy Genome Program's Biological and Environmental Research Information System and all other materials were provided by “third parties” and not created by the U.S. Department of Energy. The Human Genome Project started in 1990, coordinated by the U.S. Department of Energy and National Institutes of Health, and completed their research in 2003. This thirteen-year study was designed for people to understand what genetically modified organisms are. “The project originally was planned to last 15 years, but rapid technological advances accelerated the completion date to 2003” (Human). When one first enters the site, they can see there are many tabs at the top of the page and side margins directing one to other specific research done by HGP. Along the top of the page, the site provides tabs that explain information on a more in-depth description of genes and what exactly is going on in the microbiology essence, for those who wouldn’t......

...An evaluation of Apple Inc’s use of information systems through its website http://www.apple.com/ Introduction In the highly competitive world of business the ability to understand and make use of information systems can provide substantial benefits to an organization. The diversification of consumer taste and competition has put pressure on organizations to focus on customer involvement and business information systems have proven to be a versatile and useful tool in order to achieve this. Strategic information systems have the potential to allow an organization to gain a competitive advantage by accessing new markets and providing a more efficient and faster form of communication between managers. By improving communication within the organization, strategic information systems have the potential to reduce the cost of advertising, delivery, design and manufacturing. The purpose of this essay is to evaluate the use of information systems in consideration of Apple Incorporated’s website. About Apple Inc. Founded by Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak, the company was incorporated on January 3, 1977, under the company name Apple Computers.

Website Evaluation

...Evaluation of www.DHMO.org The website www.dhmo.org is very deceptive and biased in the information it provides. Using the five steps listed on the University of Berkeley website to evaluate this site, I will show that this site is trying to deceive people of the effects of Dihydrogen Monoxide (Evaluating Web Pages: Techniques to Apply & Questions to Ask, 2012). It is imperative in today’s age of technology that we do or due diligence and apply effective critical thing skills to verify our internet sources. The first thing I did was check the website’s URL. The site gives the appearance as being a nonprofit organization. The site is listed as Dihydrogen Monoxide Research Division. The page is not a personal page, and the name of the site correlates to the URL. So far the site would look legitimate to the average person. After taking a quick look around the page there is no background information about the organization. The only things we can learn from the site are that it is based in Newark, Delaware and is operated by Tom Way. There are no other credentials for the organization or the owner of the site. One would assume that this site is backed by the U.S. Environmental Assessment Center due to their logo being present near the top of the page. Although, after clicking the link it only redirects you to another DHMO page. Lastly, there is no way to contact the owner of the website. Next I looked for quality information. The links provided on the page give......
