Website Pre-launch Activities.
I was going to launch a website with the help of Saqib. We found these articles helpful. Smashing Magazine is a fantastic site where people from almost every IT related field share their knowledge. Lee Munroe wrote a very helpful article regarding essential checks before launching a website. It is a bit old bit still very much useful.
Saqib also came across the following article and found it useful. Rand Fishkin writes it.
I found this checklist which is also useful regarding launching a website. It is also available in smashing magazine’s article given above. Dan Zambonini wrote this in 2009. So some of the things might not be applicable these days.
