For any company, an E-commerce website is a necessary channel to develop business, and gain the market share, so the effectiveness of this important tool is always in the first concern. To evaluate something first you have to examine it carefully, there are some crucial standards that you can follow to check out a website:
Firstly, easy to use
This aspect consists of two small elements that help you to make a right assessment of the web usability:
Loading time: Does the web have any links or images that take a long time to load? This is a case that we should avoid as some people may click off if they have to wait something long. Therefore, guarantee that your web will not make the visitors wait.
Automatic navigation tabs: Do the headings come up automatically when scrolling your mouse over the navigation tabs? It must be easier for the users if they don’t have to click another link to get the information they want. Just by hovering the mouse over a tab, a list of all information related comes up without doing more steps is much more convenient to them.
Secondly, meet its purpose
Making clear your website's intended audience, and its target customers is very essential. Also, you should better determine services that your website provides. Then, comparing your website’s purpose, and what it aims to to conclude whether it meets the customers taste or not, as well as its ability to attract the audience.

It’s easy to recognize a well-designed website if its appearance is considered as following points: easily readable text, good visual appeal with clear vision, and no clutter information.
Answer the questions to find out if the website functions properly:
Are there any dangling, invalid or unimplemented links?
