Example for Rule N°1:

Libel (CC-BY-SA)

  • 1 - The site provides users with the possibility of finding out about new content or services.

Objectives (CC-BY-SA)

  • Enable users to immediately identify new online contents or services.
  • Improve the consideration of content by search engines and indexing tools.

Implementation (technical solution) (CC-BY-NC-SA)

As an example, the different solutions below can be deployed alone or jointly:

  • Publish an RSS feed of the site's news.
  • Publish a section such as \"Site news\" or \"What's new? \"
  • Indicate an account, such as Twitter, Facebook or other, where news about the site are published.

Control (CC-BY-NC-SA)

Throughout the site, check that new content or services can be accessed, for example, through an internal information channel (RSS news feeds, \"Site news\" section, etc.) or an external channel that can be accessed from the site itself (necessarily via its home page) such as a Twitter account.

Header (present in the book and the certification guide)(CC-BY-NC-SA)

Is it really practical to have to go back to a site and navigate through all its sections to find new contents and services. Certainly not, then, it's up to you.

Expert's advice (present in the book) (CC-BY-NC-SA)

Very often, users who regularly visit a site will not look for existing contents but for new ones, that is to say recent contents and in particular those published since their last visit. The respect of this good practice is an important element of the quality of a site, since it allows many users to quickly find what they are looking for: updated contents or services.
