7. Make sure your Pages are Current and Properly Linked

Be sure you clearly date your project by including a notice in some prominent place. (Many sites include the notice at the bottom of each page indicating the time the page was last updated.) If the project is from a previous academic year your date will suggest to potential reviewers and correspondents that the project is not current.

Links within your current project should always work. If you develop your Web pages off-line using relative addressing and then thoroughly test out all links, this should never be a problem.

Because of the dynamic, changing nature of the Web itself, you can't always predict when external links will fail. This is a good reason to limit the hot links you use to only those that are really germane to the project presentation.
