Insites has the ability to carry out a wide range of tests when analysing a website. By default, only a core number of tests are enabled but it is possible to enable additional tests or disable tests that you do not want.

Whilst you could enable every test available within your report, it is worth considering how the increased level of information will come across to your clients when you share or discuss their reports with them. The phrase “less is more” is certainly worth keeping in mind here!

Enabling or disabling tests

Only account administrators have the ability to adjust the tests that are enabled.

Once logged into your account, click on the profile icon in the top right-hand corner of the screen then select Account settings from the drop-down menu. You should then select the Analysis tab from along the top row of options then hit Enabled tests.

The analysis settings section within the account settings dashboard

In here, you can enable or disable tests by toggling the switch next to the test name. As you can see in the example above, accelerated mobile pages, accessibility, alternative text, amount of content, analytics and backlinks is disabled in this account, whereas blog and booking widget are.

When the tests are enabled, you can click on the cog next to the test to customise the test weightings in the account. These will contribute to the overall score of the report.

Once you have enabled or disabled tests, scroll to the very bottom and hit Save Changes to apply the changes. You may want to review the Overview editor to ensure that all the tests are displayed on the overview screen, as newly enabled tests are not shown by default.

Please note, the new test settings will only apply to new reports generated after you have applied the changes. If you need to include the new test settings on an existing report, you will need to retest the report (a report credit will be used).
