We all love Software Quality Assurance & Testing Stack Exchange, but there is a whole world of people out there who need answers to their questions and don't even know that this site exists. When they arrive from Google, what will their first impression be? Let's try to look at this site through the eyes of someone who's never seen it before, and see how we stack up against the rest of the 'Net.

The Site Self-Evaluation review queue is open and populated with 10 questions that were asked and answered in the last quarter. Run a few Google searches to see how easy they are to find and compare the answers we have with the information available on other sites.

Rating the questions is only a part of the puzzle, though. Do you see a pattern of questions that should have been closed but are not? Questions or answers that could use an edit? Anything that's going really well? Post an answer below to share your thoughts and discuss these questions and the site's health with your fellow users!

One thing I noticed pretty quickly: there's a mirroring site www.sqaanswers.co.uk that's doing a better job of getting to the top positions in search engines than we are. Every question I researched, the sqaanswers site ranked higher than sqa.stackexchange.

This doesn't reflect the quality of the questions, obviously, but suggests that we might need to tweak our own settings and keywords for search optimization.

  • Hmm, that's good to know. It also look like they're in violation of our attribution guidelines. I'll add that site to our list of mirror sites to contact.
