How do report benchmarks work TN-Q14
The Dashboard tab of every SortSite report contains a benchmark column showing how the scanned site compares to other sites.
The comparison is done by comparing the percentage of pages on the scanned site with issues, against the average percentage of pages on other sites that have issues:
- if a site has issues on 50% of pages and other sites have issues on 75% of pages on average, the site will show as better than average
- if a site has issues on 50% of pages and other sites have issues on 25% of pages on average, the site will show as worse than average
The averages for other sites are calculated using a basket of hundreds of benchmark sites across the world. The sector benchmarks work exactly the same way, using an average percentage of pages with issues on government, education and commerical sites.
