The web portals in the last decade have gained a high level of popularity among users who surf the Internet. This has led to customers becoming more rigorous every day and demanding innovative products of the highest quality and attractiveness. To do this, these products are tested, which are key activities in software development, since they help detect defects that would otherwise go unnoticed until the software is deployed. However, various studies prove that in most of these products only functional tests are carried out. This is a problem because the detection of the defect is far from the moment it is introduced, which affects the correction costs and lengthens the project schedules, without covering the structural and non-functional tests.

This article describes a testing strategy that includes functional and non-functional tests based on web portals, taking into account good practices based on the most common defects in this type of product. Good practices are documented in internationally recognized models, regulations and standards, incorporating the experience gained in testing web portals. The results of the expert assessment and a case study are shown for a better understanding of the proposal.
