Currently, the Web Group has three primary fee-based services:
This fee schedules below outline the costs for each service. The fees cover a portion of the staff time necessary to complete the service-related tasks; however, the school fully subsidizes the underlying systems and staff dedicated to creating and maintaining those systems.
Website Building Service
The Web Group’s site building activities are divided between official YSM organizations and faculty lab websites.
The fee schedule for organization sites is based on a per page price of $158.
A page is defined as a unique URL (web.yale.edu/services/resources/fees/index.aspx) and/or 250 words per page.
In the case of a unique URL with more than 250 words per page, the total number of words divided by 250 words. For example, a unique URL that uses tabs to break up content consisting of 1,000 words would count as four pages.
Website Editing Service
Site Editing is based on a per-page fee of $67. A page is generally defined as either one unique URL address or a page with 250 words of content.
If you have multiple edits all on a single page (e.g. several text changes, adding a photo, and removing a person from a list), that will still be just one charge of $67.
Conversely, if you have one single change that spans multiple pages (e.g. changing an acronym that appears in multiple places), the charge will be multiplied by the total number of pages.
In instances where a single page contains a significant amount of content presented in a condensed fashion (e.g. through the use of drop downs or tabs), we will divide the total number of words by 250 to determine the page count.
Website Review Service
The Website Review service is for clients who need a professional review of their website’s organization and usability. The Web Group will provide a report with recommendations, which the client can then make themselves or hire the Web Group to implement. The fees for the report and implementations are as follows:
The initial review is priced at $300. This covers the cost of a comprehensive review of a site and a final report which will contain a section-by-section (and where warranted, page-by-page) review of issues found and recommendations to address them. Where warranted, it will also include an overall summary of ideas to enhance the entire site.
Should you engage the Web Group to implement the recommendations, we will price the project according to the size of your existing site. This will be the number of unique URLs in your site times $158.
Should the organization want to include new content/pages as part of the implementation, the organization’s team must submit these in final form before work begins.
Like a site build, the project team will review together the initial changes for adherence to the agreed upon approach.
Should the organization wish, the content itself may also be edited after the new site is published. These edits will be charged at the same editing fee of $67 per page.
Faculty Lab Website Building Service
New lab websites that are more than 5 pages will incur a one-time $100 per page fee. Existing lab websites that are transitioned into the School of Medicine's web systems are free.
