The article proposes a comprehensive method for the multicriteria evaluation of websites. The essence of this method is that using this method we can not only evaluate a website traditionally, but also obtain the following useful results: importance coefficient of each of the criteria, the evaluation of the website for each criterion individually. Moreover, we can also compare the sampled websites and then rank them. It is noted that in order to get the precise result, the sampled websites must be referred to the same category, that is, have the same set of criteria for evaluation.
