Using dummy text is a simple, yet elegant way to test any plugins and themes you think would make a worthy addition to your website. For optimal results, you’ll want to use a local test site that you can fill with dummy content. Moreover, you can also use dummy text for design purposes to make your mockups look more believable.

If you’re using a different theme, take a look around for any elements that don’t seem to be working well, and fix any problems you come across. Finally, once you’re done there’s unfortunately no way to easily delete the data. This means you’ll need to use some of the time you save making sure there’s no remnants of the test data lurking on your installation before you push your site live.
