I think in general different people look for different things. However,  
here are some ideas:

   * Is the text understandable
     - If not, how can it be improved?

   * Is it implementable?
     - Does the algorithm lead to endless loops?
     - Does the algorithm cause existing web sites to break?

   * Is there room for improvement?
     - If so, what can be improved?

That would make sense too.

I think that's mostly up to your own judgement. Just indicate which  
features you have reviewed and maybe point out where they can be found.
