Thanks Hanna,

How do I contact you for assistance with our site?

Also regarding Bodum Bistro Nouveau Tea Press, its a new item that will be in stock in the next few days. I created the page prematurely, so the stock shows zero. But it should be available very soon.

Thanks for the review, I look forward to discussing your services.

@ Red Stick Spice,

It really makes sense to add new products in advance so that the pages are indexed by Google by the time the product is available. I just wanted to hint you that I as a visitor and potential customer would like to have this information listed on the product page so that I understand what to do next - leave my Email to be notified once the product is available or give up idea to get this cool tea press. If you add something like "this product will be available in 2 weeks." and the button with something like "Wishlist" or "Pre-order" - this would work perfectly for me.

Please Email us at contact@promodo.com to continue our communication.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Sue,

There’s not much to comment on your project in terms of usability because you already implemented a lot of useful things and did it correctly. Maybe just several minor issues described below…

I would make the banner more informative. Such a banner is a great opportunity to sell separate products, but in this case the slide should lead to that separate page. If you want to advertise a product category, the image should give your visitor clear understanding of that.

Not quite understood why you have filters on http://www.beachcover.com/collections/ladies-beach-cover-ups page. And what is the difference between “Beach-cover Ups” and “Ladies” parameter?

We would also delete “Beachcover” under each product icon (it’s excessive info) and add Buy button 9to add more call-to-action).

Page http://www.beachcover.com/collections/ladies-beach-cover-ups/products/blue-light-embroidered-beach-c...: why do you have an image of a girl in a white cover? It doesn’t belong to this product. This product has no indication on the fabric. Besides there is something wrong with the main image of this product – I can’t zoom it.
A broken link found: http://www.beachcover.com/pages/sizing-chart - Page not found :(

Not all products have information on the fabrics. For me as a potential customer this is important.
“Add special instructions for your order…” filed could be placed higher and implemented in a more obvious way so that it is more noticeable.

“Checkout” button should lead to “Pay with a debit or credit card” option and “Checkout with PayPal” should lead to “Pay with my PayPal account” option. Otherwise what is the reason to have 2 separate buttons leading to the same option?

From SEO point of view we would strongly recommend to fix duplicate content issue. Many product pages have identical text (please check the phrase “Our incredibly popular hand-embroidered beach cover-up is a holiday essential - perfect for the beach or poolside.  This” in Google - you will see 8 pages with the same text content.

Generally Google has indexed 143 pages of your project. Please compare it with actual amount of pages. If the actual amount of pages significantly differs from the amount of indexed pages – this will mean that there are some problems in how Google perceives your project.

As for general onsite optimization level - you'd need to add relevant keywords to your title meta tags, add more texts to your product category pages, fill them with relevant keywords and optimize texts on your product pages for relevant keywords.

Good luck with the project and if feel free to ask if something in my post is not clear :)

Sue,

you requested a free webinar on our website and left your @aol.com mailbox for that. We've tried to contact you but failed (undeliverable mail). Could you leave your request once again here: http://lp.promodo.com/guides/free-site-audit/ and give us another Email address?

Hello Sabrina!

 

I am really sorry for delay, but here what I have found out :-)

Let me start with usability block.  

Gallery Page. I love the idea, but I would say that it is not quite clear what is on this page, I would change “Gallery Page” for something else, and probably, better highlighted it, cause in fact it is a source of great users’ engagement – who doesn’t want to post photos of their happy kids? Such concept even could be used in social media.

Twitter button. I checked your social media buttons which are placed on the website, the one which is for Twitter doesn’t seem to work properly. Please check it.

I took a look at your Facebook page also, I think you could diversify the content on this page. For example, add posts from the blog, post some other content. By the way, statistics shows that posts without images are not effective, if you make the post with text and link, make sure to add some eye catching good-looking image.

As to the product menu, I would advise you to remove search by brand and category placed on the main page closer to the bottom of the page. It is better to show all range of choice to the user at once – user will appreciate it, cause they won’t have to complete several additional steps to find what they want, they will see everything at once. There are two possible ways to do this. Firstly, you can make a drop down menu under each category. For example under Baby Girl – animal rompers, baby hats, etc. Or you can place a large detailed menu on the left side of the website.

Ways to contact the team. I have noticed that on some pages email is not  a link it is not clickable, for example on FAQ page. It is a disadvantage from usability point of view.

Those big sliding images on the main page, generally they are supposed to be clickable and lead to the relevant page, however, if I want to do this I am either   not able to click or shown a window requesting a Shopify login…

Useful links directory. I would say that formatting of the links you suggest differs from one to another which creates not very good impression. Also at the bottom of this page I saw something like “Real Estate Link Exchange Directory

Free link exchange and link building service for real estate themed websites.

http://www.linkmarket.net/li...ectory/Business/Real-Estate/”;

 and “<!-- START OF ADDME LINK -->
<a href="http://www.addme.com/submission/free-submission-start.php">Search Engine Submission - AddMe</a> 
<!-- END OF ADDME LINK -->”
