hello again community,

Just wondering if i could get some more feedback for my store - www.onthego-gaming.com.au

I have also added my first blog post as well. Thoughts?

Also, any SEO experts out there, i've been checking my index coverage on Google Search Console and it hasn't updated since 1st of September. Not sure if i'm doing anything or anything i need to improve on. I have checked with the Google community but so far not much input from them besides that i dont need to worry about it as its normal. I have checked "site: mywebsitsite domain" but only had 1 more than i did couple of days ago. If anyone could shed some light on this that would be awesome. 

Appreciate your time on this and hope you hear from anyone soon! thanks.

Hello,tranzverz. This is Victor from PageFly and I'm more than happy to help. First of all, about your store design at http://www.onthego-gaming.com.au: The big slide show on top with the title texts of orange is difficult to spot since it's a blend not too well with all the dark color background images of those slides. Also, I have noticed that you let the option of play and stop the slide show, I don't know what other people think but for me personally, it looks unprofessional and it's leaving me the option to play with that button rather pay attention to the information that the slide is trying to deliver to me. Also, the slide should be running all the time to keep the customer up to date with all information in the store, the customer will skim through the slide and click on the dot of the slide that contains the piece of information they know, that way you can keep the customer informs about your store and make them click and see your content when they spot something they like (increase SEO). Secondly, regarding the indexing problem, the issue might be that your website did not meet the criteria for Google Console bot so crawl through your site easily and that is why your store is not indexing in Google. I suggest you take a look at this topic to learn more about GG console requirements https://developers.google.com/webmaster-tools/search-console-api-original/v3/prereqs. Fix your store after that and resubmit it to Google console Hope this will help to improve your store, Best Regard! Victor - PageFly

Hi @tranzverz !

Welcome to Shopify and I wish you good luck!

  1. Clear CTAs - help to show what to do next. Hero banner on your homepage is a key to make a connection with every visitor. You should clearly communicate what your website is about.
  2. Branding - clearly show your company branding. Logo, brand colors, brand fonts - should be the same across websites, emails, and social profiles. A key part of building your brand is making it recognizable. 
  3. Social proof - an incredibly powerful sales and lead generation tool. 
  4. Engaging images - you need them on your homepage to give visitors a sense of what your business is about. Images help you to tell a story and show visitors what they can gain from your product. For a product website think about how images can convey the value of your product and help your visitors to achieve their goals.
  5. Try adding SEO related high search keywords in your title and product description so that it will be very easy to market your products and display them at the top in google search.
  6. 90% of people read reviews before purchasing an item. I personally do not read the description too much, I go straight on to the reviews section because that is social proof. In my opinion that is essential for every site. I highly recommend (almost insist) and adding that feature on your site. You can use Growave for that, it offers automated emails within the Reviews feature as well.
  7. Imagine if you saw something that you quite like in the store, however you want to browse more, get more options, and then choose the best one. That often happens to me, because I am indecisive. That is when Wishlist comes in handy. Since you have a lot of products on your site, I recommend adding that feature to improve the user experience on your site. Besides, if the items on the wishlist have not been purchased, automated emails will be sent out as a reminder.
  8. Social media has become a huge thing nowadays. I highly recommend taking advantage of that and adding Instagram galleries on your homepage. It will help drive traffic from your site on to your account and vice versa.
  9. Implement an opportunity to log in and sign up using Social Media account. We all have accounts at least in one social media. And if I have an opportunity to create an account just with one click, I will do it. having an easier way to Sign in will help you gather customer base. The most valuable thing for a company is the customer
  10. The sale you have seems to be a nice deal, however, when you make such a big amount off it might devalue your product. People always need to know why you have made such sales, is it a seasonal sale? or is it because there is no demand for it? Does that mean the product is bad? 

    Instead of giving a discount for nothing, give them rewards for completing certain actions on your store ex. for creating accounts, for leaving a review, for sharing your site, for spending money on your site. It is not difficult for a user to do and you will get so many actions on your site, and you are having discounts anyway.
  11. Use a referral program that will encourage your existing customers to share your products with their friends by giving discounts if the latter have purchased something from your store. With referral programs it is important to carefully set up so that you are not giving huge discounts and not getting anything back. [I recommend using one by Growave., because it is safe and it is integrated with 6 other marketing features (Reviews, Wishlist, Rewards, Social Login, Instagram, Discounts, Referral, VIP tiers) for better performance. 

    Hopefully, I managed to help you. If so, please let me know by liking this post.

This is an accepted solution.

Dear @tranzverz.

You should replace your current banner with a more engaging one.  It should be a neat and crips image with a tagline to attract the first impression of new customers. From the design point of view, I found your font hard-to-see, so you also need to change it.

To sell products faster, I believe you should put on more CTA (like buttons or sentences) on the product.

Beside using sentences like "Sale Off" or "BUY NOW to save ... %", you should add labels to your product image. Product Labels Pro could help you at ease.
