I've recently made some big updates to a shop that I own and would like your feedback about anything that could be adjusted or repaired, especially with SEO (though open to design critique, too.)
Our heat maps indicate these updates have helped, though we are still seeing users trying to click on product photos when within a product page and on non-clickable photos to which I cannot add a URL clickthrough for (silly template.) Not too sure how to mitigate their potential frustration here?
Open to your thoughts!
Hyde here from Shopify.
In short: fantastic store. You've got the content, the design, the mission statement, the imagery. I wonder if you couldn't sharpen the product descriptions a little?
You already offer a bullet point list of the reasons customers should buy, but what about encouraging them to share their purchase?
**You're going to get a lot of compliments - do us a favor and make sure you tell them where you got it!**
You could get really creative with your product descriptions.
There are even some templates you could use to speed up the process.
Perfect for ___________________________ (ideal situation),
these _______________ (product name)
can be/will _______________ (tell a quick story).
(Product name) ______________
are ______________ (top features)
to _______________ (product benefits).
No more _____________________ (pain and/or challenge).

Excellent feedback! Thank you so much.
We will be sure to update product descrips, meta descrips, and maintain a list of keywords.
Your product description template is fantastic, too.
Side question: is there a way to view meta descrips from the product page of a shop without having to Google search (something like Developer Tools or View Source from the browser?)
There certainly is!
Within the product page, if you scroll to the bottom, you will see the option to edit website SEO:
And if you click on that, you will see that you can edit the page title, meta description, and URL:
If you wanted to edit your product descriptions in bulk, you could use the bulk editor. To do so, you go to All Products > Select All > Edit Products:
You will then get to a page like this, where you can edit the SEO for your products:
I hope that helps!
All the best, Hyde.
Thanks! I may not have been clear, I mean is there a way to view the meta title and description from the outside (user's view,) not just from within the backend?
I'm curious how I could view someone else's website or double check my client's site from the outside just from visiting their webpage.
There are some ways you can make your product page more sticky...
