Transcript: Design / Eye Path Lead Generation In general, this a nice looking website but it needs to add some intentional design to lead the visitors to conversions. Where are the real people and real content? Consider an instagram gallery where real people tell their own success stories. This whole page is unnecessary from a consumer sales conversions perspective. Recommend replacing this with 'Testimonials' and show all reviews and success stories (with images). That is what the customer wants. The consumer looking to buy an acne eraser is not typically interested in reading about an "Experienced Sales and Marketing leader with a proven track record of delivering breakthrough results....etc." If you require the about page in the menu,then: Remove images with alcohol in the background. Consider more making profiles more fun and personal, talking about your own pimple problems and how the product has helped you (with real images). The presentation of Diane Heinz, Partner & Director of Product Development is good. It brings credibility to your product. Consider removing "Partner" from each of the titles to illustrate Diane as an un-biased product developer. 6. Keyword Focus Use Appropriately Targeted Keywords – Consider the words that a user might search for to locate a web page or post on your website. Validate this list of possible keywords to actual search volumes. Anticipating the right keywords and writing your content with these keywords in mind will produce positive results. A mix of regular keywords and long-tail (longer phrases) will provide the best mix of search traffic and results. Use No More Than One or Two Keywords Per Page or Post – With the increasingly competitive nature of organic SEO and website optimization, best practices for keyword selection and implementation is to focus on one keyword per web page. In cases where the keywords are long-tail keywords or keywords of lesser competitive nature, it is possible to target two similar keywords or phrases on one page. Spend Time Mapping Keywords to Individual Pages and Posts – Plan your website pages and posts by mapping your preferred keywords and phrases to actual content. Use a WordPress plugin like WordPress SEO from Yoast to help track the keywords and keep you focused. Avoid Keyword Stuffing – Google defines “keyword stuffing” as the practice of loading a webpage with keywords in an attempt to manipulate a site’s ranking in Google’s search results. Such practices create a negative user experience and can harm your site’s ranking. Focus on creating useful, information-rich content that uses keywords appropriately and in context. Frontpage/Startpage There is a lot of text in the next slides. It's ok to skip these next ten steps and go to the actual Audit. The following ten rules are general and in general a very good idea to read and understand if you have an E-commerce website. Product - Reviews Summary Missing Sales Triggers 2. Design Consistent Website Formatting – Use a consistent template format for navigation, headers, text, typography and hyperlinks. Focused Layout – Use the layout of your site to highlight the most important content. Place critical content above the fold and allow less important content to follow. Organize Content – Make sure content flows from one block to another without overwhelming the visitor. Give users a clear and consistent structure they can follow. White Space – Make sure you provide enough white space throughout the design. White space not only helps reduce the cognitive load of visitors, it makes it much easier for users to segment and digest the information presented. Control the Bling – Many website owners want their website to “pop” or “sparkle” at the cost of the user experience. Limit bling and don’t ask your web designer to make your logo bigger even if you desperately want it to leap off the page at visitors. Call to Actions – Think through your desired visitor path and present clear call to actions to guide them along the way. Plan on these early in the development process so they can be included in the design in a cohesive and non-obstructive manner. 10. Some old school myths and crazy stuff. Duplicate Content – Search engines want to provide unique content and they avoid presenting searchers with multiple versions of the same content. As such, some search engines will filter out content they deem to be similar or nearly duplicate of existing indexed content. Thin Content – This refers to websites who create low quality pages with little or no unique content. It degrades the user experience and opens websites up to a manual penalty from Google. Stolen or Scraped Content – This includes the reuse of content from another source in an effort to increase page volume and influence search results. It also opens the website up to a penalty. Excessive Ads – Websites that have large amounts of ads before actual content are downgraded in search because they create a poor user experience. Cloaking – Cloaking refers
