The e-commerce.

For Adults Only

Recommended Posts

I'm almost afraid to ask for feedback, as I'm brand new to this and it's an adults-only site (products are sexual in nature).

 

Please let me know what you think, I'm braced for the worst, so let me have it! I really want to improve the site before worrying about marketing it too much.

 

Thanks!

 

TeezMe Adult Fun Store

 

There is an "Adults Only" entry page, but the Enter button takes you to my OsCommerce store.

Site Review for: TeezMe Adult Fun Store!

 

I suggest that you install the Search engine friendly URL module. Search engine friendly URL's convert your store URL's from:

http://www.yoursite.com/product_info.php?c...p;products_id=1

to:

http://www.yoursite.com/Hardware/Graphics-...atrox-G200-MMS/

This allows search engine spiders to craw your website easily converting convoluted PHP extensions to URL's that are rich in keywords. For more information please visit the link below:

It is important to make sure that each product info page contains unique Meta descriptions and keywords for each product. Although what you place in the Meta keywords tag and Meta description tag does not give any weight in the ranking algorithms of Google, it may affect what appears in Search Engine Result Pages (SERPs). For more information please visit the link below:

Consider your Title Tag as a representation of your core keywords of the most important services and offerings. Make sure that your core keywords stand out in the title of your index page before anything else. Always remember to utilize the title tag on each individual URL for its specific keyword(s) and keyword phrases.

 

Alt tags are important because:

Some of the web users cannot see images, be they blind (convert text to speech or Braille output), color-blind, low-sighted etc. The alt attribute gives them an idea of what's on the page.

Search engines do index alt attributes as well. Make sure each image on your store contains relavent alt tags.

 

A site map is useful for SEO to make it easier for indexing spiders to find all content of a site. Search engine spiders or bots have a hard time following links that use JavaScript, like mouseovers. A site map with a collection of plain text links to all pages can make it easier for more pages of a site to be included in a search engine index. Consider installing the following module:

Images should be kept as small as possible for one reason: speed. Your visitors will not stay around forever to wait for your website to load. To reduce image size you will need to either use a competent image manipulation program or thumbnail module. See the following module for more information:

Consistent layouts are instrumental to the creation of a professional website. In order to convey professionalism, headers, footers, and navigation structures should be consistent throughout your whole store.

 

Buttons should match your color scheme. Ensure that you are not using the default osCommerce buttons throughout your website if your color scheme is something other than blue.

 

Sometimes simpler is better. Presenting lots of information to users often leads to confusion. I suggest that you reduce the number of infoboxes located within your store. For example, often the currencies and language can be removed if only the US dollar and English are being offered as options.

 

The standard format for US addresses is: Street Address, City, State, Post Code, and Country. I suggest that you move the Post Code field below the State/Province field on both the signup and address book entry edit page. (create_account.php, address_book_process.php).

 

A Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart (CAPTCHA) is a type of challenge-response test used in computing to determine whether the user is human. The main purpose of CAPTCHA is to prevent spam. I suggest installing this module. In addition, if your contact us page contains email addresses, consider removing them.

I suggest switching to an Amazon style login example here: https://www.amazon.com/gp/sign-in.html This form of login in my opinion is very familiar to many online shoppers. For more information please visit the link below:

Comments:

 

Your store is on the verge of being considered a stock osCommerce design. I would consider drastically changing your header design as well as store layout. Pink predominates the site, I suggest picking 2 more colors and creating a 3 colored color scheme.

Wow! Thank you for the great advice...I have homework to do!

 

I can remove the extra info boxes, but I'm not sure how to change any of the layout other than that, although I've been wanting to change quite a bit of it. If anyone can point me in the direction of any suggestions/information on how to do so, I'll appreciate that too!

 

Thanks!

Try removing the non 'https' links on the https pages of the website, if not, you'll end having a paranoic message on ie saying that there are non secure elements on the page, and that scares innocent people. On firefox you'll have an image of a crossed lock and the url bar will turn into red, and red in an url bar is a no-no.

 

Good luck.

 

PD: <3 the products reviews, lol

I read that suggestion somewhere, and I'd love to do it, but being a novice, I'm not sure how. Can someone give me some lessons?

 

Thanks!

Sure, open your website in IE, and then go to a https page, the browser will advise you that there are certain unsafe elements in the page, and it'll ask you if you want to see them, click no.

 

When the page is loaded, all the 'non-safe' elements will not be loaded and the'll be seen like broken links or broken images, all you have to do is search these broken elements in your source code and replace their URL's from http to https. If the links are pointing outside your server and the other server (to which they're pointing) dosn't have a https connection to accept the https requests then do this:

<?php
if ($request_type == 'SSL') { 

<a href https links>

} else{

<a href http links>
<a href https links>

}

?>

whit this code, when you're on a https page on your server, you'll only see https links and images, when not, you'll see both whit no warnings, broken stuff, and non secure thing popups.
