Britain’s Worst And Best Online Shops Named By Which?

Homebase runs Britain’s worst online shop, according to a survey by consumer group Which?

worst online shop

The DIY chain’s website was hard to navigate, offered poor value for money and was often not up to date on stock details, the survey found.

The most highly-rated shops were specialist retailers, led by LizEarle.com and RicherSounds.com.

Which? said the popularity of smaller retailers’ sites underlined the importance of offering a personal, convenient service that gave “shoppers exactly what they want”.

“Where the big players are lacking, either with poor service or confusing websites, smaller more specialised online retailers have seized the opportunity to make their mark and give shoppers exactly what they want.”

We at mOrsoft offer a personal and bespoke website design service for smaller retailers, giving shoppers the experience they want.

All Our Websites Are Now Mobile-first Indexed

Google are now migrating sites that follow the best practices for mobile-first indexing.

Google’s crawling, indexing, and ranking systems have typically used the desktop version of a page’s content, which may cause issues for mobile searchers when that version is vastly different from the mobile version. Mobile-first indexing means that they will use the mobile version of the page for indexing and ranking, to better help primarily mobile users find what they’re looking for.

This policy reflects that a majority of website searches and views are now done on smart phones.

Mobile-first Indexed

Google are notifying sites that are migrating to mobile-first indexing via Search Console. Site owners will see significantly increased crawl rate from the Smartphone Googlebot. Additionally, Google will show the mobile version of pages in Search results and Google cached pages.

They have confirmed that all websites currently maintained by mOrsoft are now mobile-first indexed.

Call us today or contact us to see if we can get your website mobile-first indexed or if you require a new website.

Content Is King For SEO

content is king

Search engine optimisation (SEO) has changed completely over the past 10 years.

Gone are the days when website pages were stuffed with key words, which was more beneficial to search engines than the true purpose for your website which is to generate interest.

As artificial intelligence is driving search engine rankings it makes sense to ensure your website is unique and caters specifically to your target audience.

There are some technical methods that you can apply to your website , such as ensuring it is responsive, to increase your website ranking. However unique content which is updated regularly can help enormously.

It is with this in mind that we recommend that your have a blog on your website which is unique and not copied from another site and that it is updated regularly. We have seen a dramatic increase in our website rankings on Google when we have done this.

Contact us today to see how we can increase your website rankings (SEO) on Google and bing.
