  1. I recommend you try Google+. Google is busy integrating all of its platforms, so you'll get local-social visibility in the future, bringing local customers' friends to your premises, and social visibility for e-commerce. Also, check out Creative Boom. I think you'd fit right in there and get some extra exposure.
  2. I can't help without looking at the JS. It's probably detecting the position of the scrollbar from the top of the window instead of the top of the viewable page. Like this: Delivery & Returns I didn't notice slowness but I have a fast connection, so can't comment. Your welcome.
  3. The header jumps when scrolling vertically, due to the settings for the change from relative to fixed positioning. In the footer links, you need to replace spaces with non-breaking spaces between the words 'Delivery & Returns' and 'Terms & Conditions' to stop these links from breaking across lines. You still have the anchor text "Delivery only £19.99 (within 40 mile radius)" on the homepage and it still links to the homepage and not to further delivery information. The only indication you're based in Sheffield is your phone number dialling code, so "within 40 mile radius of where?" is what people will be asking. You need to state very clearly, somewhere on the homepage, that you deliver throughout the UK. If people can't easily see where you are and where you deliver, they will give up. Your 'Delivery & Returns' copy is also poorly written IMO. It makes you look a bit unprofessional. Hope this helps.
  4. It is at the top of organic results for local businesses. The first page organic results you see for other businesses are for websites that are not linked to Google Plus Local. I'm surprised you don't see local business results. Google returns locally blended results for "electrician Barnsley" both on mobile and PC for me. What type of device and browser are you using?
  5. It's in position A for local businesses, which is the fourth result on the page for me.
  6. I like those. How about if make the target look a bit more like a 'G'? http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b339/Nigedo/target3.png
  7. Pretty cool dude. Here's a comparison with the A as an archery-style target, using a geometric font (Futura): link to image
  8. I think you're placing far too much emphasis on the target motif, which is not memorable enough of itself. Here's a suggestion, try making the "A" of TARGET into the target motif with two support legs sticking out the bottom, like an easel, and see how that looks. Also, simplify the motif to only three bands and design the whole thing in monochrome to make sure you have composition down before you concern yourself with colour palette. HTH
  9. Google will treat you as a local business, so you should focus your attention on achieving the best visibility for that type of search results page. Your website is not optimised correctly for local-organic authority in both site structure and content. You should register your business with appropriate professional and index websites. You should create a Google Plus Local listing for your business and ensure it is correctly linked to your website. There is one right way and many (many) wrong ways to do this. Unfortunately I can't share more than that with you or there would be no reason for people to pay me to do it properly. Business websites that offer professional services are legally obliged to state membership of professional bodies, including any membership or licence number. You're trading under a business name, so you're legally obliged to display your business address (even if you're a sole trader), and if you're VAT registered you need to provide your registration number. HTH
  10. No. Replying to the customer's question is the obvious use of their personal data and you only need to state otherwise if you intend to use it another way. That's precisely what the law states. It says "the Act provides exemptions from notification for ... public relations". "Public relations" is legally considered an obvious use of personal data, which requires no notification (of the ICO or the customer). Public relations means relating to the public, which includes communicating with them. If this wasn't the case, you would have to legally advise a customer every time you add their details to your business phone. No they don't. It's not my site and no, you don't. In fact, at this point I consider you to be trolling.
  11. Indizine is correct about the SEO. You have some problems with how the business is being positioned for Google search algorithms. Your business is based in Sheffield and delivers in a 40 mile radius. This makes it a local business by Google's definition. *snip* -------------------------- Edit: Sorry, I realise now this isn't the case. You seem to deliver throughout the UK, according to your delivery page. This is confusing because you mention a delivery radius on the homepage. So, as a nationally delivering e-commerce website, it just needs focus on increasing organic authority, mainly through on site SEO. Content is king in organic SEO, so my advice is to integrate a WordPress blog into your site, using Fishpig's Magento extension, and use that to put out regular articles about your core product ranges. And be clearer about delivering to the whole UK.
  12. I'm not presuming anything. What I'm telling you is clearly written in the ICO information on the statute, which I just quoted, and common knowledge to anyone informed enough about it. If you can't accept facts when they are presented to you, I really can't help but you have no right to make spurious and uneducated claims about others' work. I have no intention of discussing this further with you, while you refuse to acknowledge what the law actually says.
  13. I know it's complicated but please try reading your own source information. It also says on the same page: You can read more about this in the 'Exemptions' section of the document, where it says: Again, it is not a legal requirement for all UK websites to display a 'privacy policy'.
  14. No Lizzy, you're wrong. I was referring to the Data Protection Act and there is no such requirement where the usage of personal data is obvious. The only personal data gathered by this website is done so through the contact form where people should already be aware that contacting someone by email means you provide them with your email address. Although it's commonly believed that all websites require a privacy policy by law, this is a myth perpetuated largely by web developers. Edit: To be clear, it would only become legally necessary to inform users if you intended to process their email addresses in some additional way, such as for marketing purposes. Otherwise, there really is no need.
  15. There is no legal requirement to display a 'privacy policy' on UK websites. There is only a legal requirement to advise users if you intend to use their personally identifiable data in a way that is not obvious. This automatically includes e-commerce websites, but not brochure websites. This website only collects personal information through the contact form, the use of which is obvious and it is therefore exempt from any such requirement.
