Website feedback please..

What search terms are you using to google your site?

 

Clicked your link....could having location settings on have something to do with it?

 

My main search terms are:

window cleaner sheffield

window cleaner barnsley

window cleaner rotherham

 

(I currently have poor ratings for Barnsley and Rotherham (26th and 25th respectively)

Google page 1 :huh:

Google map page 1 :huh:

 

Confused...that's after I have totally cleared all history, signed out of google and restarted firefox.

You come up on Google Maps for me but we are both in S5 so that explains why.

 

I looked in Incognito mode in Chrome, just to make sure, and your site comes up on page 2 in Google for "window cleaner sheffield" and "sheffield window cleaner".

 

I would get rid of this "We expect near perfect results with every clean." I can see what you are trying to say but some might see it has you will do a good clean but miss bits. Saying something like a thorough clean every time might work better.

 

You might want to consider Wordpress as you get some nice templates for it. Your site looks dated but I'm guessing it is new? Something more update would be nice and also bigger pictures at the top would help - too much text.

 

The first scrolling banner, I'm guessing that is companies you work with? But it doesn't say, at first I thought it was ads for B & M, a hairdresser, etc.

 

The banner at the top with your company name goes to the bottom on a mobile. On a mobile the first thing you see is your Youtube link.

 

I can never understand the whole DIY website approach, unless you know what you are doing of course. It wouldn't cost that much for someone to set up a Wordpress site and a nice template. Once a Wordpress site is set-up it is easy to edit it, so you wouldn't have to keep going back to a designer to make changes.

 

The Atkin and Son website looks so much more professional. Your site sadly does not say professional to me.

I've been messing around with my site for the last few months and just recently started to concentrate on SEO a little more, pretty much all done myself and is apparently scoring pretty high now that I have filtered out a lot of the junk but still some way to go.

 

So anyway, just after some honest feedback how it looks to an outsider as obviously my view is a little bias.

 

Thanks :thumbsup:

The latest version of your site looks much better than the black version you had.

 

I like that you add that bit about your clients - now they can't be confused with adverts. Also works better on mobile now - your company name stays at the top.

 

But you said earlier that you have a re-direct in place. But you just have 3 separate websites. None of them re-direct.

Oh I see what you mean, I’d never noticed that before. Not sure how I’ve done that as I’ve never created a site on there, just modified the htaccess file to redirect which it seems to make a half arsed effort at but keeps the url the same. I’ll look into that and thanks for bringing it to my attention.

Looking at the onsite SEO on the first one (the only one I looked) I can't see how anyone would find you unless they were googling your company name.

For a domestic window cleaner I would first try to catch someone local doing a round. When ours packed in I tried that but ended up finding one on here. I'm in Rotherham not Sheffield.

 

I would leaflet drop or put adverts in locals papers / magazines for domestic rather than expect the website to generate business for you.
