We are often asked to review websites for customers, to find out exactly why the website isn’t getting any hits.  This usually means the website is not being found on Google search or other search engines because of website errors.  It’s easy to find out if you have website errors costing your business hits.

With the holiday season coming up fast for e-commerce businesses it’s even more important that these websites are fully optimized. Not being found on Google or being on page 10 and having pages that load slow, is not going to help business.  First people have to be able to find you and secondly they need to want to stay on your site. Slow load pages, prevent customers sticking around.   Also, bear in mind that increased traffic can cause your website to crash if you aren’t prepared.
