  • New website - what do you think?

    Been working on hubby's new site and would appreciate your thoughts and comments on it please

    It is still in the rough stage with a lot more to be added but hopefully we are going in the right direction.......

    What a delightful site.

    Just two things, you need to update your news as it still has info about fairs you were doing last year. And in your shop some of the prices are coming out as £6.5 rather than £6.50. I thought that the little buzzing bees would annoy me but I really liked them.

    But overall, it is very clear and easy to read and use.

      Nice site but it did take a long time to load for me. I was left with a blank blue screen and only hung around as I wanted to give you some feedback. As a customer, I may well have left before getting into the site proper (the status bar was telling me the page loading was complete), By using Flash only on your home page, you are risking visitors not seeing anything if they have Flash disabled.

      I did find your FAQ page difficult to read as your safety tips and T&Cs are split into a third of a page each and are very wordy.

      Your colours are very calming and I love your little bee logo! Your products are well photographed and look lovely so I am sure you will do well with them.

      I am at Rudgwick too so will probably see you there! Are you inside the marquee or on an outside pitch?

        Thank you Roslet for the feedback, wasnt sure whether or not to take off the fairs we done last year, just so people knew what we have already done, and working on the £6.5 as that is bugging me too and for some reason it wont come out as £6.50

        Glad you liked it

          Thats a good point Ali and will look at changing the flash on the homepage xx

          Mmmm I did wonder that too - thank you x

          Glad your like the colours and the bee logo, the previous site was more honeycomb in colour and design and it wasnt that easy on the eye thankfully hubby agreed that this looked better

          Inside the marquee what about you?

              Hi there,

              I have had a look at your site!!

              I also looked behind the scenes at your coding you need a better title text instead of just <title>Bs Candles</title> this is where you put your important keywords!!!

              your meta description and meta keywords needs to be done as search engines like Google will not find you or if they do they will think the site is still being built and discard you from there system!!!

              Also you must remember using flash search engines rely on words not pictures also not everybody has strong internet connection as it can take a while to load your site.

              If you want any further help drop me a line
              Overall not bad of a website.

                Really nice website! Well Done. It loaded up very quickly for me and I found it easy to navigate and the content was to the point. The imagery and general appearance is also in keeping with the theme. I love it

                Beeswax candles.. very interesting! Do they smell like honey when they burn?

                    Yes the natural ones do, [the yellow ones] each and every one or batch will smell slightly different depending on where they were pollenated ... the light they give off is wonderful as anyone else that uses natural beeswax will agree

                      That would be good Ali as we are new to all this craft fair stuff and getting really quite nervous

                        I love it! Very dynamic and easy to use, great layout and I love the use of lots of images on the site.

                        Good work
