It's been a while! (2010 since I last posted!) but I've been trying to "make it" ever since and still refuse to give up :lol:

I setup my new site https://www.itjustgotpersonal.co.uk in 2017 and I've made a few thousand 's of sales using adwords and merchant center but I was actually losing money so I stopped this until I review my strategy.

One area I'm really missing out on is organic traffic from google, I have pretty much none! I wondered if any of you could take a look at my site and give me any advise on SEO and getting organic traffic. I think I have the basics covered from what I've picked up over the years but I'm still not quite there.

One of my highest ranking pages (with a decent monthly search volume) is for "Personalised Cheeseboards" but I'm still only 38 on google UK. The URL for this is Here. If you could specifically review this page and maybe I can get it ranking even higher?

Any other comments would really be appreciated, design, product range, usability etc.

Thanks in advance!

Can live chat increase conversions? http://forums.seochat.com/conversion-optimization-119/can-live-chat-increase-conversions-496132.html Sun, 20 May 2018 20:48:14 GMT I'm not talking about a website in specific, it can be a normal websites for an offline business, an affiliate one or an e-commerce shop.

I've been reading about it for a while, and I'm curious to see if it is really worth it or not.

I've read that internet markets like Neil Patel vouch for it, saying that it can increase your conversion rate by 45% (source).

I'm aware that customer support is essential for any business, be it offline or online, and live chat seems like the perfect fast channel.

I've been looking for different options, and so far now I have a top-7: Kayako, Tidio, Olark, PureChat, LiveChat, SnapEngage and Zendesk Chat.

I'm hooked with Kayako right now and I will test it for a while, because I've read great reviews. What do you think about it? How well does it compare against the other options I've listed?

Your experience will be very valuable for taking the right decision, therefore, don't hesitate to share it ;) ]]>

Our business listing on Google show some unbelievable statistics. According to their insights, we have 21K "Listing on Maps" and 1K "Listing on Search". This is impossible. Have you ever faced this? How these are calculated? There is no way that our business will be searched 20 times more on maps than usual search. Please clarify.

345 is a much more realistic figure.
