  2. I took on board some of your suggestions, which are now at a test site http://www.kirkbymicrowave.com/ That's hidden from Google with a robots.txt file. The original site is at https://www.kirkbymicrowave.co.uk/ I took the opportunity to change the name of a few URLs, and generally have a somewhat more structure directory layout. So there will be a good few broken links, but I think you get the basic idea.

    Error in HTML

    Hi guys & gals, I have a WordPress site that has been live for over a year, there are 2 versions of it (2 different languages) but on the main site (English version) there is an error in the HTML. Looking in the header.php file I don't any issue. Attached is a screenshot of where it says the error is compared to the actual code in the .php file. The other language version of the site is fine (it's a duplicate)... *The 'og' in the <html> tag is from an SEO plugin, I have disabled this to see if it fixed the problem but it hasn't. Thanks for the replies!

    I'm not going to comment on the design because it's not yours, and I don't have much time to go through the whole site, but you are offering way too much, studies show that having lots of options actually puts customers off, I'd seriously consider this https://hbr.org/2006/06/more-isnt-always-better
  6. Not really. It's just one page and the main menu you need to update. Everything else can stay the pretty much the same.
  7. Thank you for the suggestion. I can see where you are coming from, but it needs a pretty serious re-write. The main sellers of competivate products are the following companies, all of which are very large. At least Keysight has a turnover in excess of $1 billion / year. Keysight https://www.keysight.com/us/en/home.html Anritsu https://www.anritsu.com/en-GB/ Rohde&Schwarz https://www.rohde-schwarz.com/uk/home_48230.html Rosenberger https://www.rosenberger.com/en/index.php
  8. The problem you have is you know all there is to know about VMAs but not everyone is the same. They could be a researcher in a lab with the kit in front of them with a vague instruction from a supervisor to go get a widget and make it work. Your website needs to lead people to the information they need not assume they already know what they need. Hence my comment about the support page. A single page broken down into sections will give them a start. This can them lead on to other pages until they finally get to the 'how to' guide they need. You linked to the calibration kit selection page but I'd never have thought to look in the FAQ page. My first port of call would always be 'support'. And in the FAQ dropdown you have General and Technical but both go to the same page which is very confusing especially as it's got sales in middle. All the information is on the site - but you need to know where to look to find it. A simpler menu bar would help: Home | Reviews | Sales | Support | Contact us No dropdowns. Each link leads to a sub-page with links to deeper pages. Keep it simple. To put a background behind the header, do the same as you did for the <footer> Then set a max width for the main content to manage the number of words per line. The likelihood is most visitors will be using a desktop to access the site to build it for them. Saw this: "This question has been answered in some other documents,..." but you don't tell me what documents or where to find them.

    Alt attributes.
  10. If you check search console it should have a 'linked from' if it's known. I normally find junk like this is links from scrape directories as they often end up appending your urls with parameters, like links to yourdomain.com?url=yourdomain.com. Good to know your site correctly returns 404, I've seen many a case where a site allows this sort of thing, ends up with a hell of a lot of junk pages.
  11. Even though you have a revolution slider added on to your website there is a limit in size of using images on to the slider because if we use more images the it will automatically reduce the website loading speed. In the gallery section whether your images are compressed and then added to the website? Because the page speed of your website is very important to generate leads for your business.
  12. Do you have the marketing strategy of the website with you? Because before going to market we need to find out the ways where our target audience are present and how we can attract them. Preparing a effective marketing strategy involves a detailed analysis of your website and it helps your website to generate some serious leads too.
  13. I have gone through your website and it is really good! One of the major issues in your website is loading time when I click on each and every page it takes almost a minute to load and we have to fix that first even though you switch your website to WordPress because website loading speed really matter more.

    Scheduled tweets

    Yes I have used Hootsuite before and it is worth buying too. Because you can actually schedule your posts on all social media platforms at an affordable cost. One of the best social media management tools in the recent times .
  15. There's no reason to use any icon fonts in this day and age, issues with them are rife, they also make for an accessibility nightmare. What you want to use is SVG. Even as far back as 2014 it was clear that icon fonts should no longer be used: https://css-tricks.com/icon-fonts-vs-svg/
  16. Yeah I agree to @drk11 wordpress really has a wide variety of themes which can be customized and implemented in the best possible way to get a custom mobile friendly website.

    This is really a super cool website! But there are some errors that needs to be fixed immediately and one of the important issue is ALT tags are missing for 15 images in your website. ALT tags are very important for a image to rank well in search results. Google analytics code is also missing on your website without that you cant keep track of your conversion and how many potential customers have actually visited our website.

  19. Looking in Google Analytics, I see a 404 error for this page https://www.kirkbymicrowave.co.uk/sales/85054/Agilent+8510C+boot+upWe+TalerangA I have no idea why Google should try to search such a page at all. Now the first bit https://www.kirkbymicrowave.co.uk/sales/85054/ seems perfectly reasonable - such a page exists. Although the manufacture (Agilent) and a particular network analyzer (8510C) are both related to my site, there's never been a page with the name Agilent+8510C. But at least I can understand where those terms come from. Now where the hell does boot, upWe, and TalerrangA come from I have no idea. At least I know what the first word (boot) means, but I don't think its one the website, but the last two are certainty not on the website, and never have been. It seems as though Google has used a random letter generator to generate a URL, then find a 404 error
  20. I'll think about that one. Well, is the "About Us" pull-down menu not a set of links to legal, privacy, contact, and now bank details? Surely that depends on what sort of device you look at it on. You surprise me with that comment. I was thinking it was perhaps a bit large. A look on Amazon for example finds most text smaller. Keysight, who sell VNA calibration kits too, have much smaller text on their page for one of their calibration kits https://www.keysight.com/en/pd-1000002016%3Aepsg%3Apro-pn-85052B/standard-mechanical-calibration-kit-dc-to-265-ghz-35-mm?cc=US&amp;lc=eng I don't know how to do that, but I admit it looks quite nice. I'll see what others say about that one. Based on experience, I find most people have some idea of what they want when they approach me. A VNA is not the sort of instrument you just go out and buy and not know much about one. Professional instruments range for a few thousand pounds to a few hundred thousand pounds - some might well be over £1.,000,000, but I am not sure about that. Also, if someone looks on the "support on VNAs", they would know if they have just bought an Agilent instrument, an Anritsu instrument, a Copper Mountain instrument etc. The somewhat odd cases is HP, Agilent or Keysight, as originally HP made test equipment and many other things. Then test equipment and biomedical stuff was spit off to Agilent. Then the test equipment was split off to Keysight. I don't know how long Keysight will keep that name, before it gets split off once again. The thing that seems to cause newcomers a bit of a headache is they buy a VNA with N connectors on it, so assume they need a calibration kit for N connectors. But the calibration kit should match the connectors on the device they are testing, not the instrument. I try to address that here https://www.kirkbymicrowave.co.uk/FAQ/How-do-I-select-the-right-calibration-kit/ but I find people most confused about that topic.
  21. Thanks for your reply @fisicx. I changed the icons to use the square set, but the problem is still there. I have added the background using css when it hovers. The instagram icon does not have have a background on it to change. Only the color. That is why that one is working as intended.

    Tourist Website Advice Needed

    Do any of you have experience with Air Bnb clones, Magento etc?
  23. It's because that's the size of the icons you have chosen. The white background you see on hover is part of the icon. The instagram one is OK. These are maybe the ones you need: https://fontawesome.com/icons/facebook-square?style=brands https://fontawesome.com/icons/youtube-square?style=brands
  24. I have been working on a site which is using Font Awesome icons. I want them to display a different background colour on hover. I have got it to work, but the background colour is bigger than the actual icon, so the background displays around the icon. What I want is for the background to change, but not be bigger than the icon. The issue can be viewed by clicking the link above and hovering over the Facebook and Youtube social media icons. I have been trying to solve this, but with no success. Can anyone help and point me in the right direction?
  25. It's a bug of lighthouse. If webpage is not blocked by robots file then it will surely index that page. dont worry just ignore that error shown on lighthouse.
  26. Personally I wouldn't have a gradient in the footer. But that's just me. I would also add a menu with links to your about, legal, privacy and contact pages. Also consider limiting the width of the main content. As it's for technically minded people aim for 16-18 words per line. And increase the font size a tad. And think about a full width header background colour. Look at how amazon do it. In the main navigation made each top level item link to a new page - it's more intuitive. When I hover on Support for VNAs unless I know what those things are I won't know which one to click. But if you binned the dropdown and linked to a support page you could list all the support topics with a short explanation before a 'read more' link. Consider maybe just having a single support page broken down into topic/products. Everything seems to be spread about over a number of places. Great if you know where to look but not so good for someone who has only just brought a VNA and doesn't know where to begin.

  28. Thank you. I think the site is looking a bit better than it did a few weeks ago, thanks to the help I have received here.
