Disadvantages to the Company:
Data protection and the integrity of the system that handles the data are serious concerns. Computer viruses are rampant, with new viruses discovered every day. Viruses cause unnecessary delays, file backups, storage problems, and other similar difficulties. The danger of hackers accessing files and corrupting accounts adds more stress to an already complex operation. The availability of product details, catalogs, and other information about a business through its website makes it vulnerable to access by the competition. The Company sometimes had trouble in recruiting and retaining employees with the technological, design and business process skills needed to create an effective electronic commerce presence.

Disadvantages to the Customers:
Security continues to be a problem for Customers. Customers have to feel confident about the integrity of the payment process before they commit to the purchase and mention Personal Information about him. No reach to Rural People.

Suggestions how to improve this Website
Ensure unique page metadata:
Each page on your site must have relevant metadata based on the keywords Customer is trying to rank for.

Optimize images in each Page of this site:
Optimize images for Customer attraction ensuring all images are of high quality if possible.

Unify homepage versions:
If this sites have multiple versions of their homepage which will result in poorer performance then do check if required for it.

Improve navigation:
The idea behind improving navigation is to keep pages and category pages close to the main root. This will help search engines find and index the page quicker.

14 | P a g e

Improve loading times:
The time taken to load a page is important and for increasing conversion rates. To test how quickly or not your pages are loading and to view helpful suggestions use a page analyzer.

Add site maps:
An HTML site map and XML site maps will help both potential customers and search engines. The XML site map is useful in indicating to the engines which pages are available on the site and to ensure as many as possible get into the index. The HTML site map is used to allow customers to find product and category pages quickly.

Find and fix 404 pages:
Error pages resulting from old product pages or badly configured files might have some SEO value and should therefore be fixed. If you're using Google Analytics you can easily find these pages and fix or redirect them to a more appropriate page.

15 | P a g e

Encourage customer reviews:
Customer reviews for product pages can help persuade potential customers to make purchases and they can also be very useful for SEO. Because search engines will see fresh content every time they visit the page it will make the product page more important and increase its crawling rate (i.e. how often search engines visit the page).

Encourage link sharing:
One of the most important parts of SEO is building the number of links pointing to inner pages. If you have many pages a smart strategy is to use your customers to spread the word by encouraging sharing. Embedding a social sharing button such as AddThis or ShareThis will give customers sharing tools which are free and easy to use.

Make small changes and test:
The Company shouldn't make huge changes to an established site. By making too many changes at once, company will find it hard to understand and analyze what has worked and what hasn't. Consider making small changes and always test the outcome before continuing with further changes.
