Enhance SEO Performance
Improve your organic search traffic and online reputation with our SEO testing services. Search bots play a crucial role in driving traffic to your website, and our expertise helps you optimize your e-commerce pages to meet their requirements.
The image below shows perfect scores from Google Page Insights for a website we deploy. However, the average performance score for e-commerce websites is 32%.
Technical SEO ScoreDelivering perfect scores on Google Page Insights, we ensure your website stands out. The top causes of degraded SEO on e-commerce websites are:
- Omission of SEO metadata
- Poor image optimization. For example, image URLs under the domain name of the hosting provider with SEO-unfriendly names.
HTTPS TestingHTTPS security is an e-commerce requirement defined by PCI-DSS (Payment Card Industry - Data Security Standard). It protects data transfers between the web browser and the server. Anyone snooping in on communications cannot understand the messages. It also ensures the web browser connects to the intended web server.
CertificateA certificate is a public key for a website. The public key comes from the certificate authority, while the website administrator generates a matching private key. Both keys get physically stored on the website server. The result shown in the test is for a 256-bit Elliptic Key. Most websites use the older, less efficient, and less secure 2048-bit RSA key. Elliptic Keys are the way of the future because they scale to defend against quantum computing attacks.
Validate HTML Code QualityQuality HTML code is crucial for seamless rendering across various web browsers and optimal SEO performance. Browsers can deal with many mistakes, but how they respond is undocumented and inconsistent. Search bots are far more strict in interpreting SEO metadata within the page. Unfortunately, the number of HTML syntax errors on 15% of websites is so high that it crashes the W3C validation. We meticulously analyze your website's HTML code, eliminating syntax errors and ensuring adherence to W3C standards. Delivering perfect HTML code guarantees a consistent and error-free user experience, boosting your website's credibility and search engine visibility.
Exhaustive Network Scanning
Protect your website from potential security risks with our comprehensive network scanning services. Network scans detect open services listening for inbound network connections. An e-commerce website must block internet access to databases, file shares, and other insecure services. An insecure service lacks application-level firewalls or does not encrypt network traffic. Each open service expands the scope of security testing for compliance.A scan covers the network protocols TCP, UDP, and ICMP. Both TCP and UDP have ports numbered from 1 to 65536. HTTP is on TCP/80, and HTTPS is on TCP/443. Each service has a stated purpose in the design or gets disabled. Standard practice is one scan from the internet and secondary from behind each firewall.
Ensure Availability and Disaster Recovery
AvailabilityAvailability testing ensures the website can serve the planned user load. That includes the average number of user requests per hour and spikes due to the random peaks in user requests. Most hosting platforms block load testing. The hosting provider needs to turn off the DoS (Denial of Service) firewall rules to run a test. The test has little merit on a shared server infrastructure because the load from other websites and the number of sites on the server keep changing the accessible resources on the hosting platform.
Disaster RecoveryDisaster recovery tests simulate failures. Then recover the website and the supporting functionality, like the payment history. Validating recovery from many scenarios makes a fast fix to real-world events more probable. In addition, it provides a method to prototype new recovery methods that restore services in less time and cost less to maintain. Standard failure modes include:
- Purge the website of malware and ransomware.
- Human errors when applying updates.
- Installation of software found to be defective after applying the update.
- Failure of website hardware.
- Lose access to the internet by the data center.
Testing EnvironmentsThree types of environments fulfill different system requirements. The time spent on each depends on the perceived risk and website requirements. Each one is in support of the business or production environment.
