re do my home page then rest of site
I have done all my seo, articles and backlinking and still do and am on page 1 position 1 for many keyword phrases. I am getting descent traffic but not many sales, I have gotten comments from this site and others that my site may look outdated but it is only a little over 2 years old.
I got to position 1 from asking peoples opinion and filtering through it and that is why I think I am in position 1 but the funny thing is many of the same people who liked all of the changes I made a year ago now say the site looks outdated and the homepage is too long.
I know my home page is a lot longer then many but I think all the information I have on it could be why I am in position 1 but like some have said it could be too long and people are coming some are staying and reading but not a lot of buying.
Even the people who come back don't buy much. So my big problem is I am a little afraid that if I change my home page to look more modern and glitzy and shorten the article that it could drop me from not only position 1 but from page 1 as well. I know the goal is to sell more but what about my traffic, if I am back on page 5 I won't get much traffic.
I am planning on running an A and B test and was wondering if doing so will effect my position if the new home page isn't as long or as good as the original. One thing i also think is many people think colored sites like mine don't look to flashy and clean while a white page with black print just seems crisp and clean thus the new homepage layout which I haven't finished quite yet. I also plan on changing the color scheme of the site if the test goes well but still worried that all the hard work it took to get to position 1 will go down the tubes if I change the home page. Just looking for opinions and ideas on what people think might happen. Thanks
