    Review of coolkaboodle.com

    hey all

    coolkaboodle.com

    a new (couple weeks) site i have launched to collate various cool products and gifts from around the web.

    YES, it is an affiliate site and links to buy take you off to amazon or other affiliate sites (not all)

    so,
    - feedback on design, speed of load, layout, navigation and general usability.

    - any feature requests you think may improve the site...

    - and, does it annoy you (to the point you wouldnt return) that the links open up a new page with amazon etc???!!!!

    thanks
    all

    I'm in Malaysia and it took almost 20 seconds for the home page to load. I suggest you use Google Page Speed to look for ways to speed it up.

    https://developers.google.com/speed/pagespeed/

    I like the idea of the website - loads of images of cool products to help you find a gift or just something to tempt you.

    I'd like you to add the price to the item on hover.

    Good luck with the site!

    Desing is very good but your site is loading very slow.

    I just tested again and this time it loaded in 2 seconds and images loading within 4 seconds. It was probably an issue with my connection that caused the delay earlier.

    Your site still loads slowly in my computer. Not to mention there's not enough information on each image to help visitors identify.

    Coolkaboodle,

    I ran your URL through Google Page Speed and it got a 59 out of 100. You might want to take a look at your server response time and follow some of the other suggestions there.

    Other than that, the one thing I would suggest as far as design is your description of the site. It doesn’t need to overpower the rest of the elements but it could be a little more prevalent. Try making your description in a bigger font or make it stand out in some other way.

    Best,

    Shawn

    I do not like pop-up that appears in the search.

    Loading time of page: 8.6 seconds.

    Webdesign is simple, but exactly must should.
