Below are all the evaluation criteria we are going through with every nominated store. The Best Newcomer and Best Store evaluation baseline is the SEO Audit report (50% ranking weight). You can access your baseline SEO audit score HERE.
- Structure: Overall store structure, finding products or content, and more.
- Navigation: Primary and secondary navigation structures, internal and external links on the website, and more.
- SEO: SEO audit evaluating the most basic SEO elements (not applicable to the Best design category).
- Content: Content optimised for users and search engines, Hx tags review, storyline, content value, and more.
- Image And Color Quality: Image quality and consistency, resolution, colours, social media icons, and more.
- Accessibility: Accessibility for all types of devices and browsers, tags, mobile devices appearance, loading speed, active links, and more.
- Generic appearance: Online presence, overall store design, social media visibility, and more.
On the day of nominations closing, each nominated store (apart from the Design category) is scanned with an SEO Assistant audit scanner (link). Then within two weeks, each store has assigned a ranking by the evaluation team from 1 to 10 in each category above. As the last criterion, jury members add one more evaluation ranking from 1 to 10 for each store. And finally, the evaluation score considers all attributes based on assigned weight and winners are announced.
