In-depth Review of Matrimony Website by Suyog Ranade Vivaha aka Shree Suyog Vivaha Mandal

Here I have written complete in-depth review and analysis of Suyog Ranade Vivaha or Shree Suyog Vivaha Mandal Matrimony website that I used for 6 to 7 months that was mainly on WhatsApp groups because of bad user experience on website format. I reported the following issues to them but they were not ready or in the right frame of mind to accept it.

So I just unregistered myself from their portal and get out of their WhatsApp groups.

Following are the points that I noticed about their matrimony service:

Point 01: No or Failed Business Model. Matrimony section mainly runs on WhatsApp Groups of 250 people. The group is unmanaged sometimes people post their profiles multiple times some peoples even post a political or comic forwards. Because of all members in open WhatsApp group, there is no contact number security or number privacy. Sometimes admins or business owners posts repeated WhatsApp Messages to asking every user to register and pay a fee to use WhatsApp group or website. Admins even warn users they will remove everyone who never pays matrimony section fee which showcases the main point that there is no thought behind Successful Business Model or Revenue Generation.

Point 02: No Privacy or Security: Because of the open group with visibility of contact numbers to everyone users are prone to scammers and fake profiles or spam calls

Point 03: Suyog Ranade Vivaha had a loss of complete user profile data and even registered accounts data three times while upgrading their website and also transferring the website to their new domain. They had to ask every user individually to reregister for their website again and again. A failed system.

Point 04: Website owners had to change Web Domain as similar web domain was used by its competitor with small name difference. It shows no thought about branding or company structure. Because of this duplicate domain by competitors, Suyog Ranade Vivavha’s Matrimony users were registering wrongly to competitors website thinking competitor that they are original company. This sows loss of identity and company branding. And a loss of revenue.

Point 05: Even you can see in screenshots website structure is broken and faulty with buggy coding and development.

Choosing between Cloud Storage And Having Multiple Computers i.e. one at home, second at the office and another for being on the move / Tablet or Mobile.

So for the last two-three days, I started preparing for User Experience (UX) Professional Certification from a reputed institute.

 
So I have books from them for the course that I attended, then I have notes collected through websites like nngroup.com & usability.gov that I want to chunk information in short notes & collect them for future reference.

So what is the solution to this problem?

Clashes between Cookies for Comments WordPress Plugin Versus Google Adsense

After reading few security guidelines on popular blogs & WordPress TV I realised I have to optimise my WordPress installation for less comments.

 
So I installed Cookies for Comments WordPress Plugin.

 
First Thing that I saw that,

 
Whitespace (Strip) below Footer… So I fixed that with CSS

 
with this code:

 

img[alt="css.php"] {
	position: absolute;
	clip: rect(1px 1px 1px 1px); /* IE6, IE7 */
	clip: rect(1px, 1px, 1px, 1px);

  4. I personally can’t trust Facebook & It’s Intelligence & It’s Code & It’s Founder
  5. Facebook Shares are dead investment
  6. I can’t put my business brand in hands of untrustworthy behaviour of Facebook Coding staff who displays my posts on Business Page’s at their own will i.e. they display my post when they want it to show to people
  7. Facebook is untrustworthy
  8. Facebook has multiple fake identities of same person on Facebook friend suggest
