Yup Let’s see what can we learn from their design. Once again we’ll learn about Placement, and please remember it, if we’re talking about Placement, it doesn’t mean that it’s only about Ads placement, but all elements on your blog can give a side effect to your Money Revenue. And in this making money online world, that’s the important right?
Watch Your Width!
Just take a look at bloggingtips.com, go read some tips there, choose an article you like. Don’t forget to count your time since your first come. How long have you been?
Bloggingtips.com has a super-super wide post area. So it doesn’t need a long time to get my eyes become so tired. Just think about moving your focus from left to the way so far right, and then back the left again and just do that again and again until finally you’re successfully finished it. It’s kind a hard work just to read those articles.
Watch Your Navigations!
Ok, now I’m in the blog already, I’m a new comer and what am I looking for in this about blogging tips site? hey.. Categories. I love categories. let see.. hm… blogging(28), Competitions(2), Design and Coding(8) and bla.. bla.. that’s nice. The Categories list is pretty clear. But I’m a visitors right? and Visitor is a King. I want more! I want more then just Categories. Instead Categories, I want to have some Lates Posts may be? Most Read Posts? or Best Post would be fine. Hey, it’s a site about blogging tips rite? It must have tons of tips rite? So, could you just pick me the best you have there? I have pretty much confuses with this colors here. black sidebars, one on the far left and about 10 years light speed on the right.
Oh.. hey.. there she is, I found the last posts on the right sidebar. Where? Where is it? I can only see subscribe, about, about me, about page, about the authors, about them, about bla.. oh yes, I can see it now. uh.. but that is Last Forum Threads? No.. no.. go a little bit down. There you’ll see The Lates Posts list.
Hm.. why don’t they put them all grouped together? I think Categories, Last Posts, and Recent Comments would be better to be in a single line. [please don't say you can don't know there is a Recent Comments list.]
By grouping them, About Me, About the Authors, Featured Authors [what's the different about those 2 last entries?], Recent Readers [and why do you have Recent Readers Title and Recent Readers Sub Title?], Top Commentators can be grouped in to one single line too.
Sponsors! am.. Sponsor! eh Sponsors! Man.. Which is the right sponsor? Text-Link-Ads on the right? or Hostgator on the left? Since both of them are affiliates, I think you can get them into one spot. oh and that Earn Cash too. I Missed it.
Just be honest with your blog and your navigation. You won’t loose anything by doing that. In fact, it will gives some trustworthy from your readers.
Nope, It’s been mentioned before. let’s just skip it.
What next? hm.. oh, I missed the Upper Menu.
Let’s see, hm.. Home, Forum, Archives, Contact. I don’t see any functions of them there. It just doesn’t work for me. hey.. I’m a visitors remember? I can talk as whatever I like.
And The Page List, just the second line below The First Upper Menu,
Blogs that links here.
hm.. I don’t think it needs for it is a site that providing tips, just almost like a portal, It just look like a newbies there. Blog that links here? It’s for newbie blogger!
4 User Online.
???@#@$%??? just throw it away dude! hide it hurry! It’s again showing that your site’s just look like a newbie blogger site. Except if you have already had about 2.000 Users Online, or some like that, you can expose it there
Blog Theme, Blogging Faq, Links
I’m starting to think that Pages List is better to be in the sidebar not upthere.
What the…. Are you providing tips to blog or selling domains dude? drop it!
Hey.. You have Top Posts?!! Ohh I didn’t see it. [You know what I mean dude, skip!]
hh.. I neither can see what is it for? so.. skip!
Well, I guess the second line upper menu is just going to be deleted.
What is my suggestions?
Hey that is another newbie question. Just read what I wrote. But OK, One thing. I think it would be so much better if Kevin just redesign his site again. If you still want to have the big banner down there, why don’t you make your site width just the same as the banner width? wider doesn’t mean better, It just give you some more crowd.
