    Website tips

    Post  Nitefinder49 on Thu Jun 14, 2012 10:44 am

    Hi guys,

    Just wondering if you could take the time to have a look at my website and give me some feedback. I'm basing the website around photography and nerf and the website link is http://www.sydneyhobbies.com/

    Thanks for your time,

    A descent effort, but you ned a few pointers for sure:

    1. Choose between a blog or a website, and don't take the name from somewhere else... Eg. OzNerf
    2. Make the website/blog targeted at one audience. I can guarantee you someone interested in Nerf probably isn't interested in aviation or ways aquaponics.
    3. Put lots of info on there. Keep the juices flowing and don't get your posts get 'stale'.
    4. Get some layout and design work done. A website is an easy one to lay out. Without a premium Wordpress account, you can't make your own template though.
    5. Design some graphics. It's not hard and doesn't take long, but it goes a long way in improving your site/blog.
    6. See if your being effective at reaching your audience using Google Analytics.
    7. Post interesting things. I can almost guarantee you that the majority of readers own a Nitefinder or 5 and probably don't need a review.
    8. Make some good Stefans and then take pics. They're not the best quality, as portrayed by the picture. Also, just use blue/pink foam and a snap cap/sili cap. Our American counterparts don't seem to have cracked on in regards to dart standardisation and ease of making. Just keep up with the trends, especially when all that's needed is so easy to get.

    That's about it. I have personally run a blog for quite a while before moving around a bit and then settling on gaming, of which my site gets around 300 views a day. My old Nerf blog (www.nerfingdownunder.blogspot.com) has over 40,000 views clocked up on it, so I recommend taking my advice.

    Hi, one question. Well actually two. How did you start getting traffic to your website and where did you get your information from?

    I either published news or wrote my own reviews. I also posted some mods and such. As for traffic, I actually started with a comment on SG Nerf, but then I got recommended by Urban Taggers and got a butt-load of Google leads from Longshot Vs. Longstrike and my Barricade review.
