The first step to having a successful website is having good web design. If you don’t have quality web design on your page no one is going to want to stay on your site. I think that it is a good idea to have your site checked by a lot of people before you publish it. By focusing on this aspect of your site you can get a lot more people on your page. This can also improve website speed.

Hi Wes,

That is strange mate, because you don’t know I exist and I feel like I know you very well (that’s your awesome podcast’s fault! :) )

I wanted to share something after scrolling through this post. Scrolling is a keyword here ;)
I know you are all about SEO and stuff. You must be doing something well if you rank high for such competitive terms being white hat. Or..? Well you never mentioned any dodgy techniques on podcast :)

Here we come to the point. User experience.
You know, I was listening to ALL of your podcasts at work for last 2-3 weeks, but never actually visited the site, so finally I did and somehow I landed on this very post (btw. 2 seconds is more than acceptable limit – – they know what they are talking about, you can trust me on that, I do SEO for living, just trying to break through to more arty side of life and do designs and stuff)

Anyway, I said that “scrolling” is a keyword. I was really trying to read all the info packed in the infographics, but I gave up after few seconds. Both on pc and mac. It is just hard to read mate. Infographic by infographic without a second for eyes to rest. Yet on hi-res screens they are really narrow. cmd+ is my friend but still hard to read.

This is your reader and listener moaning session only. I’m your loyal subscriber and won’t give up because of such details, only thought that I can help you to improve.

Yup. Great show mate (I think I’m in love with Mikelle, hash! My wife can’t see this!, but I love her voice). Keep it up chaps

Hahaha, I hope I haven’t burned all bridges to get in touch with you in the future by saying all that stuff.

Great site mate, great content and awesome podcast
Take care

Kind regards
