I decided after reading Bjorn’s article (new window) that i would check out where most people that view my site come from. I signed up a couple of days ago with an online tracker (new window) that is able to record how many people visit my site, where they come from and lots of other data. Unfortunately its only been going for a couple of days, but was still interesting to see my top referrals.
Anyways, i’ve added a wee thing on the sidebar that will show all readers where in the world people are looking at my site. There’s a wee world map and anytime someone looks at my site it will show a wee red dot for where they are in the world! How cool is that! It’s a free thing which you can add to your own site by visiting their homepage (new window).
Feedback: i want to hear your thoughts on the ads now on the site, the Firefox button at the top and the Google search bar. It is all changeable so i can easily move them around, or take them away all together. Would love any comments you have on it, or suggestions if you want me to try moving them around. Infact, this applies to my whole site…oh avid readers…tell me how to make it better! My recent ventures (led and guided by my dear older sibling Mullac (new window)) into learning the basics of PHP and CSS mean that i can makes some pretty cool changes all on my own! Bjorn (new window) mentioned that i should change the font, which is a great start, but didn’t say why. Do you find it hard to read? Is it the wrong colour? Etc etc.
Any constructive comments will be greatly appreciated. I view my site on a 15.4″ widescreen monitor (currently at 1280 x 768) so it probably looks different on my sexy computer, to how it does on yours…
