Hi! Critique on personal website

September 8, 2019 at 7:53am (Edited 7 months ago)

www.NathanRightnour.com

It's a simple site. Any and all feedback appreciated.

Site looks great. Color scheme is good and the abstract background works well with your font. I think you need to add a <title></title> tag - I'm only seeing the https://.... domain right now. I see you're using WordPress, so throw a SEO plugin on there (https://wordpress.org/plugins/wordpress-seo/) and that'll do the trick

On smaller devices, I would tighten up the spacing between elements. Because it's a 1 page website, you may want to try to fit everything on the single screen with minimal scrolling like the attached.

really like the gradient and background working behind it. Plus points on responsiveness.

The main critique is that the site can do so much more to convey nathan's work and value as a producer. Is there a way perhaps to showcase music, media? Perhaps you can think of ways to immerse the user into the website with audio/video.

Think of what you want your visitor to take away from the site- the only path to action is to contact nathan via email.

thank you for sharing!

Beautiful site, there's no doubt about that. Your contact form is a thing of beauty.

I like your page, it is simple and clean. As

said you may think about seo to increase visibility on search engines. Also you may check https://moz.com/beginners-guide-to-seo just for a quick start. Good job and thanks for sharing. ๐Ÿ˜Š

I agree that the SEO is crap :) probably because I have no desire for it to bring in leads as I don't work with leads. I guess I also felt that SEO was pointless because there's no content on the site! ๐Ÿ˜† so why even bother.

The site was more for show and I also I wanted great branding for the file-sharing service I built on the same domain - that's the part of the site people actually see often. You can see an example of that here: https://nrcs.link/2ww

Maybe you should make the content smaller a little bit,, so we dont need to scroll for that small space over here
