Hi,

I have created a website dedicated for conversions.
I intend to put there almost every converter or calculator you can think of, and the site already contains many.

Please review my site, tell me if you like it and what should be improved.

My site: Online Conversions

Thank you!

    Hey,

    This is the standard wordpress theme for Wordpress and you have not even care to create your own header. You did not set up this website, just added content, so i'm wondering why you place this in design section and ask for review...

    90% in the Internet knows this theme.

    Best,

    This is definitely not for promotion.
    I changed many things in the default theme, but indeed I didn't have time yet to change the header...
    I also created many pages containing conversions developed by me.

    In any case your feedback will help me a lot as I am new to Wordpress.

    Hi, it is a god looking website, but you could try to improve the navigation to the converters it self somehow in the home page. maybe give a full list of them, because you still have a lot of free space. also this header is too big, at least for my eyes

    Get rid of the entire navigation except for "home". Now take every subpage from within "categories" and put that in the navigation (and maybe "all conversions").

    Home | Unit Conversions | Numbers Conversions | Text Conversions | Calculators | Miscellaneous | All Conversions

    The rest provides no value. Put it in the footer and make the site easier to navigate.

    Great tips, I already updated my site accordingly.

    Any other comments?

    I don't want to be mean but you can spend much more time on this website than what you have already spent.

    Get ride of the annoying header, and actually create a footer. Redesign the menu bar and add some content. It looks like nobody cares about his website.

      Actually the site is two weeks old
      So I still have a lot of work, but the site is progressing all the time, as I working hard on improving the layout, and adding new conversions...

        It may just be me, but I dislike your pop under. It's odd no one else mentioned it.

        As mentioned, the stock header needs to go. Get something at fiverr or build your own in gimp. Or just "borrow" a header you find in public domain until you can get something customized to the site. People are not likely to take your site seriously with the current header.

          Thanks, I updated the header.

    Probably you will not like my review but at least i am pretty honest you.
    I think you pick a theme that is quite simple for 2014 nearly 2015

    Its almost a simple word page in a website... so to me its really crappy, its one of those sites where the visitor donĀ“t stay for more then 1-2s

    You need to invest time to it if you want to succeed...

    put a nice header, revolution slider would be a must to have.

    Add images, videos, widgets.

    In terms of design i would find something better to work with, probably would buy a premium theme since this one too basic.

    Then add social signals , you know facebook, twitter, pinterest, etc...

    another thing that i have noticed its that you need to go from page 1 to page 2 to page 3 until reach the calculator, why dont you do it with a menu and sub-menus so the user will reach the info in the first page.

    Secondly the advertise that you have in the footer is not related at all with your website content, so it will not convert at all...

    If i were you... i would deleted the entire site and rebuild from scratch using a decent theme.

    I'm also guessing that this is for promotional purposes. It would make a lot more sense to put some effort into customizing the theme fist, then ask for a review on the site. Right now it's way to basic.

      I'm sure that taking a bit more time to flesh out your site, will prove helpful when asking folks to take time to look at it.

      All the best!

    I will work on improving the layout, but please remember this is a site intended for conversions I don't think videos will fit this site...

    Please also review the conversion that I developed, I thinks that their design is simple and easy to use.

    I have to do many clicks to get what I want, I think you might reduce the process to make thing work more conveniently

    I strongly recommend accordion menus.
    Currently your site require so many clicks to get to what I would actually need. Plus it's very difficult to navigate/go back if I missclick once.

    Thanks! Actually I have a page in the main menu called All Conversions, and in the homepage I have all the categories because I don't want to overload the homepage with links...

    The site looks ok but I would change the design a little bit - it always help to have a look at some good website and copy some things, change small things like colors. Here's what I would check out just for example:
