    • I think it looks nice and some of the conversions you offer are potentially very useful. The only thing I wonder about is how "sticky" the site is. I'd imagine that people will find you for specific conversions use them and then leave. How's it doing on the SEO front? You could probably do with some more content to engage visitors for longer.

        The niche of the site (online conversions) is quite difficult, as there are already established sites for this niche.
        However my site contains many useful and unique conversions, and it is mobile friendly, so it has big advantage over other online conversions sites.

          THIS ^^

          Your say your site has many useful and unique conversions and it is mobile friendly.

          That's fine but it doesn't answer how you are going to get traffic. You could build the best site in the world but how are people going to know about it? You have already said the niche is quite difficult...

            I agree that useful conversions and mobile friendly are not enough, they only help the site to gain regular users.

            I already started to promote the site using social networks, and wrote few articles with link to my site and I will distribute them. In the future I will also use SEO expert services to promote it more.

    Honestly, i do not like the way how you categorize the tools. I just feel like it is not easy to use .. maybe if you make the most popular conversions as a tabs and add the rest as a list to the sidebar?

    You also need to make the design more simple and more "professional look" as @Nuke07 said. For example, the logo looks nice but i think it's too big as well the menu. There is no need to add "about", "contact" at the front. I think it would be better if you change the menu position to the top header or to the footer. You know, most people don't care to know more about the site, usually people are looking on simplicity and ease of use.

    So i guess what is most important is the usability. Just consider that Google itself offers a super simple conversions "i usually use it myself".
    Good luck!

      As others were saying, this is a tough niche, especially with services like the ones that google offers, which automatically do conversions for you.

      That being said, maybe try to focus on some of the more obscure conversions. Unix timestamps, MD5, etc. I think you will have trouble ever ranking for a pound -> kg converter, but if you focus on the niche within the niche, you may be able to generate some traffic.

      Good luck!

        Yes this is what I am trying to do (and made some success already )
        Promoting unit converter is very difficult but promoting keywords like prime number checker or online chmod calculator is much easier.

        Also I have many useful converters, so some will definitely go up in Google.

    usability is good but i'm sorry to say this... the design is not appealing.

    as a first time visitor. i see a lot of things to do and that is great. if i knew your website was about converters, i like it. its straight forward and fast.

    but if i didn't know how i stumbled to your website, the first i'd do is close it. why? the design is making me back to the old 90s.

    first of all, the logo. if you really want to make it that big, at least make it appear good. on a large screen, it looks pixelated.

    second, you site is, like i said, is straightforward. no gimmicks no distraction or others (except for the first popup ads). but you put a search feature there. i don't think its necessary since i think people can see everything they want in the homepage. you also have 'categories' on the navigation and i think that is enough.

      I have already more then 50 conversions, and I create new convresions on a daily basis, so I can't put them all at the homepage. It is also important that people will be able to search for specific conversin, and look in a specific category.

    Nice design and very helful conversions. But the design is a little bit boring. You can improve it some more. I think your site is not SEO friendly. And SEO is very important for the success of your business.

      Indeed I focused on the conversions to make them useful for the visitors of the site, but I will start also to focus on SEO.

    I would choose other colors and also an other header. I would also use other fonts, try helvetica or verdana. Also the menu colors donĀ“t play together. Try to improve these things. The structure of your website is good!
    I have tested your webiste with different smartphone resolutions and yes it is responsive which is done well!

    If you need help you send me a pn, i can help you with that since these things are not hard to do. Also you should check out bootstraps which is good.

      The images are for categories and the bullet are for conversions.
      It will be impossible to find an image for each conversion, and there are 100 conversions...

    It's simple. It's what people will look for when they need to convert something. But there is little to no monetization to it unless that's your intention. The purpose of the site is clear, so people will come, do what they need and leave. These types of sites usually monetize with advertising which you will need to support the site. Your on a roll...
