Where I've Been Going Wrong
After a year of toiling, trying to create a useful website for sports enthusiasts, I've made many mistakes. I know I've chosen a very hard niche to rank in but as I've put so much work into it , I'm not giving up yet.
My idea was to show many popular weekly professional sports fixtures on the front page, with start times/kick off times in all time zones, so viewers didn't have to scour the web in various locations. I've sort of achieved this after having a script written for me for the various time zones. I use a plugin called 'Content Blocks' for each different sports. This seems to work fairly well.
Since I've joined WA, I'm now understanding how the traffic part comes together. I initially had my discussion section turned off thinking that it was not relevant for a sporting fixture. However, today I've turned all discussions back on knowing that it will help my rankings.
Being an Aussie, my site contains leagues that are more interesting for this demographic. That doesn't mean other countries leagues are not included. English Premier League Football & NFL are interesting to us along with Formula 1, MotoGP etc.
It's amazing how addictive it is to keep my site going. I really enjoy learning the differnt elements that all come together. Thanks to WA and the community for helping me along.
So if you get an opportunity, head on over to www.sports-fixtures.com and leave a comment for discussion.
