Any website's or blog's home page is very important and in my opinion,it should be carefully crafted and not just slapped together.

I've spent a lot of time figuring out what exactly should be on my page and how it should appear. Finally, I have created the best home page yet (for my blog).

In this video I will explain all the details and thought that went into this process. It's also important to note that this re-design drastically improved my bounce rate (and probably contributed to better search engine rankings).

Don't be shy to comment and ask questions about YOUR homepage!
Enjoy the video

p.s. I created a second video showcasing and explaining the configuration of a typical blog post here: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/the-secre...

Enjoy!

Given me some ideas for my site. It's heavy on text but has minimal design so not sure what to do at present....

Hey Alex...great video. I've gone with a static home page too and have noticed my bounce rate is much better too...I think adding a photo of yourself is a good idea...think I'll do the same. Thanks and well done!

I am so happy to hear you liked the video and great to hear your results ;)
I know a lot of people aren't comfortable with putting up their photo but it works for me. If you don't mind try, then why the heck not? :D

Hey, Cena!

I like your design, very simply and fresh. One thing I would suggest is adding a tag line or something like that so the visitor knows what the site is about. When I come to your page I have no idea what the website is about so I am tempted to leave.

I am using Bloom for the opt-in pop-up. It's a paid plugin. I think there might be some free alternatives but I haven't found any good ones.

I like how your "above the fold" content is pretty simple and not overwhelming. Job well done ;)
