Example Site Wednesday: Hockey/Baseball Talk

This week, for our Example Site Wednesday, we focus on a site that delivers the latest news in the world of hockey and baseball. ‘HBT’ is a site that is dedicated to providing a place for people to come, learn, and discuss what’s happening in the world of these sports.

Hockey/Baseball Talk does a great job of regularly updating the website and integrating videos and pictures in their posts to keep people entertained. The old saying “Picture is worth 1,000 words” really applies to this website.

QUICK TIP: Instead of only using words to describe what your business does, use pictures to show what you have to offer. Photos bring your site to life and help sell your products or services. Photos also break up the text, which makes the site easier on the eyes, thereby enabling people to linger longer on the site.

Here are some other Webs features that HBT makes great use of:

Facebook Connect to easily integrate their website with the largest social network on the web – It also makes becoming a member to the website super simple for visitors
Forums for visitors to discuss in-depth about posts or other things that you may have missed
-Top bar navigation for easy viewing and browsing of the site. HBT makes great use of drop down menus to increase page numbers while keeping navigation simple. (Not sure how to use drop down menus? Learn How)

All in all, HBT is a solid site with attention to detail. It is easy to see why their community is growing.

Think this site is great? Think your site is better? Leave a comment below and maybe your site will be chosen for next week’s example site Wednesday.

Until next time, happy site building!

    so, that’s your came then. Ignore civilised questions. Well i’ve got a message for you, if your gonna be part of the team, then you’ve got to play the game. I have tried to play but nobody will sub me on. What am I supposed to do when I can’t play the game.

    Please consider my site next week or sometime in the near future. I have a genealogy website with a very rapidly growing membership. It is finally appearing in the search engines now and even more people are visiting and making use of it.

    like this – thanks for putting up an info only site!!
    The forum will grow with the the site and more pictures can come.
    My only comment would be on the Trivia, Fantasy, Scores and Standings page. – When you click on the name only you get basically a blank page. Yes you have the two related links for each page as a drop down box but to make navigation smoother for users take two seconds to add both links to your main Trivia page, your main Fantasy page, main scores page and main Standings page.
    You can then ad sub links (and sub drop boxes in the future) for past years as you continue to grow.
    Once thing that really annoys me is clicking on a page and having it basically blank when it takes only a minute to add something along with PHOTOS.
    Slap the photos all over on these currently blank pages and I think the site would look more attractive.

    In my humble opinion.

    Now your banner link!!! please oh please point me in the right direction for this great idea!! I dont know if it is something I can utilize but I love the idea!!

    Oct 22, 2010 - 01:45 AM

    Hey there,

    I would like to enter my website Buddy Web into your Featured Site Of The Week!!!!

    I think Buddy Web deserves to be the featured website of the week because we are commited to doing what we do and we are always looking for ways to improve our website. Buddy Web also supports other projects and sites as we believe it can benefit us and them. When entering CSS codes for the site I mostly get them from here as this website is a great database for webs.com CSS codes! The Buddy Web team are commited to keeping the online community strong and happy. My template is very clean and all the content is arranged in a tidy way.

    I hope I have convinced you to enjoy my website

    Hi, my website focuses on cricket. I reckon it has the potentail which is needed to be an example site on Webs.

    Here is my site http://cricketheroes.webs.com/ – it has everything in it a cricket lover would want, and it contains key elements which will be suitable for a example site, therefore I would like to see my site as an example site here.
    It will be a great honour.

    Nice site, even though I’m not into sports. Love the layout <3

    I would like to enter my site Dance and Devour to be on Example Site Wednesdays. I believe my site should be chosen because my friends and I want to bring unique people together and join our community. We encourage people to submit their creative works and share them with the world. We also have blogs, photos, and writing from the four creators of the site: Raven, Claire, Seth and Ty. There is a forum for our members to discuss any topic they please.

    Our site may not look like much, but the more active members we get, the more we'll be able to do with the site. Eventually, if our site becomes popular, we'll be able to purchase a domain name and premium services, as well as paid advertising. Right now, we have no budget.

    Thank you for your time,
    Dance and Devour
