Excuse us for our lapse in bringing you an example site last week. Everybody here at Webs was caught up in our redesign, and we hope you have been playing around with some of our new features as well! Our snazzy new blog page is now the perfect place to showcase your websites!
Without further ado, here is today’s example site:
This week, we take a look at Roborovski Hamsters, a website dedicated to providing information and tips for taking care of Roborovski Hamsters, the smallest and fastest hamsters around.
Roborovski Hamsters does a great job of making a simple website with TONS of useful information. One of the greatest aspects of this site is their wildly popular forums. They have a bunch of different categories and very active members where people can discuss their hamsters. Roborovski Hamsters also uses these great features:
- Pictures and Videos that any member can contribute to. This is a great way to strengthen and grow the community on your site.
- FAQs to answer frequent questions and not clog up your forums with recurring topics
- Guestbook to let visitors leave a note or ask a quick question
One of the reasons that Roborovski Hamsters is so successful is because they followed the number one rule of a successful site: finding a need and addressing it.
They found a topic that hadn’t been covered yet on the internet and did a great job of providing the answer to that need. Although the niche of their visitors was small, they did a great job providing for the needs of the niche and ended up making themselves the go-to place. It is always easier to start off small and grow bigger than to try to compete with huge sites with strong followings.
As the year comes to a close, we would like to thank all of our blog readers for their support in making Example Site Wednesday’s so big. It’s awesome to see what everybody is doing with our site builder and the amount to effort people have put into their sites. Picking out a site every week is becoming harder and harder as there are just so many sites that deserve the spotlight.
With that being said, if you want your site to be an example site, make sure to keep on commenting so you don’t get lost in the mountain of awesome websites we check out!
That’s it for today, we hope you enjoyed today’s post. From everyone here at Webs, Have a Great New Year!
