Hey everyone, I'm currently working on a site, bitcoin-tutorials.com, that has tutorials for everything cryptocurrency (and I mean everything Smiley). It's just getting off it's feet, and it only has about 20 tutorials right now, so we're obviously missing a ton of stuff. I want it to be the go-to site when you have a question about cryptocurrency or to refer newbies to for help. So, a few things:

  • What features need to be added?
  • What tutorials are missing?
  • Other than adding more tutorials, what's the next step to improve the site? Get the word out about it? Improve the design?

Please ignore the big banner advertisement at the bottom, I'm working on it Smiley The site will generate money through non-intrusive advertisements and donations, to pay for the domain/server and to pay authors to write tutorials.

Thanks!

Try adding some colors to site. The layout seems quite basic, and there is heavy scope for development.

I suggest you to use smaller ads or whole site will look like a parked domain.

How's that light blue background? I modified some colors.

That turquoise color is a bit harsh on the eyes I must admit. Maybe go for a softer shade?

The site does not seem user friendly. I can't find tutorials.

Colors are annoying too.

There's a tab at the top that says 'Tutorials'. What would you suggest I do to make this more clear, or should I put the tutorials in another place?

What would you suggest for the colors?

Without sounding too harsh, in all honesty if you want to be the number one website you really need to up the game.  Your website needs to look professional so people can trust your tutorials.

Okay here's a few things that might help:

1. Those pink ad banners need to go

2.Perhaps look at a color scheme, instead of going for only 1 color. A gradient is always nice. Look at this forum for example, you have a nice soft blue gradient, with a darker blue to emphasize the buttons.

3. Maybe use a few borders, they should help guide the users eyes around the page.

4. I think the way you have listed the categories is a bit confusing. Maybe use a drop down list as a suggestion?


These are just suggestions, I don't know how well they will work but hopefully they will help.

NB. I still don't like that turquoise, it makes it look like a really old website from windows 3.1  Cheesy

How does the new theme look?

1. I've removed the top banner so now it's only the bottom, and it's no longer pink: it blends in with the background.

2. I'm looking into a custom color scheme.

3. Looking into borders.

4. I've actually been working on a dropdown list for a bit now and I need to look into implementing it into this new theme.

How does the new theme look?

Hello! Nice site.
I have a suggestion on Dogecoin faucet list. You didn't add freedoge.co.in and http://www.thebitcoinmaster.com/dogecoin/ is a bit bad one as it takes a lot of time. It would be bad for newbies unless they are patient. Anyway it is a nice list too. Smiley

Kindly,
      MZ

Okay that looks about 1000% better. Now we are making good progress.

I have to add the link onto this thread cos its a mission to copy and paste, and It will help with your SEO.

You need to set your landing page as the welcome page. At the moment it jumps straight into the bitcoin category of tutorials. Other than that, it looks great. Keep adding content and marketing and you will start building lots of traffic.

Alright guys Smiley I've made a couple updates, and I think it's ready for beta release. I know we still need a ton more tutorials, but I'd like to give access to these tutorials to the people who need 'em ASAP. What do you all think?

I think it is a great idea to help people get to into bitcoin.
- I think you should use the Ubuntu typeface, which is also used for the Bitcoin logo.
- Also bitcoin colors (oker, grey)
- The advertisement in the middle of the page should go to the left sidebar, it attracts too much attention, people have to read around the ad. Perhaps you should design a logo. I could help.
Hope this is usefull, good luck with filling your site with the tutorials!
