As you’ve probably already noticed by now, PPC Without Pity just got a bit of a facelift over the weekend. I’ve been plugging away with the same old theme since 2008, so I thought it was time for a change. Changes include some aesthetic tweaks, readability and usability improvements, and more ways to connect with me via social media and share blog content through social channels.
First off, I’d like to direct your attention to the RSS feed icon and social sharing buttons at the top right. If you’re not keen on the whole “reading content with formatting” thing, you can follow my RSS feed at http://feeds.feedburner.com/PpcWithoutPity.
I’d also like to note the social sharing buttons below the RSS feed icon. If you enjoy this blog, please like, +1 and tweet it!. Help me spread the word and connect with other search engine marketing professionals around the world.
I also uncluttered the sidebars for greater readability, removing some outdated content. You can still find a category list of blog topics on the right. I condensed my headshot and some social media icons to take up less visual space. You’re here for the content, not to see my giant mug staring back at you.
As you well know, I am a usability geek, so I still consider this redesign a work in progress. Expect a few more tweaks coming in the following weeks. I’m also interested to know what you all think. I don’t blog for a company or to find my own freelance gigs – I’m writing to educate and discuss paid search with the best in the field (that’s you). If you notice anything off, or have any requests that would make your blog experience more outstanding, just leave me a note in the comments below.
