    Hi,

    Please review my website:

    Please review my website: MusicStreaming.com

    The site has been redone, now it is mainly a blog. I could not find a good way to offer my own music streaming so now it will be more of a blog, with other services like concert tickets and so on. Once it gets bigger I hope to get banner ads from music streaming companies.

    Thanks!

    I'm sorry to say it but this is a quality domain name and deserves better. The blog doesn't look appealing I'm afraid, the design looks more spam than anything and I'm afraid that alone is enough to put me off. Very archaic looking in my opinion and the content doesn't flow well.

    Back to the drawing board I'm afraid.

    Thank you for the review. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the blog, or go to a new site entirely? I could not find a good way to offer actual music. So not sure the best way to go on this one.

    I don't know enough about this niche to warrant a valid opinion about any business venture I'm afraid, my review was merely on the blog itself.

    I wish you good luck though!

    Please don't get offended by my small review:
    Black themes on site are not welcomed by people in the music niche or people who like music. Maybe if the blog was only about Rock'n'Roll, maybe it will work.

    If the website was mine, I'd apply a theme or hire a designer to it. Bright colors work.

    Maybe bright orange/lime/blue with black and white background could do the job.

    In terms of monetization, try selling CD's/Vinyls/T-shirts/Accessories. Amazon is a good start, apply for the Associated Amazon account, and start A/B testing - I say this because I assume you already have traffic.

    In regards of traffic, I had seen massive drops in terms of traffic on my own sites after a redesign, don't really know why, but be careful.

    I would go with a clean looking theme, ditch the black theme and above the fold provide options where people can go to get streaming music. If you can't provide streaming music, be the resource where people can find it. Make it easy for the user to find what they are looking for. Make it something a person would bookmark and come back to.

    Please don't take offense, I can see you have put a lot of time into the site, but it does not make sense as a blog to me. I would make it a resource. If I visit the site as a user, I would want to see clear options for listening to music right now.

    The adsense ad that I see, has it right, buttons to listen to music. That is how the site should be imho.

    please change the theme. black only works for porn and metal. The brighter the better.
    When I visit that domain I`d expect a list of available streaming services. maby a short review and listed prices.
    The domain name is great I think.

    Add a newsletter signup box to build an email list and regularly send new offers. Email marketers would say: "the money is in the list" ;)

    domain name is great, website is really not up to. Give it a modern look (hire a designer).
    Regarding the content I really do not think a blog is appropriate. You should offer a service here. Can t advice on it as I am not competent on the niche too.

    Hi Coffeeman,

    It's a great domain. I agree with the other reviews. A clean, modern theme with black on white would be easier to read.

    I'm using the Enfold theme on a few sites at the moment. It's very veratile, check out a demo by searching google for "enfold restaurant one-page". It can be bought at themeforest just google "themeforest enfold"

    (Sorry, I would have added links but my account here is new so I'm not allowed to post links yet. I'm making a few posts to get that restriction removed)

    Your website load time is quite good. If you google "pingdom website speed test" put in your website address to that you'll get a guide to increase the load time under Page Speed Performance.

    I don't like the redirect from your domain root to the blog on a sub domain. I would install Wordpress under the root domain and then have musicstreaming dot com slash blog as the blog address. You will need to do a 301 permanent redirect from all the old urls to the new ones. The Yoast SEO plugin for Wordpress make this easy to do. Once linked up to your Google Analytics account it will report 404's (Page not found) etc in the Wordpress Admin.

    If I was going to the bother of doing the redirect I would also change the whole site over to https. A free account from Cloudflare would do this for you or you could get a free ssl certificate from start ssl dot com.

    lets encrypt dot org should be launching later this year who will also be providing free ssl certs.

    I did some quick keyword research around your domain. Please find it below. I use this type of research as a rough guide when looking for content / page ideas for my site.

    Good luck with your site.

    Best wishes,
    Adrian.
