Term Project – Competitive Analysis

What are the criteria you will use to analyze each competitive site?

  • I will look at fonts, colors, picture use and how they blocked their text

What type of site is YOUR site? (genre)

  • Mine is a Media site

Who is YOUR audience?

  • Other Seattle to Portland Riders, bicyclists, athletes, bloggers and Seattle area bicyclists

How do you know if the site is “successful?” — (donations, sign-ups, sales, etc)

  • I will know my site is successful when there are more views on my videos and posts. Once there is duologue starting on my page I will know it is a success.

What are the design criteria? (is your site bold, soft, bright, plain – etc)

  • My site is bright and bold. I tried to use as many variations in my text so that it wasn’t boring looking. I want people to be drawn to read all that I put up

Analyze three sites like yours

Org name, URL, home page screen shot

Analytical summary, including “do-s” and “don’t-s

1. The Bicyclist http://www.thebicyclist.tv/blog/

I do not like that there is no title at the top to tell me what it is I am looking at. I don’t like the lack of color, it is a little bleak. I also think that you shouldn’t have a blog if you aren’t updating your posts often. I do like the solid black background color choice. This helps me focus on the actual text. The content of this site is awesome. The writer picked great information to place on his blog.

2. Kent’s Bike Blog http://kentsbike.blogspot.com/

  • I love almost everything about this site. I love that he takes a lot of pictures on his rides. His posts are organized and easy to follow. I think the only thing he could change would be to add more color to both his fonts as well as his background.

3. Velotopia http://www.velotopia.org/

  • I really how this blogger has advertisements for places in the area for biking. I love the graphics and use of color and font styles. This keeps my attention as I look through his site. I honestly don’t think there is much wrong with this site at all
