I spent a hectic three days at the end of last week rebuilding my main website. The old one looked rather dated and was a bit of a nightmare to update. It didn’t perform particularly well SEO wise and was clunky and slow to load. I decided to abandon the use of html and css and transfer the new site to a streamlined wordpress format. I used what data I could from the old site and tried to emphasise my music in the new one, with it heavily drawing from my rather active Soundcloud account. In the new site, photos and videos are available, there is a portfolio section, lots of music, categorised by type (DJ Sets, production, remixes) and genre (house, chillout, drum & bass). I encourage website viewers to participate with me on the social networks, with lots of twitter and facebook boxes and share buttons and also links to the many social networks available. The blog section has allowed me to combine my previous wordpress news blog with my old google blogger one and I might even drag in all the tumblr posts I’ve done too. I plan to post new blogs primarily directly in the site so my other blogs (including this one) are likely to become a bit neglected. Fans of the new website can sign up for updates via email. All in all, I’m satisfied with the work and the new site is looking rather sparkly. I hope you take the time to check it out http://djwezg.com
I was thrilled to discover a new social website for DJs. topdeejays.com measures the ranking of DJs across the globe according to their fanbase on the internet. They formulate a score for each DJ according to his or her facebook, twitter, soundcloud, myspace, youtube and last.fm rankings. The charts can be broken down according to country, genre and individual social network. My new page there which shows my results is here. https://topdeejays.com/wez-g/ As you can see my current rankings are: Ranked 1155 in the World Ranked 268 in the UK Ranked 311 in House Ranked 60 in Chill Out Ranked 4938 Facebook Ranked 197 Twitter Ranked 1540 Soundcloud Ranked 5045 Youtube Myspace rankings as yet unavailable Ranked 3187 Last.fm I was quite chuffed with my overall scores. I’ll probably be boosted up a few spaces when my myspace score is included. I need to work on a few areas, like building up my Facebook Fanpage and also my Youtube subscribers. I’m going to keep track of my progress on this site. I think it’s a really useful tool and it’s also a great way of discovering new music and finding out what’s truly going on in the scene.
