HIGH INTEREST AUTHORITY WEBSITE!
The site is fully functional, click pic to view!
Sadly terrorism nowadays is all over the news and a website about terrorism is obviously a very serious and emotionally charged subject (and undoubtedly controversial; for example many groups – like Hamas – are considered terrorist organizations in one country and not terrorists in another). As you know, we have websites for sale about debatable subjects such as cannabis, LGBT, sex toys, gambling, smoking, making money, health, politics etc. but as always, with delicate topics we never want to exploit the subject but rather make beautiful and above all, interesting websites, meant to be read. If the site gets traffic and makes a profit from giving visitors interesting stories that’s good for you and the community.
Having said that, it is obvious that the site presented here is an aggregator with plenty of room for changes depending on your own interest about current ‘terrorism’ events and news. Without a doubt the site has the potential to become a real authority site about terrorism also because there are no aggregators on the Net specific to this topic.
With this particular website, which being in blog style seems deceptively ‘simple’, the complexity is more related to the ‘content’ section rather than layout or functionality. In fact making this website has required a lot of work (and research), especially the syndication part (don’t forget that the site is an automation, a robot, but clicking on the various menu entries shows that all content is perfectly related, for the first time we’ve also used keywords in the various rss campaigns).
We have divided the site in two big sections, one from the top menu is about terrorist organizations (more can be added, Palestine only has a dozen organized groups for example), the other on the secondary menu is about countries and subdivided into ‘Western’ and ‘hot’ Middle-East/Rest of the world countries (again more could be added such as Lebanon etc.). This is WordPress so it’s easy to make changes: you could also for example add your own insights, content curation, add a forum or Q&A, and much more (like more categories such as homeland security, cyber/bio/eco/counter terrorism, US military etc. etc.). Or, leave it as it is and just promote it. Rest assured that the site will show all the most important news about terrorism, because we’ve used many reliable sources (and more can obviously be added).
Articles can be shown in different ways: you can show headlines + excerpts, or full content, open the stories on site or at the syndicated website. Right now stories open on site showing excerpts rather than full stories. All these settings and others – such as changing the top banner – take one click and are very well explained in the instructions.
The site has also plenty of advertisement, an extremely nice never used before news ticker at the top, the usual contact and privacy pages and social icons, fully mobile responsive and the latest HTML5 code. Visitors, Google and yourself will love this website.
