As you’ve noticed I’ve been playing with the header image of the blog, this is because unfortunately we have a bounce rate of over 90% from search. That means that over 90% of the new folks that stumble across this blog after doing a search for something leave in under 30 seconds and never return. That is not good and it makes it very difficult to grow… 🙁
The first thing potential new readers notice is the header and most have been hitting the exit button as quickly as possible without reading a word of our great content or joining our community. And that folks is the reason that I’ve been working on the look and layout of the blog – to lower our “bounce rate”.
To be honest, I’ve never cared much for any of the headers that have topped this blog over the years, unfortunately, I’ve never been very good at designing, graphics or headers. I know this to be a fact because every time I’ve put up a new header image over the past couple of day, it only takes about 5 minutes for someone to tell me how much that they hate it…
If you’re good with graphics and web-design, then feel free to design a new header to top TheSurvivalistBlog.net and email it to me. If I get several different designs I’ll put them up in a contest of sorts and let readers choose.
Sorry, but I don’t have the resources (money) to pay for your designs but if you have a website or blog I would be happy to give you a bit of free advertising via a link back to your site and a thank you in a blog post…
