Hey all,

My site is all about digital marketing and students, it is not a pro site for an expert to learn things, just a place for anyone with a passing interest in digital marketing/social media to see if this is a topic they want to learn more about. I think im getting good views but my bounce rate is high, most visitors see one or two articles and bounce. I think my theme is bad too, any FREE suggestions for a good theme?

Here is the link

Thanks for any suggestions guys, have a great day! :ertery:

Hey,
I would suggest you to search for better theme and set it up.There a lot free themes for wordpress around.
Also i think that you should put more plugins which are going to increase the interaction with the website. And please split your footer, if you do you will gain far better look.

This is meant to be constructive...

Sorry to say, I would bounce too. Don't mean to be rude, it's just so boring and kind of dreary looking. Kind of depressing. For sure you need some images. For starters maybe a nice logo? Then some images on your posts.

This might be personal opinion, but I think the best are blogs with a front page that shows excepts of posts, like 100 characters with an image. So readers can scan a bunch of content and pick what they want to read. I think it's better than making readers/visitors go through a whole post to get to the next, and the next. If they din't like the first post, they will probably leave. Guess it's like giving them a easy way to choose. And frankly it should make your blog look like it has more content.

I hit the content and it's just big block for boring text. My mind is thinking, this is going to be "work". But maybe it's suppose to be that way, being academic? I might be off base? Just don't like reading content like that myself.

There are plenty of way to dress up your content besides just images (though they can be a great help). For example, I use a plugin called Intense, which gives me a ton of shortcode that will dress up my content. Like cool quote's, box, text formatting, ect. Plenty of plugins like that out there.

As for a good theme, sorry, that's like asking what car should I buy? No idea. At the very least you could start with the theme's Wordpress puts out. Ones that come default with wordpress. Not the best, but not the worst. There are just so many theme's out there. Or go to wordpress.org and start going through the free theme's until you find one that you like, that will fit you needs.

Does this help? Again, don't mean to be negative.

Hi there tdadkins, as you're using WP I would also say, definitely you need a different theme. Something much better looking. The current colours don't seem to compliment each other. There appears to be too much grey color and your posts don't appear to have any images. You could really brighten things up by adding some images into your posts. Images speak a thousand words.

Also (and this one is just my pedanticness coming through) I think you should always make your Post Titles to be Captalized as that will give them more appeal. You're on the right track though so good luck! :)
