Ladunliadinews.com is a neat blend of a news portal and
blog. The layout of the site is similar to most blogs,
but the content on the site is not a personal account of
one's life, and also you are not getting any beauty tips
or how-to articles. The web design is simple; in fact,
it's a bit too simple, which works to the detriment of
the site, to some extent.
The Ladun Liadi news blog doesn't have a proper menu,
both at the header and footer. A website without a
header menu is like a body without a head. Moreover, the
site also doesn't have a proper logo of any kind. It's
just plain text located in the top-centre of the site
that not just looks amateurish but also works against
the overall branding of the site. The lack of a header
menu is not just losing points on the aesthetic front
but it's also letting the site down a bit in terms of
functionality. In other words, it's hard to find out
articles that belong to a specific topic or category.
There is the rather inconspicuous search button on the
left that makes things a bit easier, but it still does
not completely make up for the lack of a proper menu
bar. By the way, the site publishes news content and
also a lot of exclusive content, along with some
spiritual and religious write-ups.
Though there's no traditional Contact Us page, you can
still get in touch with the author or the webmaster.
There is contact details put out on the left sidebar of
the site, which includes a couple of email addresses and
a phone number. For general queries and business talks,
you can put in an email. The number, on the other hand,
is strictly for advertising enquiries.
Now coming back to the primary offering of Ladun Liadi
news, which is its content. The site is inundated with
content. This is not just because the blog has been
around for quite some time but also because there's very
little time gap between posts. In fact, a new post comes
up on the site literally in a matter of minutes. This
busy posting schedule has not just kept users constantly
glued to the blog but it has also helped the blog
significantly in terms of its positioning in the search
results and the resulting popularity.
As far as web design is concerned, there's quite a lot
of work to be done. As aforementioned, a proper header
menu would bode well for the site. Also, some design
alterations would make the site look a bit more
professional than what it looks now.
