Bitcoinnewsroom.com wanted us to implement an auto news website where the main job is to pull all the news regarding bit coin from various sources. Those sources can be managed from the central location of the site from the backend. With some solid local competition, they wanted to get a competitive edge by using their website to drive likely local and global clientele to call them to discuss their requirements, email them by filling up the form , attract various advertisers to put ads on their website and etc. ,ultimately bring in their vehicle for service.
So it was a challenging task for us to design a website for a company who is a creative and innovative leader in the same field.
We analyse their business and recommended the following:
We give them 3-4 web design layouts, from those one of the web designs they selected is the one in which the web site is based at. On that web page design we created web design of sub pages of the website using latest HTML5 and CSS3 technologies and implemented other features like Advertisement section, Submit a bit coin news section and other sponsors and partners section. We also used optimized images, which have smaller file sizes and faster load times.
Using the latest HTML5 and CSS3 Technology we have written their mark up such that our mark-up is clean and very semantic. We implemented modules or functions that our client’s website will pull all of the feeds regarding bitcoinnews and show them in a homepage. Feeds are shown in such a way that it includes images for that feed plus heading some brief description plus a read more link which points to that original site. When the news feed is pulled from the various sources it automatically created tags for that particular news item, so it becomes easy for our front end user to see the news articles regarding that particular tag or category. We also made sure that very feed which is pulled and displayed in home page should have social sharing icons such that our news articles can easily share across various social networks to increase traffic for the website. We also implemented search functionality and what’s so great about search functionality is that it searches from the feeds that we have pulled from other sources and displays the search result in a nice display options. We also implemented various widgets or small PHP snippets along with feeds to make our front end user engage to our site, widgets like Crypto Convertor and etc. We also implemented archive section various the user of our site can read previous news regarding bitcoin. We also implemented sponsors and partners section which shows in the sidebar of our homepage and easily manageable from the backend. We have provided special functionality for the admins from the backend such that admin can paste the RSS URL feed in the backend from which he wants to pull the feeds in their homepage and implemented cron such that it automatically checks the feed in those url every one hour if it finds a news item so it pulls that and displays it at our homepage. We also implemented newsletter subscription system where our frontend user can get bitcoinnews directly in their email addresses. We have strongly emphasized to attract advertiser to put advertisement in our website for that we have created a highly secured form. Once the advertiser puts an advertisement with all the details of new advertisement goes to the admin and admin can further take action on the advertisement weather to contact them, approve or disable them. Just like advertisement we have also implemented Submit a News for bit coin section. If any interested user of our site wants to contribute something to our website he or she can easily do that. We provided them a news letter submit form which is again highly secured . Once the user submits the form the admin can easily moderate the new news of bit coin and decides weather to approve or disable that news submitted by our front end user. We have again made sure that our contact form is highly secured and spam bot free.
To achieve all of this functionality we have a highly customized WordPress to bend to our the clients requirement.
