    Hi, the video of “How To Write An About Page that Tells your Visitors why they Should Listen” just not work.
    Would you fix it?

    • Hesham Zebida September 7, 2014, 6:24 pm

      Unfortunately, this video isn’t available!

        That’s a pity. Still thank you.
        It’s a very nice topic.

    Honestly, I never really cared a lot about “About Me” pages. After reading your blog post and watching your video, I think this was a big mistake. So, it’s time for me now to spend some time on my “About Me” page.

    Howdy! I’m at work surfing around your blog from my new iphone 4! Just wanted to say I love reading through your blog and look forward to all your posts! Keep up the fantastic work!..

    Thanks

    I totally agree, every site, blog or company site should have an About page. Visitors want to know more about you/your company, so instead of making them dig around your site or Google it’s good to have a visible link to the About page. It does vary what a person puts on the page but as long as it’s concise and flows with the rest of the site it should be good to go.

    Does people actually click on your about-page often? I guess the people who are really interested in your site will. Should update my about page. I must say: It’s not very informative! Thank you for this kind reminder.

    This is perfect timing for me – I’m starting me own business website and I’m stressing over design and content. This will help! Thank you!

    I think it’s the time to edit our about page as well!

    By the way, I would like to hear some feedback about it Andrew!

    • Andrew April 8, 2010, 5:01 am

      Perhaps a bit more about you and your background, Hesham. Build up your credibility.

    Oops, I meant a couple-few on the about page is fine but don’t over-do it.

    Linkage is why I’m considering a navigational static home page. A couple-few on the home page is fine, but don’t over-do it.

    Thanks for the info, Andrew

    I like most of your examples here – although some of seem a little boring, but that comes down to personal style.
    They’re all well structured and have tons, and I mean tons of links.

    I really need to link it up ! (I haven’t got a single link on my about page, Heck !)
    Every day I’m thinking about improving my page, as I want it to kick ass as much as possible ! I’m getting there, I’m getting there….
    thanx !

      About pages are very much down to personal taste but you do want a few links…even if it’s to your contact page or fav blog post.
