Band website love: The Archers

Every week, we highlight one of our favorite websites on Bandzoogle.

Who: The Archers
What: Whimsical folk-pop
Where: Victoria, BC
Why their website rocks: There are a few things you can learn from The Archers’ website. It’s a good example of a website that uses the custom style editor's preloaded library assets to create a unique website design. Choosing a page background and adding a content area colour with the opacity filter is simple, but effective. On the homepage, they add a welcome message that links to their Bio page (read more...). Adding an excerpt from the bio with a “read more” link is great for search engine optimization; using internal links helps Google webcrawlers index your pages more easily, and also tells search engines which pages you feel are important enough to link to from your most visited page, home!

The site is indeed nice. If I may suggest something (and dont take it personal because my site sucks in comparison to yours) but I think that that lightened design in the background should be less lit. For me its a little hard to read when the writing is over the lightened section. So the only time I can read it easily is if the paragraph is in the lower section of the page. Other than that I really like their page. Its clean!

Currently it's black on a dark background image which makes it not easy to read. The background image should be lightened IMO.
