Every time I finish something on the website or update some type of structure I learn something new that requires me to basically go over the whole site and update it again. I feel like I keep getting closer to how a recipe website should look and be structured but I’m sure I am still a ways off. So far I have tried to improve my SEO, site speed, how to answer the questions people ask on google about my topics, and now I have just finished adding structured recipe data to all my cocktails. That took forever as I have 200ish cocktails, but I finally finished it and that should help folks find me on google and bing better. I can see how running a website is a full time job for people and I still need to improve the site structure some more. Oh and I didn’t know that I needed to make articles as post and not pages so I had to convert all my 200+ pages into post. That took some time.
So next I will be working on adding a big Tiki update to my app and website. I know my app lacks in tiki drinks right now because Tiki cocktails and culture is something I’m not the most familiar with. It doesn’t really fit the theme of my vintage cocktail app and site but I will put the effort in to add more recipes and do it well. I’ve been made aware that my garnishes are not the most obvious on the app or site either so I will update the apps to display garnishes in a similar way to an ingredient. those are the major changes but here is a full list of the stuff I plan to address or change.
- Add many more tiki cocktails.
- Make garnishes look similar to an ingredient in the recipe.
- Improve the mixing instructions a bit more too.
- Add an ad to the android version similar to the iPhone one.
- Add an in app purchase to the android version similar to the iPhone one.
- Add calories and a setting page to display calories if the user wants to the android version similar to the iPhone one.
Wish me luck! I’m willing to bet a total of 0 people will actually read this lol. I guess it’s just more for me to keep track of my plans and thoughts.
