Having become obsessed like many others with 'Dominic', I thought I could do some lateral thinking to break the obsession for a while.
How for example would my site be considered if it existed in the real world as opposed to the internet and how would that knowledge benefit me in the development of my site and its content? Not just to get a higher position on Google but to actually give something of value to the surfers out there.
Is my site like the typical cloned high street store pretty much all the same and just as easy to go into the first one that's seen to buy what's needed?
Is it like a traditional hardware store where the storekeeper not only sells me something but tells me how to use it etc?
Is it similar to a huge out of town hypermarket where you can't find what you want easily and can never find an assistant who knows what it is you want let alone where it can be found?
Is it like an up market department store where everything looks flashy but it's not within most people's budgets and the assistants make you very aware of that fact?
Is it like a successful museum with free admission, stunning displays and a shop where fascinating items can be purchased?
Is it like a back street antique shop, dark and dingy but interesting to look around and with a possible bargain in every corner?
Is it like a small corner shop where the range is limited but all the esentials are to hand and there's always time to chat with the shopkeeper?
What would it be like to enter a store where an item is advertised in the window only to find the item isn't actually stocked but they try to sell you something else instead (probably a type of reconstituted meat)? How would that store fit into the real world analogy?
How would you describe your site(s) or how would you describe the worst of the sites out there using the same real world analogy?
At the least it might take your minds off Dominic for a while.
