Our new look: A user experience revolution and a stronger content focus

13 Sep 2018

Noticed something different?

We’ve given our sites a facelift, bringing them in line with modern design principles and optimising for a mobile-first era, which now represents roughly 57% of our traffic.

The new look presents a streamlined experience for our readers no matter what device or platform you’re visiting us on.

The changes represent a significant step as we continue to innovate to bring you a better experience: focusing on fewer ads, clearer signalling of our whitepapers, and guaranteed advertising results.

We’re doing this so that it’s easier for you to find the specialist content you come here for: news about the technology and trends that affect you and your organisation.

Reducing the number of ads will make for a more engaging and less intrusive experience for our readers while giving individual advertisements more prominence. 

Our new exclusive whitepaper section lets readers looking for thought-provoking industry expertise access them at the click of a button instead of looking for them among our stories. 

We’re excited about how this new look reflects what we believe in delivering.

We want to hear any feedback you have on it – both positive and negative.

Please drop us a line here to share what you think, and if you wanted to hear more about our revamp, you can reach out to us here for all the juicy details.

Techday publisher Sean Mitchell says, “After 13 years in the business, it’s time for a radical overhaul.

"We’re introducing very clever new offerings for readers and advertisers alike, including designing our sites for mobile phone visitors first, a new downloads section with a selection of relevant white papers and a radical new approach for advertisers where we only charge for results.”

This is the largest site overhaul both on the backend and the front since we went online-only four years ago, and we can’t wait to see if you love it as much as we do.
