Submitting your website to design blogs

22 Mar 2010

I mentioned in my last post that our new website slurpystudios.com has been listed in over 100 design reviews and blogs. Since then I've had several requests for a list of these design blogs so that other proud web designers can submit their sites for review.

Getting another site to mention your site is valuable in 4 ways:

  • People search design blogs for inspiration and will see your site, dramatically increasing your visibility
  • People will be able to comment and review your site, with the possibility of winning prizes and awards
  • Other sites linking to your site makes Google and other search engines think very highly of you and put you higher up the search rankings.
  • Submitting to a few of these design blogs can create a snowball effect; when other blog writers browse these sites for inspiration, they often repost your site on their own blog and increase your audience in that way. For example, we received hundreds of hits from the influential blog TemplateMonster '101 Awesome website portflios' although we didn't submit the site to them.

So here is a list of some of the sites which collect inspirational or beautifully designed websites that you can submit to:


Apologies if there are any duplicates - it is quite a long list! If there are any others that I haven't listed, please let me know and I'll update it to include them. I checked them all, but if any of them stop working for any reason, please let me know that too so we can make this a useful resource for everyone

Hi,

Nice blog post, i think you have refered many website for the process of web designing research. According to you , is it just the coding complexity that leads to a great website?
Some says that they consider only the user experience for the award winning websites designswithout much involved in the coding, i would like to know your views on this..

Thanks.
