With more and more people defaulting to their mobile devices to get online, RacingJunk.com wants to make sure your user experience is optimal so we’ve been collecting data, doing research and asking questions to develop a new mobile homepage that meets the needs of our users.
Here are a few changes to expect if you’re just viewing this page on your mobile for the first time, including new ways to access featured ads, see popular categories, direct links to news and tech articles, and the most recent classifieds.
One of our biggest requests was access to the most popular categories so that users could go directly to the set of listings they wanted to like drag racing, engine parts, etc. These appear at the top of the mobile home page.
This is followed by the most recent ads, so that users can see what’s new on the site right away.
We studied the data of which categories readers search for the most often, and created links to those searches:
Users who upgrade to a featured listing, and buyers looking for those featured ads, wanted more access to those, so featured listings shows up right on the home page.
Finally, we realized that it was tricky to get to our News & Tech section, so now those sections are front and center, giving you access to the latest in racing news, as well as tech and how-to sections to help with your automotive and tuning needs.
For those curious, here’s how the whole shebang will look!
