All Quiet on the Survey Front
After a month of having the reader surveys open for both my blogs, I have to say the amount of feedback was rather less than I hoped for. However, there was enough to indicate where the blogs are succeeding.
Looking at Pickled Wings question by question:
1: How well does Pickled Wings meet your needs?
The responses to this question all fell into the “Very well” and “Somewhat well” brackets with the majority in “Very well”
2: How easy was it to find what you were looking for on Pickled Wings?
Responses were spread across “Somewhat easy”, “Very easy” and “Extremely easy” with a majority in “Very easy”
3: Did it take you more or less time than you expected to find what you were looking for on Pickled Wings?
Responses ranged from “About waht I expected”, “A little less time” and “A lot less time”. While there was not a large majority, slightly less than half the respondents voted “A little less time” putting it a bit ahead of the other two.
4: How visually appealing is Pickled Wings?
By a wide margin, “Extremely appealing” got the majority here with “Very appealing” and “Somewaht appealing” taking smaller shares.
5: How easy is it to understand the information on Pickled Wings?
Happily, the responses here were split between only “Very easy” and “Extremely easy” wit h”Extremely easy” getting a majority.
6: How much do you trust the information on Pickled Wings?
Responses were split between “A moderate amount”, “A lot” and “A great deal”. There was a tie between “A lot” and “A great deal” with both cioming in at just under half with the rest going to “A moderate amount”.
7: How likely is it that you would recommend Pickled Wings to a friend or colleague?
Just over half of respondents said they would recommend Pickled Wings while smaller percentages were passive or said they would not recommend it.
8: Do you have any other comments about how we can improve our website?
Not much was said in this area, but here’s a couple of comments:
“I am partial to Soviet aircraft, so please add more articles about Tupolevs, Yaks, etc.”
I will do that as the opportunities present themselves. I prefer to use my own photos in posts, so that does limit what I can present to the aircraft I can gain access to. Also, Soviet aircraft do present a research obstacle in that a great deal of information about them is still tainted by biases of the Cold War era, so greater care must be taken in researching them.
I currently have articles on the Ilyushin Il-28, Yakovlev Yak-11 and Yakovlev Yak-40 in the works, so you can be assured of more Soviet aircraft articles in the coming year.
“None really. I Love reading the posts along with the wide range of photos. All very good!”
This is good to hear. 🙂
9: How did you learn about Pickled Wings?
Most respondents found the blog via the WordPress reader section or through an internet search.
A smaller number found it through following a link from another site.
While the results of the surveys certainly aren’t scientific, I’m happy to have them.
Thanks all who responded.
