5 thoughts on “Listnerd – Create, Share and Explore Interesting, Interactive Lists

  1. As I looked around the home page, I thought it was a simple design, but elegant.  The colors are attractive and I really liked seeing the trending lists so I knew right away what others were searching for.  The search option is easy to find and so is the sign up/login link.
    I decided to search for a list of the best beers and found 5 lists that made me thirsty.  Everything was straight forward and I might do some more searching and reading.
    I’m not sure if I will create an account just yet, but I am tempted to.  I think my spouse might enjoy an account more than I would.
    I searched for list making sights on Bing and was taken to  This sight did not impress me.  Compared to Listnerd, it is boring and very unattractive.  Listnerd would definitely be my site of choice.
    I think that Listnerd has a great concept.  I often find myself looking at top 10 or 20 lists on other sites, but to find many of these lists on one site is great.  I will probably go back for more, and may create an account and possibly my own lists.


  2. 1) Look around the home page – what is your initial impression of what you see?
    From first glance the intention of this site is clear and indicates that I will be able to create lists of things that are relevant to me and that I might want to share with others. I’m not sure of the relevance of the background image however I see the information boxes at the top of the page immediately and the top menu indicates that I can search the site as well as join up and create an account. As I scroll down the page I like the clarity of the information boxes which show me further examples of some of the people who are using listnerd. I’m also interested to see the categories at the end of the page as well as the ability to search the site from here which saves me from having to scroll back to the top of the page. I also like to see the RSS feed buttons on the right hand side which indicates I can keep track of new and popular lists created. 
    2) Think of something you want to find on this website. Now try to find it. Did you find what you were looking for? Was anything confusing?
    I decided to click on the Discover button to see what it would bring up. This took me to a very visually attractive page that showed me different categories that I can click on to see lists. I clicked on one of the lists to see what it would look like and this took me to a new page that provides a nice clear and uncluttered view of someone’s prepared list.
    3) Are you encouraged to (create a new account, subscribe, sign up for a free trial, etc.)? Can you tell us why (or why not)?
    Yes I like the idea of sharing lists of things and it’s an interesting quick way to share information. I decided to create an account and was pleased to see the option to create a non-social account. The account creation form was very easy to complete and the large print made it nice and easy to read. I noticed when I went back to the home page that the background image had changed to something else which was fun.
    4) Go to search engine of your choice and find one other company that offers a similar service. Compare the two companies. Which on do you prefer? Why?
    I took a look at by way of a comparison. On my initial viewing I prefer your site as it doesn’t have advertising emblazoned at the top of the screen. Also your menu options are clearer. I did like the listverse lists displayed in the centre of the homepage although when I clicked on your option to display all lists this provided a really nice visual version of the lists which was great. I did add numbers of lists to each of their categories. Overall however I prefer your site and its colour scheme, clarity and general visual appeal and ease of use.

  3. 1. My first impression is that this is a site that will enable me to create and share lists. Your tagline and intro text make that very clear from the get-go. However, I’m not sure what the home page image, as eye-catching as it is, really has to do with lists. As I scroll down, I get the sense that this site has a strong social networking focus since it displays most popular members, most active members, etc. on the home page.
    2. I figured I’d look for some lists! I found the “Discover lists” tab easily in the upper right corner. From there, I clicked on “Music” and searched on “indie” in the search bar. Yep, there were several lists of indie bands, indie songs, etc.! However, when I clicked the lists, not all of them were populated yet, which I found odd. If someone is going to create a list, I don’t think they should be able to leave it blank. I think there should be some form of quality control so that users have to add at least ten items or something like that. Also strangely, the lists I looked at had gotten a lot of views but no votes yet. Perhaps the deterrent is that people have to log in to vote. Anyway, yes, I found what I was looking for, and I guess the only confusing aspect was the blank lists.
    3. Not really. I can imagine it might be an amusing pastime for certain segments (like kids and college students) to create and vote on lists, but I don’t really have time for that sort of thing as a working adult.
    4. “Make lists” and “create lists” didn’t return anything like your site in Google. However, I remember a site that was quite similar to yours. It was called RateItAll, and I used to be a member there about five years ago. The idea was to create your own lists or help other people create theirs by voting their items up or down and adding some of your own. Duplicate lists were not allowed in the public space, just for private use. The problem was that the site didn’t do very well, and that was in spite of the fact that they promised every user a percentage of the ad revenue generated by their individual lists. Ultimately, I think there just weren’t enough people interested in sitting around creating and voting on lists, and I wonder how you intend to address that issue for your own site. Today, RateItAll still exists, but it’s turned into more of a product review site. Their home page lists product categories across the top and follows that by a stream of most recent reviews. I somewhat prefer their set-up to yours because the categories are more accessible (i.e., right on the home page instead of on another page accessible through a tab in the navbar). Also, there are no images that don’t seem to have a purpose on their home page. But those are fairly minor points.
    5. I can’t think of much else to say. I think I’ve addressed my concerns above. I hope that they’re wrong and that your site will prove to be popular. However, I think that you may eventually need to consider how to get users excited about creating and voting on lists through other incentives. I’m not sure what those incentives might be, but it may be worth thinking about contests and the like or some unique angle to the lists. For instance, maybe you could work out some deals to offer, say, a free L’Oreal product to anyone who creates a list of top L’Oreal products and generates at least 500 votes. Or maybe top list creators could earn points redeemable toward a Kindle or something like that. Good luck!

  4. 1) Look around the home page – what is your initial impression of what you see?

    My first impression about the site is that very clean and very well organized (you made a good job on this part) the theme of the site is also really great it’s for the eyes and good contrast as well. You also choose a very good image. keep up 
    2) Think of something you want to find on this website. Now try to find it. Did you find what you were looking for? Was anything confusing?
    First thing I tried to look for is the part where I can register and yeah I found it really easily, very clean navigation and very user friendly also. I have a suggestion what if you do A/B testing on which would be better , putting the log in / register in one menu or by separating them.
    3) Are you encouraged to (create a new account, subscribe, sign up for a free trial, etc.)? Can you tell us why (or why not)?

    Yes, I really do. I’ll be creating an account after this. 🙂 it’s very nice website, it really pushing me to join and explore everything about the site.Putting members in the homepage is a great Idea. knowing there are already a lot of people who joined the site really encourages me to join too. 
    4) Go to search engine of your choice and find one other company that offers a similar service. Compare the two companies. Which on do you prefer? Why?

    I found this site in search engine and I checked both your site and this site.I prefer yours in terms of placing things and cleanliness of the site  and as first timer to see this websites, I still prefer to create an account in your site because there’s something in your site that making me feel that I want to know about this.And that’s the first impression your site given to me. You really made a great job buddy. just continue doing it.
    5) Please share any additional feedback/comments you may have.

     You check site like and this one so you can check their strength  and weaknesses and you can apply those good things in your site and eliminate the bad things. So far, I really love your site .and you made sign up 😉

  5. 1.) The homepage is very simple yet its attractive. It’s fits the design qoute “Less is more”. The website explains whats its purpose. 

    2.) I wan’t to find what is how list looks like. And finally I found it. Its very obvious below the landing page. I clicked the “top-10-weirdest-religions”  and it coincide for what I expected to see. Its confusing but I want to see leaders name in every thumbs.

    3.) I even create account just to explore the site. On the first place its attractive.

    4.)  I used your domain name(“list nerd”) to my keyword search to find the company which has a similar service. I compare your site to and I not really convince to there service since their landing page is looks old,not updated. I prefer your site because it gives me what I want to see like the popular lists and the new lists and etc which is easy for me to navigate on your site.

    5.)  I like the head navigation to be static on your page and the input box with the text always change to catch attention.  Overall like your website and the flow on how you present to the user. Give your users the best experience when they visit your website.
