Optimized!: Optimized!
Optimizing our pages was the name of the game this week. Google likes smaller pages, ours weren't tiny, so we worked to reduce their size without sacrificing content. In some instances, we reduced page size by 75% which should improve page relevancy and rank—at least that's how the theory goes. We also improved the appearance of both websites on tablets and phones.

The most significant change was to the home page's RADIO section. We replaced the bulky Mixcloud player with musician photos. You'll need to click the headline or the photo to access the player.

And the best news yet is we scrubbed our various mailing lists including Jazz Near You, so they're squeaky clean. Look for adjusted Jazz Near You sponsorship rates soon.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
