Summary: Nino is a girl who harbors feelings towards her friend, Momo. Just when she can no longer suppress her feelings, she encounters a boy who composes music…,” and “What is the promise Nino made to a boy she met who composes music?”–Manga Updates

Hey everyone long time no see/here/speak.  New manga reviews on the way just in the process of updating the website.

New Layout

I’ve updated to a new layout that works a bit better for my content. The old one no longer supported updated summary text which was a bummer. The new one has a cool Instagram widget so you can follow YourGimmick on Instagram for nice shoujo manga related pics. I have also cleaned up the right bar and added search by popular tages. Another fun feature: featured catagories on the top. Unrequited Love is my most searched keyword right now so check it out!

New URL

So when I originally ported the website over to WordPress I had no idea about SEO practices or even the real technical knowledge to change the domain so since I moved to wordpress the url has been “www.yourgimmick.net/wordpress“. It’s ugly and drove me crazy but I didn’t have the technical knowledge to know how to change it properly.

Now, fortunately, I do have all of the knowledge and have removed the /wordpress/ directory from the URL. The new url is just a sleek “www.yourgimmick.net”

I also have added an ssl certificate which means the website is https instead of http for any other seo nerds out there!

Site Cleanup – Broken Links

For a heavy information site there are SOOOO many outlinks and unfortunately the online manga communtiy is fickle. To be honest I don’t even know of any readers at the moment except for Manga Fox which is unfortunate because they suck. I will do my best to continue to clean up links to make sure everything is working one review at a time!
