Putting together a good academic website?




In our September “how can we help you?” thread, a Grad student writes:

Do people have any thoughts/tips about putting together an academic website? I take it that it’s a consensus good thing, but are there platforms/kinds of content/organization tips that people would recommend?

Good question! I discussed websites briefly in this post in our Job Market Boot Camp a few years back, but I’m not sure how good or helpful that advice was. I did my best with my own website just by looking around at other people’s as examples–but I’ve seen websites that are far better than my own.

Anyway, what do you all think? What should a good website look like? Links to ones that you think are particularly good would be helpful, I think–and do feel free to self-nominate by linking to your site, if you think it would be helpful!
