Yet not every site can achieve that. Case in point: When Gawker and fellow sites Gizmodo, Lifehacker and Jezebel released drastically revamped sites in February, they were universally panned by users. TechCrunch even published a post claiming the “big redesign is driving people away.”

Today, my email inbox, Facebook newsfeed and Twitter stream were filled with news of not one but three site relaunches: Muck Rack, YouTube, and the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press. Let’s take a closer look at these newly modified sites.
