    The site is too bright. The logo at the top is weird and annoying to the eye. It looks like a blogger site with a TON of fake comments. And also there are about 50 things for sale on one page. They eye gets dragged all over the page.

      comments are real. the only thing..i dont know why its doubled. Some kind of glitch maybe.

      I do have bunch of ads..i guess it be good to cut it down a bit

      Thank you very much LondonPaladin

    You should offer a free report to build up a subscribers list and offer one product on your site.

    Ya I agree with RPW, work on your opt-in and making your readers want to subscribe. That should help you build up a potential list.

    Dude, im going to be blunt with you because you need to hear it, so don't take offense.

    Your site is very much below average and you will not see any profits from it. It looks exactly the same as a poorly maintained splog (spam blog, autoblog).

    The first problem i notice when your site loads is the large amount of banner ads that display books and affiliate products. Believe me, banners do not convert and their presents on your site would actually cost you money due to potential customers leaving beacuse they don't find your site at all appealing.

    Society have developed a natural blindness for banner ads over the years because of the huge amounts of dishonest banner ads that where only used to con the visitor to click. People got burnt by these banner ads to often and killed the banner ads effectiveness. If I was you, I would remove every last one of them. More definitely doesnt mean better when it comes to banner ads.

    Do you know what the most trusted form of website navigation is in 2010? Its the incontent text link. This type of navigation to an affiliate product of CPA offer has a click through rate of 40% - 60% on a lot of my content, where as a banner ad would be doing well to get 1% CTR from the same content.

    The CTR to the affiliate offers are much higher through incontent text links because people trust those links. Reputable sites like Wikipedia, which is based around, incontent text link navigation has built that trust.

    So instead of using the banners, you can use incontent text links to the same offers. Will get much higher CTR, website will be much easier on the eye so you conversion will be much higher.

    The site header is really bad and needs improving, your navigation links to your articles should appear alongside your article and not alongside the comments below. Way to many different size and color fonts on the page. The better your adsense ads can blend in and match your websites font style and color scheme, the higher your CTR and profit from them. The crutial mistake you made that are causing these problems, is the fact that you purchased a domain but are still using blogger for your CMS.

    Is your domain name hosted with blogger or do you have seperate webhosting? i cant remember how it all works. But if your serious about wanting to make money online, it will be well worth the time and money to get your own webhosting. Only about $5/month through hostgator.com.

    I presonally think that anybody not using wordpress that is running on your own domain and hosting, is insane. Wordpress in unbelievable with the speed of which you can install it on your new domain name and have an excellent looking website published within 5 minutes.

    If I have my way, I will never even consider making a static HTML site again. The plugins that are always being developed for wordpress makes the sky the limit when developing a site.

    Blogger blogs can easily be exported and then imported back into a wordpress CMS. You should do it if your serious, you will definitely thank me later.

      Holy smokes.
      Thank you so much.
      I will do changes. Feel free to come back to my site tommorow. You will find it different from what you seen. A lot of things that you said makes sense. I just don't know why i didnt realize that before!

      Thank you again!

      Cheers!

    Definitely have to agree with Bob in terms of text links vs banner ads. We've found with our product reviews that text links beat widgets or banner ads every time.

    its cool that you have a domain name which you don't see a lot of people who have blogger accounts with but the thing about you blog is its not eye catching it screams plain blog with lots of content you need colors and designs that will catch the eyes . Also cut the post in half with the read more code and if you have different categories put the in a page some where on your blog . thats all i can think of other than that you should be good p.s. people love picture it gives them a visual on things good luck

    Hi,

    I think the headline is a little too big and the pic of the lady next to it looks out of balance.

    The optin box doesn't really tell me why to subscribe. I can't see the benefit.

    The comments section also needs tweaking I think.

    Thanks

    Rich
