    First thing i notice is the BIG subscribe pop-up that can get a little annoying as it loads up on every page i clicked through. this wants me to leave the site.

    Also a lot of the comments you have are spam comments

    You should put some kind of Comment moderation, to prevent those kind of comments... IF you're using wordpress, akismet is a good idea.

    Agree with Mike Gregory about the comments as SPAM.

    When I go to your site, I don't understand what you are offering.

    If I don't understand perhaps many others will also face the same.

    Solution: Make a simple Sale page of what you are offering without all the advertisements on the left side and such. And please format your words nicely. It's hard to read the grey words with the black background.

    If you are using wordpress, choose a template that has a page that has no sidebar and you can use the whole width for your sales page.

    1) the big popup in the bottom which was a little scary in the beginning...
    2) use a white background in the content area and a dark font...keep it simple and clean..

    Okay. Here are my first impressions (which count when it come to websites).

    I would leave this page immediately.


    Every web surfer asks themselves 'do I trust this site?'

    The answer for me was 'no'.

    You had the pop up at the bottom of the page (I think that is what it's called in this case) which looked very spammy. I'm not ruling out pop ups to gather leads, but this one looked spammy.

    Above the fold there was practically nothing. Just a picture with a few page links (which btw were very hard to read).


    So from the get go, there has been no value provided and the site looks sore on the eye.

    Another thing, I don't know what you're trying to get the prospect to do. You have banner ads and adsense all across the left side of your page. This does not look good for trustworthiness and confuses the reader.

    With that said, here are a few tips:

    1) Remove the banner ads at the left hand side

    2) Get a new theme for the blog. Something which is easy on the eye. Preferably a white background with black text.

    3) Attempt to create a sense of trust. As if you are a friend making a honest recommendation.


    Start off with that and see what happens from there.

    btw, also agree with the others. The comments are spam. You don't want people reading those.

    I've had a brief 1 minute look at your site and I'm still not too clear what I'm supposed to be buying or what you're offering. I started off with an 'online route planner' and ended up looking at something about Filipino girls. I think you probably need to think more from the POV of the person landing on your site - the fact they know nothing about what you do or why they want it - and explain your concept more clearly.

      User "Pen*s Enlargement" really seems to enjoy your site and content. Perhaps you should visit his site and ask him why he has not spent money yet.

        I would change up the theme a bit, make it more user friendly and easier on the eyes. Also, I would get rid of all of the spam comments, keep it a little more regulated going forward. The other suggestion that I would make is adding a "sales" page so people really see and understand what you are selling.

    1) Hard to see your menu bar with the black font color.
    2)Black on white is more acceptable and easy to read than the other way around.
    3)The subscribe button like others pointed out was way too in-your-face
    4)The first adsense block on the left, displayed an ad for "get your ex back" and "perry marshall". Why would anyone interested in planning a trip be interested in those topics? Also, if you managed to confuse google with what kind of adsense ads to display, it would only mean that the page/site has not managed to speak to the crowd you are targeting.

    First thing, I would change the background from black to white. Too much going on.

    The theme is much cleaner and easier to read now, plus now that pop up is gone good move.
    Still some work to do mind you.

    One of the problems I picked up on straight away clicking on your site was the graphics on the page. My resolution is at 1600x900 and I noticed there are big gaps at the top of the page where the menu bar is located which gives the site an unprofessional look which will harm your visitors trust in the site. If I were you I'd try and make sure your site displays properly on all resolutions/browsers.

      I thought thats the problem with my browser... so i will have to change the theme again.

    Maybe you should decrease the size of your ebook cover. It is way too big for that site.

    Make it at least 50% less in size.
