    Hey Dave,

    I'm just going to touch on a couple of points, hope it helps.

    1. Overall, I don't mind how the site looks. Pretty clean, topic appropriate. Looks like you might have some small formatting probs on the sidebar.

    2. The most obvious tweak is your opt-in. There's no real incentive for people to join your list. Consider offering a free product, an eCourse, a top-ten tips, the possibilities are endless but make sure what you are offering provides genuine value. Use a compelling header for your opt-in. What is it, why do they need it, how will it benefit them. You should basically be applying best squeeze page practices to your opt in. How about a pop-up? Aweber lets you create those, and its a great way to get the visitors attention (you can adjust how many seconds elapse before the optin pops up after a visitor hits your page - test to find out the optimum time, and whilst it is subject to disagreement among warriors, generally 5+ seconds is better than instant). Ditch the 'powered by Aweber' part of your opt in.

    Anyway, these are general tips but I wish you well and hope they help.

    Full disclosure: I did not fully read the link you gave.

    However, I can already tell you one thing for sure: too much text, not enough pictures. It's good to have a lot of text content since Google loves that but break it up into sections with h1, h2, h2 headlines and some images.

    A good rule of thumb is to have 2-3 text paragraphs then insert a h2/h3 headline then a small image. So for 8 paragraphs of text it should have 3-4 sections.

    Hi:

    I like the color of your site.

    You mention about getting free report by signing up, but never mention about the benefits.

    Maybe you can improve it by showing the ebook cover of your report, list down some benefits about your report, what problems can you solve by reading your report & so forth.

      There is something not quite right with this website, maybe its the text-too small, too compacted. I think it needs more images to liven it up.

      Consider having a banner.
      Try to make the opt in form more appealing.
      Make your title bold and include sub titles.

      Lastly you can use the services of a designer. Your website still looks like the original template. I remember using one of these myself.

    I liked the color scheme, but unfortunately there was nothing that made me want to stay on the site, so I x'ed out of the site. Now, if that's the behavior of someone who has been asked nicely to review your site, how quickly do you think the average internet user will x out of the site?

    Waay too much text and clutter. I'd do something like this:

    CHEAP WEB HOSTING SITES • TOP 10 • March 2011

    where you have very quick summary points that link to the review/content below.

        You can use Adobe Creative Suite 5 if you want to go the manual route, although if you don't have a lot of web design experience, this set of programs will be difficult to use. I would recommend going with a free WordPress 3.1 installation and then search for a premium theme that you can apply to the website.

    Bravo for the good font size.

    Most Wordpress sites I see have way too small fonts.

    Personally, I wouldn't have the pop-up appearing on every page, just the home page. Otherwise it get's a bit annoying for your visitors and they'll probably leave.

    Cheers,

      Agree with the above, pop up on every page is damned annoying! All in all not a bad site though, got to be said.

    I don't think the site would convert for me.

    For instance the site title reads: "Affiliate programs Reviews" instead of Affiliate Programs Reviews. There are also way too many blinking and out of context ads (what are those wordpress plugin/course ads doing in the middle of a post about social media marketing?)

    I don't think it's a good idea to litter your site with ads and banners.

    And like someone already mentioned, it's a good idea to use subtitles to break the mass of text.
