Looking for criticism

18 replies
Hey Guys,

I wanted to see if I can get some advice on my site. I have article written just about every other day. I also manually publish the articles on other sites (about 10 different article sites that have a high DA), doing some PPC traffic to some articles (low budget), and I also connected the page to facebook. However, I'm still not seeing any sales what am I doing wrong? Is it me or am I choosing the wrong offers?

Here's my site: HealthDayTime

Your advice (constructive criticism I hope as some people can be absolutely brutal on WF) is very much appreciated.

    I'm sure you need to look for your layout while you can notice that read more button which is not in the straight line for the 3 post below which cause your site look imbalance and messy.

    For the free newsletter is better to highlight the button or put some call to action while it will help you to get higher CTR.

    I like the design of your site. You should look to find your target audience more specifically using blogs, forums. (search on Google like your audience would, and navigate from there).

      Hey David,

      Thanks for the advice, just to make sure I understand, do you think I should contact other bloggers in the same niche who may refer my site to their readers?

      Thanks

    like the layout design, just a little bit adjustments on the texts on the RECENT ARTICLES

    do some active web 2.0 and forum post/ comments addlinks on it.
    fresh contents.

    make sure you had the basic on-page SEO for now.

    thanks

    I would definitely go to blogs and forums on the same topic and become an avid poster helping others and offering advice. If allowed, put a link in your signature. The other thing is to start building your list. Perhaps create a free eBook or guide and place a link to the opt-in form in your email signature, forum signatures, etc. I'd also start creating videos about the products you're offering, tips, etc. Put them on Youtube and embed on your site.

    In the contact article, why not put the call to action as a caption under that pic to the right? Something like "Get contacts 25% everyday, visit here" then when clicked it takes them to your offer.

    There of course are many things you can do here and I'm sure a lot of warriors will tell you, but don't give up. The hard part is getting started, which ya obviously done. I know so many that say they want to do this and don't even have a domain...bummer.

    I don't know you, but I'm happy for you and I can't wait to see your success you're bound to have in the near future.

      thanks for the motivation! It really does add a little extra something for my week getting comments like that. I've seen so many people get frustrated here on WF and I can see why, but what you said really keeps me going.

      I def agree I need to place these links in more well seen places and make give a clearer call to actions, working on that now.

    Thanks Ron,

    The ebook idea is something I need to do along with blog/forum comments.

    In terms of the videos, is it possible for me to just take videos that already exist and re-post them (official product videos for example)?

    Here's my site: HealthDayTime

    Your advice (constructive criticism I hope as some people can be absolutely brutal on WF) is very much appreciated.
    First off, it looks great!

    You asked for it's:

    (1) Tiny suggestion for making your stuff congruent (add a y; add an s

    Healthy day time is a great site name.

    Instead of "HealthDay" in tab name, how about HealthyDay?
    Instead of "Healthy days" in decoration, how about Healthy days?

    (2) Tiny suggestion for article click through

    "Choosing the Right Contact Lenses" is a great article!

    Your title could be more actionable.

    A better example?, Your earlier article's title "Helpful Tips To Get Rid of Acne" along with the action oriented picture you chose.

    Hope this was helpful.

      Thanks! That was my first posting. Appreciate you giving me a thanks rating.

      I was pondering your title.

      How about adding "Why Bother" and turn it into a question, as in:

      Why Bother Choosing The Right Contacts?

    Ok, first off I do not see any how to article here. You need to provide solutions and reviews of products in your website. You should also have a pop up with an opti-in for so as to get the email of your visitor. Getting ppc trafic for a website like this one seems to me very expensive at this stage of it, and I would prefer SEO. A freelance with 5.0 feedback at Elance or Odesk will help you get some decent targeted traffic for your website.

      Try putting Adsense ads, you will definately earn from all the browsers. Also try changing the front page, make it more appealing, like hubpages. And banners might do the trick too.

      the freelance idea sounds good. However, would adding a opt-in not be a bit too pushy? The main purpose of the site is just to bring interesting idea and not really create reviews for products...would it still be necessary to create reviews?
