Been awhile since I've seen one of these sites. I can tell you that your "Google Map" is waaay off. Not even close to the location of the house.

Although it did "apparently" find the phone number I entered.

As far as what you can do to improve the site, hmmmmmmmm...

For one, there is really no information on the home page. When you input a phone number, and then the next thing one sees produces a "shock" when seeing almost 40 bucks to get a name and some other useless information.

Not sure what I would ever use a website like this for, so I'm probably not going to give you any decent help.

Now, do you have a marketing plan? Do you happen to belong to any forums or newsletters that are part of this niche. Newsletters and forums will give you an excellent source for finding out what others are selling and pricing for their products and services.

Have you done your market research on this niche. Do you have any experience in reverse lookup? Have you written any articles to try and build backlinks?

I don't see any type of disclaimer, terms of use etc... on a site like this I would highly suggest making sure you have all your ducks in a row when it comes to "legality".

As an ex-advertising man I found out that there is no promise:
what is the benefit from this service/product to me??

I would write a sexy headline to the offer, which would clearly tell
the user benefit ( not feature ).

Are you talking Latin! LOL!

Hi, Allen

just kidding. I shall try to answer as accurately as possible for me.

1. “I can tell you that your "Google Map" is waaay off. Not even close to the location of the house.”

I do not understand what you mean by that. The site, however, not added to Google Maps yet.


2. “there is really no information on the home page.”

All affiliate look-up sites are similar. There are hardly any information to provide other than what visitors will be getting from the service.

3. “When you input a phone number, and then the next thing one sees produces a "shock" when seeing almost 40 bucks to get a name and some other useless information.”

True. That is the concern. However, I checked 5-6 reverse look-up affiliate site and found similar. According to Quantcast, these sites are getting huge traffic. They must be making some sales!

4. “do you have a marketing plan? Do you happen to belong to any forums or newsletters that are part of this niche. Newsletters and forums will give you an excellent source for finding out what others are selling and pricing for their products and services.”

I do follow a plan-no newsletter or forum though. I just studied 5-6 similar sites that's all.

“Have you done your market research on this niche. Do you have any experience in reverse lookup? Have you written any articles to try and build backlinks?”

I do not know what you mean by “research” as degree and intensity of research would vary person to person. I studied some similar sites, did keyword research, studies vendor sites and regularly study article directories for more information on my keyword related subjects. There are 16 unique articles, all written by me, half of those already at EzineArticles and ArticleBase and more due. For backlinks I am using manual process emphasizing on quality. It is not giving me 1000 links in one day but I am happy with the outcome of around 10 quality links per day.

5. I don't see any type of disclaimer, terms of use etc... on a site like this I would highly suggest making sure you have all your ducks in a row when it comes to "legality".

I am not sure an affiliate site should have those, I never see in the similar sites I studied. These are well covered at the vendor site though.


So why I asked for critique in the first place! Because this is the first time I came so far. I am concerned, I am always wondering if I am doing something wrong! I am not concerned about traffic but I am very concern about conversion and conversion related issues, like landing page, look of the sites etc.

Hi, runner, many thanks. I am taking notes. The issue you pointed out will be the first to be dealt, I promise.

Hi, I am no expert in this regard. However, this much I know, the niche you are targeting need optins and you need to grow a good relation with them to make sales.

Hi, your site is exactly like those used for Google Adwords campaigns. The use of keywords except a very few and in your targeted keyword campaigns isn't needed for adwords. But i would make things just a little clearer to the visitor. Once I put my number in I knew for sure it was a reverse lookup site but not until Then. Try to make it clear that the Visitor can make a "Reverse Lookup" by putting in the number. Change or add to your Heading "Start Your Preliminary Search Now!" so people know exactly what they are doing.

Also since it goes to "Reverse Mobile" it cost money right off the bat. I prefer sites that give a little free information and charge for more details. What that means is this, I wouldn't buy anything there either. People don't want to do a search that looks free and then immediately go to a payment page. If they make it that far they'll just leave right away. So you might want to reconsider the affiliate program or page you are promoting.

Hi Stephen

Thanks for the time you spend on my site. I got your point. I am considering to change the headlines to more suitable one for sure. May be I should lift the services just below the headline (currently services are under the image)

Thanks

I would like to know how is this related to the Plug-In Profit Site program? Did you get that website through the PIPS program? I am just asking this because in my understanding, this is a Plug-In Profit Site support forum dedicated to discussions about PIPS related topics.

Turn your passion into profits.

Hi Gomer,

Amreen is a long time PIPS affiliate and a fantastic person. There are many PIPS members here who have sites that either used to be PIPS "looking" and have changed over time, as well as PIPS members who have branched out to "other niches".

If you only knew some of the interesting stories behind some of the names

Take care
