Hey everyone,

I just launched my brand new internet marketing blog about a few weeks ago and I have been making updates and trying to improve it everyday. I haven't really gotten an honest opinion about what someone thinks about it yet, so I was hoping you guys could give me your honest opinions about what you think about it. If it is crap, then let me know. Don't be scared to tell me it is bad, I want to know what you honestly think

    I like it. There are only 3 things I would do differently. These are use a smaller header since huge headers are outdated.

    Another thing I would do differently is tell my audience what they are getting if they subscribe to my newsletter.

    Also I wouldn't use connect with Nathan at the optin form instead you should place that phrase over the social media icons. But otherwise I think it's ok..

    best,
    Omane

    I like it!

    My only criticism is you have a glaringly bad spelling mistake in one of your titles

    Money Online For Begginers!.... Shouldn't that be Beginners ?

    It's easy to make mistakes like this I know, especially when you are rushing something, but bad grammar and bad spelling do not instill confidence in me as a reader.

    Your site looks good. But you have to work on your site content and SEO. As I can see that you have affiliate links in some of your post and it is dofollow which is bad for SEO. You have to nofollow your affiliate links (Use Ultimate nofollow plugin). Meanwhile you can also cloak your affiliate links (Use Pretty link plugin). Hope it helps you.

    Since you have asked...
    Nice clean, neat look, but the padding on the left margin lets it down a bit.

    You page speed score is terrible,and I see you are using the Optimizepress theme.
    I hope that is the mark 2 version you have there, because the first was/ is a major hacking risk.

    I don't own the new version so am not aware if it has been improved beyond all recognition , but version one was not ideal for a proper blog.

    Imo you should change that theme for a dedicated, and fast loading blog theme.

    You need to clean up the head too, there are too many stylesheets and too much javascript which is not helping with page speed.
    Unfortunately sorting those things out properly is both tedious and time consuming.

    For all that you are making good progress, well done

    My FIRST turn off right off the bat... "how to get 5000 facebook likes in 24 hours" Article is good enough...and then...I look to the left and what do I see? a big ol goose egg of a zero in your social bar for facebook.

    Turn off #2... "3 awesome ways to star making money online..." If you have truly done any of these... you would have examples and links. If it so easy to write a kindle book write 3 of them and link them. If Logo design is so easy show some examples of the ones you have had made using your process. im reading your blog so you have come through with that one.

    If you are just starting out with a blog, you need to develop "trust" and right now to anyone that may be a bit seasoned to the whole internet thing is going to read through this uh stuff like I just did. Don't just write it... back it up.

    I like your website, especially the banner above. But it looks like its missing something. I would say some pictures with the excerpts would be great. That would make the blog look more smoother and maybe a slideshow would really bring out the website more.

    I would also suggest to add a search bar. I like the overall look but its still sort of plain. Your Categories Widget should not be the last, I would put that up a little. And the Newsletter should be the first as that is your money maker. Your footer should contain links to your webpages like your about us, contact us, site map, etc.

    These simple changes will help alot.

    your site looks good. I've seen some typo-errors, and maybe put the searchbox on top of the widget column.
    The banner looks great. Overall, your site looks neat and good looking.

      The overall structure looks perfect.

      I'd make the search form a bit more obvious, and to the top of the sidebar. I didn't notice it at first glance.
      I suggest using flatter, simple elements though. That's the trend right now and I'm afraid anything shiny, gradient-y, embossed etc, looks a bit dated.

    I'm sure there are much better OptimizePress themes which you can install and use. This is somehow "empty" and poor.
