    Your site looks good...easy to read and quick to load.

    Did you ever consider having an Opt-in with a "call to action" at the top RHS advertising a free report (one of yours) so as to gather emails and build a list?

    If you are willing then try that first and see what results you get however if you are good at videos then a video explaining what your free report can do for the person who opts in is another good way to gather names and email addresses and build a list.

    If you are using an Opt-in in conjunction with an autoresponder then you can send those on your list copies of your free reports on a regular basis (through programming the autoresponder) and who knows you may want to try putting in a unique report from time to time and charge a nominal fee (say $7) for it. This could bring in some income to initially cover your blog costs and if it is successful you may choose to grow the income from there.

    Good luck

    Agree with the above post. Site looks good and is easy to navigate.

    I would suggest giving some type of incentive to sign up to your list.

    Offer something unique and valuable, so people feel like they are getting something in return for their email address.

    Otherwise I don't think you will get many subscribers!

    good luck!

    Maybe I am blind but I don't see any of your pages appearing in organic search results. Why is that?

    I did a quick look and have a couple quick questions:

    1. What is it that you are offering to your visitors that I can't get from visiting well established and popular sites such as PCMag.com that I've been visiting for years?

    2. Who is your target market? I ask because you mention the best mobile in India. If it's native English speakers - US, UK, Australia, etc. I'd suggest you get a native editor to proofread things. The English is okay but there are enough little issues to distract attention.

      Thanks for your kind review and Let me answer your first question. As You Know I already mentioned that my blog is only few months old. Currently I don't have any intention or rivalry with Pcmag. Eventually when my blog grows you will definitely see what my blog offering which is more valuable than visiting Pcmag.

      For your second question, as I belong to India so, I focus on Indian market first. But soon I will expand it.

        Unless Geico, Weebly, Wistia, etc. are sponsoring your blog, and the ads HAVE to be there, I'd loose the ads at the top of the page. I think it's distracting and does not enhance your blog.

        You can replace those ads with a call to action button, offering something "unique and valuable" (as Jack107 mentioned) to people who signup. Other than that, nice job!

    Looks nice and clean, but it's a little bland to be honest. Could do with a slider of some sort at the top and some featured pictures to liven it up a bit.

    The only thing I would say is work on the subscription box. Write a few key benefits that your subscribers will get if they subscribe. I don't know why "Email address" is written in red but it's too "strong" and does not look like you can just click there an enter your email.

      The site looks clean but the subscription box does not stand out. Also, offer an incentive to get more subscribers.

    Good thing is that it looks clean.

    Something to make the site more attractive to first time visitors is to get more social following (e.g. more Facebook fans etc) and then place the Facebook Like Box higher up on your right sidebar once you achieve more fans. This way you get more social proof and it will be more likely for first time visitors to stay on your site to actually read instead of bouncing off.

    I like your site, its smooth and functional. What I don't like is the background. Doesn't suit the technology persona if you get what I'm saying.

        Hi.
        I just viewed your site and I must say that it loads pretty quick. The website itself is clean and straightforward. The color scheme is minimal which is good. I just noticed that your logo is a bit small, you should try to make it bigger so that it will be noticeable. The website is also quite boring. You should try to add a bit of visual elements/graphics to make the website look more interesting and inviting. Add a splash of color or something. You might also want a widget on the right side of the pane for your social media feed.

    I like the theme, and not much the logo, although It's acceptable.

    And about the social media icons, I think they look better in colors

    Good start anyways, congrats
