    Nice website. Instead of using this link you should create back links on the topic name.

    Pretty neat website. I think what I would suggest is you to change your adsense link to blue rather than the red one you are using.

    The design of the site is not too good, but it is looking OK because it is designed on white BG. In terms of SEO, the site is OK. ALso, the site Loads faster. I suggest, the ads should be placed on more on right site.

    Hi bd24x7
    you have a nice start here. The site looks a bit crowded, you might want to add more spaces in between articles.

    It looks like you account has been suspended again. You might want to work on those issues first and figure out why it keeps getting suspended.

    Site design: Your featured images are blurry, I think you are just enlarging the smaller image. Doesn't look good. What is with the green bar at the bottom? Looks out of place.

      Thanks redonthehd for your opinion , I just made it 12000ms to 20000 ms.

      Thanks SarahEmpower.

      Yes the images are really blurry, Recently we are using small size of Photo.
      From Some SEO forum i heard that if i use small photo then it will help to load the website faster and that will good for the website. so we are using small photo, so its looks blurry/fuzzy.

      Thanks you Paul Moss.

      Already i write why the Images are fuzzy, do you really think the white is overbearing?? I just add a border .

      Thank you Ken Houck.
      If i have a chance to give 10 thanks in a post then i will do that.

      I Think your comment is the most valuable for me.

      Our site is very new but we want to make our site user friendly. and we have a plane to add a custom Scholarship searching option where student can find out any specific scholarship more easily.

    Hi bd24x7, You've got a lot of great information on your site. I clicked through to some inside pages and they looked good also. Here's a couple of things I noticed that may help you improve it. 1) You need a logo or header of some kind. It isn't as obvious on the home page but it really stands out on the inside pages. The front page video never loaded for me until I refreshed. I was using Firefox at the time. And one other thing... I really wasn't sure what you wanted me to do when I got to your site... sometimes clearly explaining what you want people to do... Scroll down pick a university... click on their scolarship programs, etc... really helps people. Hope that helps.

      Thank you JonBird a lot for your valuable comment, Yes we have a logo (Designed by me on paint ) and there is a slideshow not video on home page. i don't know why you cant see that but i think your comment help us to improve our performance and makes the site more user friendly. what about adsense placement ?

      I would examine your responsive design - it seems to flip over to mobile a little too sensitively on my laptop.

      Perhaps add the "sign up" up so it shows in the visible screen above the popular area.

      All in all, I like your website (although I did not go past your front page) and all of the things I pointed out are just tweaks.
      Hello cheddarben, a lot of thanks for you.

      really i can't understand why you and some other people can't see the logo. I just try tor and i can see the logo.
      For the Main showcase area: this is a wordpress site and i can add a widget by category but as we are just start the site and try to add more information so we just add the "nternational Scholarship" category for the Main showcase area (Temporary) but when we are ready it will go for "Blog" category. Hope then we have the chance to add some blog post with better photo.

      This site is responsible for PC/laptop/Tab/smartphor/Mobile Phone. is it flip over too much ?

      Thanks again.

        The site looks even better now with the logo. I would think about making that logo bigger... it's a good one and it should standout more. Also... you've got a ton of white space to the right of that logo.... what are you going to do with it?

        Good job bd24x7

    The site looks good, a bit crowded without clear action steps for the visitor. Aside from that, sub-headlines should be smaller then article headline. Stick with one font and color, it is distracting for the visitor to read.

    Hope that helps

    The only thing I'd change is the logo. It's simply too complicated. The first letter with the graduation cap? Perfect. Leave it at that. Change the "c" in "Scholarship" back to a regular "c" and the "i" too.

    Best of luck!
