    Hi,

    I had built a coupons site a year ago and left it for a while. Used pogiblogs and crorkservice to build initial backlinks. Then added moneysite + pogiblogs in socisynd. Back in sept 2013 when I checked the accounts of affiliate networks and found that it generated around $1000, I again looked into what I can do better and started working on the site to improve user experience.

    1. Installed responsive wordpress theme (previously default wp theme).
    2. I used to have a single coupons post in which I had all the coupons for the brand (like bluehost coupons). Since there were around more than 20 out bound affiliate links in the single post so I created individual posts for the affiliate link and these posts were added in the single coupons posts instead of so many affiliate links. This increased the post count from 70 to 250.
    3. Added amazon cloudfront for better speed.
    4. Removed socisynd.

    I saw frequent drops in the unique visitors/rankings but never stopped working on the site since I was adding more value. Though the visitors and rankings have dropped but the PR of the site was increased by +1.

    Please let me know if anyone experiencing this. Also valuable suggestions please.
