    Can anyone have a quick look at my blog and let me know what you think ?
    All criticism welcome :D, cos it's bound to be shit as it's my 1st blog.
    My main concern is the ad placement, err actually it's the ad contents, as they don't really have anything to do with my niche, but don't expect much with ad(not so)brite ;) (made 0.25$ in about 2 days, lol)

    Anyways, I'll respond in the morning, as it's coming up to 2am here

    This is my 1st attempt at a blog, and I was following the tutorial in ernesthemingway's thread, and he suggested using adbrite.
    Also, as it's my 1st blog, I want to use it for BH testing purposes (i.e. best ways to generate traffic etc), so it's probably best not to use Adsense on the site, lol :D

    looks better, the top banner is getting cut off by your right colum

    but I'm a perfectionist as you've probably noticed from all my postings here

    Don't like the template, but that's just me.

    Colors are off-putting...sleep inducing. Lot's of blank space. Looks amateurish, although it is your first attempt.

    I threw something up using a different template http://auctions.eureka-marketing.net. Work in progress. Check it out if you like and look to see how it all blends together.

    Took all the ideas from BHW.

    Yes, I know it's a bit sloppy, and the bottom links don't use my clickbank account, but it's just a test.

    Hope that helps.

    lol, it looks like the best thing is to change the template altogether.

    Yeah, you don't want the blog to look like crap, imho, although others here feel differently. I think that if the blog looks bogus, you won't get the click, but they'll hit that back button in a split second.

    You've been around del, and I bet you can whip up something appealing.

    As to the plugins, there a plenty here to choose from, and they do make this world almost auto blogged.

    I don't get it. I've scanned all my plugins with both NOD32 and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, and all the themes, and I can't detect any virus.

    What I do seem to have though, is the following for some reason, in my older posts:

    document.write(String.fromCharCode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

    ok, that last problem ^^^ has stopped now. Looks like it was being cause by the Wordpress Uniquefier plugin.

    Edit: it looks like that virus alert that powerpc received was also being caused by the plugin, as he's no longer getting it :)
