    Hello everyone,

    I have just recently published my new website and it is doing a lot better then I thought it would with getting visitors. There's just something about my website that I don't exactly like (color wise) I was hoping someone could take a look at it and offer any advice / critique.

    I would really appreciate it, thanks.

    I'd have thought a site link would be more useful than your skype account?

    It looks great to me, just change the colors to something unique (like blue) because the current color of your site matches the ones on ViralNova etc which make your website look like a straight up clone.

    I don't think posting your link here is prohibited, it's just if you're trying to promote it here for monetary gain. I still wouldn't recommend anyone post their link here though

    I like the colors but your content is a bit all over the place, but for your type of site that's not too bad as I'm guessing it's used for social media click bait type articles.

    You have a lot of list articles, maybe one of those themes that requires a user to click 'next' for each item might benefit you.
    Example: http://www.brainjet.com/world/14153...y-have-thalassophobia-fear-of-the-sea#slide/0

    I would also try to make your subscriber box stand out more, it's a little bland (and you can barely see the text that says 'enter your email here')

    Just my opinions but overall I think the site is good

    Make up some pen names and change the username admin. It's very impersonal. Also, the facebook like box in the sidebar si too big.

    Check the Thread correct before posting.
    he already gave the Url.

    Site Looks fine to me!! Also the top post that "Bulls can not see" if it has a slider it would look more better.

    Cheers

    You're right, posting your links is not prohibited unless you're using your site to circumvent the site rules (e.g., linking to your site filled with affiliate links). Other than that, most people here do not post their site URLs simply because associating your website or another person's small website with a black hat SEO forum is not always a good idea.

    By the way OP, that little pop-up message that appears on your first visit to the site has got to go.
