    Well I started my blog about a week ago after lurking around this forum for a while, I think im off to a good start but hell what do i know. I am in NO WAY trying to promote my site. Just would like to get some feed back from well established affiliate marketers. So any comments, constructive criticism or anything along those lines is welcome...well have at it and thanks in advanced. hxxp://www*total*fitness*review*org

    I think your site has a nice template, but perhaps you want to tweak it a bit to match your niche a little better by adding some graphic at the top. Your content is well done and your advertisements don't seem invasive. What kind of traffic is your site pulling by now? I know that it hasn't been around long, but could you list about how many hits per day it has had since you put it up? I just started a blog too a few days ago on blogger and am seeing traffic increases but would also like to see how others are doing for comparison.

    On my best day I've had up to 70 unique in one day, just today I started to use yahoo answers and also submitted to a bunch of directories. We will see how that make a difference.

    Nice clean template and brilliant domain name. Heres one thing that will take an hour or so depending on how easily distracted you are: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/white-hat-seo/55121-howto-own-googles-1st-page-w-your-blog-simple-stuff.html

    1. change the color of your google ads to fit your template more. I also HIGHLY suggest adding some inline, like the large rectangle.

    2. ADD GLOBAL TRANSLATOR!!!!!! -- This is the easiest plugin to add and get some free traffic! I don't know why more people dont use it.

    3. Add privacy policy plugin. if you don't you can get booted from Adsense

    Besides that you're doing good, keep up the good work!

    After checking ur website, I got WTF pwned by your advertisements. Check that u havent got popups/adware if you do, remove it now before yuo get ban from google.

    Secondly: you picked a very saturated niche, promoting your website is pretty much impossible, going to yahoo answers or w/e might make a small difference for you.

    agreed the niche is saturated, this was kind of my trial run. What ads are you getting "WTF pwned" by this is the first person thats said anything about that.

    I got a adobe acrobat raeder pop up and then explorer crashed.

    Anyway, heres my tip for you, yo can still earna descent income. Look up ALL the SEO methods on this website: popular threads are how to get indexed faster etc.

    You will learn to:
    Submit to RSS
    Submit to Web 2.0
    Submit to BlogTopSites
    Create a Blogger blog with rss feed/parse from ur original blog.
    Pinging your blogs, and your posts.
    Use PRStorm, moderately.

    Wait for the backlinks to update (1 week shud do it)
    Now you should see steady traffic, save the money, reinvest.
    Set up a website with 20 blogs on each.
    Set up a blog farm.
    Save up for a program called Xrumer, now use the program to rank all ur websites.
    Game over
