I just set up my autoblog on blogger for halo. I added adsense. Sorry for it being sloppy, but it is my first blog ever. It took about an hour to complete to this point. I would love your feedback.

But.....you really need to change the background color. Green really does not

fit a Halo "theme". I would go darker. Also, the green is making it hard to read

some of the text. This is something easily fixed.

You get a A+ because you took action...which is the key to success.

Thanks. I was working with the color scheme a bit and gave up. I have great vision, but failed to realize those who do not. I am going to make backround\text dark and fix my adsense ads to match.

Good job on your first blog! If you wanna add graphics and stuff, you can probably use the stuff in the Halo 3 press kit.

I plan on making a few others for popular video games and then linking them. Graphics will be added also.

Not bad for your first blog. I do suggest more halo 3 images. Also you want your adsense to blend in! So that means the background color should match whatever its sitting on. No borders, text and link colors should match those on the page as well.

Where you have the adsense at, you should use the horizontal adsense links not the banner block.

The little block you have now, should be at the bottom of your posts.

If you have a navigation menu, put a vertical text link block in your nav menu so people will click on the ads thinking its part of the nav. People at 3am will screw up and click it before they realize it was an ad lol

You can do 3 ads on a page for adsense, I suggest using all of them!

I would suggest though getting at least a free webhost that supports php, mysql, and wordpress. Put wordpress on the free host, get a halo3 wordpress theme (it will look nice and flashy and good). Put all adsense in place, maybe some clickbank. Then just get a cheap 99cent info domain or buy a .com or something for like 9 bucks a year and point it to your free host. So you have a website for under \$10 a year that looks nice, you can completely customize, and will be much more flexible.

Then work on backlinks to your domain and getting traffic. You could then install caffeinated content or some other auto posting plugin and its handsfree. You just work on backlinks.

You really don't have much flexibiliy with blogger.

I just used blogger to get an easy one started. Does WP cost anything? If it does, will a nulled version get detected? I have a domain that is unrelated, can I create a subdomain and will I still get decent traffic to my niche? Can I put CPA on it?

Wordpress is free. You could go the subdomain route if you like. You just need to get yourself some hosting.

blogger is better than wordpress free. Blogger is optimised for google, your pages WILL be indexed in blogger if you do SEO and theres little/no chance of googleban/sandbox.
