    Just launched beta version of a new site AffiliateMarketer.com a few days ago. Right now features are minimal. If you dislike a site that is shown on the site you can create an account and then you'd have option to block sites from showing in the results. Welcome any feedback from look to load time to functionality.

    I'd change the pagination to ajax so the results will show up on the same page without having to reload the page. It'll reduce the sever load as well. Also, it took around 13 secs when I first clicked the next button but after that it loads instantly. You should also consider about creating a fanpage and twitter account to notify about the newly added articles. The layout that you have currently looks clean but the big blank advertising space made me think like the site is dead when I first opened the page. The banner space can be reduced so it takes only half of the screen estate.

    You got a new subscriber, well reader actually. Just bookmarked. :)

    Thanks for feedback. I thought about as you suggest showing all on same page. But everyone who visits site would average 1 pageview and I think pageviews does impact SERPS. Also, there is ability for person to buy a sponsored post which appears above the organic posts, and upload load of 'next' page it still appears there so it gives advertisers more bang for their buck.

    Yes, load time for the first time is shit. This is on a good server so I'm pretty sure it is site development and not hosting. Developer told me he did all he could do to make it fast. Will be looking to hire someone to optimize site for load time.

    Good point about the ad space. I'll throw up a real ad there tonight and reduce size of banner.
