    Yeah its kinda OK, would rate it 5/10.
    Looks like its now on a shared hosting(Pretty slow loading). So i would advise you to get a VPS with 2gb ram and 1.5ghz+ processor.
    and finally get a Better looking theme as well :)

    The issue is that I don't have enough traffic to get sales through Amazon Associates to afford a VPS at the moment
    However, I have been doing a lot of SEO work recently

    Home page too long
    Site loading very slowly
    Link exchance page(Unless you want a manual penalty from Google) should not be there. Make it contact us instead
    Titles are not interesting

    Would rate 6/10

    Link exchange page deleted.
    How would you make the titles more interesting?

    Actually it is not slow loading, why everybody keeps repeating this? The site loades in 380ms, which is great. He don't need any VPS with 2gb ram or whatever you're talking about

    @OP, I don't know what you mean by ESTABLISHED tech blog, but this is just another "tech"blog in the sea of tech blogs that is made for guest posting and random articles

    Also, your blog decided to vanish in the middle of browsing and I got this on my screen
    View attachment 35881

    So, yeah....

    Thanks for the link, will have a look at it. :)

    dori92
    So you suggest I keep the same theme, but remove the slider?

    derago21
    Not enough :( to get reasonable Amazon sales.
    Have done some heavy white hat seo in the past couple of days/weeks.

    7/10

    - Image slider is too big, content is what matters and you have to scroll down to see it.
    - Design is great but you should go a little more into details. Text formatting looks like copie pasted from text editor, missing margin at a few places, etc.
    - SEO is not really good, for example description should be an abstract of content and not just the first sentence.

    But nice blog at all, keep going.

    Site is super fast as stated by SkyrocketSEO.
    I strongly advise you to read On-Site SEO optimization if you want people do come from Google...

    Good luck !

    Looks good but clearly not Established though.

    As per the site, the speed is fast but since the site is new, you should focus on content of the site like reducing the web page size and stuff. I see too big images that could make it load slow and also limit the posts to 3 so the content loading on the home page is reduced.

    Check the stuff you can improve here:
