    I think you should reduce the amount of ads on your blog, which seems annoying. Other than that, it's decent.

    I see there is only one ad, you must have removed some.

    The page took some time to load. The theme is decent, but I'm having trouble navigating the site. Maybe find a new theme.

    Load time is 12 seconds - needs to be 1 or 2 seconds

    Title only 60 percent relevant to home page content

    No description meta-tag contents

    No keywords meta-tag contents

    its taking too much loading time, reduce number of scripts, and size of images or change hosting.

    seo sucks, nothing for the google uncle.

    design is ok .

    Home Page:
    Site looks good but you need remove at least one ads from the home page as its now looks more like a advertising then blog site that contributes to the readers.Get rid off "uncategorized" from the menu bar it looks unprofessional,optimize your articles for search engines.

    First of all, there are too much ads!!!
    Also, please do some SEO check on your website. As I see, you don't have a META Description, and you have some minor problems with your keyword.

    Second: Don't stop to write new and helpful articles. In some months of work, first income will come.
    Cheers

    Home Page:
    Looks good... though you're not collecting any email leads.. you're losing a lot of money by not doing so. Ask yourself is it better to possible make that 1-off sale or is it better to have the potential to sell to your visitor over and over again with targeted offers? Trust is built up over time.. capture leads, build a relationship with your followers and offer them valuable information.. in that valuable information promote offers that help them reach their goals.

    Website loaded in a matter of 5 seconds, just one thing, if you want to keep some ads, remove the ones than changes, the gif ones,
    like the green one that says *easily make 200$ per day doing this*, that hurts the eyes, when I first opened the website, it is the first thing that came to my mind.

    It loads VERY SLOW... Change something about this, or you will have all your users leaving and not coming anymore back.

    Slow to load, ad-heavy and low on content. Quite a number of typing/spelling errors and lots of affiliate linking. I think you will get more conversions if you use more images and reduce the sidebar ads. Good luck.

    I think you should have a better theme, which is good in navigation. And avoid few ads, It will be annoying for users.

    1. Change theme
    There are so many free quality themes out there, take some time to find the right one
    For a tricks-blog I would suggest a 2 columns-theme with menu at the right. It should also be wider as it is right now. The content part should have at least 800px to make it easy to read...

    2. Ads as everyone said already...
    You don't have any traffic yet, why put so many ads already? You are better off to start without ANY ads and put focus of the visitors on the content you have. When its quality content and they come back, you can start to add some ads slowly and tweak until you found the best positions

    3. Get rid of those weird buttons (Recommended, Try it)

    I have:
    -Removed an ad which I thought was slowing the site.Is it better now?Has site load time improved.I am with Fatcow hosting.
    -Removed "Uncategorized" from front tabs.
    -Added e-mail subscription form.
    I am so shocked why do most of you think ads are annoying because I have seen sites worse than this, having popups and more ads than this.Even reputable sites were high PR and more traffic doing this.
    -Going to change favicon also
    -Going to write meta description for website!
    For those who think theme is not easily to navigate, can you explain more because I don't see any difficulties in this.
