    Nice design, love the colors... The big Adsense ad gives me a bad impression at the beginning, you should place it between the content rather then at the beginning. Other then that, great work.

    Thanks))))))

    I'm using feedwordpress + hotfeed, it seems feedwordpress doesn't pull full news articles ;-/

    I think I should remove the small adsense ad and .. probably, the upper big one?

    keinehabe is it ok now?

    ThisDream, thanks :) I've removed the big one

    1) Feed spelling wrong in the graphic
    2) Use autoblogged or wp-o-matic. Better plugins
    3) Content doesn't really give me a good feel, may be too many ads on home page.

    It would be nice to be able to read the entire story when you click on the link.

    So, what does your content have to do with your blog title and url? Since your scraping cnet rss feeds, what does that have to do with anything local? Overall I think you will have trouble ranking.

    I think the theme you're using looks pretty nice, but I agree with rebellord that articles google have nothing to do with local news.. Also, you're posting way too many articles, dude. 118 pages over only a month?? It'd be more credible if the articles were backdated from a year ago. Plus, nobody's ever going to read all this..

    Thanks, guys, it seems like i have lot of work to do to improve.

    I use hotfeed right now. I cannot find how can I post only 1 post/5-8 hours with it and syndication plugin ;-/// Any help will be appreciated, really. I think, I should switch to local news, need to find a nice big city..

    The theme is free -
