    http://therandy.tk

    Tell me what you think?
    Also quick question:
    I have created many pages using Blogger. I use these as subdomains, like movies.therandy for example. These 8 pages, located on Blogger, link back to my main page, and link to various other sites. Would this be considered a link wheel sort of?
    Sorry I was watching a video on this earlier and I thought that I may have a link wheel already.

    Anyway feel free to trash the site if you think it sucks. I just want to get some opinions.

    I would strongly encourage you to buy a more mainstream domain extension such as .com & .net

    I don't think .tk domains are very good for building trust and it's hard to remember and often highly abused by spammers.


    1. I don't advise you do the subdomain structure your currently using. Google often treats sub-domains as different sites.
    2. I'm sure this site is new, but try to get some more content on there.
    3. I'd kindly suggest you use a better looking theme.
    4. In general avoid link wheels, it's a very old tactic and is associated with getting penalized.

    Sorry, Not to hurt your feelings but your website is very clunky and a bit unattractive. You may want to invest In a better theme design. Some of your images are also stretched which makes them look slightly warped. While it is certainly true that Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, Those who find your website may quickly dismiss it and move onto the next website... Many years ago the first website that I designed and built looked 1000 times worse!

    Duly noted.
    The theme sucks.
    I will try to change it into a more attractive theme.

    I've heard this.
    I'm really quite scared of this.
    I hope thats not the case.
    I actually paid for this domain. Mostly because I couldn't get the subdomains together.
    I hope their not a scam like, because I really like this domain name.

    In order to help you most, I would have to be blunt with you about the design. As a website critique and analyzer, I see many critical flaws on your design that you need to change right away. My guess is your bouncing rate must be high.

    1. Your menu bar seems pretty much like a text. Maybe you see it as trendy and beautiful but it does hurt your traffic or ultimately conversion rate.
    2. The word "feature" doesn't seem like it is featured to me, people just look pass it without even noticing it which is very bad.
    3. Your caption for each picture is almost impossible to read. White on grey is never a choice.
    4. Your posts/pictures overwhelm your audience, remember the more choices you offer, the less effective they get.
    5. Your website looks like there is nobody there. In my experience after many researches, most people buy/visit a website which the owner/admin uses their content to converse with their visitors.

    To sum it up, making a new design is way easier to change all of these. You can go to Fiverr to hire someone for $5 to make a simple, clean blog for you - it will perform way better than this - I am sure.

    I hope this helps you - whatever question you may have regarding this, feel free to PM me.

    Redesign your whole blog.
    It's extremely messy.
    Also get a .com it's cheap. Only ~$10/year

    1) I would never open it if someone sent me a link to it because of the .tk (everyone can register one even without registration)
    2) The theme sucks.
    3) It is really slow.

    This may hurt you a little bit but I must say that your blog is g is unattractive. That's why you can not bring the traffic.

    1) Far to Slow a loading time.
    2) .tk domain, reeks of Spam website
    3) Low quality content which you will struggle ranking for.

    All in all, I'd say you have quite a lot of work to do. Don't let that put you off trying to make a serious go of it. A new theme would do you wonders.

    The second blog is definitely a big improvement in my opinion. It looks much much better. To add on to what others said about the first, I believe your menu was a little overcrowded. Sorry I can't give you much more input than that, I'm new at this also. Good luck!
