    Hi guys,

    I'm strictly white hat now with my potential money site and I was wondering if you could rate it for me and tell me what I need to improve on or remove? Also I was wondering if I should remove the first post of my money site since it's a made-up story. Here is the site http://ballerinadiet.org

    Right now I removed the cloaking of my affiliate links because Google doesn't like this at all. It's called sneaky redirects and I didn't know that. I only cloaked my links because the clickbank url looks ugly.

    I have original and unique content now so I can't be de-indexed for duplicate content. It's pagerank 2 and I have a domain age towards my emd. So check it out and let me know. I realized that I put too much work into it to just let it go.

    Your site appears to be down. Are you currently doing some changes?

    I thought it was just me but after checking it on
    Code:
    http://www.downforeveryoneorjustme.com
    - I can confirm it is down as of this writing.

    It's nice, very simple but nice. Personally i would add a bit more personality to the site to make it a bit more unique (custom banners, some colors perhaps). On the contact page it says your full email address! I wouldnt do that, you're going to get a lot of spam because of that.

    To be really honest your site is far from being at least semi good.
    At least learn a bit about UX and web 2.0 design. Even better CRO basics would help you a bit.

    And don't forget testing.

    Thanks sorry the site was down. I'm using free hosting and their servers were down last night. Yeah I wanted the site to look simple. I want people to focus on my niche keyword that I'm promoting through clickbank and not anything else. I want my site to look good for google as well. I don't see how adding banners and image will do anything. I do have images though

    Well when i think ballet i don't think a carbon white/grey/black theme. I think of some pink, red, purple, soft yellow. It might look nice for google but google isn't the one going on your site and buying products / clicking ads.

    I would rate it 6/10 for design and layout. You can improve it and use some images to give it a nice touch.

    I understand what you're saying but the Ballerina diet is not about Ballerinas though. It's only about their figure. And I don't want to become deindexed because google doesn't like my site. I'm trying to rank first again and then edit. I used to be number one for this keyword, but my site doesn't pop up anymore. Now I'm trying to get it back up there. Thanks though and I'll keep this in mind. I just changed themes as well because I had the flexsqueeze theme but it wasn't doing anything for me.

    Thanks. Where should I add images besides my posts? It's a theme btw

    Honestly, I would try and use a better theme / design. Something people in your niche can easily relate to.

    Having quality content is one thing and design mainly helps your conversions. Additionally, I would consider paid hosting in the long run.

    Thesis theme by itself needs customization to look good. If you aren't that experienced yet I would go for either woothemes or elegantthemes.

    Hey i have a reseller account with my host that i use because i have around 5 sites myself. I could host you for free if you want until you make some more money. That way you can use your first clickbank sale on backlinks or a paid theme.

    I am a newb here.

    I have the gestalt of it in my mind only. I only looked at it for about 5 seconds.

    The pictures are really not so great - cherries or some food . The pictures are all 2 inch square. The text is big blocks of what is probably very dry stuff.

    I am sure your website will be good for "robots" and all the good meta stuff that I am here to learn more about. BUT I want to be helpful and honest, and I would say that your site looks cold and cookie cutter. And I'd have to be foolish to think that you actually have some useful diet on this web site.

    It looks like it might be some bad site of some kind.

    A "real" ballerina diet that had something good to sell me would have credibility somehow - maybe you need some testimonials with girl next door photo's of real citizens saying that they made the "breakthrough" with the ballerina diet like nothing else out there. And they bought your magic pills and it worked. That would be a step in the right direction.
