    I'm new to autoblogging and got it up today. Its using feedwordpress with only 1 rss feed being used. Can someone give me comments both positive and negative? I don't know what I can improve. Whether it is on the design or the plugins, I can use any advice I can get especially on link building. Ty

    What have you done and are currently doing to build links?

    It looks pretty decent to me. If you got the spare time, work on the title text a bit. It may not be that important, but its misaligned and looks really amateurish. It sticks out like a sore thumb, because the rest of the blog looks good.

    Are you referring to the word "Ipad Hype" and the slogan under it?

    Also, I haven't done anything yet. I am not sure where to start to build links - Thats my next step.

    IMO you could use a diff color other than black.

    I think the current colours fit well.

    I think it looks nice now, if you made any changes at all. Looks pretty legit, keep building links and you could have a keeper :D

    Seems as though you have all the ads in the right spots but don't forget to take out low CTR ads so you can get higher click ads on those that are getting clicks.

    I believe a friend of mine just bought like 10-15 ipad domains. He's just parking them with 0 content on them (he just got into domain name real estate). You might be able to get him to forward all of them to your site for a small fee. PM if you're interested.
