That's a great looking gaming website, full of topical gaming news.
Really liking the layout, what wordpress template you using?
Its a good design, easy to navigate.
It'll net you some traffic,
however the name is like a foreigner wrote it as it doesn't 'flow'.
Hello, thanks for the comment. The Wordpress theme we're using is Continuum.
Thanks for the feedback. What do you mean by you'll net me some traffic? Thanks again.
Great to navigate, layout is really into games. I am no a big fan of games, but Liked your website
good good.. theme is great
I won't net you any traffic, the design and such will get you some.
Meaning, it's good enough to stay and look around on it without people taking one look and going "WTF? bye"
There's too much on the homepage (in my opinion), but otherwise it looks great!
But critism is always useful. I found it hard to know where to look. I gave the website 10 seconds as any visitor would, and it's hard to know whats what and where is stuff.. too much going on. BUT.. I'd give it 8/10
Is this an autoblog because it seems like it. Good design overall but clumsy and slow to navigate. The pages take time to load maybe you need better cache server side?
I like the overall design and layout. One think you might want to fix is the footer section where you have 10 different anchors all linking to your homepage. Google will probably see this as spam and may penalize you.
Best of luck!
Ditch the background image. It's not a clickable ad, but eyes go to it instead of your ads.
With a different background, you'll likely convert more visitors to clicks.
What makes you think it's an autoblog? The content is 100% original written by my authors. http://www.maxvideogaming.com/the-crew/
Really nice looking site. If you need ideas about what to write about, you should check N4G.com
Maybe you know about them, but just in case.
We actually do know about them, a lot of our articles have been featured on there.
Looks Good. I know about this Theme used
I thought the content was just spun or something because nearly all the posts are very short and only really have one image. The site also does not have much feedback/comments and quite a few articles.
The website has only been running for a bit over a month so I'm guessing that's the reason for the lack of interaction.
...and yeah the articles are quire short and newsy. We're working on getting some reviews on there.
Thanks for the feedback.
At first glance the home page seems very in-your-face, and I don't understand why you have a PS Vita background. It looks like an ad, but isn't one. Pointless.
I glanced at a few of the articles as well, and they were amateur to say the least. I'm not sure if your writers are native English speakers, but the overall syntax in sentence structure just seems bad. This could be due to a low level understanding of the English language.
I do like the images, and the theme isn't that bad. I guess I'm just not a fan of the square layout you have below the fold.
Anyways, I suggest you get some better writers. One of the writers, Bilal, who apparently is also a co-founder really seems to suck at writing to be honest. Run on sentences, bad grammar, and poor word flow are all over his articles. All I know is I wouldn't go to your site for video game news.
Edit: Sorry if I come across as being mean, but I am somewhat of a perfectionist. I notice the little things, and I tend to be brutally honest. Best of luck to you though.
