    love the carousel vids at the top, very nice. Is it making any money for you. How are you promoting it.
    Nice work, good luck.

    Thanks right now it makes no money i get lots of traffic from sidereel and other sites i have a few watermarked vids on torrents that's it so far.
    I got approved for zango but need to change the code so people aren't forced to install it.
    Any advice you guys can give would be helpful.

    Yes. Sell advertising or something. Use some creative ways to monetize. Maybe sell Dr. Who related stuff and other things related to other videos you may be carrying. Zango really turns people off though.

    I wouldn't recommend Zango; I exit a site no matter how interesting as soon as Zango pops up. People don't feel that they should be bombarded with things like that and it's quite annoying. I see you have Amazon, eBay, and Adsense which would be my recommendations. You should work on optimizing it to position them in the best areas for the best results then you should work on original content.

    Ok I will wait on the zango and move ads around.
    Maybe i need to find better traffic sources and find something that the current visitors are interested in I thought that promoting doctor who items from e*bay and the tv download site and the 3000 tv channels would sell but nope nothing sells.
    Does anyone know of a good ebook or something that could help me with this.
    Most of the ones i have read all say do the zango thing.

    Put some pay per play ads on there =D.. or some satellite tv or butterfly network links, every now n then during peak traffic make your site "under construction" and have links to the butterfly network(clkbnk product) and other pay to join movie/tv show network sites as a suggested alternative..

    That's what I'd do anyway. I noticed movieforumz did this.

    Here's my honest review.

    Your site isn't user friendly at all. You have WAY too many ads. Remember man, more ads doesn't equal more money. And zango popping up on every page is a big turn off. Most people visiting your site won't stay for more than 5 seconds, and you can forget about return visitors.

    Make it user friendly and test different ads and placement for conversions. GET RID OF ZANGO. Narrow down the ebay products to maybe just a couple DVDs. Do some cookie stuffing in the background if you're familiar with it.

    Here's a good site to model after:

    Code:
    hxxp://familyguynow.com/season.php?id=3
    hxxp://familyguynow.com/index.php?p=shop

    like xcptn was saying your ads are clouding the site. i just wanted to give another site as an example, this is for scrubs: watchscrubs.net . though he has ads that are kinda big, its a good layout where you can find the videos easily

    Ok I removed a few ads and zango only pops up when you actually get to the page to watch the video also added image on the home page and some text telling visitors to use the menu on the right to get to the episode they want to see. Guess i will see how this works out if this site starts to make money i will try and find a better script.

    "...You might want to run with something like this, warriormer.

    Designed quickly, if the wrong size, I can easily tweak it without distortion, if you let me have the correct dimensions. I can also mask it so all images are inside the header border if this is all your template allows but the image bleed adds a 3D feel. Maybe the TARDIS should have a neon glow around it, but that could cost serious dollars...lol!

    It was made with:

    1. MacIntosh computer

    2. Adobe Illustrator CS3

    3. Enhanced with Adobe Photoshop CS3

    4. 20 years experience in graphic design...lol

    The size should be O.K. at 800 x 185 It will just run a bit deeper, which is how a header should be.
