    it's yet another betting bonus sites offering nothing much apart from links... you're going to need a lot more than that if you want to rank anywhere near the top

    According to tools.pingdom.com the homepage size is 2.4 MB which is way too much.

    1) Design is OK but not excellent
    2) Not enough content... in fact no content at all: just links
    3) I don't like the big pop up which appears almost instantly and occupies the entire page
    4) Home page load time: 4.11 sec for me: too slow
    5) Too generic: sports, casino, poker, bingo. A new website has few chances to compete against established sites without focusing on a precise niche.


    Hope this help. You have a lot of work to do... Good luck!

    Thanks for all your feedback. As I said I am just new to all this so am learning as I go along. I will take on board what you have said Mario the Gambler and look to improve and work on the design etc. Thanks for taking the time to look at the site.

    Cheers

    Your home page took over 20 seconds to load. It doesn't matter how good or bad the content or site is if people give up before they even get onto it.

    Are you using wordpress?

    Hey, welcome aboard. It seems the website is more then a half year online, right (archive.org)?
    Bit more then 30 pages are indexed by Google. And imho this is more happiness than understanding.
    I see banners end teaser text only - not really impressive for "have been working on a new website".

    The next "i have no idea" and for sure "i have no plan" wannabe super-affiliate?!

    You won't be getting very far without content. And yes ... I agree with everybody else that it is way too slow.

    Personally I hate it when external links are not clearly identified. Wherever I click on your site, it always takes me to a bookie.

    But this is your first site and I'm sure that you will learn fast if you are willing to put the hours into it. Check out some successful affiliate sites and try to understand what they are doing. I dare to predict that you won't find much success in the ultra competitive UK market if you don't improve your site. Also .. read everything you can here on GPWA. There is a ton of useful information.

    Very good advice by Mario The Gambler -> Find your niche!

    I also do not really see the usefulness of a site coded in XHTML 1.0 Transitional.

    This is a standard established in 2000.

    Why not use HTML5 as just about all modern sites?

    You need to bring way more value to user, you are competing really tough guys, so you need bring something really really valuable for customer.

    It's not bad website.

    Check your mobile version - a google search console verification code can be seen over the header.

    wrt external links not being clearly identified - I'm with you on that. It's maddening.

    As per the other suggestions...you will need a strong content marketing strategy in order to add value to your traffic

    In terms of affiliation, are you interested to add our UK casino offer?

    Youu definitely need more unique content. Checking the google index it only shows that it crawled only 27 pages on your domain. You will need much more than that to stand a chance versus your competing sites.
    It's also a good idea to define a keyword pool. Go for long tail keywords if you just starting out to have more chance of ranking.
    Be very specific about what content you are putting out there. Generic stuff almost never works as the market is too saturated. You need to be somewhat "different" to get traction.

    When we wanted to scale our site quickly we started to hire writers to review games and casino operators. You can find inexpensive copywriters on Fiverr or on iWriter, they will do a great article around 500 words for $10-$15.
