    I think it is a good start. Like the details reviews and the logo.

    I assume you are in the process but need to fill the empty spaces in top menu and specifically on the right side.

    Not too fond of the grey background.

    You need to speed the site up a bit. Compression and caching will do the job.

    Good Luck!

    Yeah it is still a bit raw.
    Top menu will be full eventually, will stick in some sports silhouettes or something.
    Haven't got caching on yet, but yes will get that on and speed it up soon.

    What would you suggest in place of grey background MMM?

    The site loaded fine for me and I agree with MMM on the detailed reviews their good. Looking at your golf page (huge golf fanatic that I am) I think it is too long as the info you have on there would be great as five or six articles on golf instead of just one page. As for the background I think if you can add page specific imagery. i.e put a golf image on the golf section. And as and when you have other sporting topics you could do the same.

    I will keep my eye on this site as it looks like it could be very useful. Best of luck with it!!!

    I agree with the other comments. Empty space and grey background.

    Maybe you could add a white background to the right sidebar? Now it is not very clear with the letters on the gray background.

    But overall I like your website! Good luck!

    Nice domain, kiss Matt on the bald head.

    The site is too generic for my taste. But on the bright side, the generic stuff you did do properly. There's a lot of room for improvement and if you play your cards right you got a winner.

    I like the logo.

    Don't change the grey background, it looks good and it makes the content (on white background) stand out.

    Holy crap dude, that's longer than the last time you showed it to me. I think I have sites smaller than that page...

    There's a slight issue with the responsive design on your betting sites page: http://www.onlinebetting.org.uk/betting-sites/ - between 550 and 600 pixels the bookie name and bonus are one the same line.

    Simple fix - just need to kill the float on the bonus at 600 instead of 550.

    9921 words on that page. There's enough material for 15-20 separate articles all linking to each other.

    I think it's a nice site. Reviews are incredibly detailed which can only be a good thing and the simplistic display I find is often the best way.

    OnlineBetting.org.uk is a nice domain. How much did that set you back?

    The site is well designed, loads quickly, is easy to navigate, and the domain name is excellent. The only thing that I think it needs is a banner or two on the right side underneath the "Latest Articles" menu bar.

    I like it, I have not looked at it from a mobile so no comment on what others have seen there.

    I see you talk about free bets, be careful with that since a number of operators have recently changed their policy a little on what is allowed to be said concerning free bets.

    Overall though I liked the feel of the site and first impression.

    I'd rel="nofollow" all external links. Im not sure if it's as beneficial as it used to be, if at all nowadays, but I do it anyways. When traffic comes, I'd test that _blank too. My external links open on the same page, after various testings and reasons done 2 years ago.

    Read a few tests and feedbacks recently and people are legit getting pissed at website "choosing" for them how to open external links. Not gonna ramble about it, just test it one day see what's better for your traffic.

    Good foundation overall. I wont be too concerned in terms of design as themes can be easily changed. Generic: yes! Is it bad: hell no! I've said this many times, people overestimate their website uniqueness and in the end it doesn't even matter. Doubt the top 110 freebet websites differ a lot, what separates they is the serp placement.

    Doesn't matter how much uniqueness or generic content YOU may think you have, if you users find it unique for whatever reason: graphics, style of writing, update frequency, or whatever other reason, they will come back. Perfect example is the livescore site I've chosen to use. It's not unique, it's as every other livescore site. I just like the colors and the text style of it and that's why I chose it.

    Once that habit is established people will return to check for new content. I swear and Idk if anyone else does this, but I have websites bookmarked that I check a few times daily, for NO logical reason but Habit.

    Good luck and if all fails, you can always visit baldidiot, distract him and switch half of his aff links with yours.
