    Cool Hi

    Hey there all

    I have been lurking here for a couple of months while I build my first casino portal out.

    I have just started loading content onto the site, but would appreciate any feedback you guys can give me.

    My site is http://www.globalcasinoreview.com

    The site revolves around actual players coming and giving their views on their experiences at the various casinos listed. So feel free to register and write a bit as well.

    Any and all comments are welcome ...

    Thanks in advance for taking the time to have a look - and maybe help me start building up actual player reviews ...

    Default Your Site

    It's a nice site, very bright and informatve. But personally I'd move the flashing banner ads next to the reviews, they're very distracting for readers. Why not move them to below the review. Or if you wish to leave them in place change them for a text link - something less distracting than banners.

    I agree, its a nice site and the banners to tend to distract me when reading a review. Try using just the logo instead or a static banner showing the offer.

    The home page took a little while to load for me, not sure if it was just my connection at that time though?

    Your Play There Now and 'Read Review' buttons need a bit of work to. These dont need to flash as long as they are obvious. The colour of the button needs to alter from the Black to Orange gradient to stand out better on the red background.

    Maybe offer up a US casinos section as its own category aswell as listing it in the sub section of Casino Reviews.

    Improve the title tags also - for the home page you have Global Casino Review > Home - not the most descriptive for the search engines. Although the major focus is not on these tags so much these days, I still believe they count.

    Finally you may want to look at our affiliate program also, www.cwcaffiliates.com. Currently we have 3 great brands all accepting US players.

    Overall a great site I think.

    Strong site-I especially like the fact that there is consistency thoughout the site with the red headings. The $100 cash draw is also a strong incentive to get the site off the ground and getting players involved.

    I would suggest having a section for the latest promotions or casino changes/updates, much like the Gambling News section.

    With regards to promoting the site, do you have a marketing strategy to get players and traffic to your site? I would say that is your next step, next to the small edits Martyn and edinburgh rr suggested. There are some great resources out there, including GPWA members, who can help with suggestions.

    Let me know if you would like any content from any of our casinos to get you started with Everest Gaming as well

    Cool thanks for the feedback so far

    Hi guys

    Thanks for the feedback so far - most appreciated.

    I have made some changes - useing website screenshots instead of the flashing 250 banners, changed the play there now and read the review buttons to a green against the red background which works nicely I think.

    Also added a more visible list to the various review sections on the home page. I am looking at a little restructuring section wise so that I can add a current promotions section in, and also some poker reviews ..

    @ Martyn - I have already joined CWC - just need to add your casinos now

    @ Tanya - I have just signed up with Everest - how long does it take until the application is approved ?

    Cheers

    Default Nice site!

    I browsed through your website and I must say for a newbie it looks great! The site's outlook is fresh and easy to navigate. What I also noted is that you don't have banners slapped all over the place and it's topic specific.

    Well done!

    Keep up the good work.
