    Default Newbie site - still work to do but feedback and critism welcome

    Hi all,

    I have been working on my new/only affiliate website for several months now, firstly i am really enjoying the experience, secondly I have noticed that it takes more time than I initially imagined.

    Before i get to carried away thinking that the site I have designed and created is the best in the world (which it is most definitely not, go have a look) I thought i would seek comments from more of the experienced members out there.

    if you have a couple of minutes to spare I would be ever so grateful if you could provide some constructive criticism, be as honest as possible, you won't upset me.

    The website url is www.blackjackchoice.com

    Thanks in advance

    I really like your site.
    The reviews are short but informative.
    I like the color scheme. Clean and easy on the eyes.
    It looks like you've got your pages optimized pretty well.

    I would suggest setting the font on your home page to justified and possibly making it one size larger.

    Great start! Keep adding content!

    Nice looking site. Might consider adding some dynamic content and news to front page other than that I think you just keep adding content and do a few link exchanges and you should do well over the long run.

    I would expand the "blackjack articles" section a lot. Spend some time doing keyword research and select a few medium-volume keywords to target, and start writing. If you can't write well hire someone.

    +1 is an endorsement of the quoted post.
    People often post a reply that reflects what someone else is thinking - so rather than repeating what was previously said, they quote it and give it a +1.

    Hey rightclick,

    Great site. Really like it. Simple but great information on there.

    Also like the Featured Casino box that appears throughout the site.

    Good work, your effort has been worth it.

    Very nice site, if i look at the site in firefox it is changing the dimensions of the site if I change from one menu item to the other.

    Default Blackjack choice

    Hi Chris,

    First of all, I think your site is off to a great start. You have taken the time to really develop a theme for your site which is the start to a great brand.

    You might want to come up with a nice tag line for you logo. This will complement your logo and give the viewer an immediate association to the logo. Something like "The choice is yours" or "the winners choice". Just some ideas for you to ponder. Come up with something cool

    I like how you have a nice intro on your mission statement at the top of the page. Right away, the viewer knows what you're about.

    The only criticism I have would be to add some more color or people images, like actually playing blackjack. I also think you have way to much green in the site. You basically are using only black and green throughout the site. Then you've got some red for the banners.

    Remember, gambling is a form of entertainment too. Make the viewer feel like they have entered the Vegas strip. You don't need to over do it, but get some unique designs and images there. I feel like I'm either staring at a felt table or want to play some soccer on the grass background. Break it up a bit.

    Get some "sizzle" in there. That's why vegas is the way it is. Show me some fun and lights. In Vegas, they don't just sell the games, but the night life and lifestyle too. Imagine yourself walking along the strip and go from there.

    Otherwise, great job and good luck.

    Hi Robert,

    Many thanks for the lengthy reply, much appreciated.

    In short, i think i agree with all your comments. Surprisingly it takes you a developed site to realize what you want to do differently. I definately agree that the site needs more 'sizzle', not sure exactly how to design 'sizzle' but i will be looking at it asap.

    Thanks again for feedback.

    Hi Chris,

    Your site it’s for sure showing how much time and effort you putted into it and I’m sure players will notice it very soon. It’s clean, easy to go around and have good info on it.

    I would add more "sparkling images", as once a friend of mine said, just keep your theme going and don’t be afraid of dazzling it up…

    You're obviously on a good track so keeping it going

    I think it's very good and well written. If I had one small criticism it would be your youtube vids that come on automatically when you go to the review page. I would leave the choice to play it to your readers.

    A website is never perfect, even when you're finished and think it looks great, something else pops up that will need your attention. With what you have already you will do great - best of luck!

    Hi, I like your site but not very much. Its static one and color combination is ok ok. So make it dynamic and add more content to it.
