    I suspect you already know it needs a lot more content.

    It loaded quickly and design/layout does look good to me.

    Aside from that the wording you have used is too flowery - think visitors will glaze over if they stop to read. Suggest simplify it, get rid of the complex sentences and clever words.

    Nice design, and the domain name is very easy to remember. It just needs more content.

    it definitely needs more content but the layout is great. Especially the logo is perfect. I like clean websites and this is one of those. Maybe I would use a smaller verson of the slider but the rest is really good. You could also use a cleaner font this would make it better to read.

    The table you use - where you list casinos - its not working all good when accessing from a mobile. Try looking at making the table responsive (e.g. on mobile some columns are not shown) - or go all "responsive" and use something else than a table to display a string of options to choose from. I'll vote for the later - its what the kids what

    Best of luck

    Hi dbest,


    the design looks good and I agree with the users who posted above: you need more content.
    I also think that the central image at the header takes a lot of space from your site, that could be used for something more interesting.

    I might be able to help in regards to the content, sending you a PM right now.

    Good luck with the site!

    Hi dbest,

    I agree with most the people here, great looking clean site in need of a lot more content.

    You have quite a lot of space here to run some banner ads if you want to, don't go over the top as this can scare people away and distract from good content.

    I'd recommend tying your site together a little more, so if you have a news post for a casino make sure you have corresponding review that you can link to, this makes everything much more fluid.

    Sign up to as many affiliate programs as you can and see where you get the best commission deals and the best conversion and only spend your time listing the best available.

    Thumbs up

    Hi,

    In all cases, there is what you want to hear, and what you need to hear..

    Let's begin with what you want to hear:

    Things I like:

    The logo. Very well and nicely design. Professional looking logo right there.. (It is so nice, that I actually believe it would deserve a better looking website around it.)

    Your site looks clean, and although I like it (most likely because of your nice logo) I also have to say that it is a bit bare at the same time. I wonder: Did you create the theme with <cite>artisteer </cite><cite>or some sort of creation software? Perhaps to make it look better, I would try to fill the side bar..</cite>

    <cite>Now what you need to hear in my humble opinion:</cite>

    <cite>First of all: Make your links so that they open up in a new window! If a visitor is on your site and clicks on let's say the link to play in club world (The link is very had to find on the review btw) Since your links open up in the same window, what just happened with your site? It closed. Imagine this visitor did not like Club World but wanted a different casino..

    Again, what happened to your site? It closed.. Now that he closes Club world, he has to start all over again.. If your site was still open, he would have come back to it, and perhaps chosen one of the other casinos which he might have liked.</cite>

    <cite>Your menu on top.. </cite>

    <cite>We see the news. If it is news, it should not be outdated. If it is outdated, perhaps don't call it news. Your top menu should only link to the most relevant content on your site. The about, the news, and the contact page could perhaps go to a secondary menu, below your site or on the sidebar. For SEO purposes, you want the bots to encounter only the most important content on top, and as far as visitors go, you really want them to go to your casino reviews.. Not so much to the about, the contact page, or the news page..</cite>

    <cite>The main home page banners..

    The big ones. Although beautiful, (nothing wrong with the graphics) I would change the links ASAP. Do not link out to your affiliate links. This counts for all your links to the casinos! Cover them up. For instance by using your .htaccess file. Your link should be http://dbestcasino.com/visit/luckyredcasino NOT http://tracking.affiliateedge.eu/default.aspx?AffUserID=9111&casinoID=351</cite>

    <cite>Why? First of all, our good friend Google does not like us (gambling) affiliates too much, and second, it is always good to cover up your affiliate links, so that no one could fiddle around with them... Right now, if a visitor copies your url, and changes the AffUserID=9111 to a different figure, you can say bye bye to your commission. Not that it will happen often, but once is already way to many times. </cite>

    <cite>Then.. Your text on the home page..

    Who wrote this?? If you ask my honest opinion: It does not make much sense if it should relate to your site.. Although very 'exclusively written' with many very expensive words, it seems not to fit your site as in such.. </cite>

    <cite>Your site says I will be instantly offered the casino that is adequate for my expectations.. After going through all your pages, there is no such option to choose a casino in order to be offered a casino. The only thing I can do is to read the three reviews there.. After reading the whole front page (not many visitors will do, but I did) my expectations were up.. When I then went around searching for where I could choose, relating to bonuses, games or any other options, the expectations changed in to disappointment. If I experience this, other visitors may too.. </cite>

    <cite>Your site writes about mobile casinos getting special attention. There is none to be found? (We might know that the brands you review have mobile games, if you say there is special attention for mobile casino games, I expect to find some.</cite>

    <cite>Your content must make sense. Right now, in my opinion, it doesn't.</cite>

    <cite>The reviews:</cite>

    <cite>If I was you, I would make the images the same width as that your text is. It looks better in my opinion. Perhaps also align the text as justify. It is a personal thing. Me personally, I prefer it that way.. Many others prefer it like you have it now. I think it looks a bit too messy.. But, again, that's personal.</cite>

    <cite>Reading Aladdin's gold review, I am wondering why you mention that in Chicago, old ladies are a gambling every Tuesday evening. Keep the review to the point. The whole story about Michigan Lake and other areas they should not be in this review. I am thinking you hope to rank there in those areas, right? In case you did, who want to read all of this? They will click away before you can blink your eyes. Take out all the fluff and filler, and keep the review on the subject of the casino.</cite>

    <cite>Lucky red casino review on the other hand is very good. So you have an example! Also here though, I would make the images the same size (width) as your text. </cite>

    <cite>Club World review also good. But same counts for image sizes etc.</cite>

    <cite>Why not make the big images 'click-able'? People tend to do that a lot.. Click on big images when they see they can.. Isn't that the ultimate goal? To have your visitors click through to the casinos? Make sure to have the links so that they open up in a new window.</cite>

    <cite>Side bar:

    You have some valuable space left in the side bar. Perhaps a menu, a few banners and your side bar will become functional more as that it is now.</cite>

    <cite>If a visitor lands on the club world casino review, he does not have the option in the side bar to further navigate to other reviews. All he can do is either read the (old) news, or fill in the poll. I would seriously consider making more use out of your side bar.</cite>

    <cite>Once the mouse goes upwards (and it needs to in order to reach your top menu) the movement to further right and click the dreaded X is getting way to close. Allow them to navigate on the sidebar instead. </cite>

    <cite>Code wise:</cite>

    <cite>You might want to check out this: http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=ht...tcasino.com%2F</cite>

    <cite>Although I have seen sites rank with a lot more errors, it is best if you can take them out.</cite>

    <cite>The about page:</cite>

    <cite>I see you have a privacy policy part. Create a page for it. Don't just put it in the about. You also mention in the about page that you cover the legal parts.. You don't, or I was unable to find it. Either remove this, or, have a legal page, discussing it.</cite>

    <cite>Your description about the news: You say that casino news is most important to your visitors.. The latest news I was able to find was dating from Friday, December 5, 2014

    To sum it all up:
    </cite>
    <cite>You've made a very good start, but I believe your logo and your content deserve a better looking theme. </cite>

    <cite>Although your site does have its charms as it looks clean, I would still like to say, and please don't get me wrong... But: Perhaps check out the guys from flytonic.. They do very good and well optimized casino affiliate themes.. And these themes won't cost a fortune either.</cite>

    I hope this info is helpful for you and that you can use it.

    Above all: I wish you all the best of luck with your new site and that it will do extremely well for you.

    Nice looking site, good logo. Great choice in casinos to promote too!

    My thought kind of echo everyone else, content. However I'd prefer a different font that's a little easier on the eye, that just my preference though.

    Adding more sections to the navigation would be decent too and that would allow you to expand upon the content offered in your site.

    You also need to give users of your site a stronger call to action, make them want to click something, show them where to click, lead them to it and use multiple instances of a button or link should the review be a long one. Don't make a customer read the full review and then have to scroll to the top to click. Deliver it to them and stroke their face.

    I think you're on the right track though but I haven't gone through the content itself.

    Well it seems like your slider affects the loading of your page.
    If you are to provide news it should be updated frequently.
    Your home page is boring as well as your site design -- too plain.
    Just a tip, if you know a competitor site then get an idea on it, you'll improve your site.
    Make a much better version of your site's competitor

    Looks clean enough just needs more content really. Not sure on the domain name. Reviews look extensive enough but needs to be more of them.

    Good review Top Online Casinos,

    Only thing I disagree with is the affiliate linking method, and prefer a single, non-indexed page for each link (in a folder restricted by robots text file).

    The reasoning is simple, if you have 100 affiliate links, that is 100 lines in your htaccess that is not needed with the other method, but it povides a similar instance of your affiliate links showing as internal links.
