    I have some things that I notice when browsing your site.

    • Your links don't open in a new page, so people leave your site when they click a link, I would use taget blank
    • In your casino lists, a-z, no deposit etc. a lot of logo's have a different sizes, looks messy, try to make them all the same size, a nice common sizes is 120x60
    • Your news items are very short, try making them longer, give more informtion about the casino in general. They don't all have to be huge, but at least more than you have now
    • Maybe you would also want to add some banners, or maybe a top 10 with links on the homepage above the fold. Now it's only text and you might miss some clicks now
    Just trying to help, don't take it personally ok ;-)

    Keep it up!

    Naaa thats cool, i appreciate your honest feedback, i will be sorting the banners out in the sidebars soon to make them all the right size, but its a pain cos some of the affiliates dont always have the 200X200 ones, they fit nicely in my sidebars the 200-200 ones, so some i had to pick the 250-250, but will work something out.

    And yes someone else told me that about the links, i will sort those out too, thanks for reminding me, i forgot to do them lol,

    And the casino a-z page banners i will look at too, thanks for the feedback, appreciate it :)

    But one question i wanted to ask was, but what do you think of the overall look of it ??, and the directory itself, that directory and rating system was handbuilt just for our site, it is totally unique just for us :)

    I don't like to critique other webmaster's sites, as we all have our own style, but I do usually comment on WHO you are working with if you are a newbie affiliate.

    So I have to warn you to be VERY careful with 888 and Affiliates United - IMHO they are "more than a bit dodgy".
    Also I strongly advise to to dump Bet Victor before they dump YOU! (They are the only program ever to dump me - for not meeting their ridiculous quotas).
    All the others look OK to me.

    Welcome to the forum! ;)

    Hi, thanks for the heads up, KasinoKing, i will certainly keep a close eye on them then, if they do drop me, i suppose there isnt much we can do, i will of course mention it in this forum if they do though.

    The one rule I have learned that is far and away the most important thing, much more important than the mascot or fancy graphics is content, content content.

    You are working hard on getting people to visit your site... what do you think they will do when they get there?

    Thanks oracle, but, we have content on our site, and we are adding more every day. it is very hard to find good content, and because its soo early on, we need to get feedback from people who join our forum, so we know what market is more inclined to be using our site, so we can target more for that market rather than trying to target all of them at the same time.

    We are trying to get an idea of what visitors we already get and then target those and put content that is directing towards them. :)

    It is still soo early, only launched the site a week ago. i think we have done pretty well this first week too.

    I only hope I can keep up with your enthusiasm! I like your mascot a lot, that was a really good idea.

    Thank you Guard Dog, I take it this is your forum?

    @xMikeRoss - yes good idea too, it is very important when making a new company or website, to make a brand and or mascot, because if the site does take off, then we actually got something people might buy in the future, and with a brand and mascot, it makes the company 10 times more buy-able. :)

    But our brand/mascot will never be for sale ever hahaha. :)

    What is Microsoft's mascot?:) I do like it, would be careful not to overuse it. Would it be expensive to have something like that designed from scratch?
