    As some of you know I've been away from the industry but now ready to launch one of my new sites http://www.canadafreebets.com obviously targeting Canada with mainly sports free bets and welcome bonuses in other niches.
    Whats everyone think? Any errors? Any mistakes? Does it load fine where you are and with your browser? All feedback appreciated

    Also happy for PM's to discuss links

    Hey Aidan,

    Welcome back!

    On first pass - the site loads quick and looks neat and professional. None of the images load if adblocker is enabled, so you might want to use a visitor message or host privately.

    Bodog image is broken.

    Paragraph spaces. You might want to add these in the big blocks of text, just so it is easier to read.

    Cheers!
    Jonathan

    Looks good except when I open it on my phone in chrome all the text and page are really small. Which makes it hard to read.

    Looks good for me, both from chrome PC and mobile.

    Really like the layout, simple and to the point, no need to search the site to find where to play. I would think it should convert well.

    Some of the Get Your Free.. buttons disappear with a few adblockers. I'd say go with /go/whatever or /out/whatever or however you prefer, just being internal links so the adblockers don't hide them.

    Also why not https, since it's a ranking signal and all?

    You mobile paragaph separation is missing. It's one big text on all bonuses. With blockers removing the images it's just one big block of text.

    At around 1k px to 1.2k px your table gets on top. I don't get why it would be removed on smaller screens belows 1k px since it only has 2 columns it can be narrowed to even the smallest screen. That is if you wanna have it on mobiles.

    On mobile your review buttons in the review itself become 2-3-4 buttons on top of each other. These are all minor CSS fixed which can be adjusted with @media only screen properties. Sports has a lot of mobile traffic if not entirely.

    Paragraph spaces for sure stuck together makes me too lazy to read it perhaps a few sharp words then lead into the page, and also use a more sporty font.. something larger

    I would add more content to sidebars, and the articles on homepage seems a bit monotonious to me. Also your site does not have any H1 heading

    Looks nice and clean on my screen. Other than the odd spelling error (ie. Candadian), I see no other issues.

    It's nice seeing my former neighbour, Crosby, in the header image :)

    It looks good.. but I would add spaces and make each offer with 2 paragraphs. This
    may involve changing some of the wording, but it would look better and easier on the eyes.

    It seems like it's not WordPress. Interesting to know on what it was built.
    Have a look at hamburger menu tabs. Think a padding is missing there.
    Add this:
    .nav > li {
    padding-left: 15px;
    }

    Looks nice, though the writing's a little small for my old eyes!

    I wish you luck working with those operators - half of them dodgy at best in my personal opinion.
    (Speaking as a casino only guy - I know sports is a slightly different ball game).

    The site looks nice, one thing though... I would use a space on the right side for a smart sidebar...

    Good luck! looks very nice imo.
    Only one thing that someone already noted, there are several problems with Adblock, most of the images were blocked for me.

    Without a question, you should host banners on your own servers to avoid problems with adblockers.

    You could add a favicon, it would make the site look a bit more professional.
