    Hi guys,
    SEMrush
    I took the big step, I opened a blog and I applied for AdSense and I was approved! YAY! I need some people to review my website because I didn't start to advertise it yet and I am only creating content at this point. This is my blog:

    http://www.lose-extra-pounds.blogspot.com

    Please note that I created all the content on the blog just today and I am still constructing it so just tell me what it looks like to you so far. Later on, I will start to advertise it to earn from AdSense because I didn't earn anything yet. And also, tell me what you think of the domain 'lose-extra-pounds'. Thank you guys!

    Nice blog ...

    You doesn't need 3 add units on your blog right now ...

    Remove the leargebord ad from the bottom of your blog and try a bit leargertext format add at the top of your site ...

    best of luck ... though i think its not a good idea to put adsense add on a blog or site untill it reach PR 1 or

    enough traffic to it daily ( well its my personal opinion .. )

    I enjoyed looking at the blog, and thanks for the diet tips :).
    I didn't actually notice the links on the right at first (links on the left are much more apparent then links on the right), and maybe some more blog posts? Are you yourself trying to lose any weight? If you are, maybe daily tips on what you're doing. I just didn't see much activity on the front page, so I didn't assume much lol.

    its ok

    you need to get rid of the borders for the ads. add more content with 150-300 word articles, pictures and videos.

    Very good header graphics but your title is too small.
    You obviously need more articles - site looks indeed as though it is under construction.

    Let us know once you made major changes.

    MoritzB - Thanks for the suggestion, I will try to increase the title size although I got no idea how to do that. :p. I will add more articles during the next few days. Thanks for the tip!

    Donp - That's what I will do, I'm still constructing the site but that's my plan.

    jhebodia - Thanks for the tip, I just added a new feature called the Daily Tip and everyday I will try to post a new tip. Thanks!

    Nazbir - Thanks for the suggestion. I just removed the bottom ads and I increased the size of the top ads. Thank you very much for the tip!

    The contents are interesting and it was fast in loading but the theme looks very poor and bit old too.It was very impressive to me.

    I like the look of the website, altough the feeling isnt smooth yet bu the most important thing I saw, is that the advertisements on your website, weren't related to weightloss, I saw advertisements for language courses. So you may want to define keywords to google, or add more content with keywords.
