Here is my review of jackiesbizblog.com. Jackiesbizblog is a business blog similar to a lot of make money blogs including mine. It contains information about how to make money online. Let me start off by noting some of the positives of this blog. First off, i can see that Jackie makes regular daily posts. This is great way to grow a young blog. Writing frequently keeps the search engines crawling and it puts you in practice of constantly creating content. Another plus is that Jackie placed a big RSS subscription feed button at the top of her blog. This makes it easy for anyone who wishes to subscribe, to subscribe. The content on her blog is solid. She doesn’t try to force posts. She doesn’t try to pretend she knows a topic when she doesn’t. Basically she’s honest with her blog and that’s a big plus in my book. You don’t want to be a phony make money blogger. With that said, i want to make some suggestions. I want to be as honest as possible with this review so bare with me. It might sting a bit Jackie.
The layout. The theme is not that bad, but it isn’t anything special either. The header image is of low quality. I think if you changed the image file a bit, you could probably get a more crisp image without hurting your load time. The image itself is not bad, just a bit grainy. Also, there is way too much dead space around the header. The recent posts, most commented posts, and buy this theme could be shorted. In my humble opinion, i would get rid of some of your widgets and monetization methods. I see that you have adsense on you blog, give it the boot. Most make money blogs don’t make much with adsense. Even the big boys like Darren from problogger admit that adsense doesn’t work on make money blog. Removing adsense and shorting the three columns will create less dead space on your blog.
I see that your trying to sell your theme. On the footer i also see a link to studiojmc. If this theme is one you paid for, i would remove that footer. Makes it seems like a free theme. Also, i’ve learned that selling themes won’t make much money. It’s probably better to give out the theme for free and insert your link on the footer. I would get rid of blogrush and i would try to work on my entrecard dropping. I see that you have your own ad on your entrecard widget. Not a good sign. Work on entrecard a bit and you’ll get free traffic and free ads. Last thing, i see the mybloglog widget on the sidebar. I think blogcatalog is a better blog networking site. It’ll send you more traffic and the members are way more active and friendly. Less spam.
Final analysis. Jackiesbizblog dot com is a young site with potential. It’s obvious that the blog owner is serious about making her blog grow. If she puts in enough hours and doesn’t give up, i can see her making some nice change with her blog. If she keeps networking with other small and medium blogs, she will see her RSS go up and gain some loyal readers. It will not be easy considering that make money blogs are a dime a dozen, but keep changing it up and you’ll see progress.
