On to the review, is a website on technology, gadgets, Web 2.0 and much more – it covers quite a sizeable range of topics, including one of my favorite topics on making money and even topics related to health! With the breadth of topics, you’ll probably be able to find something down there which interests you. It is commendable that there is a relatively high frequency of postings on a myriad range of topics. A caveat is that the broad range of topics may come across as not very focused and may also make it difficult for the author of the site to build depth for each category.

The website has a nice, “designy” kind of look and is very well monetized with its three-column layout and lots of ads. One note of caution here, not everyone likes a site full of ads so one thing I could suggest for improvement is to reduce the clutter somewhat to avoid what I call “visual overload” on the part of visitors.

Of course, the making money section is one which greatly interests me. Narendra has created an interesting wordpress plugin called the Customized Random Top Ads Plugin which you can use to keep 6 different google products or other referral links at the top of your blog and these are rotated randomly when the page is loaded or when the visitor clicks on the “Next Tip” link at the top. He’s also got an article with some good tips on how to improve the link popularity of your site. Again, to be brutally honest, while I enjoyed the posts in this category, the section is crying out for more articles and in order to become a “sticky” website for me, I think there needs to be a reduction in scope while improving the depth of certain categories.

Thanks Narendra for submitting your contest to me! Go give him some support!
