I don't know what to review. It looks like a plain-Jane WP Blog, looking like it's pretty much a straight install with little to no customizing. Am I missing something here?

I agree with you. It's just like a plain free wordpress blog. To candyman, I think you need some customization to make it interactive.

Yes, it is a plain WordPress blog. I want a simple design. What about the articles? Is it good?

I can clearly see that English isn't your first language as there are significant issues pertaining to grammar and sentence structure. So, I stopped reading after the first couple of sentences in two different articles.

I'll offer you this one big piece of advice: If your target is an English speaking audience, you are not going to do well. If you want to do well, you will have to hire a "good" content writer - one that can translate from your language, to English.

Look - my first language is English, and for some clients, I still sometimes hire a content writer for grammar, sentence structure and spelling.

got to agree. nothing good about the site. it's generic nothing. this is a web design lobby and you post no design and say that's what you want. 0/10

hmmmm

1 big mistake is you not updating your plugins. Your WordPress SEO plugin is on the previous version, please upgrade it before another update rolls out. FYI, check your plugins page once a day to update any plugins that need to be updated. Yesterday I had 2 plugins that got updated because of a security loophole in them.

Your theme is just not that good but if you make a few changes it could be a little better. Your top menu bar, you have 2 menu links in it. Complete waste of space in that bar right now. I don't see an about page so I have no clue what the blog is supposed to be about or a history of the blog owner. Add a link to your about page in the menu bar for starters.

Read the blog post below on how to write a quality about page because I think you don't know why blogs need them. https://amylynnandrews.com/how-to-write-an-about-page/

You are showing way to many blog pages on the homepage. 5-7 is more then enough for the typical blog owner. Remove the Archive widget in the side bar, it's pointless to have it shown in public.

Create a real logo to show that you are for real with your blog. This blog link below is helpful to read about logo's importance. http://blog.logomyway.com/logo-branding-organization/

I click on the SEO category in the sidebar and the category page just has the word "SEO" then empty space next to it. Try writing 2 sentence for the SEO category description.

The first blog post I clicked on didn't have comments enabled. That's a bad thing for sure and the quality in your articles needs to be better. If you write about the SEO industry it better be a long quality article with links to resources, quotes from famous people in the SEO industry...etc

You don't come off as an SEO expert but prolly read someone else's blog and reword there information.

You need to think hard about your blog because it looks like it took you 20 minutes to set up the theme and put content on it. I think you need this guide below. http://www.shoutmeloud.com/wordpress-guide

It took months to write the contents in the blog. Thanks for your valuable suggestions.

Unfortunately, I have to agree with most of the opinions expressed here.

I also believe in keeping things simple, but this might be a bit tooooo simple. Spend a little time checking out some other themes and maybe find something with just a bit of window dressing and better color choices to make your blog more appealing. And you have really got to do something about your company logo. Right now it really gets lost on the page.

Since English is not your primary language and if you are trying to reach English speaking customers you really should invest in get your content translated with proper structure and grammar. You may have spent months writing the content, but there is nothing more frustrating to a potential English speaking customer than reading something and then having to try to figure out exactly what you are trying to say.

Your idea seems like a sound one, but now you need to clean it up and dress it up a bit. Nobody wants to dance with the plain-jane girl when there are so many prettier girls begging for attention.

Good luck . . .

I think you might want to stick with content, and hire a professional to do the blog design. Right now it looks unfinished. And the huge Google Adsense ads in the header don't really add a lot of credibility.

That is a pretty simple blog.
However, You should definitely add a Logo to the site, at least.
Also, Do something about the sidebar. Too short, Too empty!

Last, Something on the top menu would be great, apart from Home & Contact.
Everything else looks upto the mark.

Should add something e.g. a banner to the top of the site.
The feature that click on banner below the HOME | CONTACT seem useless.
The animation when mouse over the feature images should be changed, the papercraft icon on the animation is meaningless

This is not a quality website review and is not helping at all. Did you read the sticky thread in this section on how to write a quality website review?

If you don't like something, explain what you don't like and what you would do to fix it. We are here to help..

Sure Snakeair,

I don't like that:
Website navigation bar: need to be more informative for ex. add categories.
Website poor content: About 72 results only indexed in the google search.
Only 12 Unique backlinks: Read more about the backlinking tactics and strategies and always use White or Gray hat seo.
I like:
the website is running fast,
the content word count is fair, but I suggest to increase it .

Website is okay but just okay. The scroll to top button works (imo) bit slow.
