To start with you did a very great job! I like the concept its easy to navigate through unlike other sites you break your head to find what you want to read plus crazy animation flash etc.

Now for my critics

The first thing I noticed was the picture pixel of the slide show on the first page is blur, am sure you can adjust the pixel sizes to make the pictures look clearer and attractive.

secondly your about us and contact us has a Leave and reply comment section which is very wrong, remove it!

Thirdly the links at the bottom should be on top like an horizontal menu am talking about Gist campus,gossip,entertainment etc.

When visitors come to your site I believe those are the pages they will want to view on your website, like when i visited your site I read all the info on the first page and on the left hand side.

I was like is that all??? Until i scrolled down to see your other links below, most visitors will not bother or think of scrolling down. I strongly suggest you put them on top where the home,contact etc links are.

Then lastly your website name Iconupdate nice name I think you should have a logo there also for it, I myself my forum needs a logo to.

Has for monetizing it I believe you are ripe enough for google adsense  ;D

But every other thing is kool I like the site, infact I have booked marked it.

Hi guys!

Seeing progress like this always make me feel good. Yomi you have really tried. Keep trying harder and getting better.

Prince Nuel and Adeseye have made valid points I will like to add one or two things to.

You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login
secondly your about us and contact us has a Leave and reply comment section which is very wrong, remove it!
I would say having comments in the about us and contact us section is a matter of choice. Some visitors find it easier to leave comments when they want to contact you and you should always aim to make it easy for people and prospective clients to contact you. The most important rule about comments is that you must always endeavour to respond to comments left on your site, whether in the contact us page , about us page or any other page. Always respond in a gentle, respectful and friendly manner no matter how silly or annoying the comment may be. And if its not to your liking, delete it. So to extend Adeseye's advise, I would say allow comments on those pages only if you are sure that you will respond in a timely manner, if not don't allow comments on those pages. On the other hand, if you just dont want to be bothered by irrelevant comments on those pages, you should go the Adeseye way and take out the commenting.

I was like is that all??? Until i scrolled down to see your other links below, most visitors will not bother or think of scrolling down. I strongly suggest you put them on top where the home,contact etc links are.
I totally agree with Adeseye here. You must always aim to make visible as much content as possible on your website via the menu and sidebar widgets. But dont overdo it or put too much thereby making the sidebars too long. See what another student of ours is doing at You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login . You will notice that a lot of his content is visible especially in the sidebars and below the posts.


Now to my own observations:

1. Some of your pictures might be against Google terms. I didn't see many of them but the one of the pastor who ran mad. Thats nudity. Try not to use those types of pictures of nearly naked or naked males and females. (By the way where the hell did you get that mad pastor picture? ;D ;D  ;D Is that the real picture? na wa o)

2. Be careful of your headlines. For example the headline of the Sammy Okposo story seems to suggest that the guy actually specifically said that he supports fornication, when instead what you are really doing is speculating upon the possible implication of his words.

So Instead of saying in definite terms "Sammy Okposo Support Fornication" it would have been better if you had put it up as a question like "Does Sammy Okposo Support Fornication?" and then you write it in such a way that leads the reader to draw his own conclusions. You need to be careful with your stories especially when it involves rumours that you have not personally verified about high profile people so that you don't run into legal trouble. Whenever you post something that is not definite and proven, always use speculative language and always try to quote a source so that if any yawa gas you can always point to the source of your information.

3. Your font size for your posts is too small. You need to make it a bit bigger (maybe as big as the sidebar fonts) so that it is easier to read. If your theme does not have an option to change the font then you may have to dig into the css files to do this. Let me know if you need help with that.

4. You need to try and make your posts longer. Always aim for between 250 to 750 words. Will help you with your AdSense and SEO.

5. Your post titles (I mean the actual HTML title) why are they single words? For example, the mad pastor post shows just "Madness" as the page's HTML title. Do you enter that manually via All in One SEO pack? If yes then you shouldnt. Ideally your title should be exactly what the headline is. For example the title of the mad pastor page should be Pastor Runs Mad While Praying For Mad Man – Nigerian Tribune  and not just Madness

6. And finally, how far with your AdSense application? You know you may not be able to get approval while AdDynamo is on the site
Leave it for God, don't worry yourself. Leave it for God, don't cry no more.

Dont worry, the Adsense approval will come. Dont use any of those AdSense partner websites, we later found out that they always ban the accounts few days or weeks after approval, dont know why. Just try applying directly. When next you apply, if it is denied lets see the email that was sent to you.

The guy that has the site I mentioned (naijaparrot.com) applied repeatedly for close to six months while continually updating. They finally approved it for him some weeks ago. Don't be discouraged. Just remove the addynamo and apply again and let me know what they say
