    Guard Tunnel gets a makeover! Please Review!

    Just in time for the new year, Guard Tunnel 2.0 has been released! And a long with it, a surplus of new features!

    Compared to the old theme, in Guard Tunnel 2.0

    - the new theme has ALL of the information that the old theme had PLUS more.
    - All of the content is compacted and organized in a way that the page is nowhere near as long.
    - The proxy URL form has been brought above the content, so you can get right to browsing.
    - There are half as many ads!

    In addition, the proxified pages have been completely changed to provide a more pleasing and professional look.

    But that's not all! Guard Tunnel is proud to announce it's new blog! Updates, information, and more will be announced here, and users can discuss and share ideas!

    -------------------------

    And that is the end of my advertising. I am looking for honest reviews on the template, placement of ads, blog, etc. Thanks

    Everything looks good, maybe you should increase the length of the latest new box so the space under the twitter bird is gone.

    Also, you don't have much ads compared to your previous theme, have your earnings decreased ?

    I am leaving that there for now because the news box will increase as I add in more news. If it still takes up too little space, I may add in little things like advertisements or maybe a poll box.

    It's too early to say, at the end of January I'll make a comparison.

    The site looks good. I think that it could use one more ad block. Also, you have linked Terms of Service and Privacy Policy twice. I would remove the TOS and privacy from the center of the page and use the space for something else.

    Maybe you should add some "popular sites" links... such as facebook etc... so they don't have to type it in themselves. Also you might want a add a bookmark button. Maybe an add this button

    Haha, no AddThis button. I will consider a bookmark button.

    I was also thinking, maybe a button to share on Facebook/MySpace/Twitter? (And should I give it the option of using our proxy?)

    Using social media to promote the site to the Facebook/MySpace crowd is a plus.
