    Looking for feedback prior to launch

    I am currently working on a redesign of a site of mine and would like some feedback on the design prior to having it integrated into the script



    Aside from the ad colors as those are just fillers they wont be that color. Just wonder if it needs some other things added or edited.


    Here it is edited with the ads should look when completed

    I think it looks great, but skyscraper and banner ads perform much worse than rectangle and square ads.

    Just have no clue what to use in place of those. Might slide the newsletter box up and then add a 250x250 though I am limited as to what I can add I need a certain width on the left side so everything fits. as the right column are a total of 285 pixels suppose I can make a 285 box then add a 250x250 in the box to make it all line up.

    What do you think would be a worth while affiliate 125x125 that could be added to fill the void at the bottom.


    here is another version with different ads



    would it be better to ditch the affiliate 125's for another 250x250 or?

    Not quite what I think Will was meaning in terms of ad placement. Keep the first skycraper -- and wrap your text around a 250x250. Get rid of the second, and plonk your proxy newsletter (or anything else, really) in it's place.

    As for the design, it is fairly basic but if it does what it's suppose to -- excellent.

    As a further possibility for Will's next proxy topsite script revision, he could add the speed-o-meter. I'm sure that that would be a feature that users would return for.

    The best performing AdSense block is the 336x280. 250x250 is the second best.

    But the 336x280 is really quite difficult to place in complex designs, if you are aiming to cater for all screen resolution sizes.

    Make sure you add a custom 404 page. I snooped around and got the host gator page.

    I am in need of some proxy owners to test out the new script please.

    Items I need looked at are

    Spelling, layout, submission, email

    None of the ads are live they are only images.

    Features new version has is blocking of any domain extensions current ones are
    co.cc, tk, com.sa, co.nr, uni.cc, ru, tl.my, gi.la, en.am

    sub domains are blocked also

    auto approval
    backlink check
    status check
    proxy location
    auto removal of domains if the domain goes offline or backlink is not found

    has a speed rating system which in the scaling system is set to increments of .15

    friendly urls system to lay nice with the engines.
    A hold page so when a proxy is selected you get a redirect page. Currently set for 3 seconds.

    Categories on the right will only show if proxies are listed in that category.


    at the moment only 3 pages dont have any real content as I dont have enough to fill them atm

    So please give it a test run using this link let me know what you find and what you think
