This is something new for me. A different niche then the normal.
What are your thoughts on my new site?
Las Vegas Resorts
Thanks in Advance.
The header and the color schemes look good!
The suggestions that I have have are to:
1. Customize the sidebar to list your posts
Using the wp_get_archives() template tag, you can customize this list in a variety of ways. Let's say you want to list the last 15 posts you've written by their title. Replace the type=monthly as follows:
2. Add a adsense link unit to your footerCode:<?php wp_get_archives('type=postbypost&limit=15'); ?>
Nice site! The design suited well with your niche. It would be nice if you left align the content other than justify alignment, and use little more space between the lines. Try adding more components to the right, cause it seemed big empty space out there when I scrolled down a little.
Unless there is a code that allows for more on the ft page and not on the single page. This I am not aware of but will look.
Was think of making the font bigger and adding more space. Now you confirmed that fact. Thanks

The color looks great!
Just my personal opinion for your reference:
You could probably change the rounded edges around the posts and widgets to make it look more classy.
Just my two cents.

Nice site Sami4u,
When Oscar will build the Mob museum http://www.themobmuseum.org/ I am sure you will be happy to talk about it on your site
This is great to have good time at Las Vegas, the shows are fantastic.
Good luck with your project.
The site has a lot of good content. I've noticed though that the pages aren't cached. Have you burned the feed at feedburner and added the site to technocrati.
Another suggestion is to increase the monetization of the site. Perhaps add a Las Vegas hotel affiliate and create a page to promote it as well as some promotional blog posts on deals.
Here's some affliates that you can look into
MGM MIRAGE Affiliates
Wynn Las Vegas Affiliate Program - 5 Star Hotel, Show Tickets & Travel
Another way to further monetize the site is to add adsense link units. You are allowed to use three in addition to 3 regular adsense ads. A good place for a link unit is above the footer, on the top of the page and a horizontal link unit in the side bar.

I have NO idea what you are talking about? burned the feed?
The rest I am way ahead of you on. Only one person here and you know how many sites I am running and at work only so many hrs in a day.
As Far as adding extra ads. I DO wish to earn money. But those ads make the site look to cheap like a classified rag trow away IMO. Is there a way to tell adsense to run only banner ads/picture ads in those spots? Referring to the ads I already have on the site. Then adding link ads won't look so cheap.
