    Please review: www.171english.com

    Hi,I created my own blog about six months ago and I began to use the latest domain since this month. - http://www.171english.com
    Up to now,traffic isn't as much as safisfactory.Since I'm still a newbie in seo,would you please give me some suggestions about its content,its seo,keywords etc?
    By the way,please review the adsense placement and the design as well. Your reviews will be much appreciated.

    I'm afraid to say the first thing that I noticed was how slow it was to load.

    However, I like the look of the site as it is. It's simple enough and the tools stand out clearly with some nice icons. I just find it a little bit too busy, maybe. Plus, using acronyms on a site that is meant for newbies may not be the best idea without a description!! (Or at least wrapping them in the correct tag).

    Your content is too mixed.
    Your domain name is 171english (so English grammar, tout ça, right?) You claim to give advice on SEO and write Travel content, too. This doesn't...work. They don't match. You're trying to reach too broad an audience.
    However, if this became a blog, it'd be alright, because blogs generally have a broad set of content.

    The look and design is lovely and soft. Your header, however, is pixelated and stretched. Can you get a better-quality image? As it is, it looks too much like a free template.

    the template design looks good. the only thing that looks unprofessional is your banner. i suggest you replace it with a custom made one instead of using the template. nice colorway and background too.

    Rowsdower! has accused me of having mental problems, and the administrator allowed it. What a great forum huh?
