firstly, you have our sympathy, we're sort of in the same boat.
Your sites are pleasing to the eye, and we can see the work you've put in so don't want to be too brutal.
But there were quite a few things we noticed that might put buyers off.
There are a lot less than 30 articles, they look as if they tend to be on the short side too.
The text is rather blocky, not broken up by headings, or lists. We were told to have no more than 2-3 sentences before breaking it, as people don't want to read large blocks of text.
The graphics are not in the recommended place, and very few have a call to action in them. In the menopause site there aren't any graphics yet, and the links are either non-existent or not working.
Generally the links tend to be below the fold and not large enough in font size.
Your review articles are at the bottom of the sidebar instead of the top on the hemorroids site, and not there yet on the menopause site, which has no monetization on the home page.
And just to echo the others the adsense is distracting and detracting, it has to go!
Don't let it get you down, I know it's hard when sales are so hard to come by but I still believe we're in the right place to learn :-)
And if you'd like to run a critical eye over our site please do, we're still tweaking and would appreciate the input.
Best Regards, J & J
