First i commend you for going after not only one of the most competitive niches but also a very competitive clickbank product. When I was starting out I did not have the gumption to do that, so a big kudos goes out to you on that. You have a good Domain name and good layout.
One of the first things I do when looking at a site is try to figure out how the owner is promoting the site and what is the owner trying to get the visitor to do. If I came across your site doing research I would automatically assume this was an "adsence site" meaning the goal was to get the visitor to click a Google Ad as soon as possible and make you, the owner, a few cents.
But after reading your post I have to assume your main goal is to get the visitor over to truthaboutabs.com with your hoplink so you can make a commission. If that is what you trying to do, I would suggest making the adsence less obvious or loss them all together. Even if they are not clicking on the Ads the predominance of the ads can turn off some visitors giving you a high bounce rate.
STOP GIVING TRUTHABOUTABS.COM TRAFFIC YOU WILL NOT GET PAID FOR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Almost all of your above the fold links are sending truthaboutabs.com traffic WITHOUT YOUR AFFILIATE ID!!!!!!!! See screen shot.
I am not sure how you are promoting the site if you are using PPC then these links can be killing your campaigns. If you are trying to rank on search engines you need to rewrite the articles so you don't suffer the duplicate content penalty.
Since you are hosting on Godaddy, I would do a wordpress install on that domain and start blogging on your site maybe in addition to blogspot.com. This way you are putting fresh and unique content on your site and not just creating content for Google through blogspot.com
To help with newsletter subscriptions you might want to try an exit script that will put your newsletter offer right in someone face with a really good pitch on the pop.
I hope this helps and look forward to hearing back from you,
