Please help me to test my 1st website

Good day fellow affiliates.

I also need your help.I have created a new website recently aswell, just like @ecowastedisposal68.I am by no means an expert in this field and I'm learning as I go along.This is my very 1st website that's functioning and up and running.

I am also in desperate need of feedback on my website.Things like look, functionality and content.
The website do have a registration and login process which need some testing. I have tested it using my email account and my brother's, but I'd really appreciate if you guys can also check it out for me and give me your opinions.You can go straight to the blog posts via the menu if you prefer not to register thought I'd really appreciate it if you do, and let me know if it is working as it should.

My aim is to write about finances and to help people earn and save a few bucks through programs I've used and are still using.Also I'm in the process of creating a page dedicated to Affiliate shopping links, where people can buy things through my links, but I'll let you all know when that page is up.I also need feedback on my 'Work from home' blog post please.

I'll appreciate any help and feedback on improvements and what you all think of my site.Also if you register, I promise I won't misuse your information and if you want I'll immediately delete your profile after you gave me feedback.Just let me know via email or pm if you want your profile deleted.

My website link is
https://inforelay.ga

Please any help will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks

Hi,

Congratulations for taking the step in creating your first affiliate website :)

I have checked your website and you need to fix the look of the site. Right now, it looks incomplete and aesthetically speaking, it does not look appealing.

The first thing that visitors will (always) notice is the look of the site and it is important that you make the site look good and attractive to make your visitors stay longer.

Specifically, fix the header of your website. Make it look professional. You can hire a good graphic artist (in Fiverr for as low as $5) to get a custom header for you. If not, you can create your own using Canva.

The menus too are not properly utilized. Your top menu for example, there are unnecessary buttons there (i think). You got register, login, and account buttons that I am not sure what they are for. Please remove those if not needed or fix them to make it clearer for visitors if you are going to build a community too, where members can register an account.

The Blog section needs to be visible on your homepage as well.

I also get to see your post for the site. It looks good but lacks appeal. Try to get better photos for your post and also the text is a bit off for me. Try to make it bigger or have a bigger spacing perhaps. The article looks dreading for me to read. Make sure that by just looking at it, it sparks interest. Again, try to fix the layout of your content too. There are also too many ad inserts there that you may want to fix.

I hope that helps :)

You broke my heart when you said my website header looks nasty :( ,I spent 5 hours creating my logo, and thought it looks beautiful.

Yes the Register, Login and Account tabs are supposed to be there and also needs a bit of testing. I am still in the process of streamlining the Register and Login process to make it a bit better. I will also add social register and login for users to make it easier to signup.

My plan is, once I get the affiliate page up, I want people to register to be able and view that page, that is why you start at the 'Welcome page'(landing page). Then you have to click the 'Continue to website' tab at the bottom to Register an account to go on and continue viewing the website.

The images I currently have is ones that I took from each of the different websites. They don't really have a wide variety of images I can use. I'll see if there are others though.
When you mention the text - Are you talking about the descriptions below each section?
Should I increase the spacing between words?

I only have 2 ads on my 1st Blog post. 1 At the top and 1 at the bottom.

You have no idea what your input means to me. I am truly extremely grateful.

Thank you so much once again maryt for your in depth reply. I will immediately get to work and let you know on my progress.

God Bless

Hello,

I did not mean to upset you, I am merely providing my insight on how you an improve the website, overall :)

You may look for better images in stock free sites like Pexels. Please be careful when using images from other websites since most of these images are copyright protected.

The text I am referring to is the text and spacing that you have for your articles. :)
