  1. Hi everyone. Can someone review my site please. I really need honest review and how to make it better - page loading, SEO and etc.

    hi freestuffonline,

    Initial impressions of your site are that it is generally very good visually and in its ease of use in finding the information you want.

    Perhaps one improvement could be when you hover your mouse over the top menu bar a further drop down menu could appear categorising items within that section. For example, if you were to hover your mouse over the Freeware category sub-categories could appear listing further categories of freeware such as games, music, games, security etc. I suggest this because when I use sites such as yours I usually have an idea in my head as to what Im looking for and want to get to the relevant section as quick as possible - if I have to 'faf' around I tend to just exit the website and find somewhere else.

    I understand your site is new and probably still in development but it lacks a depth of content - but makes up in part with the range of content it will offer e.g. freeware, apps (excellent section as apps are currently a perfect example of a rip-off market), free trial etc.

    Not sure where your located (Britain or US?) but a site which is extremely popular in the UK is Money Saving Expert: Consumer Revenge - Credit Cards, Shopping, Bank Charges, Cheap Flights and more which has general money advice but lists current free offers from retailers, links to vouchers in restaurants etc. It is an extremely popular website with all ages and an excellent source of information for free stuff online. What it fails on is its websites layout, with all the information being very cluttered and sometimes hard to navigate. Perhaps you could draw some inspiration from the websites plus and negative points (if you aren't familiar with it already).

    Hope some of that helps. You have a really good site (and conception) there!!!!

    All the best,

    I should just say that I just clicked on some of your links on your site and the offers 'on offer' seem a bit suspect. For example, the offer of free entry to win two tickets to the opening day of Wimbledon - the link takes you to the offer where to enter you are required to PURCHASE something beforehand....not really a freebie. Id rather que up for a couple of hours when Wimbledon opens to get some cheap tickets to be honest

    SEO (search engine optimization)
    You need to understand what Google suggests for title and description
    of your website:
    Changing your site's title and description in search results - Webmaster Tools Help
    Then use a keyword suggestion tool:
    SEO Tools, Internet Tools and Webmaster Tools at Self SEO
    FREE Keyword Suggestion Tool, Keyword Popularity Check Tool, Research
    Free Search Term Suggestion Tool by KeywordDiscovery.com
    You description and keywords
    (no title???)

    <meta name="keywords" content="Freebies,Website, Freebies Website,
    free,website,templates,forum,web,layouts,webdesign" />

    <meta name="description" content="Hi everyone. Can someone review my
    site please. I really need honest review and how to make it better -
    page loading, SEO and etc. boundlessfreebies.co" />
    You should check other similar sites to get ideas and/or keywords and
    key phrases.
    By the way - you need to reword your description - that is not your
    websites description.
    hope this helps

    I looked at your freeware.
    You may want to list them under categories such as:

    Word Processors ... Presentations ... Desktop Publishing
    DataBases ... Design & Photo ... AntiVirus, AntiSpyware
    Spreadsheets ... Utilities & Drivers ... Network Tools

    or similar. Listing under categories helps organize them and makes it easier
    for visitors to find what they are looking for.
    If you get a lot, then you can add subcategories also.
    hope this helps
  6. Thanks everyone. I appreciate your inputs.

    using google to check page position for boundless freebies

    keyword: boundless freebies
    Website's top order is 77 and has 1 result(s).

    keyword: freebies
    Website has no result for this keyword !
    checking up to 400 (not in the first 400 positions)
    Note: page position on Google is very dependant on keywords.
    You look for position using certain keywords.
    You may want to check or change your keywords for results.
    Use a keyword suggestion tool such as:

    Free Keyword Suggestion Tool - Keyword popularity Tool

    FREE Keyword Suggestion Tool, Keyword Popularity Check Tool, Research

    Free Search Term Suggestion Tool by KeywordDiscovery.com
    I use several as the results are different
    then use your best judgement
    hope this helps

    I like your website. From the colors to everything. The homepage is very organized. But it is lacking one thing - something that stands out the minute I see your website. Maybe an image slider with your top freebies would be nice. And some of the text is bugging me a little bit - some is all capitalized or all undercase, and IMO that's an easy visual appealing fix you could make. Other than that, your content is great and the information is relevant to free stuff!

    Ok, to start off, it took me about 15 seconds to load the website :S I don't know if that's just me or if its the same for everybody else. Second, the first thought that came to my mind when I saw the site was : "hmm, something doesn't seem right here, I'd better be careful". But after that, It was good, I like the layout, well organized. I would give it a 7.5/10

    I like it, although the Colors don't match 100% with the background etc... Maybe switch it up a little? Looks Nice.

    I like your website! I like the black and red (Its my favorite color) I like when you hover over the links it disappears and you can see the background.
    I also like the website because its user friendly. Everythings like right there you cant miss anything! Good job

    hi nice site, but some slider at top of your page will give some sort of live look. something like this ( flash) or this (jquery) , both are free.

    Hi there,

    I generally like the layout of the site and found it easy to navigate. I like the colour scheme and think the sites aesthetically pleasing.

    However, I found it took a while to load witch would put me off

    make the gray paragraph fonts a little darker, web designers think this is a very good design style but some readers find this harder to read.

    I really liked your site, in fact I dl'd a couple of things while I was looking round. Maybe catagorise things a bit more but a minor point.

    I agree, categorize the site more (spelling US categorize, UK categorise).
  18. Thanks buddy. I will improve it from time to time. Hopefully you'll like the free stuff.
  19. Thanks buddy for your input. I want to create a slider but I think it will make the site loading quite slow.

  20. Thanks buddy , the slider looks really nice. I think a slider will make the site loading quite slow, that's why I don't want to load any.
