yes, thank you. I agree Chefkeem. The site will evolve in time, is this site only 10 months old? A bouncing baby Wizzley? :)

Yup, we went live in the last week of May 2011. Smile

I kind of like that this site is barely a year old, makes me one of the "charter" members :) I would very much like to contribute to this sites growth and dominance. It definitely has the potential to do that, but the first 3 years are usually the growth years so it's hard to convince new members to move content from older sites that are "earning" instantly due to their age, growth, etc... in place (i.e. hp I put a hub up and the next day I got eBay sales), but you'll get there, and when you do you'll dominate the stratosphere :)

I'm going to produce a thread of feedback on the site. I've spent 2 days pushing through everything and I'd like to share my views (all good) as feedback is the cornerstone of success in any business :). I have to say I'm in love with this site already, you guys are doing an amazing job!

One of the things I prefer here is that I do not feel as if the ads. are invading and overwhelming  the writing and image area of the article.

 I know when I arrive on a page that has ads. everywhere;  I leave it faster than I would do otherwise. I find the layouts here less 'cluttered' than some other sites. I am guessing  there is probably a fine balance between maximizing income from ads. and turning away potential readers and customers.

These responses are all dated 2 years ago. Please update me on this. I have a couple of questions.

  • Is Wizzley (as of 2014) being penalized by Google because some of the “white space” or the Intro module (???) in older Wizzles were not been filled in, in the beginning or before the layout changes?
  • Evidently, Wizzley allows one href link in the Intro module, which I have begun to take advantage of. Not sure but I think it might help drive organic traffic to my Wizzles if it's a quality backlink. Is this wishful thinking on my part and am I barking up the tree at an imaginary cat?

Wizzley has not been penalized by Google (or anyone else, for that matter).  Smile

I don't think a link in the intro makes any difference at all with regard to traffic.

Good to know Wizzley hasn't been "penalized". 

That's what I get for circulating stuff and don't know what I'm talking about.  Maybe penalized wasn't the right word.  Something or other about the Google algorithm possibly producing a drop in traffic to the Wizzley site ... (blank and/or question mark) ... might be because of empty white space ... I don't friggin' know.  Whatever!  Skip it!  Embarassed

 

Bummer!  I was really hoping that extra link in the intro module would help bring in traffic or boost ranking. Trying to trick the robot crawler thingy. Wink  (Hey!  I'm a hustler!  Can't blame me for trying!:) Cool

 

* Thanks for the response @chefkeem!  Laughing
