EDC Knife Reviews Site - REVIEW requested
« on: February 11, 2013, 11:03:17 AM »
Hi Folks,

I would love some quick feedback on my knife review site http://www.edcknifereviews.com

I'll be honest, it's an Amazon affiliate site with Adsense. I have pulled in the Amazon product details and reviews with a Wordpress plugin. I chose this approach for 2 reasons, I would love to make this site an Authority site with my personal knife reviews, YouTube videos, etc, but I have had trouble getting the knife makers to be willing to offer evaluation units. So until I make a few hundred dollars and can begin purchasing a seed inventory of knives for review I am using this approach.

Your thoughts? Anything I'm blatantly missing?

Thank you!!

Ok, realizing that it's still pretty new and I'm not much of a designer myself...

You need a header image or a logo and put the advertisement somewhere else. The area that is supposed to grab my attention looks, well, overlooked and somewhat cheap.

Next, I love the reviews but I'm wondering what will be your hook to build a following. I only read reviews when I'm in the market for something (although I'm always in the market for a knife). Perhaps some stories, testimonials, personal anecdotes scattered in between?  Maybe some links to Youtube videos showing how they're made or some interesting trivia like pictures and stories of ancient blades? 

I like your approach though. It has a lot of potential.
