Yep, well a pligg site.

But in what way should I take more time.

The idea is to get feedback now before I start hacking everything up lol

Thanks!

Everything is very basic and doesn't offer anything unique what isn't there yet. If you ask me you are basically asking for ideas instead of feedback..

cool thanks for the feedback.

I want to focus more on the backend and keep the design simple and fast (kind of like google). but I also don't want it to be too boring.

I think I will see about adding video and maybe a top story with a bigger image in it.

I also want to make sure it's easy to read and comfortable.

Your site has pr 1, and medium traffic. I think it looks like other pliggs, so you don't have to change anything accept for putting ads into your page...

The thing is most people don't know what pligg is, my focus is not to be different then other pliggs just to be what people would like to see when getting the news each day.

Although I would like to be different in concept a little. But still staying simple.

Thanks!

The site looks very simple. and seems to be built on WP.
having said that , there is potential. Instead of having a login ..try to use the facebook graph API.
Simple is good, too simple is only good if you are google.... I would do a little more to make it easier on the eye...you know users like to have a pleasant layout. it is one of the reasons why facebook took over myspace
good luck

All i can say is your domain name doesn't suit your website.

The site should be SEO or pagerank related.

I don't want to be negative here, but what is the unique contribution of your site? Why would users want to use you instead of the popular and already established brands? I know it would be awesome to be able to invent another digg, or facebook, or google - but they have already been done. You need new functionality in order for your effort to make sense.

In terms of looks, the logo is a bit drab and uninspired frankly, I'd like to see it a bit jazzed up. Otherwise it does look nice and clean and friendly.

I appreciate the concepts! There Are many types of websites like this but to my defense there is also many types of bars and resteraunts, and cleaners. Most people need news so it's a commodity which means there is never too much of it. It is just really heard to compete. Also the top site digg has lost over half it's traffic from selling out to sponsors, cheating, and lying. Redditt the next biggest is for little kids.

Thee really isn't a mature news resource like these sites that is really popular. So I think there is a clear goal.

As for the design I want it to be fast and simple, think of google, drudge report, or facebook. More function less flash. But I know it needs help and would love more ideas on how to made the design better.

Of course all of this is arguable and I really appreciate feedback. It would be nice though people explained a little more about why they feel a certain way. And ideas about what to do to it to make it better.

As for the name it is perfect for a SEO site I know this, I bought it for this reason years ago lol. I made the site a tool for ranking news related web pages and websites in general, so I think it fits. Also SEO I think is really played out, every third world country has about 20k services for this but News for some reason still seems opportunistic.

I tested the site :

- Register - maybe include facebook connect to make it easier to register

- Submit story - could be made easier by pre-filling some of the fields using the meta data ?

In description field it says "tags allowed: Story_Content_Tags_To_Allow_Normal "
I didn't get that.

Best of luck with the project.

I like the simple design but maybe add a little color. News does not go into detail.
