I want to say thanks to all of you for answering the poll (and for your comments). You gave me a lot of indications for the final redesign. More or less this is what I am going to do:
1) Remove the top deal bar (maybe add it at the bottom of the website and make it look much nicer). Finally you don’t need to scroll to see the latest post!
2) Remove completely the left sidebar. This should help you to avoid the tunnel vision
3) On the right sidebar I will move the google AD to the bottom.
4) I will place very small advertising banners between the post. This will also help to divide the different posts.
5) I was told some of you dislike deal posts in the main content. Maybe I will add a small text deal banner in a fixed position between the first and second post. If you have a better idea let me know.
Sorry if I didn’t manage do serve you with a decent design. I am good in finding rumors not so good in layout understanding
Anyway the new website will be content oriented and advertising should only be placed where it makes sense fo you.
I really really really hope I can manage it to make you happy!
For any questions contact me ok? You know my email address.
