Finally, the new site which is a partial duplicate of this one is ready! It's simply the same name with a s:
Your username and login are the same, that's only for members who registered before 21st march, the new members will have to create an account there. Same with your tops, there are all there, as well as your salary pages, only what you've posted before 21st march. If for some funny reason you'd like me to delete them from the new site, simply contact me and I'll delete your account on the new site.
You can post there your top lists and income pages. When posting a top list on both sites, try to modify the text a little bit, it never hurts to have a little diversity, you never know what visitors are searching for, a simple change of wording can make a difference.
Anyway, so here are the changes I made so that the sites are not identical:
- I moved all salary pages to the new site, deleted those here, there is a 301 redirection so traffic is not lost, but if you're using the authorized domain feature in your adsense account, remember to add best-reviewers.com or you won't earn from your income pages on the new site.
- I kept the forum only on this site.
- I changed the template and graphics with a blue theme everywhere. I have changed the text of the blocks, so the pages will have lot of differences. The images also are different, always with this dominant blue color.
From now on those two sites are different, content posted won't be the same, not the same activity, and if I add some features on one, they might not be duplicated on the other one. I have another type of content in mind that we can create collectively, but if I get around to doing it, it will be on the new site only for instance. Simply I like the template of the new one better. That's the template I'll use for my next sites since it is very versatile, here I've chosen to make it all blue, but it's easy to make it much more colorful and changes are more easily done there. Also it is a large template, whereas on this site the template width is fixed at 960px and I can't easily modify it not being a master at CSS :-)
Here are the two web traffic tracking, since the salary pages bring a significant amount of traffic, we should see a drop in traffic immediatly on best-reviewer.com and the other getting it instead..

Ok, I need to continue working on the new site since there are many places where I need to add a S, many urls and name of site, in the emails sent to members, etc.. But thank you again AdSense for disabling the ads by mistake on 8th march and not replying before 22nd march, that prompted me to quickly create this new site, now we can use both sites, that's always better than one in case a technical problem arises..
Members and content will be different as time goes by and there will be an exchange of traffic between here and there, so it's all positive.
By the way members, if you see something wrong in the new site, please don't hesitate to speak your mind, thank you!
