    I've had this site for a few years, but I've just had a new structure and design completed and wouldn't mind your feedback and ideas.

    www.mealdeal.com.au

    I'm still working on adding more deals, as it's mainly just been Brisbane based deals up until now.

    And in case anyone needs it explained, this isn't one of those daily deal websites! It's for places that have deals like $10 steaks every Monday etc.

    Historically this has been my best performing site in terms of CTR and CPC, but I need to increase the traffic to start making some decent money. Even at this stage it still makes around $100 per month, which is coming from pretty low traffic numbers.

    PS. If you know of any local deals please feel free to add them! :)

    Cheers

    Sweet site!

    This is the sort of deals site that I like, ie - one you don't have to visit the site everyday to see if there is a deal relevant to you!

    What would be sweet though is a map so you can find places close to you.

    That looks like a very good site that is not only well designed but useful. Great work. I'd agree with the above suggestions as well.

    Thanks guys, I appreciate the feedback.

    Chris - Google maps integration is definitely on the cards for stage 2.

    Paz - I've been thinking the same thing. I know very little about the app development process, but my old mates at Elance should be able to hook me up. :)

    Hey Shane, great concept and well implemented. Certainly think there is lots of potential there. +1 for the App path. iOS/Droid..

    Actually you only really need a mobile friendly site and make the app just a bookmark. To start with anyway...

    Then you can have an app with alerts when you are in a certain area at a certain time by GPS...etc.

    Great site but I think you need more deal meals to make it more appealing.. my site is similar to yours.. it also includes restaurant daily deals
