    My teenage son Luke created this website using XSitePro.

    www.tewantin.com.au

    He has just given it a bit of a tidy up - changing some buttons and adding a Facebook "like" and a "Tweet". Also put a Google map on, and I gave him some fresh content for home page.

    I know it's not a glamorous Geo template - but it earns a little Adsense each week. And it is a great learning curve for him.

    Comments and suggestions please? Perhaps a FB like as well? :)

    comment: the colour scheme of the ads are way too bright
    suggestion: ...why not try open air style plus less is more, loose the left hand side one

    Cheers

    Nice clean looking site Ned! Does the job nicely

    Perhaps switch the AdSense background color to white and remove the border to see if that gets you some more clicks. ;)

    still remember catching a good size brim with just a piece of bread, happy to agree with all previous comments , unsure if the top photo does this beautiful place , anyhows gave you a like

    i wonder if the site can be wider ? seems to be a a lot of wasted space , there may be a good reason for this so please do excuse my ignorance .... just wondering

    Yes, please explain. I've been using AdSense for years.

    I have read about cases where the publisher had displayed Google ads way too confusing/similar to the site links and got banned.

    Therefore I prefer to play safe with AdSense and stick to a clear different color from the other links.
