Below are some of the blogs that we have reviewed before as we compare them once again between the date we have made the review and today. We will bring up the previous ratings as well as their before and after entrecard ads.

The following are the 10 blogs for v.1: Holy Cuteness, Android's Dungeon, Down On Our Luck , The Diet Pulpit, Entrecard Favorites, Mind Relaxing Ideas, Free XML Blogger Templates, Michael Aulia's Blog, Jericho Monster, and Education Connection.

Read on to see their before and after reviews...

1. Holy Cuteness (March 9, 2008)

SITE RATINGS:

  • Layout - 7 ---> 5
  • Content - 8
  • Coherence - 9
  • Reach - 7 ---> 8
  • Readability - 8
  • Overall Rating - 7.8 ---> 7.6

Pretty much the same blog as it was before although I now recommend some fixing of the layout and the widgets. Improvement in reach as well.

2. Android's Dungeon (March 9, 2008)

Last post on this blog is April 9... seems like the Android had been quite busy. Same image ad on Entrecard as well.

SITE RATINGS:
  • Layout - 8 ---> 9
  • Content - 7 ---> 9
  • Coherence - 7 ---> 8
  • Reach - 9 ---> 10
  • Readability - 9 ---> 10
  • Overall Rating - 8 ---> 9.2

3. Down On Our Luck (March 9, 2008)

SITE RATINGS:
  • Layout - 7 ---> 7
  • Content - 8 ---> 8
  • Coherence - 5 ---> 7
  • Reach - 7 ---> 8
  • Readability - 7 ---> 7
  • Overall Rating - 6.8 ---> 7.4

Not much of a change on this blog. The title of the posts tend to be clutter and makes it hard to read. Although I may say it is more coherent now and the Reach had improved.

4. The Diet Pulpit (March 9, 2008)

SITE RATINGS:
  • Layout - 8
  • Content - 8
  • Coherence - 8
  • Reach - 9 ---> 10
  • Readability - 8
  • Overall Rating - 8.2 ---> 8.4

Not much of a change as well for this blog except for the obvious increase in ALexa Ranking. The blog is now ranked 44,820. I have one recommendation though and that is to justify posts so that it will be more readable.

5. Entrecard Favorites (March 9, 2008)

SITE RATINGS:
  • Layout - 5 ---> 7
  • Content - 8
  • Coherence - 10
  • Reach - 8 ---> 9
  • Readability - 8 ---> 10
  • Overall Rating - 7.8 ---> 8.8

The placeholder at the bottom still exist but I see great improvement in layout, reach and readability. Great work!

6. Mind Relaxing Ideas (March 9, 2008)

SITE RATINGS:
  • Layout - 8 ---> 10
  • Content - 10
  • Coherence - 8 ---> 9
  • Reach - 7 ---> 8
  • Readability - 7 ---> 10
  • Overall Rating - 8 ---> 9.4

Great improvement when it comes to layout and readability. The new template had work positively for this blog.

7. Free XML Blogger Templates (March 12, 2008)

SITE RATINGS:
  • Layout - 9 ---> 6
  • Content - 10
  • Coherence - 10
  • Reach - 8 ---> 5
  • Readability - 8 ---> 6
  • Overall Rating - 9 ---> 7.4

I hate to give down ratings to those which I do a review for but constructively I may say that this blogs template needs some reconstruction. The very narrow post area makes the readability suffer. The attention is given more to the widgets than the site content. As a result you can see that its ranking has also suffered.

8. Michael Aulia's Blog (March 12, 2008)

SITE RATINGS:
  • Layout - 8
  • Content - 8
  • Coherence - 8
  • Reach - 9
  • Readability - 8 ---> 10
  • Overall Rating - 8.2 ---> 8.6

I can see that the readability of articles had been improved however I have some concerned with the layout and the sidebars because it seems to be neglected somewhat.

9. Jericho Monster (March 12, 2008)

SITE RATINGS:
  • Layout - 5
  • Content - 8
  • Coherence - 8
  • Reach - 8 ---> 9
  • Readability - 6
  • Overall Rating - 7 ---> 7.2

Jericho had been recalled and canceled and for the continuity of the blog the author had decided to rename it as "The Monster - The Future of Television... Now!" Well great idea to continue the blog and we hope to see more of what you write.

10. Education Connection (March 13, 2008)

SITE RATINGS:
  • Layout - 9 ---> 7
  • Content - 10 ---> 8
  • Coherence - 10
  • Reach - 3 ---> 5
  • Readability - 9
  • Overall Rating - 8.2 --->7.8
It seems that the layout had suffered this time and the content seems to be less than when I last reviewed it ... so again this is another down rating. The site had also left Entrecard.
