Here is my first movie site Movie Links where you can watch movies for free.

Wordpress, plugins and my scripts are used for creating site. My scripts add titles, short description, feature image and embed code in wp database. 10-20 minutes is enough for add about 300+ movies. (not included time for setting wordpress, plugins, theme)

I added pop up ads from PopAds and banners from Revenuehits.

I don't have idea for design so I used free theme version and placed widget with ads. Maybe I have to much ads so far but I will decide after reviews. I hope you will test my site: open few posts, try start few movies, check site with adblocker and without it.

Thanks for help.

I got similar coments from other users on other forum and I also remembered advice of older webmaster that in start site should not have ads. I will remove most of it.

Its common to put the search bar on the top right for movie sites, there is where most of your visitors will look first.
Also maybe use smaller thumbnails so you can fit more movies on the screen at the same time?
Better chances of having someone stay.
Also I would reduce the amount of ads on your homepage, and move most of them to the movie pages, so when a person goes to your site they can get adjusted to your site before you bombard them with ads.

Thanks for advice. In next few days, I will remove pop up ads, only left banner for earnings from clicks or CPM. I will add Search per categorys also move Search bar at top. I will see what I can do with tumbnails, maybe I will need to change entire theme.

Oh my goodness! I'm sorry I wanted to review the site but it was impossible. Upon clicking the link I was greeted with 3 pop ups and while trying to click out of them several more appeared. I was asked if I wanted to receive notifications and even after replying no, I was asked again several times. When I tried to exit the site it's like I was held hostage. It's one of those sites that won't let you leave in peace. I shut my system down to finally get rid of it. I know the ads are necessary but the users will have a better experience if the ads are less aggressive and more friendly. I am sorry I couldn't see the video or accomplish anything in order to give a decent review. I will try again after you've made some adjustments. I like the concept of the site.

Regardless of advertising, do you like my script for adding movies into wp database? How much would you pay for such script? Do you think I need to add more features into script?
So far scripts insert titles, short description, feature image , category and iframe code.

I am going to check it from a desktop in a couple hours. I was using a phone so I couldn't experience the site properly with the ads. I'll report as soon as I am done.

Hi @zeljko I tried on the desktop and my security system barred me from opening majority of the links for various reasons. From what I was able to see, the page loads fast (within 3 seconds). Some of the listings on the main page were covered by static ads. It was also difficult to locate the search box. It was somewhat hidden in an unusual spot (for this feature). There was no distinguishing mark (like a search tool icon) to help identify it. I was able to open one link with no problems. I viewed the short video for Shaun the Sheep - it ran smoothly with no glitch. The description for this was clear, well worded and easy to understand. The provided information was just right, not too much, not too little. The tags used were fitting for the movie. It was disappointing that the Watch Online link was not a direct link to seeing the movie, but rather a list of links. It was an extensive and useful list however. The Buy Now feature was helpful because it directed me to several options to choose from in terms of price and ratings. It would help to have a category listing somewhere on the main page for user ease. It could be at the top where it's easily seen or as a side bar. :Thumbsup:

@hsukK Thanks for detail review of my site. You posted about watching Shaun the Sheep. I could not find that movie??? Can you find it again and send me link?

I did some changes on site. I left some ads but removed most annoying, at least I think. Here is screenshot of site and post without adblocker activated. When I clicked only one pop up is opened in new tab and ads from Adhitz network are displayed.

Can you check site now?

@zeljko, when I viewed it yesterday, I accessed a preview of Shaun the Sheep from the third page. I clicked '3' at the bottom of the main page and it was there. It wasn't there now when I just checked. I also tried it in the search box but it wasn't found. Yes, some of the ads disappeared and that particular area with Shaun the Sheep, etc is gone too. I tried the link with Penny Dreadful, Dead Squad and others in this category and they all came up dead - wouldn't open. Actually, I'm getting notifications of 'trojan' so that would probably explain why from my end the links will not be accessible.

I don't know why you could not load movies. Here is screenshots of Penny Dreadful and Dead Squad. Everything looks normal and I manage start movies.

Also, some pop up ads come with OpenLoad player and I can't remove those.

From my point of view website is good..maybe less ads, but it has good potential! Tried some of the movies, worked fine..except for "Juzni Vetar" it won't load :)

Južni Vetar didn't not work since it's not Openload link and so my script didn't detect it correct. Provider iframe is different so I will have to create some script for checking iframes. I removed that movie.

Got it...otherwise really good, i would recommend some kind of listing/categorisation so you can browse through available movies faster..:)

At the beginning ads will not help you because you need to create a community behind your website. After you get some traffic and you website because more popular you can start adding a few ads because people will understand since everywhere you can find ads.
