Here is an independents opinion abut my site.
No offense intended, but other than products you offer nothing of value to visitors. Why should anybody link to you or write about you, or bookmark your site, or even, rank you in a search result?
There are 80 billion things to know about camping / hiking / outdoor / safety / equipment etc. and you've got zero information that I can find. Unless you’re the rock bottom cheapest prices around, you’re not going to get very far with that approach, and I suspect that the search engines sort of see you as an untrusted merchant.
If you want Google to rank you for something, then you need to become an "authority" on something, and, not just offer things for sale. No matter how good your SEO is, no matter how many links you have, you'll never rank for anything unless you regularly generate some authoritative content in a well optimized environment.
You need to develop niche resource pages – perhaps 50 separate lists of campgrounds organized by state, including hours, fees, etc. and then maybe users can leave reviews there too - you'd have 50 pages of great linkbait that adds VALUE . Why wasn't I helped with this?
Well I guess they don't know what they are doing. (this is my opinion) one more thing, talked to tech support needed a little help with my site, they helped but it was pretty cold! not like before

Well got an answer from thrive and they said they would give me one month of free hosting and more help, and I said more help you really haven't helped in a year and a half,(this is only a small part of the conversation, but you can see how it went) but to be asked if I was illiterate and if I could read or write, kind of hard to go back and work with someone that asks you that (have recording to prove it), just need to find out how to get it on the blog, so its not going any where I guess. They also said they would send a lawyer and get me for slander. So if anyone would like to hear the recording tell me how I can put it up, other than putting that on I will be ending are partnership (if that's what you call it) when my monthly hosting is up on 11/18/10 and take it in the BUTT, and won't be saying anything else, because there are alot more people saying it for me.
