Ideal-Helper Website Update:
  • Sent more mail messages via different list mailers.
    • Page description is missing for this page.
    • Return from Suvidh Marwaha to it’s T2 page link is missing.
    • About Suvidh’s top image, I have removed the previous image and added a screenshot image from the video, hope this is acceptable.
    • Analyze report is not okay, but still ignorable.
  • About the weird width of the comments, I have tried to remove socialize it and other blocks and then rebuilt page with them, but It didn’t work.

    Also removed and rebuilt the C2 form within a tier page to see whether it solves the problem or not, but all in vain.

    Rebuilt a C2 invitation and comment settings but It also didn't work out.

    Also research SBI! forums for a possible solution but couldn't get any helpful post.
  • Submitted following pages to stumbleupon directory:
    • Researched some posts in Virtualassistantforums.com and added to Linkbuilding_Google_Spreadsheet
