Default OK getting started again!

Hi Eric / Stefan,
Ok im back on datafeedr now, have a budget and damn am I going to make it work this time!?

So 2 sites I want to ask you about, if you dont mind. &
Upto recently this was gettin over 1k hits a month, then it just fell off a cliff, im not overly bothered because ive been planning a overhaul on this for a while anyhow.

Basically, on here I have category pages with images/click buttons leading to the comparison page but Ive limited the writing which is pulled from datafeedr to avoid the duplicate issue.

Also I have had individual articles written on each model and put a datafeedr link displaying the comparison price section on each one.

Now this one is still getting about 600 hits per month, bear in mind ive not done anything with these 2 sites for probably well over a year now.

The set up with this one was even less, just a few category pages ie lcd, led, plasma etc which had images . click buttons ( pulled from datafeedr) which lead to the comparison page, again with most of the feed limited to just a brief description, but not the full description of each product.

There is NO posts on here ie uniquely written content for each model / product etc

So im quite surprised its not this one which has dramatically had its traffic reduced and not the other to be honest!

For me to get these sites re-vamped and back upto how they should be , i need some basic advise on the layout/structure.

I know datafeedr has had many updates and changes recently but I dont know to what extent.

Ideally what I want is to write unique content for each model/product as a post, and then stick in the datafeedr code to display the comparison prices section...simple!

However the categories pages is what im stuck on.

On the category page I could have a product image linking to each model number where the unique content and prices are, but thatd mean me creating a new image for each product on that category page, linking and uploading it etc..which would reduce me being streamlined with this.

This would seem a shame to do when im hoping theres a way I can just pull the image, with a header from datafeedr itself, maybe even allowing me to manually put in a link to what page I want it linking to? this at all possible??

If not, what is the best way of creating these category pages?

Please bear in mind that I will be creating unique posts for each model with a price comparison section.

Ideally I don't want to have the category pages linking to another page which is pulled from the feed just with duplicate content.

Any thoughts and advise would be greatly appreciated
