Hi members,

Just wanted to share some good news, my main site below is on Google page 1 for 'best home business' and I am delighted.

All I have ever done is follow the advice from people who have gone before me and that is to write articles, visit forums, use traffic exchanges, submit your site to web directories, post to you blog on a regular basis and keep doing it over and over again,

Above all, these measures are all free and I am no guru, also my website is still being built LOL, so now I am worried that I am generating traffic to a half finished site so I have a lot of work to do.

I would appreciate any feedback you can give. I am new to wordpress and have the Atahualpa theme which I am trying to muddle along with. I know it looks poor at the moment as it's a work in progress but I have been spending a lot of time on SEO instead of this which is the wrong way around.

What I would like to do is ad some colour to the site to make it more visually interesting and to create cente block sections where I can display other opportunities as and when I want to.

Apart from your first thoughts I would appreciate any help or training sites you can recommend where I can improve my design skills to get it the way I want it,

regards,

Mal.

Congratulations!

Your site is very nice. Comes up fast, and other WordPress sites are usually not. It's orderly and asks for no navigation since (afaik) it's all in one place.

If your site gives you satisfactory results, it will serve its purpose. I understand that it's far from finished, so you'll probably try different variations and tracking to give you knowledge about what works best for you. Here are some things that you might want to consider. These are my personal views, and you may feel otherwise -- which is OK.

There's some overlap for those who want to reduce the browser window.
I'm one of them because I often have several windows on screen at the same time, which means I'll have to reduce the window. If I do that with your site, here's what happens:



In other words, there's an overlap of column 2 into column 3.
Personally I prefer max. 2 columns, which makes the site easier to read.

Also, if I let the mouse hover over "Bookmark & Share" a new object appears, which covers some of the text. I think that's annoying, even if all you have to do is move the pointer away. I would have preferred this window to either be static, to push the text away so it's not covered, or make it necessary to click, giving the user a choice.

I work with a site daily, with menues that work like this, and I think it's very disturbing. Better to click if you really WANT the menu to appear.

You are using Google adwords or something to that effect. I tried that once, and found that I was advertising for my competitors. Not a good thing, so I stopped using it. Besides, I've only used Traffic Exchanges for my marketing, and adwords is banned there.

The most important thing is: Does it bring in money? If it does, it serves its purpose. The point is, it MIGHT bring in more money if some things were done a little differently.

I wish you the best of luck. Do what you think is best, and always test alternatives. Setting up different sites with the same theme could give you an idea about what works best without having to wait too long to be able to compare results.

Hi Inge,

Thank you so much for taking the trouble to reply and give me your opinions.

You have made some good points there and I have taken them all on board. I will try and experiment with two columns as I didn't know about the overlap.

thanks again,

Mal.
