    Talking New Web Site Finally

    Hi everyone...well after many months, I have finally published my website and would appreciate any comments (good or bad). I still have to add a "contact us" form and I would like a more professional look, but with work and patience, I'm sure this will happen soon.
    Thank you in advance.

    Hi Lynda,

    Site looks nice except for a few things that bothered me ...but that isa personal opinio. First I think the navigaion bar should be in one spot on all pages...you have it on the side on the first page and then on the top for all other pages. I persaonlly also like the nav. bar to be consistent and have al lthe links on all the pages but I knwo some like it the way you have done it where the link for the page you are on is not shown.

    Also your Pages are untitled when you click on them and this is easy to solve by going into your Properties box for each page and giving it a Title...this makes it easier for the search engines to find.

    I htink you've got a good site it loads fast so no worries there.

    Good luck with everything and Welcome to the Forum.

    Thanks Beezz...I really appreciate the info...I didn't realize I had to name the pages myself...LOL...I thought that came automatically and also found out where to enter the meta tags...I also changed the navigation bar and color so it is the same on all pages...actually it does look much better and also leaves me room for other things down the left side.
    Thanks again,
    Lynda

    Good job, ditto Beez' comments and might suggest:
    -The rollover for the Navbar could be a solid color, as opposed to the BV logo.
    -The quote page link is not working.
    -Check your grammar, I believe there should be a comma not a period after texts in: For everyone: In other areas, including literature and educational, academic and technical texts. The Virtual Word.com can

    Thanks, Bill...appreciate your comments. You are correct that I missed that error in grammar and it will be changed immediately. Also the roll over should be a solid color, not BV logo. The reason the quote page doesn't work is because I haven't completed that page yet. Hopefully by tomorrow, it will be up and running.
    Thanks again,

    Hi Lynda: Nice site. In addition to what has been said, the thing that really jumped out at me was your header. The jaggedness of the words on your home page in the header. Is there something you can do to clean that up? Are the words part of your grayline background gif? Anyway, I think that would look better if the words weren't so jagged. Didn't have much time to look deep into your site, but I think you have done a great job!

    Yes, I noticed that problem and I have been trying to fix it...very frustrating to say the least...but because it is the name of my company, I think my only other option is to make a new heading with crisp lettering.
    Thank you...your comments are very much appreciated.

    The titles on the pages - as with the text on the pages - are a major part of what search engines will use to pick up your site in searches - so they are vital to be done and done right.

    Have a look at the following SEO ebook for a little help with this:
    Seo - The Basics

    You've got a great start here.

    Hi Beth...thank you for the e-book. I have read part of it and it is going to be very helpful. This is "need to have" advice for me, as I'm not very familiar with meta tags, search engines, etc.
    Thanks again,
    Lynda

    Hi Sharon...I'm in the process of building my quote page as I write this. Having a few problems, but hopefully can I find what I need to know with all the tutorials available in BV. If not, I will scream for help...)
    I have also made a few changes on the site, like changing that ragged header on the first page.

    And going to hold my ears for when that scream comes in :)

    That's what the forum is for - and sometimes we all have to scream!

    Talking Re: New Web Site Finally

    Hi Beth...well I screamed...did you hear me????..LOL...you guys are the greatest. I hope that someday I will be able to give some answers myself, as well as "scream" for help...LOL
    Anyway, I opened a new thread to ask for help on a drop down menu...but I'm such an airhead sometimes...I went back and really read what I was doing and was finally able to figure it out...so now I have my drop down without the "GO" button...only thing is I have to enter each state's name seperately. I was hoping to cut and paste...oh well...can't have everything...must get on with this quote page...I get so involved and will probably be up all night doing this...LOL

    Your site is coming along nicely, and your progression into the finer details will pay off for you.

    More of a style aspect, do you really think it appropriate to rely on such consistent use of bold for commonplace textual development?

    I noticed that some of your pages seem wider than your home page which causes users which have smaller screen resolutions to get the dreaded side scroll. An example of this is your 'services' page. Try to keep each page the same width throughout so as to keep consitency. Apart from that though everythinh else looks good, nice colors and easy to navigate. well done!!

    Please start a seperate thread with your question. When you add on to another's thread with an unrelated questions such as this, it will probably go unnoticed..

    Having said that, I will tell you that if you watch the tutorials carefully, and then watch then again, you will be up and running in no time. You will be able to get your 1st page up right away, and from then you will be sailing!
    Give it a try!
