    My website has been around for about 3 months. I am still no where to be found in the SERPS. Anyways, i would appreciate it if you could comment on my site structure and see if you have any pointers in how I can optimize it more for my keywords. Thanks in advance!

    Regards,
    Brian

    P.S. - I am always working on backlinks, so primarily concentrate on how i could optimize my site better. Thanks again.

    Looks good, although it does feel a little clutered. Keep in mind that SE's don't dig deeper than 4 embedded tables, so make sure you don't go more than 4 embedded tables. Overall looks like you have a lot of content which is the best way to get in SERPS.

    Sorry, update to my last post. If you are offering paid services I also would not suggest using googles adsense. Just my 2c.

    I like it! I like the color scheme that you have and the grid background. I also like the pictures embedded into your header. Everything looks exactly in place and aligned superbly. Great Job!

    It wouldn't be bad, but the red really stands out too much and drowns out any attention the rest of the site would receive.

    Yea, well from one point of view... it attracts your eyes to the service links immediately... but on the other hand it doesn't relaly flow w/ the whole blue color scheme. I'll see what i can do...

    The Overall Design:
    I would lose the grid bg. Grids remind me of mathematics and graphing. Your site has nothing to do with the rectangular coordinates of calculus.

    IMHO, Red doesn't bring focus to content. It actually pisses some people off. I would bring subtle focus to the important main content because it is much more effective. I'll write a tutorial sometime to explain what I am trying tell you in one sentance.

    The Overall Structure:
    It reminds me of an infomercial on tv. I hate infomercials and most other people hate it too.

    The site also looks like a php nuke site. You have three columns and the Google Adsense is located where most php nuke sites have a Shoutout box.

    You have a lot of redundant links all over each page. You may think that this helps the user, but it is what will primarily confuse the user. This will trim the fatty feeling of your site.

    The users online area does take up too much of your site's real estate.

    The latest news and monthly special is a great thing to have on the main page, and the links in the latest news are appropriate.

    Final Remark:
    Keep it up, you'll eventually have a site that invites people in and makes them feel welcome.
    Cheers, zionlocke :chinese:

    UPDATE: I took the red out and made the colors blend better.

    if you can, make the cursor type for the pop out menu
    Code:
    style="cursor:pointer;"
    so that you get the same effect as links when you hover on them
