    One major problem I see is that your page is WAY too long. I would recommend dividing most of it up and making links to them..Its not necessary to put all the reviews, etc. on one page...split it up. Also there's way too much blank space at the bottom of the page. I like the color scheme though

    you dont need all that space
    also do you really need all that advertising, it looks terrible
    is there a lot of traffic to your site?
    if you get a lot of traffic to your site because of the great content go ahead
    advertise your heart out, youre sure to get a few clicks
    but if not try to be more subtle
    maybe put the advertisemnt in sections and identify them as ads

    The banner text doesn't contrast well with the background. Also, the greeness with a rounded serif font strikes me as being more appropriate for a site about organic herbal rememdies...doesn't seem very hardcode gamerzz. Also, I'd drop the ".com" bit from your banner title - we're already there so we kinda know.

    Yes it's too long (and too many ads) but otherwise seems pretty good.

    Thanks for the input guys... I dont know why my tables took off like that all the way down the page. I will try and fix them.
    Any ideas how i can up my PR? Im sure i need some reciprocal linking... right.

    Just glancing at your page you've done most of the right things but yes, back links make a big difference.

    Try have people at http://bluegeckonetwork.com/designForum/index.php, an SEO forum. They can review your SEO for you if you ask nicely.

    There are a few problems with the Borders in IE, and the pages layout falls apart in the cheats section. The cheats section looks cool, but aren't there enough cheat websites out there? They all seem to be pretty big and well established too. Personaly, I would ditch the cheats section.

    The page is full of a ton of ads, and then three small links and descriptions to the actual site. The ads are realy anoying, and since there is nothing else on the page(except cheats and ads) they will probably never visit it again, and they'll bookmakr the forums homepage instead. There doesn't seem to be much of a purpose to the homepage. Why not put the forum index on the homepage, or design the site around the forum?

    And there's alot of stuff on this site about getting active forums and stuff if you haven't already gotten to it.
