    Hello all, i am new here. I want to present my new website...

    The site is [EDIT: Link removed by TheGAME1264. You only need it in the one spot. Thanks.] in the site you can search thousands
    of files on Pdf format. It's look like a normal search engine but this shows you results only of PDF link pages, so
    you can search for example: marketing ebooks, tax system, health insurance and in seconds appear many of
    results..

    What do you think about this site? I need comments to know where to change the site..

    Thanks, if i posted in wrong section sorry, i am new here.

    Ya know, the rules was the first thing I read when I signed up here. Am I in the minority?

    At any rate, the logo image needs either a transparent background or the same color as the background. Choose the former over the latter if you are able. Change the color of the links. Default color looks so...boring/amateur. Overall, your main page copies the Google simplicity thing pretty well.

    Move the ads. It took me 2 or 3 searches to realize I had to scroll down to find the results. Maybe even lose the main page look once the search completes. If you're going to copy Google's look, do it all the way.

    Not bad. I would ditch the two square ads and put one more leaderboard sized ad underneath.
    Also, make it so that the text stays in the search box even after you hit Search.

    I did a few searches, but I don't see how this is all that useful. Google has a PDF search feature if you add filetypedf to a query, and other than the way this thing opens PDF files, I don't see what is really "better" about this search.

    Your recordset paging starts at Page 0 for some reason. That's the second such failure I've seen in two days (the other one was on a FOX Sports website).

    And you built a search engine on Wordpress? Wordpress?!?!?!? Are you freakin' serious? I know you're a university student, but dude...you might as well have a big graphic on your site saying "Hey spammers, here's a search engine based on open source, exploit for your own benefit...oh, wait, you won't do that." If you don't move that thing off of Wordpress, this search engine will not succeed. As in 0 chance whatsoever.
