    its quite a nice site things i would change to improve it even more are:

    Add a border radius on the container box to add a curved effect.
    put a margin top on the container to make it separate from the menu.

    With your HLinks remove the Underline property on the text but change the color to another color to give it the impression it IS a hlink.. have the underline property on the rollover instead..

    compress the pictures on the site... currently it takes approximately 10 seconds to download all the images..

    you need a contact form instead of direct link to their email... (potentials will find it offputting that they have to open up their mailbox to send an email..

    See if you can get a slideshow script for the site... that will help the gallery page dramatically and make it more aesthetically pleasing.

    Set your gallery pictures to a minimum of 800x600. They're tiny at the moment...and im on a netbook!!!

    Add some color variation... its a bit too creamy for my liking :/

    Code wise...

    Remove the style code in the html and put in a separate style sheet...this will help speed things up when a potential visits the site for the first time.


    REAAALLLL Pet peeve.....

    Never use tables to design websites!!!! Tables are designed for Data only. Create the site in #divs and .class's

    Other than that the site definately has potential.

    Hope this helps man.

    Thanks so much for your awesome feedback! I'm working on another project at the moment, but when I get a chance to revisit this site, I'll be coming back here first.

    The pet peeve, using tables, that's all I have ever done, I think I must take a look at some tutorials on divs and classes!

    I thought the OP was asking about the SEO updates not a site critique ???

    1. Move your title tags to the top of the Meta Tag List. ( personal opinion, but works for me )
    2. Create a unique title for each page ( try to include at least 1 keyword in the title)... several of your pages actually had word list separated by commas, some search engines will see this as potential keyword loading and penalize that page for it... they are looking for a title relevant to the content...
    3. That being said... you have possibly 1 maybe 2 pages with enough content that the search engines will actually bother indexing them... you need to have at least 250 characters of content for the search engine to actually consider it relevant to the site...

    When you do create content for the page... keep in mind to use H2 and LI appropriately ... to bring relevant importance to the content.

    Suggest that you include the phone number, etc... on every page of the site... with a link to the "contact us" page... it will help your "LOCAL" indexing.

    Speaking of Local Indexing ??? Hosting in Burlington Mass for a business in NSW ??? not helping.. although it helps the site load really fast here in the US... it bet it crawls for potential customers..
