    My free classified listing

    This site is in French(Sorry). I've been working hard on my website. Honestly, I am much more like a coder and not a designer. So, I need so suggestions/help/feedback the way the site looks. Some people don't like the colors and they said it's not attractive. So, what you guys think is attractive?

    Thank you

    I fixed the URL for you.

    Dude, if you want a consensus on what several people think is attractive, you might as well commit yourself to the nut ward now...if you're not already insane, this will drive you there at the speed of light. You will never, ever get a consensus on that. Different strokes for different folks and all that jazzmarazzmatazz.

    That doesn't mean you can't improve your design, however, and here's what I'd suggest...have a look at a site such as Color Trends + Palettes :: COLOURlovers . They have quite a few color schemes you can draw from. Then either go with a serif or sans-serif font (or two) and stick with them. The problem is that you're mixing sans-serif fonts (Trebuchet) with non-sans-serif fonts (Georgia) and it gets hard to look at as a result. You may want to check out Handpicked free fonts for graphic designers with commercial-use licenses. | Font Squirrel for some fonts you can use.

    Another thing, and this relates to the money end...link units are okay as a secondary ad unit, but not as your primary one. You need to be running at least one, and ideally three, of the other ad units if you can make them fit nicely. Have a look at this page and see what you can use...in particular, I've had really good luck with 336 x 280.

    https://support.google.com/adsense/answer/2953032?hl=en

    I've also been playing with the 300 x 600 size since smaller ad units (e.g. 160 x 600) will fit into it as well, and it seems to work okay.

    There are other things you can do as well, but 1) I've given you enough to give you something to think about and 2) others will chime in and should be able to (I'm predicting "responsive design" will be mentioned in the next three suggestions that are made by someone other than me).

    Really? What does that have to do with the topic at hand?

    And since when did the "PA" in "Philadelphia, PA" stand for Pakistan?

    farida: I was talking to JMarton1. He dropped an unrelated link into his reply and is pretending to be from Philadelphia when he's really from Pakistan.

    I just realized why you couldn't see the post. It was moderated. The mods see it normally, but you couldn't have. I approved it so you could see what I see.

    Whenever we mods see someone posing (lying) and posting irrelevant and stupid stuff just to drop a link, we call them on it, and sometimes it doesn't make sense to those who are actually following the relevant content in the thread. Just know it was not aimed at you.

    He couldn't have seen the original post at the time, Mare. I just realized last night that it was in the moderated posts queue.

    I would center the adsense banner.
    I am not impressed by that red, I would have kept using orange across the pages.
