(Not the ecommerce sales site tied to it.)
Not bad, the order online now banner looks a little pixelated though.
less table more div would be my only comment other than the large phot comment. looks good in IE, opera and FF good job
Not too hot about the design... if I were to rate it, I'd probably give it a 4 or a 5 out of 10.
Good point. I'll take care of that. Thanks.
Thanks for the comment.
I don't really use tables, except for the DHTML menu scheme, and then the general layout (it's just a bunch of php requires.) I guess I could do the same thing with DIV, but I just didn't want to redo my whole template.
What do you suggest I add/change/delete?
I know a lot of people like horizontal menus instead, I've considered that, but I like the way it flows on the side of the beveled table to make it look more 3d-ish.
Hmm... yeah, forgot I did that, I was just being lazy. Thanks!
I think it's my preference for clean design over graphically intense design. I've always been like that.
I like your DHTML driven menu and the opacity changes on sub menus, serious points if you wrote that yourself.
I think my major dislike for it is the color scheme and the "beveled look", but it could be because I'm colored blind to certain colors and shades. The colors seem to be clashing violently together for me.
I'm also not too hot about the 3D design/menu look. Vertical menu is not bad, but I usually like to maintain the majority of the viewable area for content (silly marketing perspective I have). I think it's constructed well though.
Good, clean HTML (I'd rid the tables though ). Nice DHTML driven menu. Content is a huge plus. Needs some SEO.
Fair enough, clean design is a plus in my book too. The menu is home grown, as far as the graphic design, but I borrowed some js from some other sites.
I understand where you're coming from. I've elimated some of the harsher colors, and implemented a standard background scheme.
I'm a bit ignorant, what's SEO? Thanks for the comments!
SEO = Search Engine Optimization. It's optimizing your website throughout all the pages specifically for search engines and ranking.
People tend to think that SEO is just basically meta tags with keywords and descriptions, there is so much more to SEO than that. It's practically a different language and takes experience to get good at. E-marketers tend to speak this language efficiently
I would run pay-per-click ads of my website through google for a minimum of 6 months, monitor hits and conversion rate. Test a variety of "keywords" through google's PPC options, then create monthly reports of hits, most active keywords, and which users actually BOUGHT your product online.
Compare high percentages of this report, and build out an SEO campaign on your website based on the keywords you monitored through google's PPC software.
I found this method to be the best method for getting and maintaining high ranks on google. The higher the rank, the more likely your website will be displayed "first" in google, which is the link users are most likely to click on.
I went to go find this link for you, it will provide you some use, and noticed it was #1 when I searched for "SEO". A few months ago they weren't even on the first page. Just an example on how these guys know their shit
Articles, techniques, and marketing methods regarding SEO.
Oh yeah, and if you intend to use PPC (Pay per click), be ready to spend a few hundred dollars...
Jesus that sounds complicated... The website at a glance seems like a wealth of good information. I'm going to check out that watson program...
We already have the number one google position...
I definitely will look into this.
Looks like it was made in Frontpage. I would play around with a CMS and templates to get a more professional looking site.
It's #1 when you search for "Morphoplex". What about keywords like "fat burner" or Vitamin B12. Shit like that.
No, it was a text editor.
Frontpage uses all tables.
Hmm... yeah, I'll work on it...
Ok, newly updated and redesigned. Any comments?
Wonderful improvement. The only changes I would just by looking at it would be opinionated cosmetic changes.
Create a banner and a non-flash option for the old 56k'ers.
Anything specific? I'm functionally color blind so any comments would help, be brutal.
Workin on it. Just put it up there...
Hey does anyone know of a way you can do that without having a splash page that says flash/noflash?
not very pleasing to the eye. I think the layout is pretty standard, good job on that. (too many people these days try too hard to be different, and it doesn't work) However, I think you need to take a few lessons in color theory. The green on top of the blue background just looks tacky. Then you have the blue logo, and green text throughout the page. Also, get rid of the color changing prices... make them red, people will see them.
I would love the lessons. I'm color blind.
when you say green you mean the text under the tool bar, correct? Where is there green text other than that?
i think its just kind of boring
