    i finished this about six months ago and traffic is picking up. we're getting lots of tail term hits and are hitting the SERPs

    http://seattle-condos.com/

    any features that you think may make this better?

    Pretty nice looking site! The first thing I noticed is you have no way to tell from the navigation what page you're on. You could add an underline to the current tab, bold the text, or something else so the viewer would be able to easily tell what page they are currently on.

    Again though, I really like the look :cool:

    i didn't really take that into consideration seeing there really is only one button you'd click...listing :o

    i'll work that in to my next update

    -Highlighted navigation
    -Too much whitespace below the Seattle Condos title
    -center search button vertically
    -Add filtering on listings page
    -make markers clickable to go to condo details on map view
    -About page is broken

    I like the design though, looks clean.

    Are you making ok cash with the adsense? That may be one type of traffic you could make a lot more on leads.

    If you are getting a good amount of traffic you should try talking with some of the larger Seattle realtors and see how interested they would be to advertise directly...or per lead deal.


    But site looks pretty decent. Nice and clean.

    decent money on adsense, but we get 1 solid lead per day for people ready to buy 500k+ condos. 50% of the realtors commission ftw

    Thats where the real money is ;).

    You should contact every realtor in Seattle and get them bidding on your leads now ;).

    I think you could cut out a little bit of the white space in the header above and below the google ad. It might end up looking a little too busy though, so I could be wrong

    Another way to capture more leads and then filter them to where you can make the most...

    Find or write a cool little downloadable ebook...maybe how to find the best price or find the best loan or whatever...something that people looking for new condos might want/need. And offer it for free on the site but to get it they have to sing up to the newsletter. Then you capture a ton of targeted emails and can push other things or services or work out a deal with a realtor to sell the list (could be big money). Or you could just keep it a standard newsletter and send weekly tips and highlighted properties and just sell ad space to local realtors at a premium ;)

    Looks good. I'd just suggest a mouseover effect on the nav and underline each to determine which page I'm viewing.

    One more for too much header white space.
