nice banner... other than that, I think the site is to unsymmetrical....

symmetry (uniform) should not exist too much in a web page, however, not too little either.

When designing a website, consider the rule of thirds.

Draw imaginary lines to make your website into nine even sized boxes. That is 2 horizontal lines and two vertical lines. The best place on a website's page is one of the four places where those lines meet.

This is just one tip relating to making a webpage unsymmetrical (but not too much).

lol, please do give your input on my site... that's why my sites keep getting better and better. My first site I created is large but kind of sucks in design. I think my current site I'm working on is pretty awesome for it's purpose, but I love the opinion and suggestion of others to make it even better. And you're absolutely right, the purpose is to make money, however, the purpose is to make "as much" money "as possible" and with tips and suggestions from others, perhaps, "more money" is possible. I believe along with a billion other people that the first 10 seconds of a visitor viewing your site are the most critical, if they don't like your site, they WILL leave even if you have good products and services to offer. Poor site design could tell them you're unprofessional in the products you're selling, it may also give them a headache to view your site. Remember, I was simply telling you how I felt as if I was a customer, I probably wouldn't have returned to your site after the first time. I think your page is unorganized and painful to the eye. Feel free to critique my sites all you want. I tend to apply suggestions very frequently! :)

Hi Donald ... like I said to each his own, you either go with the trend or not. I personally find clicking on a google ads running up the side of searches or from AdSense on someones website is a complete waste of time and do not lead to what you are really after ... so all sites that have AdSense on them I ignore ... I cannot be the only person smart enough to realize that ... as painful to the eyes go... how does your head not explode working on your own sites ... I looked at your Jelly Bean thing, clicked on one link and it was dead ... You only need some minor common sense to realize ... nothing will drive people away faster than 404 messages ... your critique of my sites such as wwww.PrintingLoft.com is too funny. And really I have only been at this for less than 2 months ... I noticed how long you have been doing this ... How could you not be getting better as a designer
I think you fall into a very common group where you view your site as looking really good ... check out your bounce rate ... there are reasons that you have not grown into 1000s of unique visitors ... now you know why you are getting headaches everytime you work on one of your websites ... for me I am just thrilled that a couple of Customers in New York purchased some Printing from one of my sites that is less than 6 weeks old ... plus I do not need them to come back to my site as there is a cookie on their computers that will pay me when they buy again.Lets see where a year of this gets us ... lol

How exciting to have earned your first bit of cash and that you were able to Yola as a vehicle to receive those earnings!

Well done and I wish you every success!
