Thank you to everyone who helped me with all my website bugs. Both of my sites are now live, if you can give them a little love that would be great. www.MyDietPillWorks.com & www.ElectricCigaretteClone.com. If you could Digg them or Stumble them I would be happy to do the same for your site, just send me an email with your web link. Any critiques are most welcome too. Always looking to improve and catch errors. Overall Yola experience has been great, and the CS is very responsive unlike some other sites. I'm not very techie, but if I can help anyone with anything don't hesitate to drop me a note. Now on to link building so I can get them indexed and ranked, double checking keywords and all that tedious stuff.

Well done! I am glad you persevered despite a few obstacles. Thank you for reaching out on our forum!

You now have two great looking sites, and I hope you have a lot of success with them. Link building is an ongoing task, but it does pay off in your search engine rankings.

Hi Kj,

You must have worked like a steam train! Congratulations on getting those two up and running.

I'd really like to critique your sites and wondering if this could wait until tomorrow for me, in fact today when the sun is up!

I'm really looking forward to it.

Good day Kj,

www.MyDietPillWorks.com

Your three page site is a very easy read. No chore to sit back and take the words in.

Content;

The content is satisfyingly comprehensive {minus the price of a three month supply :( } The introduction is intriguing and the answers/descriptions give an excellent explanation of what's happening and how it works as an appetite control aid.

The graduated time study gallery didn't quite strike me at first. I think this is due to out of focus images and maybe this should be reviewed for a fix.

There's no Drug & Therapeutic data, advice and precautions given but a reference to FDA approval and I'm sure there are contraindications for this product. I'm not sure how people can be advised or warned (possibly)before they make their purchase.

Layout

Add a favicon to each page.

There's a logical flow to the information and that makes it easier all round to take it in bit by bit. It doesn't jump.

There is a minor distraction on the page layout that should be reviewd. You have set it out like a news sheet. Two columns. The boxed paragraph abuts the text of the LH column and runs against the Video module. This is a little out of whack with the rest of the column. (Chrome,

The three ads at the bottom of Home fit in well and are of good quality imaging. I would use an indented left margin and either justified or left aligned text. A margin of 7 to 10 pixels would sharpen the presentation. Centered text in multiple lines isn't a good style of typography. This is true for all the boxed text elements

Form Diet Pill page:
It's a good page. The first column is a little uneven and you could easily drop the Section on the trip, down a couple of cms. to balance the LH and RH.

The words are interspersed with interesting video and a great vista of a dream location. The use of boxed text is a good way of keeping the focus on the topic and the readers commitment to the topic.

Lose Weight Fast Blog

The inclusion of a blog is a really good idea. It's a way to keep your clients and friends, I daresay, connected throughout the course of their weight loss. I'm sure it's not all a bed of roses and for people to be able to reach in/out is a good support line. It also would help to humanise the supplier (you)?

Suggestions:

I wonder if a social element would have a place in your site. Something like Google Friend Connect? Joining others who are doing the same. Support, socialisation , advice from other users, getting through the lame spots.

I am not really sure of my next thought because I can see it in two lights. The white background is quite clinical, which brings in some level of confidence but can also add level of intimidation of removal. The use of some colour maybe worthwhile considering(?)

Aspects of SEO

Doing well!

Great description, great metas, keywords excellent except for "diet pill works" expect only 12 searches a month through search engines. Chuck it and replace.

You can change your page tabs also. One exclusive name per page tab helps in the rankings game.

One thing that interests me is your repetition of keywords on each page. You've got a lot of leeway there. Possible to think of other words related and relevant. Maybe have a look at a resource Google Webmasters. on keywords. Great advice and good lists of words

non-categorised

I can read your confidence. I'm sure others will too. This is worth something but no quantity. Most definitely a positive

It's only an impression and an opinion. As you have stated it's your own creation and a product of your mind. I certainly respect this.

I will look at your second site later on in the day.

Good luck with your launch Kj !

First I want to say WOW! So much information, Thank You! - I'm going to have to step back and review slowly to make sure I've covered it all. Cause every bit is highly valuable. So what are you shooting for? Chocolate Chip, Oreos, Pecan Sandies? lol

"graduated time study gallery" Is this in reference to the video I made for the 1st page about Jello?

"There's no Drug & Therapeutic data" - I put more of this on the checkout page.

"Add a favicon to each page" - I thought I did. A little bottle with capsules. Show in the url box. Isn't that it or am I confused?

"LH column and runs against the Video module" - yeah been bugging me & I can't seem to fix, cause I'm not experienced in html.

"three ads at the bottom" I will work on fixing those - Thanks

"Google Friend Connect" - I was thinking about adding that

"The white background" - I agree, really wanted more color up at the header, to fill in - looks so naked - had to change templates twice and ended up with this naked one. Not sure how to solve that - besides redoing another site and their templates are kind of limited with trying to get all the elements you want for your page.

"12 searches a month" - lol glad you found 12 - I found 0 - I just changed all that too - urg. Reason I did and I'm so confused now. Keyword originally Diet PillsThat Work (search 1,627). When I was running checks I noted that the robots don't cover words like "that" so I took it out. They only string together 3 key words not 4 -Correct? Health market is so big, really thought I had found a good niche word and now it's in my domain name! Perhaps I'm wrong on this account too, and you can enlighten me. Over time as I built up the site, and achieve a higher page rank I could add stronger/more popular keywords that would allow me to compete in the larger keyword arena of lose weight, diet pills, etc...?

"worth something but no quantity" - will I be able to compensate for this through my blog?

I can't thank you enough for taking the time to review my site. It has really been a tremendous help! If I can make a post for you somewhere or if you would like for me to stumble or digg your site, please let me know what I do to help.
Thanks again,
Kj

Hi KJ,

I haven't made it back to your second site yet. I will.

mydietpillworks.com as a URL is a plus in the SEO game. It's an area of SEO that is often discussed but difficult to quantitate. It's a similar discussion with your readable site name as well. The discussion i've read focused on different URL names to Site names and the discussion was centered around which is more important. I don't think that there's an absolute answer to this. Some URL's will run way ahead in the memorability stakes and others it will be the actual name of the site. Your is both memorable adn descriptive so it will be worth something and more so as it becomes known.

You asked about keyword lenghts. Originally it was about single words but now very much about phrases. Short and sweet has to be a plus because more people will hit on the short and sweet phrase than the longer phrase generally. Short descriptive phrases can be quite accurate and informative so it's no surprise that the Google people are focusing on this.

The graduated time gallery i was referring to you top banner.
