Hi Guys
I have been happily using Yola for a couple of years now and I recently had a video review done of my site
I was amazed to hear the feedback - it wasnt good!
Now i can happily take the flak for the content, images but was surprised to discover his thoughts on the SEO

Could you take a look at the video and give me your feedback re Frames etc and anything that i could be doing better SEO wwise.

I have since changed a few things on my site so it wont be quite the same as in the video

I have uploaded his review here:

It maybe that I need a prfessional to intervene in my site.
Do yola provide that support?

Hello John,

You asked the question as to whether or not you need professional intervention? I guess the answer is related to the success of your site. Are you happy with the business generation from your site? If so then you don't need to go down that path. If not then Yola do have a design service partnership:

wrt to SEO: Do many people/clients come to you through a web-search and find your site? Are the numbers satisfactory from your perspective? If not then you can work on the SEO and advertising aspects.

His reference to frames is just wrong. He was confused by the appearance of a vertical menu with a vague separation vertical line and presumed that the style was based on frames. His analysis of it being a 90's system I don't think is so relevant by itself. The question is: Do you like the appearance of the style, have any friends or colleagues given you feedback on this aspect?

Could your site be better? Of course it could and so could most sites on the web.

Is it worth re-doing? Based on your doubts and statements I think that it would benefit from some further development.

It could be counter-productive for you to be uncomfortable with your site so for that reason I would suggest that you reshape it on the reviewers advice or a designers input.

Hello John,
GOP is right, this guys analysis had some good points But his other comments were just brutal and I believe from a narrow mind to boost his own rating on You Tube.
Where did this guy come from? Did you ask for the analysis? Is there an operation that one can get to have Your Tubes tided?
