I'm creative and have lots of great images on my site, but I don't feel that my website is organized for the best optimization.. I am trying to understand the ways to lead my viewers properly through the website with the most benefit to me and to create SEO, which I am trying to understand. I am a one-man show so I do everything myself. my website is www.specklesartstudio.com and I would be so grateful to have some assistance with this!!

Dear Laura,

I want my website to be reviewed by Yola experts because there is a very great work which is been created in my Yola website. In my residential country, people believe in stuffs which is been rated experts and I personally do my business base on website designing here in my country.

I think the only way for me to get my clients the guarantee that they needed in other to believe that Yola has more quality in website creation other than their expected Dreamweaver and so on, is to get a reviewed page as a confirmation.

When I first started creating my website with Yola, I never believe that Yola will give me something as quality as what we have up here: www.saintceja-inc.com. base on our introduction, we've been introducing our website on yola tags.

If Yola experts will be reviewing our website, it will enable us to achieve our goal on customers persuasion and including the boosting of our Yola referral.

Hi Laura

I would like a fresh pair of eyes to have a look at my website. While couple of my pages are already ranked well n Google SEO, I dont get great conversion. Probably due to aesthetics.

I am constantly updating my site and looking for new innovative ideas to attract traffic and convert readers. I have been a Yola user for many years now and need a boost in creativity and design to get my sites to the next level.
My Entrepreneur Incubator (www.ei.co.za) site is designed with a 3D effect to try and make the site leap off the page, This has take an immense amount of work to get right but I am not convinced that it is doing what I had hoped it would.
I would really appreciate a review and a designer kick up the butt to raise my game.
Thank you so much.

I am an artist, dealing primarily in fine silver. I have also been a software developer in a former life. I can envision an 'artistic' looking site that enhances and showcases my work, but when I get in front of the computer to develop it, my software development hat prohibits linking that creativity with the computer screen. I need help in designing a site that can reflect the design in my jewelry! If you can help with a free review and makeover I would SOOOOO appreciate it!

Hi i used Yola to design my website http://aidanobrienfansite.com/
Yola is an excellent website design tool and so easy to use i upgraded to yola silver in 2012 and renewed at yola bronze this term as i didn't really need silver.
since launching my site in 2010 i started off very small updated once a week
in the past year i have stepped up the work on the site and now have a big following for a niche racing website in 2012 we had over 10,000 unique visitors
this April i had a record 2756 unique visitors to the site.
i have actually just given the site a total facelift/makeover very pleased with the results its as professional as i can get it.

I just upgraded my website and though I am paying extra I find my website isn't improved from what I had beforehand.
Maybe I am not using the website features to their full potential? I find my website a little flat and though it serves its purpose it doesn't have any WOW factor.

Thanks for considering me for a makeover!

Of course, I would like a makeover! As you can see, it is a "homemade" website (and people can tell) created all by myself. I am very novice at website construction. I do get visitors but, I believe that a more professional website would get me more results! A better job application would add a great asset to my site!. I no longer have the time (or experience) to update my site and I would be ecstatic if someone would make my site nicer.

Thanks for the thought. It is a nice gesture on your part whether you choose my site or not!

Hi! I know my site has been well received in the local Pet community, but I'd be grateful for feedback. Most hosting/design places charge way more than I can afford to spend, and as a small business owner any expenses I have are passed on to my clients. I am very picky on what I buy for business and only buy when I have a true and justifiable need.

I have volunteered for the Moose Lake community for 5 years and have taken on the task of hosting the website for the Old Fashioned 4th of July Celebration held in our town each year. I could really use some advice on that 'wow' factor which it seems to be lacking. I want the site to be user friendly, easy to navigate and have all the necessary information that visitors and residents are looking for. Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated. Moose Lake is a GREAT place to live, and I want to reflect that in the website. www.oldfashioned4th.com
Thank you so much!

Hi Laura,
I love the way I can create pages, but I would love my website to be more professional. And I would really like to add a blog page, or a "rolling" news feature. But these things are beyond my "homemade" abilities. I would love if someone could take a look and let me know if I can be helped. Thank you so much for letting me ask and helping us newbies have makeovers for our sites.

my website is www.tdaccountingservices.ca. I look forward to your reply.

We are a new publishing firm, Saguaro Books, and would like to be sure our website is the best it can be to attract the best authors of middle grade and young adult fiction. We are not website developers and would be forever grateful for any and all help you can give us. As a new company, our budget is low to non-existent. Thanks in advance for the help.

I would be interested in having my site reviewed. I'm a professional artist, and most of my sales are online. This is my primary point of contact with my clients and new customers, so I would like my site to make sense and be engaging at the same time. I'm my own everything, from artist to marketer to accountant and business manager, so any help is greatly appreciated!

Please, please consider my website for a makeover. My company, 'tea par tea' - complete tea party tableware and accessories needs help with the shopping cart page. I do not think it looks professional and I think it might stop customers from ordering. - I know Yola offers some great features for this but I don't know where to start. Please, please help. I would be so grateful.

I would love to have my website reviewed. I'm a teacher who uses my website to share enrichment ideas & materials with other teachers and parents. Mostly I share information on contests and free programs through my blog area, but I also have a few products for sale. I'd love to be able to offer more, and reach a wider audience.

I would like to have my website srethng.com reviewed, I've been at this for 5 years and really don't have the sales on this website that I think I should. Trying to figure out what is wrong, is it the design or something else?

As a photo-enthusiast my website is my main stage for showing off my work. It is hard to choose what the best design is.
Do I show lots of photos that are clickable, leaving it to the web visitor to browse or do I prefer a slideshow or a more controlled way of presenting my work? What is the best format used for the pictures so that even slower speed connection can see them with ease, but without loss of quality? How do I protect against unlawful downloads of photos? Do I include a blog, or should the photos tell their own story?

So many criteria that come into play, that up until now I have kept to a simple design template. I would love to get creative input to make it look more original and generally better, without being too artificial about it.

I would like to include an interactive aspect to the site as well, where users can tell me what their favorite shots are, so that I can assemble those into a special album that is featured on opening. Maybe even showing a photo of the month from that album and rewarding one of the people who chose it in some way. But without this process becoming too time-consuming for me.

So... if you want to help me with that, Yola team, I would be thrilled!!
