    Hey guys I just started working on my new web site. I was wondering if some of you could take a look and let me know what you think. Any ideas on what to add to it.

    I like the page, its simple and to the point.

    A couple of things I would do are:
    1. on the first page, line up the Penguin picture with the "Got Berm" picture, b/c it looks chaotic otherwise
    2. I see you have a logo on your truck, put the same logo up at the top of each page.

    :)

    EPPSLLC, Thanks yours was harder than moving the penguin but I got it figured out. I thing I need more relevant pics before I add more lables. I guess I'm gonna have to get out of the truck and take some pics.

    danknight60, Gone I guess your right thanks. :nod:

    get that link in your like i have mine . . . .that will help you get on goggle ASAP
     
  10. I would add a list of all cities/counties/states you service on every page on the right hand side. This helps with search engines when people search for something like Joecounty Snow Removal...

    Also your pages all have button images to access them. Add each page link in TEXT to the bottom of every page. Search engines can't read images to follow and list all pages but they can read text. This will help get more pages on search engines for higher results.

    And last but not least, take this as you may... I'm not a fan of the "scattered" images technique. I'd line up all images in rows rather than having them scattered on the page like a scrap book. Some people like pages done like this, I just think it looks messy and too busy.

    ABOUT US

    We are a new company. This is are first season and we hope to serve Juneau well over the upcoming years.

    If you change nothing else, atleast change ARE to OUR. But I would not mention it is your first year. What license do you need to push snow in AK? If you need one, then tell what it is called.

    YOU SAY: We carry both general liability and commercial vehicle insurance.
    I WOULD SAY: We carry Commercial liability and commerical vehicle insurance.

    Put on there what equipment you have if it is good stuff. Say you specialize in residential and commerical or whatever you do.

    Say you offer salt if you do.

    I would remove the Photo Album until you have more before and after pics. You used all of those pictures in other places on your page which looks good.

    The logo on the top of your web page is Snow-A-Way, which I like.
    The logo on your truck is Snow-a-way. The logo in the pages is Snow-a-way.
    Make up your mind and make them all the same.
    I would bold everywhere you logo is used. Snow-a-way verses Snow-a-way

    That is enough for now. Post if or when you change anything.
