    Hey all
    My site is about a month old I am offering free services. I know it is kind of plain
    I think simple easy to use is good. You guys may tear it apart. But I would like both opions on how to improve it and ideas of free services to offer . I can do my own php to a point deff. not a pro. So any ides would be great Thanks

    It is in dire need of organization. All the text at the top is repetitious in the body. Privacy Stament needs fixed. You have a whole column of warnings. I am not sure what this is all about. Warning: include(ttp://app.feed.informer.com/digest3/OXFCEUO5VG.html) [function.include]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/bmcoll32/public_html/index.php on line 90

    Keep trying. In the meantime I think MSN has nothing to worry about me changing my home page. LOL. The greatest redeeming value is the colors. Nice and simple.

    The site looks disorganized.
    Group like items together and place them under a heading
    List the heading in a menu
    You then can design a menu (dropdown, flyout, or static)
    This should help organize the page
    Look at other similar sites to see how they organized their page and
    how they used a menu
    Search Google for free menu software (they have menu makers for
    CSS, Javascript, and PHP) also they have online menu makers
    You can try several and then choose.

    <title>Bmcoll free services email and business cards</title>

    Your title contains 45 characters, Google displays about 64 - suggest adding some more with
    keywords

    <meta name='keywords' content='free,classifieds,free stuff,free email,trade,games,movies,
    dvds,internet speed test,auto,Real Estate,Employment,books,free web hosting,youtube videos,
    send text messages from computer,send ring tones from computer,free business cards' />

    Keywords check in wordtracker (note: free alone is considered a stop word, suggest you combine
    it with classifieds - check trade use - it appears that you checked your keywords except for
    trade and free)

    4543 free classifieds
    1592 free classified ads
    1377 classifieds
    807 classified ads
    5366 free stuff
    4932 free email
    3773 free email accounts
    2642 free email address
    1374 free email providers
    439 trade
    34179 games
    13132 free games
    17859 movies
    12594 free movies

    <meta name='description' content='free classifieds free stuff free email dvds internet speed
    test free web hosting youtube videos send text messages from computer send ring tones from

    Ok thanks for all the advise from everyone. I have changed the site url to http://bmcoll.com and organized the site as well as verified the html code I think it looks much better now If you guys could take a second look that would be great.
