    My site is for free online games.
    The platform I used was Joomla 1.5
    This is the first site I worked with Joomla, and I like it a lot.

    I would like to hear what you think about it.
    Do you like the design?
    What should be improved?
    Any comments will be welcomed.

    The site: gamestoenjoy.com/

    Thanks in advance [​IMG]

    Neat, I think if you removed the banner under Start Playing, it would look a lot better, looks a little bit clustered, but otherwise nice:)

    Thanks, glad you liked the design :)

    I will check how it looks without the banner.

    Your title and description are important !!
    The better your title and description are, the more visitors you should
    receive. You should try different keywords for optimum results (this is
    called SEO (search engine optimization) or changing your site for more
    visitors (or targeted visitors).

    <title>Start Playing at Games to Enjoy</title>
    . . You have 31 characters in your title (including spaces)
    Google displays 66 characters (including spaces)
    . . You may want to make the title more descriptive (to improve page
    rank and attract more visitors)
    <title>Free Online Games at FreeArcade.com - 3 New Games Added Daily</title>
    <title>Play Games - Free Online Games at AddictingGames!</title>
    <title>1980 games - Old online video and arcade games for free - Juegos en flash</title>
    <title>Play Games - Free Online Games, Downloadable Games from Shockwave.com</title>

    <meta name="description" content="Games to Enjoy - free games for all. Popular and new games for kids and adults. Find games by category and play random games." />
    . . You have 124 characters in your description (including spaces)
    Google displays 150 characters (below the title).
    . . You may want to check your keywords (keywords are the words people
    use to search for what they want on the internet). The more popular
    (revelant) keywords you use, the more visitors to your site (but not always true - you should experiment or change for best results)
    . . A good (free) keyword suggestion tool is "wordtracker"
    Free keyword suggestion tool for SEO, Adwords & blogging
    I hope this helps

    I'm sorry to say but this Arcade site doesn't look very nice.
    I checked the site on Ubuntu in Firefox and I see a lot bad things:

    the bookmarking links are partly hidden behind the green header
    with a larger screen I see LOTS of whitespace
    The Info icon is some times on the same row as the title and sometimes not
    you should more text to get some visitors via Google

    Hi Olaf,
    Thanks for the feedback.

    I originally designed the site for 1024 by 768 resolution,
    will check how it looks in high resolution, and improve it.

    I agree with the other points you raised, and will fix them.

    i liked your site and the template you have chosen for your site..this site will really catch the game players..most the gamers are the younger people and your design is according to them as this is not very complex to understand otherwise most of the game sites are complex built.....

    Thanks a lot :)

    That was exactly my intention.
    I wanted to provide design that is simple and easy to use,
    not bloated like many game sites usually are.
    I wanted that it will be clear from the first second you enter,
    that this is a game site.

    I likeed the sites, bookmarked it for future use. But under home i think you should add featured games, or maybe randomly drop a game there that way it is not blank.

    Hi Jholden and thank you.

    Actually the site is best shown on 1024 by 768 screen resolution,
    and there is no blank for this resolution.
    I will think how to improve the look on higher resolutions.
    If you have any ideas, I will be happy to hear.

    i am a big game lover and have seen most of the game site.....your site i found the simple that even i naive game user would easily can use it ..otherwise most of the game sites are of graphicals and content rich..and are of very complex to understand.this is good thing about your site that you have kept it simple yet the useful and attractive. ...the images are used and placed nicely and the content is appropriate for this theme...i liked specially the images and the games you have placed in your site.the template is simple...overall i would say that your site is simple but serve a purpose....

    I also love games a lot, and agree with every word you wrote.

    The purpose of the game site is to play games and have fun. It should be simple and attractive with many cool games, updating regularly.

    Thank you, really glad you liked it.

    Space Invaders is definitely one of the most addicting games I know ;)

    Little late, but thought I'd chip in.

    It isn't bad, but it's pretty basic. I mean, there isn't much going on there, it's really just a header. That's not a bad thing, it's visualy easy and accessable, but maybe if you improved on that a little bit people may find the site more attractive overall and hang around a bit longer.
