    Hi there,

    I am wondering if anyone wants to check out my new SEO website that I just knocked up using random images, and text from the internetzz..

    Does this look like a decent website, would you think.. "hmm yes, I trust these guys..." or something...

    anyway here's the URL

    Code:
      lockseo .co.uk/

    Looks clean and organised but I agree something is missing. Maybe it's just all that white playing tricks on me though. Maybe make the background the slightest bit darker to bring out the page more.

    Also quick tip: Probably not the best idea to post links to your site on here working or not. Some people may take it as an invitation to attack it. Personally I'd build some rep and friends around here that you can PM the link to that you trust :)

    You should have a fill in form that looks something like this:
    How many new visitors do you want?
    In which niche do you want your visitors from?
    Whats the name of your site?

    Button Send (invoice proposal)

    This method gives you a chance to convince your future costumers on an early stage.

    It's a nice shell but you need to flesh out the content, and get the on page seo done.

    the testimonials are about a book, not seo

    also all the results I guess you did not achive and just used images from somewhere else so you would be pretty much busted if any customers went to any of those site

    colours need changing white is not good

    good layout though

    Nice Website .You need to add in the Home page a Widget call to Action for requesting Quotes or Free Report of a website to collect leads.
    I have 2 questions please :

    1. What WP theme are you using ? it is free or paid ?
    2. What plugin that you use when you click on the images to see the ranking of your work ?
    Thank you

    The people who will be visiting the website will already know me, it's more to check out what I say is true (btw I'm not scamming anyone lol). But thanks for the input!

    1. Toom Morel Lite. Very nice free theme, you can buy the pro version, has a nice slider, but nothing you can't put in yourself I assume.
    2. It's built in, just add the images to the gallery (using the gallery template type), and done. Nice! :)

    Ok, after a lot of experimenting with the background I think I got one that finally fits! :)

    I'd say give images a border or use a less bright colour where all of the magenta is. It just looks weird with the white rectangle without a border in the magenta box.

    Put border on the image, and yes, I agree I'll look through the code, it was a preset, it was better than the blue.

    The MOST important thing for an seo site is to have a high ranking in Google. People are only interested in how high you rank, low ranking seo site are obviously not the best at what they do.

    I know it is a new site and all but ignore tweaking the look of it for now, concentrate on getting it ranked as high as possible first.

    My own site has always been #1 for a couple of years in my area. Now ask me if I care how pretty my site is :D

    EDIT: After re-reading what I wrote I realized that might have sounded a bit harsh. So glad you took it in the spirit it was meant. Site looks ten times better than mine but my point was that my focus is completely different. Best of luck mate.

    True. But, I am not starting a full on SEO business, I am buying domains to sell to offline people in their niches, I am not selling them SEO, unless of course they ask for it :p

    Fairy nuff, I take your point but once you start selling one service people will start asking for more and before you know it you are an SEO and web design expert.

    This is the way it started for me, few years back (1990's) I did a couple of sites for friends and such, next I was doing shopping carts, PPC campaigns, SEO,and whatever you can imagine. If people like you they tend to come back or refer friends :D
