    Hi,

    I am building a site and I need to add content on the front page for seo purposes. What would you suggest? I am not sure where to put the content.

    I know the pictures can be speed optimized, I plan on doing some spriting soon.

    Any suggestions are welcome, I have kinda come to a road block with this.

    Thanks

    could use a slider with a number of different slides. That way you can have loads of content on the page without it ruining the look of the page with a massive block of text:

    some examples:

    free wordpress plugin that does it:

    You could put the content under the books.

    I like the idea of adding the content under the books. If you're trying to actually sell them, you should have snippets of reviews filled with bold-ed keywords, for each book. Something like this:

    (Everything You Need to Know About Worm Farming):

    This GROSS idea is actually the SMARTEST way to drive GREEN LIFE into your summer gardening! Shriveled vegetables and black, rotting tomatoes are NOT a sign that you're a bad gardener. Chances are that your DIRT is just missing the cheapest organic fertilizer that most call the "Secret of their Healthy Gardens"! It's easier than you think when you read this practically FREE how-to guide.

    from a design and UX professionals perspective:

    1. get rid of the background and blue main body div colors. Use a tone that is green as a basis, have a floating background either photo passed via photoshop of gardening or white space. Not that wood tile.
    2. The upper menu bar is disoriented, you need to have top divided into 2 sections. Move menu items to upper left, cart to lower left. Get rid of cheezy drawn characters.
    3. Keep style continuity, from the main site to the forums, same layout thematically.
    4. Your KB is dead, also the font selection for the menu items is not good. Dont use images for menu items, kufon only if you must.
    5. All CAPS in a lot of your titles, change to all lowercase.
    6. You jump right into the books, have a preview or video, or sample first.
    7. menu items broken.
    8. fails w3c validation, must fix that
    9. Are you sure you dont want to start over with a theme that hits on a lot of elements correctly right off the bat? If you don't know how to code/css it is a better option.

    I always come of harsh in review so sorry it is meant as a professional critique.

    No that's what I was looking for. I changed a few things and need to work on some others. I kept the bg and characters, I like them. I appreciate the critiques from everyone.

    Yes, you are right image optimization easy and it's ranking fast. For image ranking I will suggest you create PDF content and submit file hosting site that's very effective for you that's also generated traffic.
    Some more suggestion for you:-
    Use the keyword(s) in the file name
    Create descriptive alt text
    The right anchor text
    Make sure the image matches the content

    I sell ebooks on the site and they have TONS of keywords that I would love to use. Like 100 pages worth for each book. Would I be able to use them for that? How do I use them?

    there is lots of room for improvement, i would maybe get a tab on the bottom with lots of content in it.
    also you may want to change the slider from an image to actually having text on there aswell as the image as in its current state its completely useless to rank.
    name your images correctly with the right keywords also.
    You may also want to utilise the fact that you're giving away an ebook by taking emails and names for it and adding them to your mailing list to sell them more books from the niche.
    Have you submitted a proper site map?
