    OK, I have been working on this site and would like others to take an open look at it.

    las-vegas-drunk-driving-attorney0com

    There are a few bits of coding I have done that I really like
    1: weather is pulled in from yahoo with php and uses my own images
    2: the "free traffic report" is pulled in from lvmpd0com using php

    So what I want to know is, Is there any onsite optimization I am over looking or am I doing anything that could/would hurt the site?


    Thanks!

    I do know the one thing I need is more content. . . using fiverr to get content for the kewwords is going to take about $150 so I am adding about a page a week.

    And well let me know how it is. . . . and any pointers would be great!

    It appears that whomever wrote the landing page content is not from the US (bad grammar, missing words, misspellings).
    Types of violations are incorrect.
    I wouldn't use a gmail address for the contact information.

    I would make the image in the header a bit smaller.

    Also on the bottom of the page, what's the "56 queries in 0.588 seconds." ?

    The site looks great but the content sucks. You need to get a native english writer. 99.9% of people will hit the back button in 0.2 seconds even if you manage to get the number one spot in G. Good looking site, just get a real writer and you are in business.

    wow... sorry - the domain name is Rubbish!

    It means - visit this website and you will know more about an attorney from Las Vegas who likes driving NOT sober :eek:

    this can kill the business an ruin the name of the company

    ---

    other bad thing about this domain:
    1) it is too long
    2) it contains dashes
    3) contains more than 2 words

    Home Page:
    The header image should show the lawyers, their office (reliability).. nothing abstract like <thinking people>

    ---

    Another easy part - about metas (meta tags)
    (i am reviewing only bad bits - everything else feels fine)

    Description meta tag is too long.
    Tag contains 362 characters. This is too many. The maximum number of characters should be 200.

    Keywords: Keywords meta tag is too long.
    This tag contains 813 characters. This is too many as well. The max # is 500.

    Home Page:
    the last 2 things (will not go further)

    1) on the top part publish Company name in H2 tags and underneath that post full address (after visiting website client has to remember the name of the company)

    2) In text - first lines have to address the client directly, for example, have you been caught drink driving? have failed to appear in court? and similar..

    make it more personal - this is not a niche site to get clicks on adsense ads ;)

    good luck :)

    That is something I just put there so I can see the load time of the site.

    grammar: I have been meaning to go over it and have a second eye on it.
    violations: I saw that, thinking of rewording that so I dont have to change to much.
    email: is that for user base or seo? It would not be hard to set it up I just never thought users cared that much about it. Do you think the everyday user does?

    Yeah, I started out just wanting to make it a design project, then started adding content in.

    Now I am going to use it as testing for ranks.

    Thinking of just paying someone to go over all the pages and fix any problems they see.

    Thanks, I see where making it a lot more personal would do a lot of good.
    Its a little hard to do this when I dont really have an attorney to make it about.

    But I will make a few changes to have the site more personal so when I hand the site off it is not so blank.

    An I really like your idea about the header text.
