    Hi guys, I haven't been active for a while, however, I'd like to approach something different and was wondering if the guys who are seeing results with white-hat SEO can give me some specific advice on on-page stuff to fix for the following website: https://travelstart.co.za

    I'm looking for any major errors or anything that can be improved (please be specific though), not looking for "Build more links" answers :)

    Thanks :)

    The problem with travel is how do you show pages for flights from Seattle to Yerevan in an SEO context... crack that nut and you will be 10 steps ahead of most of your competitors. (I mean in general... not specifically Seattle to Yerevan)

    IMO landing page needs improvement. It all looks so packed. Try spacing out header and footer from main body.

    As a web designer, I fully agree with the previous post. Space everything out much more.

    The navigation bar that includes the links to product services, blog etc could go under the main navigation with less emphasis and then centre the search bar in the centre of the page. Try to make the search fields line up with each other, looks messy at the moment.

    The hotels section has a different theme. You should try and keep the design consistent across all the pages.

    Is this an Expedia affiliate website? Are you using a theme?

    Thanks for the responses guys, however, I'm interested in SEO related stuff, not the design itself.

    Please give me some specific SEO on-page issues you see, or anything that can be improved regarding SEO.
