Review My First Website

Hi Guys,

This is my first website www.fretspider.com

I have been marketing it mainly through facebook but also some guitar forums. It's basically an online guitar learning resource. I have had a few suggestions through facebook but i'd love to hear your opinions at affilorama!

Some things I am working on and are not quite done yet, ie i have recorded audio for each example in the lessons, just in the middle of embedding them in the pages, I plan to create learning videos which i can embed on each page. Many more plans in the pipeline, ie; more guitar course reviews, more subtle ads, newsletter series, carefully placed adsense ads. etc.

At the moment I'm doing it for the passion and not willing to comprimise visits by hard-selling at this stage.

Anyway, I just uploaded it last night so i really apreciate your thoughs and suggestions.

Cheers,
Dave

Looks like a good start, Dave.

Just from a web designer's perspective, I would add some padding to the "table" down at the bottom. It will make it more visually appealing, and, thus, easier on the eyes to read. Probably wouldn't hurt in the "content" area, either.

Also, usually with content, most people expect it left justified. The centering is fine for headings or small snippets (such as what you have at the top), though.

Looks like a good start. I'll have to let others tell you how it looks from an IM standpoint, but those would be my suggestions from a general design perspective.

Hey Grady,

Thanks for the tips! Padding those tables is on my list of things to do, guess I've been procrastinating it a little bit.

The center alligned text is only on the home page, everything else is left alligned, but, you're right, It would be easier on the eyes if the homepage content was left alligned too, so i'll change that.

Cheers,
Dave
