I've created a new web directory website called http://www.allthewebmasters.com
Could you give me some feedback on the layout, design, colors and time loading. Thanks very much!

pretty nice and simple. Straight forward, easy to navigate on main. very nice.

ok on categories...here's a suggestion:
how about under internet u add web design ?
Also portfolios? that would be nice. lots of that these days including mine 8)

what about if a site is both web design and developement and graphic designs?

That pushes u to choose just one. I guess there isn't a way around it.

I like it ! Nice colours, everyting seems to work fine. I would only add display: block; rule to the menu links.

But all in all good job :)

Heh Heh, I could think of a couple slogans for this (All the kings horses and all the webmasters...) which is pretty cool. I submitted my site but telling your users to show your ads might turn them off. You may want to add a technology category, particularly if your advertising in forums. Its a good start to a nice idea.

Hi not bad I added myself so I went through the process. Could be interesting to have an area where someone can select other for categories.

Well, I mean that in the left menu the whole "cell" is hovered but only the text is a link. In my opinion, it would be better if the whole cell would hover and in addition the whole cell would be a link.
----
I've just looked into source of the page so I will give an example

That :
Code: [ Select ]
<tr>
<td onMouseover="this.bgColor='#C0C0C0'" onMouseout="this.bgColor='#FFFFFF'" style="border-bottom: 1px solid #B5B6BB">
    <a href="http://www.allthewebmasters.com/1_Arts_&_Humanities.shtml" class="leftmenu" ><img alt="Arts & Humanities" src="http://www.allthewebmasters.com/cgi-bin/images/arrow3.gif" border="0">Arts & Humanities</a>
</TD>
</TR>
  1. <tr>
  2. <td onMouseover="this.bgColor='#C0C0C0'" onMouseout="this.bgColor='#FFFFFF'" style="border-bottom: 1px solid #B5B6BB">
  3.     <a href="http://www.allthewebmasters.com/1_Arts_&_Humanities.shtml" class="leftmenu" ><img alt="Arts & Humanities" src="http://www.allthewebmasters.com/cgi-bin/images/arrow3.gif" border="0">Arts & Humanities</a>
  4. </TD>
  5. </TR>

and all such fragments which are items in the menu you could change into:

Code: [ Select ]
<tr>
<td style="border-bottom: 1px solid #B5B6BB">
    <a href="http://www.allthewebmasters.com/1_Arts_&_Humanities.shtml" class="leftmenu" style="display: block; width: 100%;">
<img alt="Arts & Humanities" src="http://www.allthewebmasters.com/cgi-bin/images/arrow3.gif" border="0">Arts & Humanities</a>
</TD>
</TR>
  1. <tr>
  2. <td style="border-bottom: 1px solid #B5B6BB">
  3.     <a href="http://www.allthewebmasters.com/1_Arts_&_Humanities.shtml" class="leftmenu" style="display: block; width: 100%;">
  4. <img alt="Arts & Humanities" src="http://www.allthewebmasters.com/cgi-bin/images/arrow3.gif" border="0">Arts & Humanities</a>
  5. </TD>
  6. </TR>


(notice style ) and also in that way I should add to your CSS definition sth like that:

Code: [ Select ]
td a
{
  background-color: #FFF;
}
td a:hover
{
  background-color: #C0C0C0;
}
  1. td a
  2. {
  3.   background-color: #FFF;
  4. }
  5. td a:hover
  6. {
  7.   background-color: #C0C0C0;
  8. }

But if you have more than one table, add id to your table, and write in css


Code: [ Select ]
table#yourIdName td a
{
  background-color: #FFF;
}
table#yourIdName td a:hover
{
  background-color: #C0C0C0;
}
  1. table#yourIdName td a
  2. {
  3.   background-color: #FFF;
  4. }
  5. table#yourIdName td a:hover
  6. {
  7.   background-color: #C0C0C0;
  8. }


And what I've just noticed - you should add border-top to the first item (which is link) in the menu...

Hey, great job w/ the directory - looks very professional. Did you develop the derectory yourself or are you running software for it? If so, which one ?

hi there, overall great idea and good performance. I would change couple things though:

1) at the bottom you have site navigation that i would put to the top. I refer to Index Page | New Links | Editor Picks | Hot Links | Add a Link | Modify a Link
But best solution would be to have this navigation at the top AND bottom

2) In this navigation and at the very end of your page you have HOME and INDEX PAGE. First i would change titles to something like Webmaster Directory or just Directory and second i would change link from /index.html to simple / See for google yoursite.com and yoursite.com/index.html are two different pages, which turn out to be the same on your site and you might face duplicated content problem

Hope this helps.

it scrolls a little bit at 1280 x 1024, cut off some of the site at the bottom. I don't know what the "!" on the icons mean. Color scheme is ok.

Wow, it's almost perfect to my eyes! Well done. But there are a few things I would like to mention.

1. Maybe the buttons at the top, should change when you put your cursor over them.

2. I do not like your process of adding a website (Even though I added mine! :) ).

3. It's great!

Maybe offer some free samples so people could see how good they are. Thats a pretty big price. I wouldnt pay unless I know what Im buying is good.

Looks great but as far as SEO;

Quote:
<META name="Keywords" content="AllTheWebmasters, web directory, Arts-Humanities,Home-Family,Real Estate,Directories,Automotive,House-Garden,Directorie,Business,Health,Science,Careers,Internet,Shopping,Education,Lifestyle-Relationships,Society-Culture,Entertainment-Media,World,Sports,Travel-Vacation,Kids-Teens">


I would suggest that the header tags/description change per page as this should boost relavance for search engines and help out so as under Jewelry>theme the page description was related to jewelry>theme.

I think, it take long time to download..
moreover there needs to be some more sub categories topics in few main categories like in Health, I want to add my herbal related site but in which category should i insert that..

other than that, site's design is nice and sober.

I think there are quite a lot of sub-categories in the Health categorie? What category would you suggest?
