Hello

Please take a moment to review my website. I am looking forward to all comments and suggestions. I have little experience in this realm and defer to those who know the profession.

My thoughts have been to keep my site clean simple and inviting. Don't hold back I would much rather hear the negatives now than not know what people are thinking.

Thank you for your input.

You literally came 1-2 pixels away from getting a 10/10 review from me.

1024 X 768 RES,
IE 6 & NS 7
56k dialup

IE looks great, everything is crisp and clean. If someone gets lost with the nav thiey're probably on a friends computer anyway :wink: . I like the combination of colors, maybe apply them to your form elements as well ?

NS shares the comments from above with one exception, the left nav has a 1-2 pixel drop on both sides of it, i'm thinking it's a padding issue.

Overall I give you a 9/10, great work.

Web design is very simple and friendly, looks like
alexa ranking is quite low. Probably use autosurf
sites to get your pages viewed, probably get some
links that will point back to you.

Same here, 9/10 on site design. Link popularity,
it's not time to rate yet? :)
Good luck,

What does this site do anyways? ;)

Thanks for the compliments. I know there is still more work ahead, as far as traffic I am not so concerned about that at this point I'm more interested in a good site to market.

My market is similar to a Lending Tree type of market. Mortgages, Auto Refinancing, and Insurance............you know the top three consumer expenses.

I am hopeful that my domain name is brandable. I like it more than others out there, for instance Loan Bus. We shall see.

Any and all comments welcome.

PS Moderators and Staff I really like this site, glad I found it (Google)

Nice looking site, loads easily and is easy to read.

On ther left hand nav bar, only some of the buttons turn to green text when you hover over with the mouse, shouldnt they all do this?

Well done

Might be becouse there is no visited:hover css element for thier links, visited color is set to black.
So if you visited a link, then noticed it that may be why.

I will be making some adjustments to the site shortly.
Look at my site as if it were your own and tell me what you would do differently and why.
I really want my site to be the best it can be. THANKS AGAIN

Design wise: it's fantastic. Crisp and clean, and I like the colors. The navigation at the bottom (Mortgages | Auto Refinancing | Insurance Quotes | Savings Tips | About Us | FAQ | Contact Us) is a little difficult to read--or maybe it's just my laptop--so you might want to get a few opinions on that, but it wouldn't hurt to go one shade darker.

Loading wise: loads fairly fast. You've got a lot of unnecessary nested tables, but it's not killing your loading time. It'd be a definite positive to get rid of as many as possible and use CSS instead (I know, I know, that's what I always say to EVERYONE. Shouganai!), but I leave that up to you as your site is already quite professional. If down the road you want to cut your DL time in half, try my recommendation. Email or PM me if you need assistance.

Great site. Looks very professional and respectable. Keep up the good work. 8/10.

gsv2com,

Thanks for taking the time to look, I will be making adjustments shortly. PaymentDoctor.com has been a collaborative project at my direction with some really wonderful people helping me.
I am not a webdesigner and if experienced designers were to rate my site as a 10 I would be shocked. I have possibly spent too much time on design and not enough on marketing.
Anyone that has some cost effective marketing ideas for me I would welcome them.
Once again thank you everyone and I am so glad I found this site. :D

the website looks really good for it's purpose, a good range of colours which are pleasing to the eye, a rating of 9/10 would be what i'd give it, as it really satisfies its purpose
