1- your domain name is extremly long, it's hard for users to remember
2- the pages contain only text, very simple and ease the eyes of the users BUT there is no GRAPHIC DESIGN (logo, navigation, color palette, ...)
3- your data (i didn't read all the pages) are very helpfull, thank you for that

Hi:
The information is useful, but I find some things to comment:

1) The worst thing for me is the navigation, a normal user get lost in seconds.
You make some abuse of back buttons.
My suggestion is to make a permanent menu in all the pages, so users con go every page from everywhere in your site.

2) No design. Of course you can mantain your site simple, but at least a logo or any color would be apreciated.

Regards.

Here are some comments from one who's very good at getting lost. Yes, the name is long - but it is something people are very likely to type into a search-engine.
It's plain and basic - no bad thing with a site for people just looking for info in a businesslike way.
Two points against - the black and white at first glance looks like an error page - maybe that doesn't matter.
- I actually wandered straight off site into a link, and then ended up back here. Would it be wiser to have links further away from the main navigation, or else have them open separate windows, so we careless wanderers come back automatically?

This website is perfect for any webmaster. Keep it simple is the idea. Very easy to find things. An extra image and a bit of color wouldn't hurt. :-)

Hi Ricks, Thanks a lot for your review. As suggested by you, I will surely add permanent navigation menu to all the pages.


Will add a logo to, atleast that will also help me in the seo of my site.

Design extremely minimalist. I guess some graphics don't hurts.

Also (IMHO) your site is not much well optimized for Google, at least index page is too short, not much text, etc.

Don't take my as rude, but are you offering tips you pick from the web or tips that you test sucesfully yourself?

My suggestion (about optimizing your own site) is:

Add MUCH (but much) more content, not only on each page, but related information and related pages.

Sorry but I think you missed the boat here. I would create a navigation system first like a menu with a home link and tutorials link ect..

From there add a couple images or graphics to liven it up, you don't want your visitor falling asleep. lol

great information BTW good luck!

I actually kinda like the simple, text driven nature of the site. It's about the information, not the "thrills".

Honestly, I think that is a problem with domains and information any more... it get's so mired down in fluff that the real content can't be found or understood. I've been working really hard to keep my sites simple and clear (I call it Airy) in order to avoid the cluttered and difficult to locate information complex.

I found the information on this site VERY helpful and insightful. I also see that it is a .be site so this individual has make wise choices in building a very helpful site and driving traffic to a domain that didn't cost him anything to reg. VERY nice :)

So, I'm relatively happy with it. In some cases, the fluff isn't needed because the content is so much more valuable. THIS is one of those cases.

on the issue of content... let me pull the brakes.

Just increasing the content will do more harm than good. as a user, if i find a page with loads of text, i browse through it in 10 or less seconds. instead of just adding to the content, try restructuring the content you already have. if possible, multiply individual pages, sepparating then into topics.

A very appealing site and informated, however not much content unless you are a beginner and just building your first site. Maybe adding news feeds or more in depth information about what you do and where you do it. Also having multiple links to your site, like an affiliate program would help gain traffic down the road.

Hello Thunderstix, Thanks for your review.

well i myself do not want more content or in depth information because that I wanted to keep it simple for new webmasters who do not have any experience in seo before. Well, According to me adding more content and some seo tools will decrease the simplicity of the site and make it more complex for webmasters. what do you think, should i provide articles, seo news and seo tools like mata tag generator, meta tag analayser, robots.txt generator etc. ? I want some opinions on this.

Will add a about me page in that.

Thanks again for your review.

This site appears to have valuable info that I must take the time to read through very carefully and will. However, as many have already stated above I would definitely seriously consider logo and colors. Besides, without a logo how am I to give you an inbound link? :D Does look like quality content and I'll definitely spend some time with this material. Thank You!

I love your sites simplicity in its page organization. Everything is straightforward! You should add some graphics and validate your site (add the buttons, too) so people can rely on the info abit more. If possible add some color (if you plan to keep it with its' simplicity, just try making a colored background with tiling text, it just adds some movement to the site). Additionally, you should promote your site because I don't think there are alot out there that devotes it's purpose to this matter and this matter alone. Keeping these things in mind, I think you'll be a success with this site...keep up the great work!

excellent design - so simple, takes you straight to the content and also incorporates the adverts cleverly and simply.

only prob i can suggest is the page loading time / slow hosting ... which cut short my tour of your site so i can't comment further

The colors are nice. Information is useful. Design is simple. This is good, but no pictures, URL is too long. That is not so good. :)) Try making a simple forum there or get articles on the topic. Otherwise I dont think you'll get regular visitors.

I've always thought that as website designers we tend to put to much emphasis on the design and not enough on the contents.

IMO this is one of the best sites ive seen, why?

1. It does exactly what it promises, it doesn't flood me with tons of text or try to sell me anything, it gives me links, I click, I read, simple.

2. It loads quickly.

3. Its good for all skill levels, for the newbies they can get into SEO and this site gives them what they need all under one roof, for the advanced they can use this as a checklist to ensure they have covered everything.

4. The Tips are fantastic, having recently learned alot about SEO I was told alot of information (mostly incorrect) and I can honestly say this information and tips are some of the best around.

5. You practice what you preach, you have implemented all these tips within your own website (a respectable PR of 5!) so there would be no doubt in my mind that you are confident these tips work.

The site needs a better navigation and you need to add some visual aspects, if I was you I would still keep it simple but just add some colour and style things up abit.

As for the content on the main page why not write a simple and short introduction to what your websites all about, lets face it noone reads long pages of information, they scroll read so making it short and to the point will only help both you and the reader.

You should change the domain to something shorter, why not SEOtips.be?

Keep up the good work.

well as i said before, i don't think it loads quickly. anyway, now that i've taken a closer look, i recommend adding a detailed nav and keeping it there because it's easy to get lost in your site and when i'm not in control of my browsing experience i leave!

I am new to web design and SEO, but I did bookmark your site for further review. That I believe is something a webmaster would want.
You might consider using a little colour to highlight areas of interest, and as in previous posts, maybe a main menu for users convience.

good site, i think

I must congratualtes you. Your site is having the PR 4 for the homepage and PR 3 for most of the deep pages.
The site is simple and quick and very importantly helpful.
The suggestion is that add further pages but with usage of underscore instead of hyphen. Try to name like below
http://yourdomain.com/this_is_example.html
I have got good results using such naming as compared to
http://yourdomain.com/this-is-example.html

Rest is great. Best of Luck.

Another good seo tips website.

1. Good contents but should be designed for human read more than bots read.
2. Your adsense not blend as it should and its border colour makes me feeling bad, I don't wanna click those ads. even it's good.
The rest is ok. I bookmarked your site for further reference. keep your good work

I like the information, it is very helpful, where it lacks in graphics it makes up for in resources. As said you have to use the back button, even just as simple as putting all of the links in your footer would help optimize page browsing significantly

I'm sorry to say, that if i came to this site i would probably leave within 5 minutes if not less. The reasons are:

[list=]
[*]Very long url. not very easy to remember as many have said before me - Think about making this shorter
[*]No pictures, not very eye catching - Your customers like to look at something other than text usually to stop them getting bored
[*]The background colour makes the site look dull and gloomy, although this could be because there is so much of it - break this up with pictures and windows possibly
[/list]

All that said, there is some good content here but you will undoubtable lose potential traffic just by the look of your site. With a bit of work this could be a good information site.

2. Your adsense not blend as it should and its border colour makes me feeling bad, I don't wanna click those ads. even it's good.
The rest is ok. I bookmarked your site for further reference. keep your good work


Thanks sxperm for your review......... I will certainly consider you suggestions for the improvement of the site.

I like the information, it is very helpful, where it lacks in graphics it makes up for in resources. As said you have to use the back button, even just as simple as putting all of the links in your footer would help optimize page browsing significantly

Thanks a lot AandM Hosting for your review...... Will certainly consider adding links to the footer.....

This was mentioned before? For your adsense ads, remove the border and make the background match your site for better blending -> better CTR

Hello Severything,
Thanks a lot for your review. I will certainly take your suggestions into account while updating the site.

I'm sorry to say, that if i came to this site i would probably leave within 5 minutes if not less. The reasons are:

[*]Very long url. not very easy to remember as many have said before me - Think about making this shorter
[*]No pictures, not very eye catching - Your customers like to look at something other than text usually to stop them getting bored
[*]The background colour makes the site look dull and gloomy, although this could be because there is so much of it - break this up with pictures and windows possibly


All that said, there is some good content here but you will undoubtable lose potential traffic just by the look of your site. With a bit of work this could be a good information site.


Hello Mook25,
Thanks a lot for your review! Much appreciated.

I really like your website. It has something that a lot of websites don't have - good, useful, and original content. Thankyou for this. I am actually going to bookmark your site as I am looking for SEO advice. My two suggestions are a logo for appearance and a menu on each page for easier navigation.

For your link building tips popularity page I think the proper term that most SEO's use to describe the link text is: Anchor Text

<a href="mylink.html">This is Anchor Text</a>

I agree one of the earlier post about Adsense optimization.
- Remove the border
- Make the background same as your website's background

A lot of visitors suffer from Ad Blindness and to get around it you're going to have to optimize those ads so they blend into your content.

Great Content.

URL is MURDER. Too long.

The site is very informative. Problem is the barebones look could drive away your audience. If I want to learn from your tips, I'm most likely a designer, which means I have a visual mind. A designer would be more apt to explore a site with some design elements.

A serif font in your body copy may give a subconscious feel/look of reference and non-fiction. This helps when stating fact in copy. Gives a more formal feel to the material.

Overall - Informative, yet unpleasing to the eye.

The site is quiet informative and looks simple. It serves to all...from the beginners...to advanced users.
Instead of having a dull background, it could be better to have a bright one.
Atleast a logo/banner is recommended. The site serves a good purpose, so what's harm in marketing it ? Add some color to the site. It will look beautiful.

Design is very clear, maybe too clear. With more graphics the site may be better. But the site is doing what it should do, congratulations for this issue.

you sure do need some structure, content is pretty good, but if your going to be using adsense, or for any other reason you have the site up, you need direction, hmmmm
start out with a layout, get an idea from another good looking website that you like, and build something that people will remember your website by, not just content, although content rules the world of the wide web ;P

Simple can be a good thing however, the black text on gray background is rather drab and might be worth changing. Navigation should be the same on every page...otherwise it becomes necessary to use the 'back' button.

Overall, it is good and the information is pertinent. Just need to give it a little bit of life.

Throw a banner underneath everything on the first page. You could use some more content there too. Make the site look more well-developed and professional.

I think your site is very useful and I will be sure to bookmark it for future reference. I'm actually working on search engine optimizing my site to get better traffic flow, so this site was very helpful.

Like most others, I would have to say a little color and perhaps a banner wouldn't hurt. I'm a graphics designer, so my worst nightmare is a bland site... then again, I guess that would be a good thing? More business for me. :)

But all aside, great site!

Somehow an SEO site should be plain...otherwise it won't reflect it's teachings as graphics are a bit of a downer when it comes to SEO. Is there a more plain front page than that of Google? And SEO is about what Google likes....having second thoughts about my site now myself!

You seem to have gotten some pretty good feedback there :)

I thought the site was simple easy to use, was not 100% about the menu system away from the homepage. Long URL no problem to me, if its at the top of the search engines who acres what name you have :o

One other thing I thought your Google ads were a bit close to your menu - but hey, that may be by design :P
