First, your site doesn’t validate. You may say “who cares?” and that would be your perfect right 🙂 However, a validating site has more chance to load quickly and be properly rendered on most browsers. One common error is that you are using
<br>but your DTD declares your site as XHTML transitional. You should be using
<br />. You also have a few unclosed divs.
Your ads by google appear to also be playing havock with your validation.
You need more content. The site is bare 🙁
The overall feel right now is just that, a bit bare. I often tell people their sites are too busy, but this one errs on the opposite end, just a wee bit too simple. in fact, as it stands, it appears to be a vehicle for the Google ads more than anything else.
Sorry to be blunt. I’m sure that when you have more content in there, it’ll feel much better.
Very plain, and not really very “manly” (for lack of a better word)…
Content will be a big thing, as you develop over time… but if the site’s look isn’t interesting enough, no one’s going to read your content.
Thank’s all for your comments 🙂
as i mentioned (no content –> site just launched)
and i just fixed all errors , so the site is now valid 🙂
what do you suggest to make the site look better ?
I’m not sure – I don’t think I’d be going with a fluid width though, not for this. I’d make the width like, 750 or something.
I’d also use a lot more black, and maybe some red/orangey stuff. Flames, rebar, I dunno… Just make it more masculine… More “tough guy” – right now, it looks like a fan site for the dude on the right… whoever he is.
try “blending” the ads into your site 😀 and keep on putting more content daily, you can try tag and ping, article marketing, unique content works for me 🙂
