    Default Site Review

    Please review my site and blog... the idea is to keep the blog fresh so as to feed the site that is fairly static.

    The portal is real eye-catching.....

    The logo on the blog is kinda cool the way it slides in with every change...

    Wow! You have put a lot of effort into both of the sites.
    The blog is really cool and I like the fact that you have a pirate theme running throughout. Very nice touch and different to the normal blogs.
    I also liked your main website - especially the navigation effect - looks good. loads quickly and easy to navigate.
    You have managed to do enough text to keep the search engines happy and remain easy to the human eye. Its often very hard to get the balance right, but you certainly have managed that.
    I only have one suggestion : I liked your USA Casinos page, but perhaps it is a little bit too long. It may benefit you by splitting it up into a few pages and you could always put different descriptions on each page to get the benefit of additional pages being exposed to the search engines. Just a thought though, but Well Done - Overall - 2 very good looking sites

    Wow is right,

    I am not a real blog person nor do i have enough experience with them to know when they are of great quality.

    But:

    When Top Boss gives it such a good mark!! I would trust her judgement.

    I certainly would and she would be one of the first i go to for any review of a casino site..

    Thanks, yes I will either cut down length of pages or make into multiple pages once all the tweeking is done. The theme is part of the overall branding effort as Google is looking away from keyword domains and leaning towards branding... so I hear. So far the site is being indexed in 24 hours
    and the posts same day.

    Honestly, I prefer you blog's skin than your portal. Though it's already known that you can customized more with your blog but it would be better for your portal to have the same features.

    I like the flash slide in your blog by the way.

    the blogger was a converted wordpress and the site was a template but if i come across a site that looks like a blog i would have to figure out if it can be done on 0 budget.

    looking for pics for the slider, any ideas where to get casino pics?

    Thanks for your kind words Steve - However I must admit that I am quite embarressed about my own sites because simply put - I am no web designer!!!
    I know how it should be done and am quick to give advice on how it should be done, but I'm afraid I have never asked for reviews of my own sites because I know I will be too depressed with the responses I receive as my sites probably break every rule in the book...however one thing I can say is that there is no black hat techniques and everything is written from the heart - no fancy frills and stuff.
    I now employ web designers so my newer sites are more professional but sad to say my old sites are laughable to say the least!!!!

    Default Site Review

    Thanks for comments... the site is a bit hard to maintain so I rolled out a different looking site at http://vegastreasurechest.net that will replace the .com site... any new comments are welcome.

    The new site has some new design features... page-peel, popup tags balloon, floating menu, slide show, captcha forms control, built in blog and news rss (no wordpress needed) and a host of others.
