critique my site

www.mjservicesofbernville.webs.com


Here's something I threw together quick the other night. It's from a free web hosting site. It's pretty basic, but it's better than not having anything. I don't think Google has it indexed yet and I have no idea how to make that happen faster. Any thoughts? If you Google me, nothing comes up.

I think you're off to a good start. I would add some pictures of the work you have done, customers seem to like that. I'm not a website builder so that's where my advice ends. But keep up the good work!

thanks, I have a section for photos, but I screwed up this year. I didn't exactly TAKE any pics of my work. I took a few in the Spring then sorta forgot about it. And the ones I do have aren't worth putting up. Thanks!!

My best advice is get off the free website builder. You will have a hard time getting it to rank within your location, also I heard transferring these type of domains can be painful. Before you start printing them on T-Shirts, business cards, etc go purchase your own domain and use there website builder! This will save you money in the long haul.

IMO I think web address that are similar to your have no creditability! Would you purchase something from a website that had two (dots) in the URL?

- Hit GoDaddy or some other registrar and get a proper domain name.

- Sign up with the Google and Bing's respective Webmaster Tools, create a site map and submit it.

- Read through previous review requests on here and you will see quite a few links to SEO information and guides (Google's Search Engine Optimization Starter Guide).

ok I'll check out a legit hosting place. Paying for a website isn't in the budget this year though. That's why I went the free route. I'm not a big enough operation to justify having a "real" website yet. Thanks for your replies i'll check out that guide

If you don't have money to pay a developer to do it, at least get a domain name as Tony suggested like $10/year. There's lots of low cost options.

Also if you look over the forum you can see lots of free stuff you can do, google places, facebook etc. You can visit sites like mine and create links to your website.

Good luck,
Phil
