What is your opinion?

I am always looking for ways to make my website better. Take a look at it and let me know what you think.

I know it needs more variety in pictures and more testimonials. I re-vamped my site in the fall, so I was out of season for those great pictures. Also, I had 10 people tell me they'd give me testimonials, and I got 2 back. I have to start knocking on doors for them.

Also, what do your websites look like? Post them too.

Most sites, the average person sees nothing wrong with it,
and perhaps from the surface everything looks fine.

But I look a whole lot deeper ...

If it makes you feel any better most sites look like that, even Yahoo and
Microsoft and hired folks who are into optimizing turn out that kind of crap.
So those results do not surprise me at all.

Here's mine:

That's just the code part, I didn't cover load times.

I have about 15% of my customers pay online. The website is great. I get a lot of work from it and all of the customers that get me from the website like to pay online. I send them a bill via email and they usually pay within a day or so.
