    You might be ranking well for some keywords, but its best to have the content available for google crawler to read.
    Trust me you will get better rank for lots of content and services you offer.
    Another thing you might consider is data.
    Flash takes longer to load, so if some one is having bad connection, they might not be able to load your page= potential loss sale.

    Website goal is to create simple, organize, and speedy site = Elegant sites
    if you can achieve that experience with a potential customer you might get some calls from them.

    You should look at the code again and then you'll understand why this is.

    Good info, thanks. I did target specific key words on my site.

    Is it is possible to convert a flash site to HTML or HTML5?

    yes sir, but it is more expensive than just to get a nice different layout.

    use wordpress to develope your site look in to that.

    wordpress=free

    any <style> tags in a website body is bad no matter why its there.

    you can create style sheets and link them in the header.
    I build websites optimize for seo

    the site looks good clean but the source code is sloppy.

    if you use wordpress instead of webby than you don't have to worry about sloppy code.

    You've established that you've "built websites optimize for SEO", but your solution is to not work with the problem, or recommend viable solutions, but to just tell people to switch to Wordpress and redevelop their sites? Seems reasonable enough...

    If someone is using a DIY builder, it's highly likely it's because they don't have the skill or time to build a site from scratch. I'm sorry, but "use wordpress to develope your site look in to that." is not typically realistic advice to follow.

    Good timing... This is exactly the kind of thing I was addressing with my previous reply.

    I will admit I am clueless when it comes to website building, drag and drop is the only way i can create a website. I don't have the time or the funds to pay someone to build one from scratch at the moment, this is a part time job for me. I still work a 40hr/week job and haven't gotten the business to sustain itself yet, but this will be my 2nd year and I want to get my name out there and give customers somewhere to look to get more information than I can get on a door hanger or postcard.

    Website creation is not hard, wordpress is a php script pretty much some one build a working content management system and put it out online for free.

    many hosting providers already have an installation guide pre-built.

    you can keep any look you want, if you pay some one.

    i may not tell you how to build install , and design with WordPress, but i am saying the information is already online and if you want it you can have it.

    Not going to post a tutorial on here since millions of people already did, search google, youtube

    HOW TO BUILD A WEBSITE WITH WORDPRESS.

    simple enough?

    I hope you guys take my advice , i will built many websites soon so you guys can see them and maybe help you with ideas
