    Hi Guys,

    Fairly new website I put together. This is a Quicky I put together on Wix. It is an HTML5 site. I am shooting video and would like to add a blog that is linked to my sight (but not sure how to do that). Please give me some honest feedback on look, navigation ease and professionalism.

    On a side note, I have no idea how my site is ranked or how my keywords are working. I am paying main street marketing to optimise my site and boost my SEO rankings, but after 2 months I still can't find my site in native search results, other than what I have done by creating a profile on HOUZZ. Am I expecting too much to be seeing some results after only a couple of months?

    Lite, there is quite a bit of room for various improvements, but before jumping in to that, I'm glad you pointed out that you're using a marketing service. I have a variety of concerns based on this, what their role is, and what benefit you're actually receiving for your dollars.

    I'll post some thoughts for the benefit of you and others, but I'm going to PM you re: the marketing service aspect so that I have a better idea of what's going on. Cheers.

    Thanks for checking your search results. When I google it I don't see my site for several pages.

    I will let the experts comment on SEO. I love your logo and the pictures are very well done.

    I think it looks nice.

    I did not look at the source or the content much.

    As far as SEO goes, you just need to be tops in your area.

    Hmmm, that is troubling. I know the Wix flash sites are useless but I thought that would be remedied by using HTML5, guess not. What do I do, slip in some HTML code into the background so it's invisible on the site but google will pick it up?

    Wix, in their instructions I read somewhere, are banking on that Google may be now actually processing Javascript to read your content, but there is nothing guaranteed, and not worth putting all your eggs in one basket in terms of it.

    I did start a Wix Account to play with their editor a while back, however this month (well August) was extremely crazy for me, so I didn't get into it yet. So many side projects, so little time!
