Website Review Request!
I have my site up and still working on it, can you please take a look and let me know if their is anything I can change. I'm also having problems with the forms section. I used front page 2000 and I'm with Godaddy.com. You can find the link http://www.assisting-u-today.com Thanks in advance. BTW I landed my firs client today. I was looking for a par-time job and it turned into an opportunity for me. Not the fee I would have liked. But this lady does alot of conventions and deal alot with people coming to Las Vegas to gamble and have connections with some of the major casinos. I will also be working out of her office about 3 to 4 days a week and about 4-5 hours those days, leaving me with afternoons free to land other client. She wanted a personal assistant. Again thank you inadvance for any advice you can give on the site.

Hi Michelle,
I really love the pic of Vegas Looks great and has nice energy - your title and tagline don't really remain on every page throughout the site which would be nice (for continuity.)

It's really smart that you added the bookmarking links to the top of your page - in order that they blend more easily with the rest of the layout though you might want to try centering them up under the Vegas pic.

One thing I don't understand is why you've got a link in your menu called 'forms' that takes them to a contact form/service request form and *another* link with your contact info ('contact'). I think for the sake of ease of use I'd have both the contact info and the form on one page 'contact'. (Also, see if you can center your submit and reset buttons beneath the form, rather than left justified)

And don't forget to give each of your pages SEO friendly page titles and image tags(check the SEO section of the forums for more info on that.)

I hope that helps!

I love the colors and the photo of Las Vegas!

The photo of Vegas was a little slow to load and I can see that the original is still a whopping 2700 px X 2030 px (1551 KB). Even though it's resized in your coding, it still has to load the original large image. You should resize it in a graphics program

My only other suggestion is to maybe revamp your navigation a bit. The first page is fine, but when you're on subsequent pages, you have to scroll to the bottom to see a navigation bar that is similar to that on the upper area of the first page. I see that you have a sub-menu on the services page, perhaps you might consider an overall dropdown menu?

Kudos for having a site-map and showing hours of operation.

Here are a few typos I noticed:

Each day more and more business owners are finding that the extra time they need to handle their bookkeeping, secretarial and administrative duties are [is] non existent or they simply cannot do it all on their own.

Partnering with a Virtual Assistant that specializes in business support will provide you with all of [the] same functions of a full-time employee,...

Office Administration is the foundation to [of] any new and existing business, with bookkeeping being the most important.

With location permitting I can come to your office for all clerical and organization duties, location permitting.


There is not a strike-through function, so I used the underline.

Just fix the typos and your on your way! Good job.
