I launched my new web page today.
Please let me know what you guys think and let me know if I can make it easier or better.

It is not complete, I still have quite a bit left to work on.

Let me know what you think? www.mytakeacard.com

Thanks!
Artie

Artie I like it.

You should have another deal, get 3 and put one on the back of your car for only $X.00

The first thing I noticed was the very long load time. It took nearly 30 seconds to load completely and 23 before anything showed at all. 8 seconds should be the maximum for loading a web page.

After the images are in cache it loads a bit quicker but its first time viewers that you want to capture. You really need to resize and optimize your images.

I would also suggest very strongly that you don't use frames.

Mark,
How do you optimize and what is it?

I am the same way if a website does not open fast I will go to the next one.

I hope I can fix that.

Thanks!

Also I edited my post above to strongly suggest that you not use frames. It's outmoded and you mentioned that you wanted a stronger showing in page ranking. All google is going to see on your home page is http://mytakeacard.com/
Please click here to view the non-framed versi on.

Unless you expect someone to find your page using the keyword "versi on" then it's not going to be there. You'll have to hope that google latches onto a secondary page but it's your home page that should carry the most weight.

What made you decide to go with the horizontal menu with all those options?? I'd suggest going back to a vertical menu.
