Hi folks, I've posted here a few times as I got my pips program under way, and I have a question thats been irking at me for months.
I have a review website, you can see it at w dot wealth matrix review dot com, its under de/construction at the moment. I've used a template for the website that makes a colored background to the text and to the overall look of the site.
Now, personnaly I chose it because I like it, and I enjoy visiting sites that are more than just black text on white, so here's the Q.

All the uber professional sites I see are plain black text on white background, with a minimum of color in the title/name area.
Does this attract customers better, look slicker, perform better, look more conservative ( a look I want for my site), etc etc.

Is it just better business to avoid making sites with a colored background to them?

It is easier to blend adsense with b/w. Blending with color has been almost not possible.

Thanks, I'm just as interested to know what you prefer as much as what works best.

Hi Rog,

What the professionals did, simply copy them. The reason why it works because it appeals to the general public. I did the exact same thing (as you can see on my website - link at bottom) and I'm getting results! That page has been up for, how long? 2 weeks TOPS. I have got 9 subscribers so far.

So I can say that yes, what they're doing does work and it does perform better in comparison to what we come up with ourselves.

Of course, I had a mentor to guide me in that page. You should get one too! I'm sure there are tons of Kiwi Warriors!
