Hello,

Just started my site 1 year ago and I have made more changes on it, especially is colors and layouts.

The site is: http://www.internetmarketingstar.com

What do you think about its colors, does it have too many colors and how about the layouts?

Your comments are greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

    Site looks good and well organized, you can use more colors on your site because its in advertising niche.

    I tried to analyze your site and its getting good traffic. Good job!

    I think the colors do not compliment one another. If you chose to use bright colors, make sure it's only all bright colors. If you chose light or pastel, all have to be pastel colors only.

    I think it looks normal, the problem is obviously not with many colors) It is more about the web itself))

    I think it looks reasonably nice, but I'd make the icons more clean and crisp.

    Your site is looking good . As a graphics designer i think you should use the orange color on every headline background . Now Headline background have different colors . It is not looks so good . This is just a suggestion from mine .

      I am a bit more agree with this idea, beside, you can create some images for some special categories that you want to promote, so make them stronger under visitors' eyes.

  • After a detailed review your site (Internet Marketing Star - Online Advertising Forums) here are my opinion:

    This website has not too many colors but used colors are contradicting each. Here we need it because it is matching with website logo color.
    Website layout is awesome and looks very professional. Login or Signup part is opening in top of page. If you can change the text color in white it will look much better. Just my suggestion
    Website is responsive. Navigation bar's drop-down is working properly.
    Search Box is hiding inside Quick Menu. It should be in navigation bar or page. Otherwise visitor needs to find the search box to search something inside the website.
    Below navigation bar page is divided in two part inside a container. (a) For website content. (b) For Advertisement.
    Tabs are working properly. Its have very good navigation option to adjust itself.
    Inside Tab link are working in same page.
    There are many fount main heading on home page, inside it there are many link with description. Interesting thing is that every link have an unique icon for it. That is good.
    Footer is inside an container-fluid. There is a description of website in headed with "Internet Marketing Star". Its description ends with join today! hyperlink that goes to same page of "REGISTER HERE - JOIN US FOR FREE".
    Its registration page is good but seems fade in comparison of website.
    Lastly I would like to add that visitor will have to concentrate and focus on website to get relevant information.

    Overall it is great site.
    Hope that helps. Good luck

    I'm not a designer but I work online since 1994... so I will give you my opinion.

    Above the fold, it looks great, very professionnal.

    But yes I think there is too much colors. The dominant colors of your website must match the colors of your logo. The sections Buy, Sell or Trade and Web*Design and Developement, and Internet Marketing Star should be orange as the section Internet Marketing.

    This will give a greater sense of coherence.

    I like it, the colors are fine and the layout looks pretty organized and cool. Maybe you can add better ads, that's the only thing I don't like, the design is too good for those low resolution ads

    Looks like a normal website to me. The colors aren't that overwhelming like what you're asking. The website just looks a bit cluttered and kind of dull.

    I really like it! But you do know that all designers think different and something that is beautiful to you doesn't have to be beautiful to them. I for example, like clean design with not many different colors. So-yes, I think your site is cool.

    looks good but I agree that it looks cluttered. Specifically when in a thread it shows to many old, new and related threads

    Your site is really nice mate. The whole layout is great. Over all site looks great except your main theme color that is orange and black, it should be shown shown mostly on the site along with the other colors.

      Thanks John.

      It was a long time and I still keep same colors on our site.
      Because I read reviews on this thread and realize that more people are still liking it.
