    The page loading speed is normal.

    My suggestions are:

    1. Can you use a better background for slider? Current blue background (that one with lines across it) is not that good looking, it creates strain for the eyes while reading slider content.

    2. If you can give a seperate background to the top menu (black may be good) it will look more attractive. Currently it is using same background of the slider.

    3. You can use better images for slider content. Since that is the area which gets most viewer attention you have to spend some time optimizing it

    4. The design of footer can be made better.

    5. You can add testimonials to home page, currently it is only saying "Read what our customers said".

    Overall a nice and clean layout, but tweaking some thing will make it much better

    I agree with Rojish Roy, the slider background needs to be a little less busy, the footer needs to be centered. I like the images but they look too low res, I would use higher res versions and the slider should resize if needed.

    I would also get a few 'free tip' like articles in there with social bookmarking to help wth SEO etc.

    The combination of Black and white color is not looking very good. If you could change to sky, pink or something light color then it may be more attractive.

    It looks good for the most part - I would suggest fixing the links in your header section though. They're currently blue + underlined. Use some css and get them looking nicer. Apart from that, I quite like it!

      Here are a few easy things you can do to speed your site up:

      1) Optimize your images to reduce file sizes to the bare minimum without loss of quality

      2) Serve compressed scripts and html files (your webhost can help with this. In HostGator's control panel) its a one time point and click setup that will dramatically improve site speed.

      3) Move your scripts to the bottom of your website template (or theme) just before the closing body tag.
      thanks for your tips

    I think that the page loading speed remains a bit slow. And it is strange to load first the green color and then the background is black.

    Apart from that I like the site, Good luck!

    speed was fine;
    do you really want the feedback/comments in the top left/highest property value portion of your site? i like how it works, but i think it would be better placed elsewhere on the site.

    much of your site layout feels professional; footer, as others have stated, is clunky.

    i liked the sample post layout, esp. where/how the author information was placed and the social media buttons.

    hope that helps!

    best,
    gz

    Site is fast as hell. Page load time: 0.23s

    Problem with the site, is that there is no clean call to action.

    I'm not sure what you offer, how to order, and what it costs.

    Make the slides more about pricing, and "click here to buy" or "click here for prices" etc

    I highly suggest making your slide images "price charts" that are clickable, and make them link to price graphs and order information.

    Make it DEAD EASY for visitors to order your services

    I ran the site on chrome.

    It loaded fast. On the whole it is a site that is pretty professional looking. The engagement (content) is pretty succinct and interesting too. Here are my suggestions:

    1. Its interesting how you've merged the header, nav and slider. I would however seek to make these elements more clear as the eye has to explore this area to know whats going on when in fact... it should be clear. All but one slider image is dark. I think the dark one works great with this particular background, because the rest look to be floating on top rather than having that seamless look.

    2. I would consider differentiating the colour of the buy now button as it looks like the learn more buttons hence doesn't lead the audiences to buy effectively enough.

    3. Where that link is then has a white bar with 3 benefits. It has split your heading from the services below it. I would move the white benefits bar below the list of services at it would sit much better below the explanation of services.

    4. 3 of the 4 icons in your services look fine but the extreme wiki attack one looks odd because it has a black BG. Keep it consistent. Either all transparent or all black. I like your transparent ones.

    5. At the bottom you explain the nature of your service. I would move this intro and replace it with the 3 benefit white bar (as explained bring that below your list of services).

    5. Replace the rotating images (beside the intro) with a static one (If you decide to move it up). Your slider creates movement. Anymore would be excessive. If you do replace it, replace it with a square image. with the exception of the sliding banners, the rest fit within a square ratio and this maintains an easy to read tidy look.

    6. Your verifications graphics at the bottom seem to big BUT that may be because Im looking at the site on a 11" laptop screen. But this is by no means critical.

    On the whole, the look is good, and most importantly your content is king!

    The loading speed is pretty normal. I guess taking a lot of the bloated things out would speed it up. I suggest getting the SEOMoz toolbar for FireFox so that you can keep tweaking things and test it easier.

    The site is loading just fine, but you can consider a few things. You can try add a video in the slider not just images and I thing that there should be some more content inside some of the slider posts or you can change the size of it. Also try to change the slider background image with something without lines just to check out how it looks and finally try to add some text in the footer like links to the other pages, facebook page link, twitter profile link and a small contact form for custom quotes.
