After months of thinking and getting advice from this forum I changed my homepage again this is the 4th time. People said it looked outdated so I changed it to look more like the competition.

Older people seem to like the old home page while my nieces love the new home page and hated the old one. only problem I went from page one position 1 to position 3. So I added in a box with the article in it that got me to position 1 in the first place and now I am back to position 2.

However I think my home page is too busy that's why I never liked home pages like this. Do you think it is too buys should I go down from 6 pictures with articles on them to 4 and maybe change how they are on the page. The url is myitaliantravels dot com

    Forget random opinions, they will drive you nuts.
    Design/build according to your target audience.
    Who is your potential customer? Age group? Income? Country?
    What browsers? What OS? What is the problem? (your solving).
    All these little details can help you narrow down your target. (there's many more).
    There's no such thing as "everyone", every site has a target audience/customer, even generic sites.
    Above and beyond design, speed and good copy are paramount.

    Indeed, you can't please everyone. Just try to focus on appealing to your target audience for the best possible results.

    can't believe that out of 113 views I could only get 4 opinions.

      That's because many people are seeking the same answer, and the 4 answers summed it all up.

    It looks ok to me in terms pictures, so I wouldn't change it. Notice however - you have a problem with your Subscribe to our Newsletter block - sign up button is invisible and text is not scrollable vertically.

      Thanks Velant, could I ask what browser you used because I have had many friends look at my site since your comment and no one has had any problem seeing the sigh up box or the text in it. I checked it myself as well but some of my friends use mac's so i wanted to check as many ways as I could. Mark
