My new website for small business SEO is now live - www.peachyseo.co.uk
It's designed to stand out and appeal to small businesses.
I'd be really grateful if you could go through this with a fine toothcomb and tell me what you think? Does it appeal to a small business? Does it stand out from the crowd? Any and all opinions welcome.

The site looks quite nice, but a few things to consider:
- your background image takes ages to load (1.7 MB!) which looks awful and isn't good for SEO, I believe, and is cruel to mobile users, so it needs to be optimised.
- the header section is the critical place to grab your visitors, yet it's filled with tiny text that slides off the page before users can realistically read it.
- The eye then falls on the contact boxes ... but why would anyone contact you if they don't have a good idea of what you're about?
- The next section asks me to recommend a friend ... but why would I when I still don't know anything about you? The text is also quite hard to read.
- Finally, way down the page, I find some info about the company ... but personally, I find that stark white text on a dark background
too 'contrasty' and painful to read, so I'm not inclined to.
Just a few small observations.

Cheers ralph, all taken on board.
Yeah, the peach image has been an issue of mine for a while and it's something being addressed. Luckily, the site is responsive so anyone who visits on a mobile site will get a "mobile friendly" version of the site.
P.S - lovely removal of potential anchor text in the first post

The problem with responsive CSS is that quite a few devices download even bg images even if they don't use them, so make sure to optimise no matter what.
The forum is no-follow anyway, so tactics like that have no value, so it's better just to keep things clean (as opposed to 'SEOy').

that's very nice DESIGN,.. but as mentioned above, your website still to slow to load. CMIIW.

No-follow means that Google doesn't carry link juice. It doesn't mean Google ignores their existence. But still, point taken
I'm going to get the image reduced I think. Thanks for the input guys. Anything else?

nice but...first all the slides in your top slider downloaded & displayed for me vertically. Once they all loaded they then jumped back up and were as normal slides.
so the rest of the website jumping back up might make the user wonder for a moment if they got redirected w/out their consent.
I am also wondering about those big orange blocks with the leaves that display the links at the top bar as active. With the leaves there the first thing that popped into my mind is that it was meant to be the image of a peach but only the block loaded.
Lastly the smaller white text on lime/green/yellow. might be not as visible/easy on they eyes as you'd like.
But other wise a very nice page.

Over all site is looking good, I suggest you to change background colors if possible.

site is looking nice, but its too slow to load, so avoid this such type of loading issue.

Website looks visually appealing, my only criticism is perhaps not sufficiently prominent main business, i would add some bombastic header saying :" we are best choice for small business seo " or something even more pompously , also the newsfeed page needs to be filled with more content , but all in all it looks good

Website looks good but still require to make better color combination.

The site looks very nice, I like it, but need too much time to load page.
johnlarase — 2013-08-08T01:49:13-04:00 — #13
I think the loading issue is now fixed. I can load the whole page right away (I'm not on a high-speed internet connection).

I really like one page websites as it breaks the monotony of loading new pages but I do not like the fonts you used for Top Menu. I also would have jazzed up the contact form used there. If you done some successfull seo campaigns then it would be great to highlight the time frame in which it was achieved, and more details in that regard like when we show our web design portfolio, then we add what technologies were used etc.
Error Messages like "Please fill the required field." are all over the place when I clicked on Click to Submit button in SAY HELLO TO US form. Moreover input boxes were not aligned after clicking Submit button. I am using FF 21.
In am not sure whether I would recommend a friend until I haven't used your service so you might want to put that in footer.
As for the footer itself, the telephone, email, contact details text are too big compared to their corresponding details.
The site looks good but fells just short of a professional site. I think with a re-think and about 30-35% modification it has the potential to be a very good site.

Your site design looks good but not that much professional . but back ground images are nice. some places font is not well.

Looks really good! Quite a big difference to what we normally get reviewing here.
A few areas you might want to change:
The design for the input fields on the contact page
The homepage slider, and in particular the images. You need different images, so consider changing the tablet to possibly other devices just to add a difference.

Your web loaded slowly for me. You know seo, but you missed this point.
dukeg — 2013-08-15T02:33:29-04:00 — #20
The full screen design gives a impressive feel. It does stand out like you said. I hardly find out where need to be improved.
As to the speed of loading, it’s not a problem.
