comments on website please
My girlfriends dad approached me today asking me how he can get his website on the google search. He said he has managed to get it on the yahoo search but most people tend to use google.
I took a quick look at his website WBC. At first glance I think its obvious why he is not getting on the google search nor do I think people would know what the website was at a quick glance.
I'm thinking about redesigning the site with joomla but before I do, I was wondering if you could all comment on what is wrong/right etc.

Some random thoughts:
email addresses should be clickable
should be giving out a post code so ppl can 'google maps' it
images have no alt descriptions
use of deprecated tags (font, tables for layout, etc etc)
email address link jumps about from page to page (and isn't even on one of 'em)
That's even before you touch SEO.

It can take quite a while before a website appears on a google search, my school one took ages. The meta tags look OK on the website.
try this to add your website address

as i thought... a complete mess excellent feedback

just a note - email addresses should not be in text form, or in any machine readable format, else the recipient will receive loads of spam.

There's no 'design' to it in my opinion. The colour scheme is dull and there's too much white space. There isn't much consistency either. If I'm being honest then it's a mess and if I was you I would start again. Find a suitable colour scheme and get hold of some more images to use.

It's just plain and boring. Also, I think the "Whitby Brunswick Centre" should be clickable to take us back to the main page. Just noticed that the link back to the home page is not on all pages. I would defiently make it again with Joomla as it will allow everyone to easily edit it while keeping everything the same.

TBF if it's his first attempt it's not bad, websites develop over time after it's been live for a while he'll probably tweak it and change various bits to improve it.

Joomla could certainly make it look better
another thing that helps google ranking is if other websites link to yours... apparently!
