What kind of photography web sites do you design? do you have a link to your portfolio as far as web design goes? :-)

BluGraphicDesign - turn off sound since it pops up with loud muzak, and in Flash.

For those who like an Open Source free solution, there is still Coppermine Gallery, Joomla and Wordpress.

Hmmm. You have a decent web site but perhaps just a little too much flash. The web is designed to be fast, clients want to get to the point. Designers go in and make it look good, but they still have to remember what the customer wants. :-)

Well I for one am not going to wait for flash to load, does anyone want to sit for minutes watching an animated loading logo? Cut the flash and get on with the site is my advice, landing page should be as fast loading as possible. With that site BluGraphicDesign you probably lose over 50% of potential visitors if not more before they see what you have to offer.

I don't know any web standards, but I must say the flash takes too long and it takes me a very long while to find out how to navigate... not that it worked.

not following web standards, who cares! Does it load in IE6 and up, yes, does it load in Firefox, yes. The only standard I look at when designing a site is will it load in those 2 browsers and I also usually look at Safari. As far standards are concerned, the majority of "users" don't know or care if it's compliant or not. They just want it to function and look good.



Sorry to rant, I'm just not a huge fan of the standards for standards sake argument.

Hi to all,

I'm new here but i must agree with Rblissett about standards. As long as a website loads quickly and you can follow the links easily who cares about standards.



Have you tried running Google, Yahoo, and many of the top names out there to check the standards ... I have found quite a few with lots of problems but they still work.



I've just done a validation for http://google.com at WC3 and the result is: 40 Errors, 2 warning(s). Now if they don't care why should we.



In my opinion there are far too many sites out there with lots of flash and to be honest if a website doesn't load in around 10 seconds I'm afraid I've moved on.



Best wishes to everyone.

I don't mean to be rude but there are alot of problems with the site, somebody asking for money in return for web design services should know their stuff.



+ Using tables for layout, why?

+ Please don't have sound on by default!

+ Flash isn't exactly the best SEO solution. I'm sure you want people to actually find your images online!?

+ Validation errors galore.

Hello Blue



Blue the site is very nice but the Flash is always a issue. Not your fault but it is just a thing that works best when a site is hosted by one of these big commercial server companies with mega power. Mega power means mega bucks for the average person. See the gimmic is that regardless of what version of Flash, or any animation program, is that they know you will need further mega power services. Let us not forget to mention the power of the individual home computers. Just my opinion and I hope it helps out a bit.



Good Luck Blue

Exactly. Two new articles Your site. Do you really need it? and SEO for your site. Basically you'll have to decide what your goal is: direct sales, show off portfolio (for instance to prospective assignment customers), or funnel traffic to your agency/ies. Flash can be OK if linked to a blog. Google loves blogs even more than static sites (anybody can do that for free on Wordpress).

I'm planning to write a short buyers' guide for DT (only) so my goal is the buyers, more and more. DT has one of the best referral plans around, especially with the new free images search box that serves as a fyke to DT referrals.

I have one more opinion, if I may. And it's about why personal websites are better that building your site on established photosite or strictly on free templates or in some free environment.

The reason is that the main interest of photosites and free sites is to promote their own site. They are not focused on your exposure. They offer free space or services to draw traffic to their sites where they offer also payed serviced and goods.

It's not bad take advantage of their offers, cause they help you, you help them. But it's not the best solution for you. For them it is, of course.

The best solution for you is to find a web designer with SEO (search engine optimization) knowledges and he can build you the website what is focused on your needs and your exposure. If you want to make a business with your photos, you sound more reliable when you have your own site.

Only a good website design doesn't help you. You need SEO to be found via search engines and marketing strategies to promote your website. Free sites don't offer you that.

Wordpress is a great choice, and it's updated very regularly. It's more blog-oriented (time-organized articles) and static pages are limited. I mostly use Joomla. It's more complicated but it also has much more possibilities for static pages: it is more articles-oriented in a timeless manner.



Your hosting for 5.78$ doesn't probably include multidomains? I have the unlimited domains shared server plan on Hostgator for about 10$/month but I run 9 domains on it.



For the Wordpressers: you can get free hosting plus Wordpress on the Wordpress.org site.
