Default Need Your Help: Please Review My Site.

I NEED HELP! For years now I have been going round and round on what to offer on my web site. Right now I show articles for Small Business owners and startups on my home page. I also offer technical services like web site hosting, setting up newsletters, developing web sites, etc. At first I couldn’t get affiliate advertisers but now I have them asking for me to advertise their products so that is great but I have almost ZERO traffic. My site needs a total make over but it seems like all I do is redo my site. I want to go on to other sites I have started.

I would greatly appreciate a site evaluation. What do I need to do to accomplish the following?

O Reduce bouncing
O Have more visitors
O Have visitors stay on longer
O Get visitors to make purchases from advertisers

Thank you in advance!

Also, I am not looking for someone to advertise their services, i.e. “buy my SEO how to,” “Let me design the perfect site for you” etc.

The web site is: http://www.intexch.com

My target market is individuals seeking help on starting or growing a small business.

It seems to me that the large amount of ads and lack of strong design put your content in a back seat and lessen the site's reputability. I would suggest making your content the priority. Give people a sense of place - where they are and what they're going to get from this site. I noticed that most of the page real estate is dedicated to wasted space and things people tend to ignore at first. And your "Need to Know" paragraph is way down at the bottom where it can easily be missed. Take the essence of that paragraph and translate that into your tagline, page title, and your design. Hope this makes sense.

Way too much empty space in the prime real estate of the page. Also really poor, bad looking design, head over to template monster and see the amazing looking site design you can get for under $100
