I got this prospect with a good healty product ans a good healty attitude. But it's Web site stinks as hell! I can see 7 blinking phrases on a single page! The site was "designed" by some Front Page addict at a dirt cheap price. I defenitly want to see thoses go away!
Please tell me you know those blink tags can affect his rankings. I am down on my knees for someone here to tell me some site was rejected on some directory because of it.
As for the rest of the site I can remove those </font></font></font>, add a couple of page titles,heading,comments,metatags,keywords,alt,noframes,frame names and such here and there to try to make it worth a submission.
