Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
After visiting the site, I replied "Your right. And anyone who serves up an index page which is 131K in size and takes forever to download, with no width attribute in the main table - adding to download time, with 'you' and 'your' as the top body text keywords and with no listing in the top 50 for 'web design' in Alta Vista, HotBot or Google won't be getting within 100 miles of my clients. Good luck with your business."
This morning, I received a reply from this unhappy partner-wanna-be ... "I'm a bit upset. I'm a young entrepeneur, trying to establish myself in this business ... we just redesigned (our site), and put it up yesterday, without optimizing the graphics. It's a work in progress. Most of our clients are local and we find that when we had search engine rankings, we were getting too many leads that were a waste of our time."
So ... I guess the conclusion here is that we should all be designing SE-unfriendly sites so that we aren't wasting time with those pesky leads!!
