    Default web site

    UNless it will be managed by a third party, you are setting yourself up for a second job, if you intend to do it right. IF it is not continually updated, users will check in and then go away because they have already seen what is there, and maybe not come back.

    You have that right. I been working on my website for years. I haven't done much to it so the traffic died down. But I have a bunch of new pages I am working on to roll out soon. Just need to get the time to finish them up. This freeze been keeping me super busy.

    You are right hj.

    many peopla are talking on web 2.0 nowaday where our website suppose to allow interaction with our visitor instead of just pure information providing. Unless your website is created for that purpose.

    May consider to start your blog and you may blog about anything new then link your visitor back to your website.

    Hey Piker,
    Man I couldn't stand looking at that website for more than a couple of seconds. I don't know why but I found myself in the kitchen looking for an icepick to jab in my eyes...

    I'd delete the whole damn thing and get a pro to redesign it...

    Default Reworked website!

    Well I been working on this site for weeks. Let me know what you all think. There will be more pages in the near future, like the web discount link is not up till I make the coupons. http://www.a-archer.net Now I just need to get webpoint to release my a-archer.com domain so I can link it to this one.

    I'd fire the person who designed that site.

    It's Pathetic!

    You need to find someone that knows the "organic" end of google so that your site shows up without resorting to spamming plumbing forums on the web.

    Seems to me that designing a web site is a whole lot like DIY plumbing. Looks easy, but there are many places to go wrong. Unless you have experience and lots of computer skills, it would be best to hire pros. Any way it's done, it is absolutely vital that it be regularly updated.

    Atleast a website can't leak and get you a callback.

    Sewer Ratz,
    well it's good to put a picture to the name. Here's me.
