    Hi, My first impression is very good. The design is clear, I can immediately tell what the site does. Great job.

    You may want to read google adsense optimization tips on google website a bit more to improve the google adsense placement, color, size etc., The guideline for google adsense should be in the same style with your sites and try to blend it into the content. Good luck
    Happy everyday!

    I like the simplicity of this site - It does exactly what it says on the tin, but for a web designer I'd expect something a bit more ........ designery. I actually prefered the old site, maybe because its orange and I like orange.

    I know that it's always a problem when you're creating a site for yourself, but I really think that your clients will expect to see somthing that will inspire them to want a website.

    I am being a bit too critical, but if you've got the skills why not show them off?

    Greetings from Ukraine!

    The design is good. But some people may want it to be more impressive. Maybe there is too much grey, and some colors would make it better? Actually I like your old site more too, if only orange would be little less shiny.

    I'm a fan of iconized text you applied on the right column - good!

    On marketing side. Why you are referring your customers to visit RentACoder which is known for its low rates and have lots of your competitors? I would never do this way.

    On your website, provide your real life contact details (mail address, phone) for people who want to contract you - some find this important.

    I saw recommendations that having .com domain for commercial website is better.

    Good luck!

    Hey, never place ads onto your business website.

    RAC requires not to show your contacts? It wants you to work for it for forever. Good I have never looked into it.

    You can work on your old buyers outside of RAC, however it is good way to get money in your pocket without beeing frauded by buyer. And it is good way to meet new clients.

    You definitely have to change the google ads and some editing should be done with the text. Many of the passages sound a bit garbled.

    As was mentioned above by your Ukrainian counterpart, I wouldn't refer people to where your competitors are. If safety is a concern, let clients know they can use an escrow service. You don't need RAC for that. Similarly, you should remove the adsense ads.
    As to translating English to Russian or Ukrainian, I'd be hesitant, with all due respect. Namely because the English on the site could use some improvements. For example, it should be "following areas" not "next areas."
    Also, there doesn't appear to be much of a SEO focus here. What are your keywords? The text, code, and so on could use work. For example, the title tag is a run on sentence. Keep that for the meta description. Also, have the name at the end of the tag, because the start of the tag is where search engines expect to see your keywords. And, with all due respect, I don't think many people are looking for boradesign...
    Also, web design is two words.

    On a related note, you may be interested in offering clients SEO services through this, to make some extra money.

    Hope that helps.

    clean straight for word it tell exactly what it soppose to say.

    few things came to my mind though.
    1-may be if there where one worm color in the site, a bit only (may be the orange from the old site ) just a thought.

    2-google ads its kind of sacking the buty of your site try to costimize it and place
    it in a better place

    3- in the Welcome page at RENT CODER the text align on the right are to close
    to the edge i think it can be done with a CSS code.

    as for the rest nice, clean and stright forword design i like it

    good work

    Far too grey imo. You've got some good shots of portfolio pieces which brighten up that page, but overall the greyness is really quite dull imo.

    You've got a nice layout there though, the Google Ads however push this out of place. It would be better if they had a more intergrated position on the page imo.

    I think you must use dark gray color for border, it will look better!

    Site looks good. However, its a little "too grey" to me, not very interesting.
    very clear and straight to the point though.
    good

    not sure whether it will do you justice.....

    I find it all a little too crammed in - some of the screenshots of the sites in your portfolio are rather small and don't really entice yur visitors enough... nothing too attention-grabbing - though your work is clearly good.....

    some work on spacing on images would be good.... I think anyway

    good luck
