    my recommend step:

    1 use photoshop or fireworks design a picture that resemble what u think your website will be

    2 slice the picture into many parts

    3 use macromedia dreamweaver combine these parts, that's to say, change the picture in step 1 into a webpage

    thus the site may be more delicate,

    instead of trying to make a site, here is my advice. learn CSS. doing a site in tables in simply insane. Once you know css and are confortable with layout you can start doing something creative. Do yourself and favor and don't use black backgrounds as it is not a very good choice.

    Good effort

    Being just 14 it's a good effort from your side. But that black background with blue font is irritating to the eyes. So change that. Also your side does not give clear idea about what it is. Learn from other gaming sites.

    Nice site, for the adsense, try removing your border. This will make it blend better. Should up your earnings.

    You need a layout. A proper layout. Header, footer, body, columns, etc. It just looks like a page with stuff all over. Congrats on the first attempt though.

    (You did this MS Frontpage I reckon?)

    I was actually replying to the poster (new webmaster), not your site, it's just that your post came before mine, so it seems that way.

    Although, with regards to the diabetic corner e-commerce site: (I'll be happy to help, as my brother's diabetic, so your site hits close to home).

    1) Width. You need a bit more. Keep your sites around 1002px max width. No sense in cramping it for the 800x600 crowd. Most people are using 1024x768 upwards now.

    2) Product search should be more prominent. Either in the upper banner, or as a menu bar below your main menu. An easy to see search bar always sends the signal that the site is easy to use, and well indexed.

    3) I like the alphabetical site nav on the left, but I do think you can utilize the space better. Why not categorize them accordingly, and then use a drop down box with options instead. That way, users won't need to scroll down to find what they need.

    4) Keep your office and contact details in the footer, or in the banner. I always suggest to keep it in the banner though. No point in having a website to sell stuff if all you're trying to do is make them ring up your retail outlet (unless its for customer service or queries of course). Besides, you already have a big "contact us" button on the main menu.

    5) Place a main selling point area somewhere underneath the menu. Use it to display your specials. If you look at http://www.debenhams.co.uk, you'll see that their homepage is full of "ads" that sell things. Something similar would be a good idea.

    6) Sort out that paragraph in the bottom. The photos aren't very consistent, and all look quite drab. IMO, I would either drop them and make my paragraph look neater, or wrap the images in boxes, then give them some 3px margins with 3px paddings. Keep the text from touching the images themselves.

    7) Always remember that space does not equal empty. Smart use of space is just as effective as having an image, or a border, or a divider. Space can be used to highlight things as well. Use it wisely.

    There is nothing wrong in designing a site with tables when you are first learning. In addition, learning html and all it's capabilities is a first step. Then he can move on to CSS, scripting and all the other goodies.

    I disagree - Jwolfe.

    Why would you advise someone to learn how to design with tables if using tables as a layout tool is a horrible idea to begin with. Use tables where they are supposed to be used. (data presentation).

    CSS is very simple (aside from some inconsistancies). you don't need experience to create a simple box with padding and place your text inside. Have you ever maintained a site built with tables - Jwolfe? No offense budd, but it's 2007

    Learning tables to layout? In 2007?

    I've got to agree with gottarelocate here. Really silly to learn tables now, only to unlearn it afterwards.

    Hi guys,
    All of you guys thanks alot. I really could use all the pointers i get from you guys. As far as looks of the site goes tobe very honest with you i am not very fussy about it but yes i still want it to look nice and clean. i will take care of the px and product search i think its a good idea to move product search. i working on changing the products layout too, i cant really move concact info couse of the customer service and product catlog as you showed me in the link. it makes things lot easier for customer to narrow down there search as if someone is looking for diabetic products they can just click on diabetic instead of looking for it on the site.
    Other othen that if you guys have more points please do let me know, i have one more question to ask all of you, what do you guys think as far as SEO work.
    we are working on BLOG, RSS, articles, and most of all i am haveing a real hard time submitting site to different directories for backlinks, so we can start to get indexed properly right now getting in google and yahoo just royal pain couse i got like damn 5backlinks only. you guys got any good idea what should i do about backlinks ?
    I am adding post on blogs but that isnt helping me much either right now.
    I will look fwd for your replies
    Thank you

    you should have links from google very quickly. My site - mapszipcode.com - was indexed within less then a week. All i did was submit it to the search engine. Same with yahoo. MSN on the other hand is not cooperating much. Microsoft has made it too difficult for webmasters to work with them.

    Create a lens on squidoo.com. That seems to be permanant although I don't see much return on that investment .

    If we had good ideas about backlinks we wouldn't tell you I'm pretty sure of that. The reason i'm saying that is because there is really no magic bullet. Submit and hope for the best. If your site is good, eventually people will give linkts to it naturally. Thats the best way to gaining links!

    Funny how things work diferently for us. It does take a while for them to index the whole site. That is because of deep links. They usually don't go deep with the first couple of passes. Good luck.

    They eventually will get spidered, but more priority is given to less deep links. google can't afford to process sites with 500,000 pages at once and still claim that they are fair. Eventually, all your pages should be indexed, provided that google can get through.

    Anyone who has no programming experience whatsoever but has a design tool at his fingertips to layout a html page in tables is taking his first baby steps in understanding how layout and html works.

    It also teaches the history of how the web has developed from table layout to CSS.

    No offense, but programming "Hello World" as a simple php script is no different than using a simple table to align text blocks into a pleasing design. It is the learning process and understanding the concept that is more important.

    If the student can not grasp and layout a page in html, then force feeding him to learn CSS is futile. He will either be totally frustrated or completely confused.

    Thank you for your comments
