Critique my web app and website

edited February 2009 in Website Critique
This account is actually for my website business, Websites Unleashed. I used to participate fairly often in the website critique forum, but for the last couple months I`ve been working hard on a web app startup called LinkLarry. Unlike most startups, LinkLarry is targeting webmasters for adoption versus executing a grassroots movement for end users. The site design is a modified template and I`m considering doing a custom redesign for the official launch.
I don`t want to skew the reactions to how the site is setup so I`ll leave the description at that. I`m here to ask for some honest feedback on both the web application and the supporting website. Organization of information, presentation, design/appearance, functionality, etc let me know what you think. I understand that my target audience doesn`t exactly match those at SuN, but I feel the feedback from other entrepreneurs will be valuable.
It`s been journey to get to this point, so I`ll end with a quote that is quite relevant and I have come to appreciate from my experience:
"If you are not embarrassed by the first version of your product, you’ve launched too late"
Thanks in advanced to those who comment.

    I agree .... I`m totally confused and really don`t get it the way it`s explained .... maybe it is a neat idea, but I have no idea the way it`s written .... what would be helpful is some type of visual flowchart to simply show what to do and how it works....
    On the demo, there is a huge box, with a form and login/register options .... the "What`s This" mouseover flashes so fast it can`t be read ..... so it`s basically bulky and not informative in an easy way ....

    Thanks for the comments.
    Craig - I`m building up the FAQ, but I was intending for people to get the quick info from either the Webmaster or End User pages so it`s relevant to them.
    Webline - There`s some browser display issues we`re working out with that button. I want use the jQuery displays, but I don`t want to increase the load times. I think I have a good idea for a flowchart/visual to show how it works.
    My main issue right now presenting the service to the two main audiences when it`s a new concept for both of them. I`ve been working on it so long it`s second nature so getting fresh impressions is always helpful.
