    Hey advernation,
    So do you want web site critique or why did you post this here?

    Let`s assume he posted it for a critique, so let`s tear it apart.

    The photo on the home page is HUGE, and it took my browser on a
    high-speed network connection 55-seconds to download it.  Then another
    145-seconds to load a whole crapload of ads from GoogleSyndication.com
    disguised as "Related Articles".Are you selling something or are you hoping to monetize the site through ads?  A few ads are probably OK, but there was something like 50 or 60 on the home page.  (No, I didn`t count them).  I don`t see anything that tells me what the site is about.  Nothing about you or your company.  There`s no organization to the site, just 57 pages of articles.  No taxonomy, no site map, no site search.In other words, there`s nothing compelling or unique about your site that would keep me there.  I suspect that you are just trolling for people to land on one of your article pages through an initial Google search and hope that they click through on one of the "Related Articles".So, there`s my comments on your site.

    I thought it actually wasn`t for critique, otherwise author would be so polite as to ask for it. Otherwise it just looks like an invitation to click on the link, that`s all.
