    So ive been getting very interested in learning how to design and seo websites lately.
    Whilst i understand the easiest way to go is to pay (and something you should definately do)
    It also would be great to design your own sites as if you can do this website cost are really cheap

    Now im not talking using a sitebuilder, im talking actually designing your own site, be it wordpress or learning php.

    Just wondered if anyone on here has good knowledge of wordpress, i have been tinkering with it for a while now and so far i have this

    www.thompsonwindowcleaning.co.uk

    im not particularly happy with it as there is things i dont know how to do and cant get it right, the seo i feel im ok with its more the design that i need help with

    just wondered if anyone has knowledge of wp design that can help?
    thanks

    your one off clean states that there will be an extra charge
    from your normal price

    crafty customers will then say oh i want to get them done every 4 weeks then when they pay u they say to leave it

    I think you need to make the logo smaller, all that white space above the menu isn't good. The menu is two rows should only be one. You don't need "leeds" on every menu item. Too many keywords is a negative.

    You have the title twice on the top of the homepage.

    No pictures, just lots of writing which no one will read.

    No contact details visible, no quote visible at the top, people will expect to see them straight away.

    You gone well overboard with keywords.

    Good links are what gets you ranked high, listing on yell an similar sites for example.
