    Visitors don't look around much! Tear my site design apart so I can improve it!

    Hey everyone,
    I need some feedback as to why Cheap Web Site Hosting has a low page views per visitor count.

    The address is http://www.cheap-web-site-hosting.com.au/

    It is an established site which gets plenty of traffic, but the visitors only look at two or three pages on average before leaving.

    I have been working with the other developers and we have made the site both more attractive and more informative.

    I'm very consious of visitors judging a host's speed by the speed of their site so I have kept graphics to a minimum. I suspect that I might need to have a _little_ flash to get some movement on the site.

    What I would love to know from the WHT members is:
    1. Should I introduce a small Flash graphic or animated gif? (if so where and what should it say/do?)
    2. Do you like or dislike the existing design?
    3. Any ideas about what could be done better?

    I have a thick skin so feel free to tear the site to shreads. It will only improve it.

    Thanks for any responses, and I'll check this thread regularly.

    The site is nice, but people expect more sophistication these days. You need some eye candy to get attention and to keep the visitor interested. Find some different compelling photos - with a theme). Use just one to a page. Those little ones don't invoke any emotions from me as a visitor.

    and lower your prices a little or add more space/bandwidth to each package, that is pretty high considering all the other webhosts around

    Thanks for the tips everyone. I realise that domain name is a problem, but I'm sure you can appreciate that it is a lot harded to move your whole domain name than just a HTML change.

    The plans are being restructured in the next few months.

    I will add some graphics or something to make it look a little more professional.

    Thanks for the great feedback. Keep it coming!
