    Question FreePowerBoards.com

    Hello,

    This site has been around since early June of 2005 and has gone through a few versions. The latest has been around likely 6 months or more.

    I have found our conversion rate off search for google to be about 20% with good ad copy.

    Any ideas?

    Feel free to comment on anything else as well. Thank you.

    Tell me about it. I finally got sick of it yesterday and called to order a new quad xeon 2.8 4gb ram to use as an apache server.

    Having mysql and apache on the same server is no longer practical.

    Odd thing though that no one seems to know. The main pages take forever to load, like 10 seconds. However our hosted pages which are forums load very quickly 1-3 seconds. Though everything is on the same server. The additional sever should help with keeping loads down.

    Maybe some tweaks to be made in mambo later...



    Thanks for your input.

    i would suggest doing something with the logo, make it stand out more etc.

    Also on the home page i would add a short welcome paragraph to describe what the site is about, or an about us link, just so newbs will know straight off what the site is about

    Thanks for the advice. I definitely agree with making the site title a lot larger. I already did so on the new version.

    I will post a link when the new version is up with a short bio on what was done re your feedback, etc.

    A few things -

    http://www.freepowerboards.com/features.php

    Indent a bit more from the left side

    Also - change your favicon - it's using the phpbb one.

    Other than that - so far from a quick scan it looks great.
