Steve: I tend to agree with Danielle that the first
page of your site is distracting. The island is great,
giving the visitor a sense of what you are about at the
same time providing clear site navigation. In my
opinion, home pages should encourage and direct the
visitor further into YOUR site, not that of others. If
you feel you must have banner ads on the home page,
place them at the bottom of the page so that the
visitor gets the full impact of the island graphic
before being bombarded with other places to go. Sell
yourself before you sell someone else!
