WoodWorks & Coracles
#1
http://www.woodworksandcoracles.co.uk/

I made this with my theme from Chris's Beadysite, although it's been altered with a googlefont and some colour.

This hosting company (easily.co.uk) does something wierd with it's chmod thing whereby I couldn't get News Manager or GSBlog to work at all, so I embedded a tumblr blog with the fine plugin I didn't even know was there (SimpleTumblr). For a lot of people I think an embedded blog is probably more user friendly, but I don't suppose it is as Search Engine Friendly, and that's often the reason to run a blog

I18N Gallery - brilliant as ever.

Both Sidebars are editable by the owner through the CKeditor with getPageContent('slug')

Nice, although it looks a bit crowded with stuff.

Maybe add some more empty space here and there between the sections.

Ah only just seen this thread!

Great job you`ve done there. I like it, clean easy to read and lots of great information. I bet the site will rank well in the search engines.

I am really suprised - I am testing searches using two and three word combinations like 'coracle making weekend' 'coracle course' and the site is right up there in the first ten results even within a few weeks. Number one for some combinations.

Incredible. It's because it is a small field with obscure key words, but even so I must have done the site right. There are very few backlinks to the site, so the ranking is the result of
  • keywords in the domain name
  • custom titles
  • image alt texts
  • all original quality content

please tell me, what is a "coracle" ? For me it is obscure, not only to search engines... ;=)

seems to have a little bit of confusion in the CSS:

http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/valid...oracles%2F

as well as HTML-Errors:

http://validator.w3.org/check?verbose=1&...oracles%2F

give those images an "alt" ;=)

A coracle is a traditional light weight one man boat of bent wood covered in cloth.

Look a little closer and you will see the validator results are just the normal validator junk thrown up by old plugins and other oddities. I don't know why it thinks grey is not a color. All browsers recognise it. Grey and Gray too.

yes, I was always irritated that "gray" is a correct color ;=)

but alt-tags for images should be! I will check to find out about these small boats, this seems to be a funny vehicle, hihi
