I need a new template for a client site - Email Traffic Trader - [url removed, login to view]
Site layout is a complete mess.
This project is for a complete turnkey version of a new template for an existing site to be created, installed, error-tested, and include some followup support.
The design should be clean and crisp with fast loading pages and minimal graphics.
I am open to suggestions for speed, form, and functionality enhancements.
Site pulls content from MySQL database. Pretty straightforward content display approach needed.
Template can be PHP or ASP or HTML as long as it is FAST!
Needs to be table-based so body text is up high on page and left side navigation is at bottom of source code.
Needs to be extremely fast loading and have some visual flair without a lot of overhead.
Extraneous images and fluff need to go.
Some sections need to be removed:
- Flash banner
- Free text ads (what a waste of space!)
Some sections need to be moved
- All information/links/text up near logo needs to go elsewhere on the page.
- Paid text links need to go to footer of page or to a small ad block at bottom right on page and almost the end of source code.
Some sections need to be enhanced
- Google Adsense moves to 336x280 medium rectangle format with no borders. Should be up high near H1 tag and above page content pulled from database (unless you have a visual layout that enhances it even more).
- SearchFeed results need better placement - Could be inserted as divider after first 5 results and above last 5 results. Open to suggestions on this one.
Some sections need to be added
- Niche Power Ads along right side
(small product images plus short text line below each)
Template needs to be extremely search engine friendly. All code needs to be W3C validated. It needs to function and display well across all browsers.
Site could also needs an improved signup form that validates information before accepting it for administrative approval. You can include this in your bid as a separate cost or leave it out.
Looking for a speedy turnaround on this one. Will decide fast and award to most competent design. Want to have in place within 10 days.
IMPORTANT: You will need to load your template and test for full functionality, not just send me the design. The site admin will coordinate testing with design winner.
