One of the main things we found is that your front page must load between 30
sec and 60 sec at 28.8.  Otherwise people jump off site.   Second all pics
should be .gif or thumbnail .jpg.  No one wants to wait for a full photo to
load.   The pic may be interesting but content is much more important to the

Don't load up with bells and whistles...lots of graphics, music, sound
effects, moving objects, banners etc....they turn visitors off.   Keep it
simple stupid ...is a great phrase to work by.

Viewer to you site want to know immediately the big questions...who? what?
where? when? why? how?

Good luck.
