    Hey guys,
    I am currently involved in a urban internet radio station, we push about 6000 uniques each day to the site and I want to know what you guys think about the look and interaction? I am not sure what could be done else, is there anything that is hard to look at or understand what it means?

    website is:
    http://tinyurl.com/jamz000
    Don't want to index the site :p

    Thanks for your help!

    Page <title> looks bad. Page loads horribly on 64kb/s (I'm shaped).

    Can't say any more because it's loading too slowly.

    Very odd, I am not noticing any speed issues, I would guess it appears the distance would have a lot to do with that. Most of our network, we are in internet radio so we have to use top quality to prevent buffers, is focused on the USA. Any luck in maybe running a traceroute to the server? Because right now the server shouldn't have much load its like 0.35 which wouldn't explain any reason for slow loading times.

    Thanks!

    Loaded reasonably fast for me. It has a clean look and good color choice, is the template custom or a purchased one?

    I'd take a look at competitor radio station sites if I we're you. While the template is clean it doesn't give of the vibe of an urban radio station. Good luck though, I think if you can create this site you can do a lot more with it if you wanted to.

    This is a custom design, we have had other ones that have had darker tones this is about the 3rd or 4th complete redesign in a few months here. This one has worked out pretty well not sure what else we may try, we have had a red/black more urban design but we will see which one works best.

    Thanks!

    The site is very complete, all the stuff is up to date... but you should change the layout, it's too simple for a music station page, you need something more dynamic, some more colors and things like that!

    Actually it's 64 kiloBIT/s, not kiloBYTE/s, so it'd take 10x8=80 seconds. :eek:

    You should fix the title of the page, the title should be a meaningful
    sentence which contains a few of your most important keywords. I
    do not like the placement of your adsense ad at the top of the page,
    I think your header should be at the top of the page and the adsense
    ad should be below the header.

    The mainpage is kinda non-attractive. Clean it up a bit? Maybe change the colour scheme a little? Can't think of anything much more buddy.
