It's not bad, but I'm wondering what rocks and swirly things have to do with computer repair?

I go to how to create a simple batch file and it shows me how to boot into safe mode.

It's just apart of the design which I downloaded, I am going to remove the image of the rock and eventually replace it with the same sort of faded effect with a computer related image, which means messing around in Gimp.

Im not sure how this fits as 'advertising critique' as the site does not seem to advertise anything.

I have my doubts about the project in general. There are squillions of 'how to' computer sites on the net. Personally I dont see the point in adding another one, particularly with the time/cost involved in getting it to rank for any significant keyword searches.

It looks like you have plans for PPC, in which case I think your query would be better suited to posting on a Forum about this particular type of site. PPC is a bit of an art unto itself.

Closed immediately once I saw the sidebox ad. I know a lot of people make money from Adsense and box ads, I personally don't like them.

If you're going after that model you should make the ad blend better with the page.

Agree with above, ads- especially those with flash content that have nothing to do with the website @ all are annoying and offputting. A developer can get their website out there with other known SEO methods, and not have to use these 'innappropriate' advertising. That said it is based on a CSS co0ntainer template with not much thought put into the layout/design and colour scheme really in the end anyway.

Cool Website

It needs more of a computer image. At first glance it looks like a local events website or something. You need something what when someone glances at it they can tell it's about computer with out reading a word.

I am going to utilize the area between the search bar and Logo for that , but now deciding whether to use one the open sides.

I have removed the two sides ads to make it less intrusive.

It's quite a nice modern design. However it's too black and white IMO. This means that the colour that is there really grabs your eye but the bits in colour are not massively relevant objects.

I don't have a problem with advertising on this kind of site at all.

Anyway, thanks for the safe mode boot article. it was a bit over my head but that could be a real life saver...:p

I was think of changing the color scheme later on down the line.

Neither do I, as long as the ads are relevent in some way thats fine by me (I do block any ads that come through that don't fit my content)

No worry's, there will be many more hopefully.
