Well we do appreciate the imput. We strive to improve your club and this website. Better art with Flash is something I've been working on. Actually hired someone to build us flash banners and they turned out to be slower than me.
I've seen alot of clean websites with easy navigation, those sites have about 1/4 of the content we have on the home page. But those are usually just a public relations site or support site. The websites that support themselfs are more complicated and messy like ours. Some of the comfusion is to get folks to spend more time on the home page scrolling down, looking at our sponsors banners on the way to the forum link or to member rides or MrHemi's Reviews. So far this messy home page has worked, you members have visited our sponsor's websites and purchased accessories from us which has kept us a float without having to have membership dues.
If our website was just a link to go to, to go to the forum, we couldn't afford this website. I do want to clean it up somewhat and do from time to time, but not alot as not to loose the formula that you great members have supported now, I think on our 3rd year.
If you want to see what the messy home page and the efforts of you loyal members on getting our website to the top, go to http://ranking.com/
then go to "Sites Ranking" put in the code on the screen and put http://hemitruckclub.com/
in the search box, you see we are ranked 136,911 out of the 100 million websites out there.
That's high in the chart. Do any of our members have a website ranked higher? Or know someone personally that is ranked higher. That's the volunteer we need to give us fresh ideas to help us keep climbing the ladder. We do need to find someone to help us find more sponsors, so we can cash flow better and spend more on improving the site. We've been blessed with how much we've grown and how little we've spent compared to the big truck websites supported by magazines.
So the little guy does have a chance in America. We appreciate the offers of help. The editor I use to run this website is Front Page 2003, can't affored Macromedia Dream Weaver yet. Submit your ideas that I can use with Front Page, and we'll work on our future together. My email, [email protected]
We're the #1 "Hemi Truck" website on all the major search engines. Love the mess, embrace the confusion grasshoppers, we have a Tibet monk who translates Hemi ying and yang.
