Nice design.
As siemen told try using SEO optimized URl for the pages.
And I noticed that your content moves slightly up and down in my firefox when the slide at top changes to next slide.
Try fixing it.

Nice design. I really like your featured games slider. Think about moving the 468x60 banner a bit more towards the bottom. It just doesn't look good there. If ads look well integrated, they are much more likely to be clicked.

You could try to make the sidebar content the same length as the main column. I would also appreciate a bit more space between the main column and the sidebar, but overall it's very nice.

Re

Overall the site makes sense within a few seconds after loading. I like that the top menu bar is clean and easy to understand. The bottom half of the page seems a little cluttered, but not too difficult to understand after reading it.

I did notice that the featured games section changes height slightly as the content rotates, this might be good to fix. I also thought it rotated a little fast, not allowing you time to read it. Might be good to stop rotation on mouse over.

Very nice site. Would be neat to see the rankings of each game while browsing. You have the ranking already on each game page it seams, but I mean on the overview pages (where you can search for games by top rank)

3++ uv perday
What did u mean by that btw..? 3++? You alexa ranking is around 200.000 so can't be 3

Hey there.

Please do not think I am an a**...

On to the review:

As I can see in the source you are using XHTML 1.0 Strict doctype.
Your site has 174 Errors, 20 warning(s).

Check here:

http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=ht...Inline&group=0

That is not good but ofcourse fixable.

The featured content slider is ok, but after I took a look at it I saw that
the height of this slider is not fixed height.

I saw this container "moving" maybe 1 or 2 pixels in height.

What I like is the little "guy" next to the logo. The design itself is transparent, there is something missing. Blue and grey are not inviting me to say "hey, cool ... i love games".

What I did not get is ... what is enA Query? It is jQuery 1.4.2, why do you rename it?

Beware of licenses. Just want to let you know ;-)

Ok back to the review.

Page Speed plugin tells me something about the following:

1. Parallelize downloads across hostnames
2. Serve static content from a cookieless domain
3. Specify image dimensions
4. Combine external JavaScript

This is fixable. These is very important. It should be done.

What I saw in source code is that the JS-scripts are in <head></head>.
TBH, I would put them directly before </body> tag.

Loading favicon twice. Put inline JS into external file. Put inline CSS into external file.

That's what I see, what I would change and what I would try to achieve

Thank you.

EDITED: Oh I just saw in Firebug that you do not use any compression for images/css/javascript... bad thing, slows down page load and is not good for SEO, I think. Correct me if I am wrong about SEO ;-)

At least it slows down, wastin bandwidth... Cheers, thanks

As far as the overall look, feel, and functionality of the site, I don't have any complaints. Everything seems to work and the look is professional and high quality. I'm on Google Chrome, and everything looks good with it.

Nice design but gamers prefer more images and less text.

It reminds me alot of addictingames.com. I've already tried some of the games and I find them fun, maybe a better background color than just white. I like the top players scores on the right, this must have taken a while to do but I think it really paid off.

Using Chrome. Seems like a nice high quality site. Fyi, when I clicked a member's profile within the Members list, the details got stuck there. I couldn't find a way to close it. I ended up just going to a different page, but you may want to look into that.

I like the design and checked out afew of the software games. They seem standard but are nice. is there a certain system you used for this? or custom?

Overall I like the interactive look, maybe a good feature to add would be a Email for yoru members.

I am surprised that out of all of these webmasters I am the first to notice this. You ask about seo, well your title tags are wrong, for the sports page this is your tag"Sports - Play Shooting Games | Shoot Em Up Games" I found similar problems with almost all of your title tags.

I never said I am a webmaster

Anyway, jadeslair is right. But I have to admit I never check any sites for their title tags when I do a review.

I do not give much about their SEO stuff except valid XHTML and loading speed

Next time I do a review I will check for the title too
