The code is deprecated as is the design. You shouldn't be using tables for layout purposes.

The colours you have used are also bland, and somehow depressing.

As a result the content looks boring too. Not a fan.

i think the colors look fine, only thing i can suggest is the search, you need a search that searches your site, not google.

The color scheme seems to fit a desert. Is this the kind of image you want to portray to visitors? I like more contrast on the text and background (white/black is best).

Have you had the site proofread by a native speaker? I see some issues which are not the best use of english (at least the American variety). For example:

India have four name, called Hindustan, Bharat, Aryavart and India.
Should be "India has four names, Hinustan, Bharat, Aryavart, and India."

The date format is strange, YYYY-MM-DD? Neither American or British english would use that format.

There are a few validation errors. That badge at the bottom doesn't really prove anything to anyone who isn't a web designer either (so I wouldn't use it).

The text is rather small, hard to read over long periods of time. Can you provide a sizing mechanism?

What is the point of the list of items at the bottom of the page? Should they be links, or are they just words?

This is the ISO (ISO 8601, I believe) standard for representing dates. It's recommended for international date representation, as it leaves no room for confusion.

Overall I think this is a pretty tight presentation, especially for a first time. Here are my thoughts:


I think the <title> needs to be changed, as the current one appears to be a list of terms that you want to get hits for through search engines. This is what meta tags are for, but ultimately good content will end up getting you the most hits. But if you absolutely have to have these terms in there, please use a meta tag.

I definitely agree that the W3 validator logo should be removed since it won't impress or even make sense to the vast majority of your target audience.

You have a pretty nice desgin for the icons in the history section, but your images have apparently blurred as a result of converting them to jpeg. I would suggest creating these as a more robust filetype (gif, png, or similar) to preserve the quality of the image.

There are some areas that are clearly meant to be links but they are lacking the coding behind it. (ex: India Map, Taj Mahal of Agra India, Temples of India, plus all of your link at the bottom as a previous poster mentioned)

The decorative scroll/banner below the history section and above the "comments" section is not centered within the content as it probably should be.

Maybe I'm blind but I didn't see anybody mention that it's limited depending on what screen resolution you use. I'm using 1024x768 at the moment and have to scroll right in order to see all of the information.

This site [link removed] is plagiarizing articles from internet.

For example, I find that the webpage [link removed] is a copy paste of the website http://www.i3pep.org/archives/2004/11/12/akbar/

This is extremely reprehensible.

The site owner of [link removed] also violates the legal & user agreement of the original website.

Yes, I would agree that a better search function would be desirable.

This site[/URL] [link removed] is plagiarizing articles from internet.

No offense anup, but how is recalling history plagiarism? Is the creator of [link removed] supposed to make up new information for what has already happend in the past?

Would it make it better if the creator of [link removed][URL="http://www.history-of-india.net/"] (http://www.history-of-india.net) put in their website for each article a link to the original article? But even then, as the web changes often that link to the archived article might not be valid one day and the article at [link removed] would be the only existing copy.

I honestly don't think it's plagiarism to copy an article about an Emperor from 400+ years ago. Even if someone was to rewrite it, it would still be the same article. Would be kinda hard to write an "original" article with the same exact facts as the first without making it sound pretty dang similar.

Besides, historical facts do not fall into the plagiarism category, because if they have to be "different" then ones a lie and ones the truth. To keep history accurate all historical articles have to be the same otherwise things get lost and forgotten and lies show up in their place.

So if I publish a "History of World War II" under my name which is a copy of Sir Winston Churchill's 6-volume book, you would not regard that as plagiarism?

Articles about the same historical subject are bound to have many similarities regarding the facts, but to copy and paste someone else's work is straightforward theft. History is not just a list of dates and other hard facts.

That's why I put

"Would it make it better if the creator of [link removed] put in their website for each article a link to the original article?"

Only if the first site says its okay to post the content, otherwise that doesn't make it better. Copyright provides protection for the content from this, and this is complete theft. However, besides removing this thread nothing will happen because there isn't much one can do, especially when its in another country. Thread should be closed and links removed.
