I think the banner is great, below that it lacks flair. Needs a tweak to the typography perhaps. The Google advertsing right in the body is obtrusive. Really breaks the flow. The ad space is so big, it almost seems to have a priority on the site, but then again maybe you want it that way.

I can't say I'll link to it just because you want traffic, it's not related to anything I offer, and as such, has no value to my sites visitors. You're on your own there.

i like the general layout of the site but i would have to agree the google ads are mis-placed and do the site injustice.

the first thing i think of when i look at the site is "wow, look at that big ad" then once i get over that i can look @ the site for what it is.

maybe make the ad a horizontal bar and place it at the bottom... maybe the 50px tall one..???

Sorry for the lack of comments. I didn't get into anything on the technical side. The site isn't bad or anything. I like it. My biggest beef is the ads -- they're just so big. That said, it's a nice, professional looking website. As far as flair, I'll even take that back. It ain't bad at all.

As far as a link... you don't need me to get spidered, just submit it to the engines and it'll get spidered in no time. And even if you don't it'll get crawled anyway. Sorry, but property management in the UK just doesn't seem to be a fit with readership on any of my sites so it just wouldn't be right.

Hopefully others will offer a link and/or more insights.

Good luck.
Mike
