|Webmasters / Re: Looking For Honest Seo Specialist, Customer Support Agent For Seomarts Inc by yawa-ti-de(f): 1:16pm On Sep 25|
An honest seo specialist will tell you that it will take at least a couple of months for your site to get indexed and ranked, if you are going the organic route. An honest seo specialist will also not employ black hat methods to force the search engines to rank you up there. An honest seo specialist will also tell you that seo is a continuous process and that if you let your site's content go stale, you will start to drop off. Finally, an honest seo specialist will first of all explain how they will take you to the top (their strategy).
Good luck in your search.

Then I think the post's title, "Check out this website" is a little misleading, IMHO
|Webmasters / Re: Fixed HTML To Responsive Layout. by yawa-ti-de(f): 1:13pm On Sep 25|
you don't mind paying? Was it supposed to be free?
anyways, conversion is perhaps more involved than recoding from scratch as everything will need to have a reference point and all the pixel measurements will then need to be recalculated with percentages. At any rate, as the other poster has said, you may contact our resident responsive specialist, the one and only GraphicPlus
|Webmasters / Re: Checkout This Website by yawa-ti-de(f): 10:00pm On Sep 24|
Get rid of the fixed position of the "contact us" module - depending on your screen resolution and where you scroll to, it ends up blocking content and girlz no get time to dey scroll left and right to read stuff. I jus wan go d site for wetin dey dia - content...Not to praise d coder's effizy
|Webmasters / Re: Website Design Challenge: Do You Know How This Was Done? by yawa-ti-de(f): 9:58pm On Sep 24|
The actual red "pins" were most likely implemented via the Google Maps API, using coordinates of the respective cities. If you study that API well, you will learn how to do even cooler stuff like causing the white "bubble" to show, on hover of the red pin, showing the data you please about the particular location
|Webmasters / Re: Daily Independent Newspaper Online, I Hail Thee! by yawa-ti-de(f): 4:43pm On Sep 20|
^^^ As of yesterday, what I saw was even worse. At any rate, it looks like the (free) template customization has been completed as all non- "daily independent newspaper" references have been corrected.
|Webmasters / Re: Cascading Style Sheets - Q & A Section - Interractive by yawa-ti-de(f): 4:41pm On Sep 20|
a url, where we can see your code in action, would be very helpful here
|Webmasters / Re: Daily Independent Newspaper Online, I Hail Thee! by yawa-ti-de(f): 1:48pm On Sep 19|
1) Header image now reads, "advance newspaper"
2) The theme message is displaying prominently at the top
3) Site now seems crowded, compared to the past, making news hard to read (at least to me)
4) Old news articles are now showing up on the site
The above are just a start...
|Webmasters / Daily Independent Newspaper Online, I Hail Thee! by yawa-ti-de(f): 12:49pm On Sep 19|
At least once a year, you do something that makes me swear never to visit your site again. Then after 6 months, I have a change of heart and visit again. 3 months after that, you give me a reason to regret my change in position and the cycle continues.
Today, you have done it again:
Na wa o!

Note to organizers (and I say this as these have not been explicitly mentioned here):
From 2014 moving forward, include accessibility and SEO as part of the criteria.
|Webmasters / Re: My Fellow Nl Webmasters Site Rivew 4 Me by yawa-ti-de(f): 1:00pm On Sep 13|
OP you can leave the text in there. Just get rid of the scroll.
|Webmasters / Re: My Fellow Nl Webmasters Site Rivew 4 Me by yawa-ti-de(f): 7:58pm On Sep 12|
You could do better in the footer area and you need to get rid of the scrolling marquee in the header (an eye distraction)...
|Webmasters / Pretty Good Government Website by yawa-ti-de(f): 5:55pm On Sep 11|
http://www.services.gov.ng/ - No, I didn't do it...but wish I did
Finally, someone puts up a solid site for the FG. It's totally responsive too. Kudos to the developers!!
|Webmasters / Re: Education Ministry Website Suspended Amid ASUU Strike by yawa-ti-de(f): 1:07pm On Sep 11|
^^^ Goveernment doesn't and shouldn't get into anything for the purpose of making money. Though I am not advocating that government waste money, their job is to provide a service. If the service is essential (and education is more than essential), the site should be up for the purpose of the general public, for as long as the ministry is in existence.
|Webmasters / Re: Web Master Help Me Rate This Work by yawa-ti-de(f): 1:04pm On Sep 11|
You can send an email to email@example.com and we go from there. I am rarely on any chat programs.
|Webmasters / Re: Handling Clients That Are Not Within Your Immediate Environment by yawa-ti-de(f): 1:04pm On Sep 11|
Except for coming up with multiple templates, all your other approaches are in order. Remember, time is money. I show people one template after asking the relevant questions (what sites do you like? is there a particular color scheme you like? etc). Then I ask them to make corrections to what i send them.
|Webmasters / Re: Education Ministry Website Suspended Amid ASUU Strike by yawa-ti-de(f): 9:13pm On Sep 10|
I don't know when the site was first pulled up, but considering how cheap hosting can be (what? 2 - 3% of what you will charge? Technically, such sites should be hosted on independent, dedicated servers for this very reason, but that's a story for another day), I would at least pay for hosting for the duration of the current presidency, at the time I am given the job.
|Webmasters / Re: Web Master Help Me Rate This Work by yawa-ti-de(f): 9:11pm On Sep 10|
1) A client might say they want something but that doesn't mean you should be a code monkey who simply takes orders. If you talk to the client "well", 99% of the time, they will back down. At least that's what works for me. It is taking the content on the other pages down, thus causing people to scroll. Major problem for those on mobile devices. Maybe if you put it to him like that (assuming you haven't already), maybe they will budge.
2) At least N100K
|Webmasters / Re: School Portal ...... Any Help by yawa-ti-de(f): 5:50pm On Sep 10|
Depends on features and how much they are paying you. I personally would recommend a hybrid - build from scratch but provide a CMS solution for "non techie" pages that may change often. That way, you are not called every so often to add "coma" to a page, if you know what I mean. Of course, this all depends on how much is being offered.

|Webmasters / Re: Web Master Help Me Rate This Work by yawa-ti-de(f): 4:54pm On Sep 10|
1) Remove the fading photos from all pages other than the home page
2) What is the difference b/w "sign up" and "forum" links in the footer
3) It would be nice if you could customize the forum to have 90% of the look and feel of the main site. Right now, it's like I am going to another site
4) In the fading photos section, some portions of the blue text of the "akande" picture is bleeding into the actual image
When I click items in the nav, nothing happens
Hovering over "We diagnose and treat" in the nav results in an orange hover effect that doesn't cover the entire white font
|Webmasters / Re: Please Review by yawa-ti-de(f): 8:18pm On Sep 09|
Then why not have a teaser line or paragraph, with a link that says something like, "read more..."? I shouldn't have to download your list of services by default. Besides, your services page should have a summary (as in, titles) of your services. Give me that at the very least.
|Webmasters / Re: Please Review by yawa-ti-de(f): 1:26pm On Sep 09|
1) I would move the social icon, in addition to making it smaller, to the top, upper right corner of the page
2) Why are services and activities in PDF form? Make that HTML and put it in the appropriate sections. At least that way, they can be spidered by the search engines and indexed

Congrats Mr. Ramp. This is definitely Front page worthy.
|Webmasters / Re: Content Is Showing On The Right Margin Of The Site by yawa-ti-de(f): 1:52pm On Sep 06|
I am going to need the actual url of the site.
Based on the code and screenshot, I am going to say that your (white) background image is too short but I need to see the actual site in action before I can authoritatively come to that conclusion.
|Webmasters / Re: Content Is Showing On The Right Margin Of The Site by yawa-ti-de(f): 8:18pm On Sep 05|
Screenshot and/or code would help here...
|Webmasters / Re: Mini Site by yawa-ti-de(f): 9:29pm On Sep 04|
how do you define, "mini site"?
|Webmasters / Re: Help With My Web Programmer by yawa-ti-de(f): 9:28pm On Sep 04|
What were the terms of the contract or gentleman's agreement? If none, you don't have to pay.
Lesson of the day: Always have a contract, no matter how friendly you are with the person you are working with.
|Webmasters / Re: Standard Quote For Building A CMS by yawa-ti-de(f): 4:22pm On Sep 03|
I prefer joomla as it has a low learning curve, based on personal experience, for the client. As per quote, it will depend on features. Having said that, because of customization, I would say nothing less than N200K, base price.
|Webmasters / Re: My Site Is Not Recognised By Google. by yawa-ti-de(f): 12:33pm On Sep 01|
How long ago is, "just launched"? If you are doing organic SEO, it can take more than few weeks for your site to even register on any of its pages.
Google will probably index your site, depending on when last it "danced", within the next 30 days or so. Ranking will depend on how relevant your site is. What I would do is google for sites in your niche, check out the top 5 for the search and see what they are doing that you aren't doing.
