Can we (or I, email me if you don't want them made public) get a peek at some traffic stats?

What are the competing sites? What are search term are you #1 for? Is anyone searching for it?

For example, my site is #3 for 'dynamite with a frisbee,' but I get no traffic from it becuase no one is putting that into google.

The first thing I notice immediately is that there is no call to action. I had to dig around to find out what it is you're selling!

I may just be willing to help you improve that site for drinks and dinner for group...

cool... pinky shake.... I'll email you....

Okay, I'm pretty embarrassed to post these because of their design. The first, our main site, was not designed by me and hasn't changed much at all since it was launched in 1996.

RiemerNet

This is my company's site. There isn't much that is public, only about 5% of the pages. There is a TON of functionality after members log in, though. A complete redesign has been in the works for years and no amount of pushing from me can get it moving any faster. I have almost nothing to do with the copy that is posted, other than some basic editing. Other than that, I am completely responsible for marking up all copy and publishing it, as well has maintaining and adding to the functionality behind the login. The site is probably at least 90% dynamic, which is a lot of fun. I really love this part of my job.

My company has a second site that hasn't really been marketed and gets next to no traffic. This one I did design. It is quite simple, but that's because I'm a developer and suck at design. I didn't think it would go live with my design, but the owners actually liked it and gave it the green light. This site was put together from scratch in one month. It is entirely dynamic and requires a log in.

CRS Online

I'm sorry that you really can't see the pages. I can't give anyone a login for them, but you get the gist from the front pages. Really, they aren't any different inside.

Unfortunately, most of my work over the past 5 years has been on intranets, so I have very little to show.

I do have a personal homepage and a blog as well, but I'm afraid I haven't devoted enough time to either. If you enjoy amateur photography and obsessive geotagging, feel free to drop by my Flickr page.

As a project for the IAKM program at Kent State I created and usability tested a web site, Mealographer, that lets you find nutrition information and track your diet. Usability testing with an eye tracking system was a great experience, it revealed a lot of real problems. Of course, I haven't had time to go back and fix anything, so I'm a little embarrassed to send experienced designers and developers such as yourselves there.

I really enjoyed the September meeting and look forward to meeting more people in the future.

Here is a link to screen shots of an order-fulfillment/CRM application I built for our business.

We call the application OrderCat. It runs locally on a server in our office (under my deck).

I have the images set to 'public' for now (at flickr). I will probably change that in a week or two.

Our company consists of me and my wife, Aggie. Here is our website:

Still working on the content & the design; I've only been using it for around a month now.

I also have a blog from my previous employer:

Hi All,
Last night was the first time I actually could make it to one of these, it's nice to get to geek out outside of work. Here's my personal site so you can get an idea of where I'm coming from: http://resistmedia.net­ There's a blog and a portfolio section on there.

Presently I am part of the American Greetings UI team, so some of my work can also be seen there. Other sites under the AG umbrella include Egreetings, Blue Mountain, as well as our partner sites with Yahoo, AOL, and MSN.

My first site:
I started a few years ago with a Godaddy template, got tired of limitations then progressed to making my current site with Frontpage www.RealtyMatrix.com . Now I am almost done with my HTML class at Tri-C hoping to upgrade my Frontpage site to one written from HTML scratch. My focus is on videos displayed on websites which is why my next focus is learning Flash. I want to do something totally off the wall, most of the websites I see out there are just a bunch of boxes filled with content. We need to think out of the box.

My wife is a sign language interpreter and so I made this little site for their group. Couldn't use any server side functions at all. CSU has this web space pretty locked down.
