DIY web site

I built my own using the ISP's templates. It's not the snazziest site on the web, but it gets the job done. Until I get a broadband Net connection at my home office, my site is as media-rich as it's going to be. For example, to upload my demo videos, I took them to my day job on CD and uploaded them to my site via T-1. It's a helluva lot easier than uploading 20MB at 33.6 Kbps.

Not bad considering it's based on free templates Tim. My choice of layout was dictated by my existing site design - not exactly the standard "cutesy" page, but then perhaps that's what makes it stand out.

On the subject of videos, you might want to de-interlace you videos to improve the quality.

Templates

There's a lot of inexpensive templates online. Last week I bought a flash and web template (total $45.00) to rebuild my http://www.magoomedia.com website. I love the flash interface. The website is more of an online business card than a content driven site so I need it to look as creative as possible.

I modified the templates to use php language and created a video interface which I'm going to use to drive the site. Too many people marketing their video skills DON'T use video on their own sites which I find ironic. In the next month, I'll have a lot of video posted on my site.

It was a little bit of work to modify the flash since I'm not a flash expert but I like the end result.

I'm not only suprised at the lack of videos, but the lack of well encoded videos.

I just finished the website this week and will be adding the video in the next month. I'm still testing my code interacting with the embedded video using different formats. The encoding will also be tweaked.

Jim, that was a comment in general about event videographer's sites and certainly not aimed at you in particular!

I did my own...

I did my own, though I'm not a web designer I used to design artwork for gaming machines. I am going to get some video on there soon.

I agree. It's been on my to-do list for a while. I'll probably tackle that this week.

Thanks for the feedback.

RE: Google and Flash

Google can search only the file name, but will be blind to the text within it, or any other type of image. So, if say, you've got the super important keywords Wedding and Video within the Flash image, those keywords will do you zero good in rankings and people finding your site via search engine. They can only read text that shows up within the code of the site itself.

Right. That's what I was getting at with my question.

I do corporate sites and the Google rankings are very important.

We provide streaming video technology. Ad clients use us to test commercials online and also to repurpose TV commercials to display on portal websites.

Thought that might have been some of your video work. :-)

I like your website. Nice work. I wish I was more artistic. I'm heavy on the technical end, it comes easy to me. I really struggle with the artisitc part though. Mine's so dull. http://www.glassdolphinvideo.com
I make web applications at work. They don't have to look good they just have to be easy to use and work.

Actually I wish I had more web development (i.e. backend) skills. I do almost everything else but whenever I need to do forms and database work I have to subcontract. That's the most technical and also the most expensive.
