My first WYSIWYG website

This is my first attempt so I welcome any constructive advice - the more detail the better.

link doesn't work, and it looks like a link I wouldn't want to click (no offence)...subdomain.domain/page...

numbers in a domain always scare me, too. As if they are scams..."sign into your goog'1'e"

I would pick a much simpler domain. If you just published this site...the only cost to you now is $11 for a better, cleaner domain. If you change domains in 2 years, you will lose everything.

Pick a domain that has keywords you might want to rank at google for...also a domain that is simple and easy to remember.

Works for me.

Actually I think the site isn't too bad, it would be better if you don't have such a large gap between the departments.

To get your domain up and running have a look at one.com, the first year is free including the domain name.

Aside from the gaps as mentioned, you need to proofread.
Below are somne (sic) commonly asked questions. Click on the arrow to revel (sic) the answers.
A fair first effort, but just needs to be a bit more stylish to stand out. I would look at similar sites or "beauty" site templates for inspiration.

Presumably it's a free subdomain from here:
https://byethost.com/

The OP will need a proper domain in due course for the site itself but I assume this is just for drafting and playing with the design etc.

Thank you for all comments.

The link is indeed my (free) hosting site that I use whilst creating the page. I will move it to the domain when I am happy with it.
I left big gaps between sections intentionally as I only wanted one section showing on even big resolution screens at a time, but after the comments I think I will see what it looks like with the gaps reduced somewhat. Need to proof read it too as well as mentioned.

Thank you again for all your comments :D

this is the kind of service you want to target locally, I think.

You address is very well hidden....I'd spam it a little. I dont know where you are.

'Contact' page is a must, unless you only want phone calls (which is good, too).

I would definately go with text on the bottom, and a link to the top...copyright is always good, too. I'm not really sure how google reads

Get address at bottom, help google figure geo stuff.
Link to your home page at the bottom, I think it helps google go through your site.

A one page website is a gamble in a large market, but I think it looks and feels good, feels user freindly. I woulnt change the structure if you only need to own a small niche at google...except a contact page if you want emails.
If you do make a (separate) contact page, make sure you put ... rel="nofollow" ...in the anchor tag.

Google maps and Yelp are king where I am from...again, I can't find where you are located.
If you can convert your review into whatever is strong where you are, you should. Dont know yell or freeindex..but I only work USA so far. Local SEO is all about reviews.

A good one, my question is how did you manage to make it Mobile Friendly view? did you use a template? because whenever I tried to work on the 320 width screen those 7 tabs on top will definitely not fit

I think that is a pretty amazing website for your first try. I would say that each menu item (home, about, Q&A etc) should have their own page so when a client clicks on the menu at the top they go to a page for one thing. Then you could make the page a bit wider and get everything you need to say in one screen shot without the client needing to scroll down. Very impressive to be honest. I like the design and colours, but, like others have said, the gap between items is too much - that can be remedied by doing one page for each.
