My opinions...or 2 cents..
First,..define 'hits'....if you are using a page counter or a stats generator. If you are using a stats generator then each image, on each page, and
each page is a different hit,..you may be getting 10-20 hits per pageview. Count only unique IP hits and pages viewed per unique, using a stat gen.
Second,...I am in the electronics industry, and am currently building a community site in a different niche. It is a dry concept to most, unless you
are into it, which I am. Do not expect high volume, as many in this area are look and see type people. Looking for data sheets,...looking for ways to
do something on their own.
Also consider most recent ideas are stolen and marketed before reasonable action can be take. Makes people kindy shy. The tv was invented by a farm
kid, but rca laid claim to it for years.
Lastly, either you have a slow server, or the content is way too dense. Just took awhile to load up.
I have been trying to gain the attention of the sales side geeks, and the like. I am aiming for quick in quick out mentality. Trying to limit ssi,
images, etc. Info is what they seek, info is what I aim to give, and hopefully, hopefully, some business may occur.
Looks great, the whites and greys are a bit bright with light text, but the colorization motiff is typically expected in that target audience, with
the bright colors reserved for the oem's etc. You dont want the ebay look, or looney toons look, as it will give the wrong impression, which is
