Over looked design elements
1. The First text the page has ::
Catch people's attention! Make it short. People don't like reading.
I just did it to you why would it not work on your clients.
Be sure to explain what your site does in the first couple of words. Don't be redundant.
Did you find it troublesome reading the above? Many have their first text as a huge paragraph all in bold. No. This just won't work. In having a writers club I have the problem of people not wanting to comment on the longer works. They're just not willing to read and this IS a very very very overlooked problem as customers do just the same. You need to be sure to do this in the description portion of your site. Don't use stupid keywords like awesome, rocking, wonderful or the best or repeat your domain name in the description. A waste. By moving this paragraph down it increased your likelyhood of reading the top part. The title I put grabbed your attention no? It was followed by just what it offered and that's how you have to make your site.
2. Keywords ::
Too many people use terms like "web design" in their keywords. We can all pray for growth but most are not a top ranking page. It may be better to try and grab longer keywords. You'll be # 4,000,000 in the search engine for the word web design while you could be #1 for the keyword "affordable business web design" which would give your likelyhood of being found much stronger odds.
Okay, well that's my rant. If you have any additions I'd love to here.
