    It certainly beats the home page I built in two hours as well ;)

      Actually, I prefer yours. It's simple and I know exactly what you do in a matter of seconds.

    2. 1

      For a second I thought its a error page "this can't be reached..." kind... :)

      Its cool, man.

    Looks great for 2 hours work :)

    Looks good !

    The white text on the yellow pay button is difficult to read. You should make the text black similar to other buttons.

    Also I would display more information on the payment modal :

    • How will I get access to the spreadsheet ?
    • The pricing should be displayed more clearly : mention it is a one-time fee & also with the "70% OFF" I need to know the original price (and when the discount ends)
    • 100% Money-back guarantee if not satisfied, no question asked

      Merci pour ton feedback chef ;)

    pre-order button is a bit slow when clicking, might be my dns
    yellow on white "pay" button is hard to read
    card number is black on gray, hard to read

    Great work in 2 hours. But It needed UI/UX design improvements

    1. Black Color looks black , when someone directs lands on page

    2.Top Strip is not seprated from navbar

    3.Stuck at scrolling on table , You can't even scroll on mobile

    4.Images are blurry

    5.Very Simple Footer as it might effect SEO

    6.Can use more than 2 color

    1. "Database by Mat " , then again main heading and then sub-heading , You can remove Databse by Mat or can include it in subheading

    8.There are lot of heading as features , They are looking so much bold and emphasis

    1. For SImple HTML Page, Your lighthouse is pretty bad < 20 , Check here before deploying next time . https://developers.google.com/speed/pagespeed/insights/

      Thanks! Just improved the page speed!

    Are you selling a database?

    Hiya, I've seen somebody say this before, but I want to say it as well because I think it's quite important: when scrolling, we're getting stuck on the table. When reaching the bottom of the table, it would be cool to continue scrolling on the page :)

      1. 1

        Used it through the laptop.

        1. 1

          Ok I'm going to fix this :)

    Hey Mat, great work for 2 hours. Here are my two cents:

    • The headline feels a little general- I'd go deeper into the specific benefit
    • I scrolled down from the headline, and got stuck in the table (!), maybe there's a way to smooth that out, and allow for smoother movement down the page
    • Another point on the table- it's very big. I found myself wanting to know more, scrolling down, and then feeling a little overwhelmed.
    • The pre-order offer is great, but I missed it on first viewing. Maybe it could sit nicer below the headline. I find the two-button CTA on a homepage isn't single-minded and leads to less engagement.

    Hope something there is helpful.

    1. 1

      Your feedbacks is very helpful!
      Thanks a lot :)

    I love that it's interactive and that you offer a free sample. Maybe integrate that free sample prompt into the lander, so they're immediately pushed towards coversion?

    Also, I'm not sure I understand the 'Quality backlinks' section (typo there, btw - one 'l'). I think that's an important one since people have been burned by backlink schemes, so they want guarantee that they're going to get good backlinks. Are you offering to place it for them, or you just show them websites to reach out to? You might want to clarify that, as well.

    One thing I think would be crucial is making it clear what Gold Hat SEO really is. Is it a tool, is it a database of helpful resources, is it both of those (and more)? Might be good to clarify your UVP there, and in the hero section, so leads know what it is from the get-go.

    This section's header: "200+ GOOGLE RANKING OPTIMIZATIONS" makes it sound like you're going to do that for your clients. But if you'll give them resources to understand how to optimize, then I would rephrase that as "200+ WAYS TO BOOST YOUR GOOGLE RANKING" etc.

    In short, if you only took a few hours to get this one done, awesome work! :D But I couldn't help but to offer a few helpful suggestions. If there's anything else, feel free to pick my brains :)

      Thanks for all your suggestions!

    I don't think it looks tacky personally, but aesthetics are somewhat subjective. Ultimately, it's about your target and what will be most appealing to them. But more importantly, I think you've done a great job of communicating the key benefits, particularly in the first few blocks. I agree with others who think the FAQ's are a bit wordy. I would trim the copy there so it's a bit more scannable. The black background MAY be a bit off putting to some - so you might experiment with a lighter color palette that retains the gold with perhaps black as the accent color. Take that with a grain of salt though as I'm not a designer (I just play one on forums ;-)).

    For two hours of work, I think it's pretty awesome.

      Thanks for your amazing feedback!
      Will update the landing ASAP :)

    This looks really good for two hours of work!

    I haven't really built anything myself, so I don't feel like I'm qualified to give any pointers...but as a reader, here are a few things that jump out to me:

    • There are a few grammatical errors in the copy (for instance, use "an SEO" instead of "a SEO" and "domain authority" instead of "domain authorativeness")
    • The text in the airtable is hard to read
    • The subheaders are hard to read too - perhaps because they're all in caps and the ltters are smooshed so close to each other
    • The text "THE ANSWERS YOUR NEED" is repeated. Also, did you mean "the answers you need"?
    • The FAQ section is really long. Guessing that most people won't have the patience to read through entire paragraphs

    Good luck!

      Thanks for this amazing critique!

      Keep up the good work :)

    It looks very tacky.

    Take into account that, what the user sees, is what the user perceives from a company.'

    Don't rush the process, take your time, an MVP does not have to look bad, in fact, it will go against you because the first impression is what it counts.

    If you are not sure, look for inspiration:

    it looks like you are building with Tailwind CSS, look I made this free resource

    http://wickedblocks.dev/

    and this one too

    http://colorsandfonts.com

    take inspiration there.

    This is completely free.

    and if you need some guidance, ping me on Twitter @mike_andreuzza

      Thanks for your feedback, I built the landing with Webflow.

      Why do you think it looks tacky?

      1. 1

        Ok.
        Are you not a Developer?

        Well it looks tacky for many reasons, color palette too much going on, the shadow...

    • color pallet is hard to look at
    • text valign on tags missing
    • fonts and text sizes
    1. 1

      Any resources to harmonize this?

        I think this would point you in the right direction even if it initially sounds a bit left field

    2 hours to build the front and write the content? Impresssive!
