Hi there,
So this idea came to me from the discussion about using events in your marketing efforts.
How would you like a quick review (obviously free) of your website from a technical (usability and performance) point of view?
Being a designer and developer for quite some years, I might see some easy-to-fix aspects of your website.
Just post your URL here and I'll get on with it.
I can even send the review by email, if you don't want it to be public.
Let's try this experiment?

I think most of us use Google Webmaster Tools to do the same thing. I know I get an overview of how well the page is coming up and exactly what is slowing it down. I make those changes and then rerun and see where the site has sped up in loading time.
The other, also important, 'how does it look to the viewer' I did when I built it earlier this year. Sent out the link to a variety of users both capable and not and got back a lot of responses. I fixed the things I could/wanted to fix and tweaked the site to make it more friendly for folks who didn't like certain things I really did like.

We kind of have our "own self -reviewing" here. We look out for one another. Some take it well, others don't care to hear what we offer...so that is fine with us.

Oh, OK, I get that.
Anyway, the offer is still on the table if anyone is interested, if not, so be it :)

GWT is great for a general overview of the website, but there are certain things that it won't tell a webmaster.

But yes, it is sufficient for most website owners not looking to complicate their lives too much with this :)
