    congrats! its pertty.

    Comments the SEO/Marketer in me are:
    -Good work using Google Analytics
    -Got enough style sheets there bro? Consolidate?
    -Joomla isnt a bad choice, but I'd have used a different slider than that JQuery one
    -Since you are using Joomla, you should try to implement a better SEO system such that you can better seo the pages since they all have the universal metatags (at first glance)
    -Put some more text on the front page, even below the fold, to boost that keyword relevance

    Looking good although the 'Buy it now' link doesn't seem to work, or at least not in Firefox.

    My bad on comment two... what I was referring to was on the stylesheets, there seem to be a lot which appears to be a Joomla thing after all. Here is what I saw...
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="/templates/system/css/system.css" type="text/css" />
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="/templates/system/css/general.css" type="text/css" />
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="/templates/ds/css/screen.css" type="text/css" />
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="/templates/ds/css/lib/typography.css" type="text/css" />
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="/templates/ds/css/lib/plugins/forms.css" type="text/css" />
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="/templates/ds/css/lib/plugins/buttons.css" type="text/css" />
    Basically I was thinking that it would be better to consolidate all the CSS into one or two files to reduce the number of requests to the server and make the load time a little quicker or have fewer requests. It loads just fine so not a big deal there, I just didn't think Joomla acted that way but I hadn't looked further into it. Sorry for the confusion there!


    As far as SEO goes, Joomla can be configured to use SEF, which your install is using, which makes the engines crawl your site a lot easier. Once this is done, there are some great modules and add ons to better manage the SEO for the site...some are free some are paid but its useful to get some additional on page optimization going, too.
