Default Can I get a site reviewed for SEO tactics?

I've got a new, yet unpublished site I'd like to have reviewed by the SEO gurus. But I don't see a place to have it done on the forum.

Is it allowed to ask for a review?

And if not in this specific forum, where?

My prime concern deals with keywords and duplication, and it really is in relation to the SE's.

Those that want to take the time can give suggestions but we would need the url to review it which means it would need to be published

I've got an address for it, but did not know if it was OK to ask for a review, or where on the forum to ask.

I don't want to break any rules.

I'm mainly concerned with duplicate copy, having the same keywords on all of the product pages and over-use of the keywords in the content. Of course, any other suggestions are also welcome.

Here's the address. If there is a better area of the forum to post this request, I'll do so.

Default Welcome

Hi Pete. I like the avatar!

I recently got a useful free analysis by following a link from this forums ads. I think the company were called webrepairservice (.co.uk).

The 'rankings' info would be no use (as you don't yet have page ranks) but their automated analysis of title lengths, repetition of keywords, etc., was really helpful.

P.S. On second thoughts, the link was from the smallbusinessbrief.com newsletter

Here are some things I see, Pete.

While you don't have to worry about too many keywords from a search engine standpoint, you might want to consider your use for your customer's sake. If you go through and read your copy out loud, it feels as if "dropship" or some form of it pops up about every other word. It doesn't sound natural. It sounds very forced and repetitive.

Also, I wouldn't use "dropship info" and "dropship webstore" on every single site described in the left-hand sidebar. It's just too much, IMO.

Away from the search engine side, you might want to simplify your opening paragraphs. It took me several minutes to figure out what your site was about.

Lastly, your tags don't support the keyphrases you're using in your copy. Your title tag (especially) and your description tag should contain as many of your keyphrases as possible. Keep in mind they will show in the search results (sometimes the description doesn't, but often it does) so they should also be enticing enough to make someone click your link.

Hope those insights help!
