Actual Cash Return

Spent £25.00, earned: £7.50 in 3 months....
A fair return considering I have not really spent as much time on this as I would have liked, although it has to be said that $50 of free advertising probably helped. I need to up my game and get more content included on the site if I want to see a real return - that combined with cheaper hosting will be my next goals. I am also considering a site re-design possibly with a Wordpress template, but I am concerned about what impact this will have on the good SEO results I have seen so far. As far as I can tell, the way WP lays things out does not seem as SEO-friendly as a basic HTML site built with Dream-weaver which is what I am using at the moment. I may well borrow some design ideas that I have adapted from WP templates though as some of the designs I have seen are very impressive. I have found a source of free icons that could be used to supplement web designs, and will post about those at a later date. Having consistent, well-designed icons throughout a website sets your site apart from those with an obvious 'home-made' feel (my sites tend to suffer from the home-made look...)
