Good idea. I will certainly bring up the idea of a "random quote" to our site content administrators. By the way, we just added a new, fresh look to the site if you want to check it out. We launched only a week ago, but already getting thousands of hits.

Get rid of that hideous background. It hurt my eyes when I was trying to read stuff. Or at least put the quotes in a table with a solid color as the background.

I agree with jimbo, get rid of the background, make it a solid light color(perhaps plain white).

Also maybe centering your page would also make it look better. I am looking at it in a 1024x768

Also maybe change the last update was made on September 2000, to an actual date like September 9th, 2000(that is if you actually have new quotes everyday as in your domain name).

Adding some graphics... Or making a more colorful layout doesn't hurt either. Unless, your Yahoo!?

Site review for: http://www.quotesdaily.net
Please look through the quotations and tell me if you like them and had a decent visitor experience (load time, ease of use etc.)
I am not looking for praise or criticism on the basic HTML design however since I realize it is quite bland now. Just want something that loads fast and is interesting to browse.

How about adding a "random quote"?

I believe jimbo was talking about our old background, the new one is now up... As for graphics, we only have one or two per page so that the site loads superfast. In this regard we are like Yahoo, we care about providing content for visitors -- not giving a showy web site. Read through our quotes and comment on any of them.
