I would suggest Dynamik Website Builder. It's basically the sample theme, but with extensive and easy customization options.June 28, 2015 at 3:33 pm in reply to: Genesis Framework and SEO #157767
The developers of Genesis recommend using a more advanced SEO plugin than what is offered in Genesis by default. Also, StudioPress doesn't plan to put much work into the SEO features going forward. The following was posted in the comments of StudioPress's latest blog post:

I am disappointed that the SEO functionality has not been update. If you look at yoast they give more helpful contextual things in terms of the keyword helper and the meta description length indicator."

We’re probably not going to do much updating to the Genesis SEO features in the future, other than bug fixes and obvious upgrades. Instead, we actually recommend people switch to a more advanced SEO plugin if you need anything more than the basics that Genesis provides. Genesis is compatible with all the popular SEO plugins, and gracefully disables any SEO features that might conflict with the plugin. It’s pretty painless."June 25, 2015 at 9:30 am in reply to: Theme suggestions please #157508

Same problem on your store site. Scroll down just past that red and black nav bar and notice how much better it looks without that there.June 22, 2015 at 10:40 am in reply to: Craft Site Using Metro Pro #157173
Looks good. But I think the site would look much cleaner without that black secondary navigation bar at the top. It serves no useful purpose.June 28, 2014 at 9:09 pm in reply to: Accelerator #111920June 18, 2014 at 8:08 pm in reply to: WP / Genesis is Slow #110470
Managed WordPress hosting is not that much more expensive than regular shared hosting for a low traffic site. For instance, Godaddy now has a Starter Managed WordPress plan for $6.99 (now on sale for $1). Even one of the best known Managed WordPress hosts, WPEngine, only costs $29. It's supposed to be less complicated, because they do all the back end work managing WordPress for you.June 17, 2014 at 8:16 am in reply to: WP / Genesis is Slow #110167
Since you're already on Godaddy why don't you switch to their managed wordpress plan. Right now it's only $1/month. On Godaddy's managed wordpress plan the servers are suposedly optimized to run wordpress, and ONLY wordpress.June 16, 2014 at 11:36 pm in reply to: WP / Genesis is Slow #110117
You're focusing on the wrong thing. The problem is not wordpress. When I clicked on your site a while ago it was zippity quick. I clicked around and all the pages loaded fast. I went back later and it took forever to connect and load. It could be mysql problems or many other things. But it's not that wordpress is inherently slow.June 16, 2014 at 2:22 pm in reply to: WP / Genesis is Slow #110036
Maybe you have a problem with your computer or internet connection. http://helloartsy.com loads very quickly for me.June 14, 2014 at 12:47 pm in reply to: Feedback for site using Metro Pro #109764
Also I would change the color of your newsletter sign up now button to something that is not part of the color scheme. Something bright that grabs the eye as being different from the rest of the page.
Also "Sign Up Now" may not be the best call to action. It makes the reader think they may have to commit to something and is not clear on what they get. It doesn't state the value. You might want to try something like
"Get money saving tips!"June 14, 2014 at 12:36 pm in reply to: Feedback for site using Metro Pro #109759
Looks good. But I would dump the top right nav bar.June 14, 2014 at 9:51 am in reply to: Web Development site with Metro Pro #109728
Think it would look better without the wood background and without the slider.
