    Hi,

    You can view my site at http://theteamk.x10.mx

    It is a developer's hub for making apps, ROMs, and for further customizing and enriching your smartphone, whether it's Android, Windows, Symbian, Bada or any mobile operating system.

    Lately, the number of visitors to my site has decreased. My Alexa rank has also dipped drastically. My current domain is "theteamk.x10.mx". In your opinion, should I change my domain name? I believe that my domain is not able to tell my website's aim. What do you suggest? If you think I should change it, you may also advice some to me

    Maybe in the Banner area you could have a more definitive explanation of what TeamK does?

    The design is kinda squashed on mobile, making the long in text boxes slightly overlap the second half.

    Aside from it being awkward to visit via mobile, I'm also noticing that you can improve your site's overall indexing performance you need to optimize your site speed a touch http://gtmetrix.com/reports/theteamk.x10.mx/KrHQahDa plus I'm noticing you have a very minute social media presence related to your site.

    Also make sure you're site is verified with search engines.
    http://webmaster.yandex.com
    http://bing.com/webmaster/home/mysites
    http://google.com/webmasters/tools/
    and make sure you submit your sitemap to them. My spider also detects that you're missing a sitemap code in your robots.txt file which helps various search engines find your sitemap. Add the below to the bottom of your robots.txt file.

    Sitemap: http://theteamk.x10.mx/sitemap.xml

    You'll also want to submit the root of your site to a relevant category in StumbleUpon using http://www.stumpleupon.com/submit/

    Your huge issue is you have content, but search engines aren't indexing much, you want them to index everything possible (minus sensitive stuff like the admin dashboard).

    Social Bookmarking will also aid in search engines finding you. Don't be afraid to tell your friends on Google+, Facebook and Twitter about your site once (don't be spammy), and it doesn't hurt to submit some of your content to Digg, Diigo, Delicious and Pinterest.

    I've gotten great community and return visitor results from organic methods by simply sharing relevant stuff. Use a Google+ and Facebook page and have your site with it's own Twitter account. This way people can also follow updates there from an official social media account. (Think, users are one social media more than they are on your site, so they'll see updates more readily if they follow you willingly on social medias.)

    Further, you don't need to change domains unless you want to (I recommend against it since it would require a change of address request to search engine's in their webmaster tools). You also need to brand yourself. Your site title should be changed to The TeamK and all pages titles should read something like "Forum topic title here > The TeamK".

    The whole bit with the different ROM devs should be in the meta description and meta tags (Yes, still use them, Google and Bing/Yahoo ignore them, but some smaller search engines still do).

    Your site also doesn't have header tags which help search engines identify how relevant your site is based on their keyphrase algorithms. <H1> is the most important to your page and should reflect your brand (The TeamK). <H2> is less important but still a love of search engines. Use the <H2> tag's to identify additional specific information. Example below for the home page.

    <H1>The TeamK Rom Devs</H1>
    Then in the content body.
    <H2>Android Roms</H2> or <H2> Bada Mobile Development</H2>

    Let me know if you need further assistance. Just overall, your SEO is rather poor.

    Whatever you do keep hooking into x10 within the month or you will be suspended.

    Hey,

    Your analysis has helped me a lot. I have done as you have said. I will include the headings tags once a few other issues are sorted. I have been using some SMF mods which have a good reputation of bringing in SEO, like, Optimus Brave. I use them on my site too and I will keep submitting the sitemaps to the search engines you mentioned too. Thanks a ton!

    Gtmatrix is a good tool. You can also check your website performance on tools.pingdom.com.
