    couple of things,

    1. Align footer text with logo on its left.
    2. Useful information page - looks slightly empty on the right, could do with an image? That, and its lorem text.
    3. For SEO put a H1 tag around the logo. H2 tag where your h1 tag is.
    4. For the Logo, replace with text and add the logo as the background. (Create a container with the a link and give it a background)
    5. Optimise your jpegs to between 60 and 80% (keep an eye on the edges of fonts) will save bandwidth and increase loading speed.
    6. Add some meta tags, keywords and description is a good start.. google will show these in search results.

    Hope this helps.. nice webby btw.

    3 and 4

    instead of something like this

    <a href="#" title="OMG"><img src="ImageLocation" alt="" /></a>

    do this

    <h1><a href="/" title="OMG Th15 R0ks"><span>OMG This Rocks</span></a></h1>

    with styles

    h1 { padding: 0px; margin: 0px; }
    h1 a { float: left; width: "width"; height: "logoheight"; background: url('LogoImgLocation') no-repeat top left; }
    h1 a span { display: none; }

    But only for you h1 tag.

    And btw, we can argue for days about the use of "display: none;" or "text-indent: -99999px" in essence they do the same thing. So just make it easy on yourself. Google still sees it.

    Just took a look at the website, and I think it's pretty impressive. I think one of the main things is for a website is the ease of navigation throughout it. This website is simple and most people will easily be able to navigate their way through it without any problems.

    I think the colour scheme works too, not too bright but definitely not dull. A nice mix between the two. I couldn't find a site map though, these can be pretty useful. I see you have gone for the same image at the top of most of the pages, which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but I believe adding a variety of images makes each page a little different.
