You need to give us the URL.

Also, run your site through a validator. That will tell you most errors.

Well, one thing I see that does not look right is the following META tag DESCRIPTION. You have the following:
<META NAME="DESCRIPTION" CONTENT="Quick Giftz is a fast gigantic shopping store where you can find a gift for every occassion. Learn personal growth, find a job,keep track of your stocks and weather. Feel the American Pride. Being one click away from anything you would need. Would you like to see ?

So, you have that, then on the next line (word wrap is off!) you have the following:
In fact, there's a *very* interesting
trend revealing itself.
Can you guess what it is? ">


I can see what you tried to do, but that is wrong. You should have closed the DESCRIPTION comment line with the >, then done 3 more META NAME = DESCRIPTION lines for the other 3 lines.

So, it should look like this:

<META NAME="DESCRIPTION" CONTENT="Quick Giftz is a fast gigantic shopping store where you can find a gift for every occassion. Learn personal growth, find a job,keep track of your stocks and weather. Feel the American Pride. Being one click away from anything you would need. Would you like to see ?">
<META NAME="DESCRIPTION" CONTENT="In fact, there's a *very* interesting trend revealing itself. Can you guess what it is? ">

See? Do it in 2 META lines.

hope this helps

I went to see your site, and understand what you are saying. No offense, but yes, the code is a mess. Have you noticed every link on the page points to Hotbar.com? I have had the same problem with software that makes the HTML Code for you. THEY CAN ONLY UNDERSTAND WHAT THEY GENERATE, AND IF NOT, THEY MODIFY THE HTML CODE, AND MAKE THINGS EVEN WORSE, which is why I prefer to do it myself manually, using a notepad, or Visual Interdev.
My name is Juan Romero, and I am a Webmaster with over 3 years of experience. I can organize the code for you, and teach you a few tricks that will keep it that way. I can also help you give it a professional look (Stylesheets, etc). Im NOT going to rip your head off with crazy fees. I am very reasonable. Reach me by e-mail at webmaster@Xgalore.com, or by phone at 201-662-8990 during day, 908-352-1373 at night.

Good luck!

It is time to forget umpteen number of editors or even the stupid html itself. it takes few days to learn ASP.NET in your favorite language [VB,C#,VC++,Cobol,pascal,rpg,perl,cgi...]. Use MS Viso to generate all your classes and design the whole model and generate the full application using the wizard in Visio. This takes a few hours and end of the day you have a highly scalable, full functionality web application which works in any browser/mobile/pda etc...
All the best
