Hello Fellas, As I was reading your threads, the first question that comes to my mind is? Are you guys kidding me? There are many reasons why I wouldn't trust a site builder tool. My first reason; Is the code written semantically? second; Is the web site cross-browser compatible? third; If I for some reason decide I don't want to do business with Yahoo, can I take my web site elsewhere? Fourth; is the code Search Engine Friendly?
Note: I am only going to ask five questions, to keep it short, but I can go on all night and day as to why someone should avoid Site builders. Many of the site builders are still coding web sites in tables... Tables is a thing of the past, not only that... most of the Site Builders that use CSS write their CSS in-line, the purpose of CSS is to separate content from the design... But they slap it on the same page. SO if you're CSS is 600 lines of code? that means, when search engine bots read your content, it has to go through 600 lines of junk just to get to your content.
I've always asked myself one question? If you're able to spend 600 on a new Iphone (for your business use, of course) and an Ipad (for business of course).. why can't a business owner dish out whatever it takes to have a well through out, market targeted web site? Your web site is the gateway to the world... Not having a well thought out web site can be harmful to your business... Online your web site can either "make you or break you"
