Website Builder | Search Engine Optimization Web Marketing.
A web site builder is responsible for programming the functionality of a web site. So while a requirements analyst is tasked with determining what a web site should do, the web site builder figures out how it is going to do it and then writes the necessary programming code. Much of this programming code is behind the scenes and not visible to the user.
The best website builder would likely have incorporated "drag and drop" technology into their product. Some of the most popular site builders available today haven't yet incorporate this technology into their product. Based upon feedback and comments by users of such products, these site builders are missing a vital element typically associated with "ease and simplicity." True drag and drop technology is critical to the novice website builder, and it's value is exponential.
Most web site builders are proprietary tools provided by web hosting companies which cater to people who wish to build their own websites without learning the technical aspects of web page production. Some companies' tools allow the user to see the source code, that is, the HTML behind the page he is building. Many do not, meaning that only certain designated areas on the page can be modified. Usually, these areas are: headers, text and some graphic elements.
A website builder will save you money as it combines a lot of the features of a traditional website program all in one easy to use program. A common pit that many new online business owners fall into is paying a professional consultant to create a website for them- this really isn't necessary.
When choosing a web builder service, you need to choose wisely as your business may depend on it. The best simple website builders will have no contract and should offer a free trial if the service itself is not free. You need to look at the storage limit of each website builder. Free may not be the best value for money if the space on offer is insufficient for your site's needs.
