Something similar occurs with the WordPress page builders. Yes, there’s no such thing as “free” or “easy” but at least the “wacka-wacka” editors did not eat up my entire custom design! I’ve used WordPress casually for years now and while I do like it, it has become too bloated, kind of like an all-you-can-eat buffet. One does NOT always need certain options, period. For my professional webpage, I purchased a beatiful business card theme, added 3 plugins, and voila.
I do not intend to say that we shouldn’t be influencing “default” perspectives–doing that is how we push forward improvements–but I do firmly believe that the creators of these page builders have a responsibility to be very careful. Unfortunately these themes, and the associated page builders, are not particularly known for incredibly high quality products or for actively participating in development of WordPress itself. This is not typically a direct concern for non-power users, but it does greatly affect them when these products result in problems with other WordPress products.
If you’re going to pay-to-play, get your targeting right. Once you’ve built an audience of relevant fans, focus on advertising the content assets you’ve created -- blog posts, ebooks, etc. -- and use ads to amplify them to targeted users. Remember: It’s likely only a matter of time before organic reach hits zero, so you might as well hone your paid strategy now, which brings me to one final recommendation ...

Once we get past the interface problems with adding elements, the builder itself works quite well. Adding new elements is pretty smooth and editing existing ones works nicely. There were some occasional quirks that caused issues, however. For example, I added a text field and then tried to split it into two columns. When doing this, the column controls went underneath the text element below it, making the column controls inaccessible.

What can I do if one of my domain names become deindexed? Well, most people just let it expire and proceed, but you may also change the ip address as well as the registrar information on it, dump another batch of fresh content in it and let nature take its program. Google “should” see it as ‘new’ and give it another go… No guarantees, but sometimes it’s worth a go if you’re getting a great deal of visitors to it.
Hey, Matt! Thank you for your sharing, and I learned much from it, but I still have a question. We began to do SEO work for our site 2 years ago, and our organic traffic grew 5 times ( from 8K to 40K every day). But two years later, it is very difficult to get it grow more, even it drop to 3.2K every day. So can you give me any advice to make our site's traffic grow again? Thank you in advance!
To boost organic traffic, business owners must create noteworthy content that will grab the attention of webmasters and influencers. It means that when creating content on a specific topic, it should be the best piece ever created. Creating a good content will immediately boost the organic traffic. Also, it is beneficial in getting tons of social shares.
Second, once the page builder has been enabled, site admins cannot switch back to the default page editor without losing their layout. If a site editor was to build a layout, temporarily switch to the default page editor (perhaps to add HTML directly in the Text view), save the page, and then switch back to the builder, the complete layout would be gone. This is really, really bad. Imagine spending a few hours building a great layout then needing to use the default editor for a moment, only to discover that all of your work is now gone.

(Not sure if this got posted, will try again.) Hello Pippin. Thank you again for this very clueful review. Having proceeded several miles further down the road in my search for a theme and page builder, I’m forced to say that, as a non-coder, my first priority is NOT for a page builder but a highly customizable THEME. And, so far, I’m simply not finding it. I used Woothemes Canvas for many years, with great satisfaction. The vast assortment of detailed options in the backend allowed me to avoid CSS except in rare situations, some of which could be solved with a plugin (e.g., placing a tabbed widgets layout in a sidebar). I have the highest admiration for Pootlepress and Beaver Builder, but I really don’t have the time for a deep study of CSS coding at this stage of the game. I would add a thought: most page builders are used badly, because the temptation is to build those horrible, space-chomping horizontal layouts that violate all the evidence-based rules of usability (from eye-scan studies and common experience). Thus, I would never choose a page builder that locked me into a row format. Fortunately, with Pootle Pro or Beaver Builder Pro, you can create long vertical columns that help site visitors get the information they need, without having to wander all over forty acres of screen space in gape-jawed awe for the wonderful designer. The Web was just starting to mature, by recognizing the the Internet is content-based, when this new technology came along and led us astray. I’m absolutely sure that common sense will prevail, and as the complaints mount there will be a return to sanity. Web devs need to study Roger Black, Jakob Nielsen, Steve Krug, and David Ogilvy.
There are far better ways of creating massive sites on the fly than spinning. I'd recommend some stealthy ad-lib content over spinning. The reason I say this is you're going to be far better off with correct grammar and similar sentences with some data and a few adjectives ad-libbed in than trying to full blown spin entire sentences or paragraphs. There's going to come a time if it's not already here when massive grammar and syntax issues stops you from ranking.
Directing your content marketing efforts in the right path can help you generate organic traffic. As long as you create enticing content optimized with backlinks and long-tail keywords, you will keep the traffic coming back for more. Your content marketing efforts should focus on creating posts with novel ideas, authentic resources, and helpful guides.
If you’re going the page builder route, you’d probably do yourself a favor by avoiding themeforest entirely and instead building your site using either the free Storefront or GeneratePress themes. Both offer premium options though, of course. Storefront is made by Automattic’s own WooThemes. Though if ecommerce isn’t your thing then the other might be a better fit. With these starter themes, you don’t have to switch themes everytime you want to switch designs.
Social media is adopting its own form of SEO in a way that promotes a positive user experience. The way this algorithm works is by putting your posts in a pool as small as one percent of your followers. If those people engage with the content, then it gets introduced into a larger pool. Slowly but surely, more and more people see it, but only if it’s engaging.
I appreciate this thorough info. I gave Builder Beaver a good try, bought the full deal and went through all the tutorials, but after nearly a year of wrestling with it to get a simple blog posted, I’m giving up and shopping for an alternative. The “simple” and “easy” used to describe Beaver Builder are descriptions are true if you are a seasoned programmer.

For those perks, after the development of the alpha/beta finishes, we will contact you through your e-mail and start designing together with you on those perks. This process might take some time so we'll try to do it as soon as possible after we are complete but it should be at least the 2nd quarter of 2019. We'll update you with our builds and designs in our demo before that though so you can get a sense of what's to come and what's to be designed. Maybe faster if we can allocate more resources to that.
Before starting this, I need to be completely honest: I really dislike page builders. In the last few years, page builder plugins (and those built into themes) have quite possibly caused more headaches for me and my support team than any other single category of plugins available for WordPress. This overall experience, and one too many support tickets related to a builder in a week, culminated in the following Twitter rant:
When Facebook first launched News Feed back in 2006, the algorithm was pretty basic. Different post formats were assigned different point values -- so a post with just text might be worth one point, while a post with a link in it might be worth two points, and so on. By multiplying the post format point value by the number of people interacting with a given post, Facebook could generate a ranking system for determining the order in which posts would appear.
Guest blogging purely for inbound links is a flawed strategy because the value of those links are going down. However, guest blogging for traffic is still an incredibly viable strategy. While that inbound link you get at the end of a guest post doesn’t have as much SEO value as it used to, it still has the value of exposing your content to a new audience.
There are a few exercises you have where the reps go down, e.g. The barbell bench press reps go from 10, to 8 twice, then 6. It does the same thing with the Tricep Extensions except this time it tells you to add weights as you go for lower reps. Is it only for the Tri Extension I should be doing this? Or should I do every exercise where the reps go down the same way?
The very first thing that I noticed (you may see a trend here) is that the editor interface is wildly outside of WordPress standards. A lot of people would call me a stickler here but I really do believe it matters a lot for overall user experience. The best experiences are always going to be the seamless ones. Brix Builder, like many of the other page builders, is definitely not a seamless experience.
These tweets garnered a fair amount of attention in the form of agreements, questions, and denial. Throughout the various small conversations that followed, I began to realize that I had never once truly used any of the page builder plugins that I was moaning about. Sure I had seem them countless times in our support system–usually in a negative light–but I hadn’t actually used one.
- Creating these networks is not free. It is not expensive, but it is not free. This software used to create your network is a minimum of $67/month. You’ll need hosting and that will cost you about $20/month. So bank on $87/month minimum to build your network. Plus, you’ll need domains. Lots of them. You can buy these at about $1 a piece and that will become a yearly cost.
What a fantastic review. Thank you so much for this. I’m in the healthcare field and am one of those “techie guys.” I learned how to use HTML and CSS for a project in 2007 and did everything with an HTML editor/Notepad… the WYSIWYG editors (I call them “wacka-wacka” editors) drove me nuts because they added a line break here or there that always ruined the design or streched the margins.
It is an overly broad generalization, but I’ve found that most developers that do not take the time to blend their own interfaces with the native WordPress interface, do not typically have great care for the overall user experience nor do they care greatly for WordPress itself. I cannot say if this holds true for the Visual Composer developers and, like I said, it is a very broad generalization, but it’s one I’ve found to be pretty accurate in my own experiences. It is one thing to strike out against standard user interfaces in order to create something better, and it is entirely something else to go drastically against style choices simply for the sake of it.
As I have not the time to learn myself CSS in the deep (yes, I know this would be the best and I know it is easier then I will think) at the moment or to buy another theme to start from scratch, I decided to give “Elementor” a try – and from my first glance: Much faster and more user friendly as the other one. I decided for it because if the page builder breaks down, there will be still text to bridge the gap. From the performance perspective I can say it helped, but still: Page builder make pages slower. This is a fact. But I could afford to safe 7s after re-building with Elemntor and uninstalling the other one and now it is okay. I think it is because Elementor renounces of overloaded futures. But as I said, I am not knowledgeable and maybe I am wrong. 😉

Hey everyone Chris Nunez here good evening it’s been a long time since I’ve been on YouTube but um something massive has occurred in the last few days as far as organic traffic platform OTP which is a product I promoted months ago and I something big has happened in this world-wide and I had to come back and share it with you guys because is so so good that trafficking in human beings I’m getting instantaneously within like one or two days from applying these this new version of the software so I want to share that with you right now this is a reminder organic traffic platform is a software that will construct websites for you massive massive websites talking thousands several tens of thousands of pages for you that will be indexing Google and generate organic traffic for you there’s no paid traffic there’s no social media traffic it’s organic investigation traffic comes right to you and goes to wherever you want to degree it to your offers to your web pages to whatever you want so this is the sales page for OTP and this is an old-time marketings page and in fact the only style you are able to bias these old-time marketings pages is actually one of the older ones is another one’s a little little newer but still not quite the same so I called some I forget the epithet of it anyways but you by OTP through this page anyways you go to the age-old web page and when you buy OTP you get access to every single software at that local square they come that constructs this this software ever constructed including the brand-new versions of OTP the brand-new one is called OTP phantom and what it does if you remember back back then you should take twelve thirteen fourteen spends a day to create a site for you I necessitate it took forever merely make forty 5 000 pages now you can do it through two thousand pages in about 30 times so you’re talking tens of thousands of pages you can create every day if you’re on top of it so that’s the exciting part of this you know and I’ve been getting ranked and indexed and getting traffic within like a day or two of finishing my locates hundreds of thousands of pages are created and I’ll show you how it operates a bit more in depth later on in this video but I want to be really clear that this actually works he’s working for me and I’m I’m in and I’m I’ve only done it in one niche so far my make money online which is a very tough nish to get into as you probably know but I’m already getting traffic in that so I’m getting graded and people are clicking on my on my locates and so it’s pretty impressive as you can see here are the prices $17 test and then you have the monthly price with without a VPS and they have this one here this one includes a VPS if you have a Mac and Apple Apple computer you need to get this or get your own VPS or and this one is 3b to VPS is um I don’t recommend this one the 127 monthly one because it includes the echo VPS is if the new application is so powerful and so quick and so fast and everything you don’t meet its consideration of the item PS is extending anymore only needed here because it takes 30 minutes to make a site and so what’s the point of having three run at once I entail I guess you could do that but I just see save the money and go with this one here or this one here if you have a Windows PC if you’re on a Windows PC and you don’t buy this right here it will take a little longer to about an hour to make a locate because I extend slower on a Windows on your own residence PC and then it does on Lucas whereas VPS is and I’ll show you the VPS anyway later on I’m gonna actually go right into my account and display you how this is working for me okay I’m the kind of people to demonstrate everything there is you so keep in head I started this doing this about three days ago and so the traffic is not massive yet but I mean to get traffic on a HTML site and organic locate without promoting it without paid traffic without putting it out anywhere and already get clicks that is unheard of to be honest you and I’m sure you understand that if you ever tried to do any kind of affiliate marketing traffic is always a big deal right you are required to do all types of stuff to get people to go to your locate and you know go on Facebook or Twitter or Instagram or Pinterest or a article traffic buy ads Bing ads extremely limited has Facebook ads all this stuff I have done nothing I’ve done absolutely nothing I’ve done no Facebook post no Twitter post nothing I’ve got a paper traffic and we’re ready get clicks I’ll show that to you right now so today I had 41 clicks now you’re saying that’s not it very much but keep in head this has been going I’ve only to have my areas up for about three days now not all of them actually had ten websites I created with OTP in the time MMO niche make money online niche and only I just finished it actually today I mean doing it pretty slowly so my first areas been over three days already get clicks to my rotators and getting actual eyeballs on my gives so begin with a little a little slacken here patently but um that’s 41 clicks doing absolutely now I’m gonna ramp that up here quite quickly I’m gonna start doing a strategy or you can get your relates out in index a little faster but continue I have done nothing even further and already getting clicks that’s to appearance you the influence of this software already and that’s if you’re right now my VPS I depict you some things about the software and how it works and are you alright transmit over the VPS this is my VPS my locus where VPS as you can see I’m paying up many seven mentions a few months for this with the with OTP the entire all the software included and I lead no TP on this on this EPS I can do it at work and whatever or not whatnot because this is FileZilla these are my ten sites I’ve created so far make money online one through ten I’m also starting a monotone series here as well but look with the make money online ones firstly I will show you here’s the very first back I established it’s all money tips calm and this is actually expired arena so it actually had some volumes and traffic coming to it but I’ll show you how fast it got indexed I’m gonna go ahead and connect a real quick and show you that these pages are get constructed and indexed so the path this works is that it will not construct the page until someone clicks on it so these develop these these uh three to five thousand pages is stirred it’s all made on the hover so I use a sitemap to do that now everything here all this stuff is how it’s not this not the sitemap but right here how to all these things are clicks so they don’t get made until someone clicks either google or actual person like the spiders and they click on it the page get established so all these fragments got indexed that’s how that you know they’re get indexed because they won’t be made until person ensure it and that’s how it jobs as you can see yes Thunder them a sixth and even the first day I was getting indexed tons and tons of pages it just goes on and on and on and on and on and then it’s still a seventh eighth and that today is the eighth or I savor is ninth now and you can see things are still get indexed as of today as a few hours ago even so things are happening and this is just my very first site and that’s why I’m getting traffic already because these pages are being hit by real people or by the Google spiders and get put into Google people search for my terms my keywords they watch my sites click on it and then it goes to my my connections I’ll show you how that works as well with academy money tips com so this is the page right here so it generates this this stuff here in the background you can’t really read it overlay is right up right on top of it is currently people click here to say I’m not a robot it instantly goes to my relates my affiliate associates and promotes whatever I want to promote and so it’s going to this this site here is the website I’m promoting personally actually this is actually a patron site but as you can see you moved from my OTP site over to my affiliate my affiliate connect and now they sign up here but the email address and whatever and then I can email them and all that stuff so that’s how that the project works and they were makes pages like I said when they actually click on a relate that that Google assures so that’s kind of weird right so it’s all these pages but they’re not actually live until person actually clicks on them it’s kind of strange so how does that work but it does it creates sitemaps and so when Google discovers these sitemaps as “youre seeing” down here so all these sitemaps they go through them and they could get the links in the sitemap and then the pages are developed on the pilot so that’s how it’s able to create so many pages so quickly I stirred you are familiar with I have ten locates with 3,000 pages each an average like three million pages out there being indexed right now all going towards my affiliate links envisage the power right there that’s already in clicks already forty-four one clicks today it’s only been three days next week it’ll likely be a lot more than that and I’ll even come back and evidence you what how it changed let’s check it every one side out real quick so here’s another one I made this evening that got indexing this one so it’s not just one site that has built in traffic already this one I was also get indexed you can see all these right here there’s how-to ones the issue is pages that I’ve been created by but by the application when Google found them so they’re being they’re ready index there in Google you search for this stuff these words you’ll find my pages and you click on them you go to my links simply that clearly articulated let’s try one more is for just for just for merriment I don’t know let’s try it daily buzz Bob calm did any get indexed there let’s see not so many here I think this is one of my most recent ones and again I have not from one of these at all I’m gonna set these into a hyper ability here pretty soon I’m gonna start falling connects in certain places to get these things in a little faster but as you can see you know I’ve done nothing and I’ve already get indexed in some of these sites so that’s what I’m getting clicks I’m gonna depict you right now how OTP looks the new apparition edition it’s actually a lot simpler to employ than the old ones and another ones were you know TP hybrid OTP Devastator all the other ones that they had a static crowd that’s the what I was trying to think about earlier they were very difficult to use I mean they were so complicated you had to really investigate them really play with them and genuinely get into it to really understand what was going on and took a lot of experiment error took hours and hours and hours of build a area so it was very frustrating if you screwed up and wasted 12 13 14 hours of work person they didn’t really actually work first not gonna work and that’s why this is so much better because you know it takes 30 times of a area if you screw it up who cares but another one and anyway you still have you know hundred thousand pages out there Mazal use them it’s just so easy to build them now extremely very simple employ job name some keywords build some content and then put your longtail keywords in here and produce you phantom that’s it boom you’re done here’s your your affiliate associate this is the place we’re gonna host the websites and that’s it it’s really super simple-minded it’s like a three stair process sixty 5 minutes to do it you gotta do some here at experiment of course because you want to you know get the right keywords but that’s pretty quick what you know to do that I mean you use other sites you can for suggest or whatever or we can use Cliff’s own software relates warm to do keyword experiment in like seconds cliffs software is amazing and with OTP you get access to everything he’s ever made and I’ll show you that induces well this is the locus where control panel so everyone all these software’s you get access to with your monthly payment not only OTP and they are all very very helpful for different things he has tons of software video for video marketing for Pb aims for neighbourhood marketing just anything you could think of
