There is no better option to a flood of laser targeted organic traffic using low search volume longtail keywords that do not have many monthly searches but are super easy to rank for. This all would still take a lot of time to create all the content and pages, and it probably wouldn’t be worth it considering the amount of time spent on the building those pages.
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.
We think Page Generator Pro provides more value for money. There are no upsells or restrictions on what you do with the sites you build.  You receive the same functionality and support regardless of which license you purchase, and we include all country, region, county, city and ZIP code data for the entire planet – no need to purchase country-specific data licenses.
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.
I am trying to incorporate Gutenberg functionality in my new projects and find a simple page builder just for the layout. I personally don’t like those themes that do it all, I prefer to create my basic styles, colors, fonts etc in a child theme and just use a page builder for layouts. Still not sure if Gutenberg will do that, but I love the idea of building blocks. Looking forward to read more of your thoughts on the state of WordPress. Thanks again

It still works and can rank you fairly well for shorter long-tails if you want to take the time to juice them up. But if you aren't spamming them with links, it's soul sucking work that's not any fun. I quit doing it for that reason. Projects like this can work for people willing to churn and burn. It's not an easier way to make money these days, not like it was in the past. And I wasn't happy littering up the internet. This was me 10 years ago though when money was the only motive.
Then I'd take all of the locations for each city or state and create a drafted page out of them. One per page, but each would have their own custom field that would include a state or city. So then in the page template for this whole thing I'd run a loop on page drafts that would grab only the ones with the appropriate state or city custom field value.
When I first started working on this, I planned to review all page builders, including those built into themes, but I backtracked on that idea once I realized judging a theme-specific page builder against a theme-agnostic page builder made as a plugin was not a fair nor accurate comparison. It’s for this reason that Make, Headway, Layers, and some others are not included.

SEO and social media work hand-in-hand to increase organic traffic. First, Google is using Twitter to discover new content. Second, social shares help build links in a non-manipulated way. Third, shares from multiple sources also boost authority for blog posts. Google+ works perfectly with Google. Compared to technical SEO, Google pays attention to relevance.


One of the most significant changes to Google’s algorithm over the years has been how it uses keywords to match relevant content to queries. The days of simply matching search terms to the keywords on your page are behind us, and Google’s machine learning algorithms are able to match the topical relevance of your content to the contextual meaning behind user searches.
Page Builder by SiteOrigin makes it easy to build responsive grid-based page content that adapts to mobile devices with pixel perfect accuracy. It's a whole new dimension to content creation that'll help you create your home, contact, about us or any other page where a linear layout won’t convey your message. It's a powerful enhancement to the WordPress content editing experience, yet it feels entirely familiar.

The main point is that having a boilerplate template for content is better than spinning because you'll ensure it makes grammatical sense. Google doesn't need as much variation as people act like. I mean... they index tons of syndicated content with no changes at all. And the ad-libs (the act of inserting words or data into the content) adds real value.
Absolutely nothing (other than the scale of the challenge). Google doesn’t care whether you’re a startup, a major financial institution or the smallest online retailer – all it cares about is connecting people with the most relevant content for each search query. The SEO requirements for a startup are exactly the same as the world’s biggest brands and search engines want to see the same things from you as any other kind of business.

My past studies in human behavior and psychology have led me to strongly believe that traditional ad marketing only turns prospects away, and advertising spend never puts the right message in front of the right person at the right time. Thus, resulting in wasted marketing efforts and investment. I'm determined to help each and every one of our clients attract and retain new customers in a delightful and helpful way that leads to sustainable revenue growth. Read more articles by Amber Kemmis.
I’m currently working on a new design and decided to revisit Envato’s ThemeForest for a WordPres theme… all of the “top themes” honestly look the same to me, especially Avada. Don’t even get me talking about what should constitute a “healthcare theme” website. What before was a simple tweak of HTML + CSS is now a “shortcode” wonderland/wasteland. Based on this article, I reviewed some of the options and am using PootlePress (which I never had heard about until now).

Recently we did a white label job for an agency. While the theme they wanted to use included a page builder, it was a pile of junk. Even then, building the site with the features they wanted was still far faster and more cost effective than doing it from scratch. If I was using BB, it would have been faster again (and yielded a cleaner, more manageable result). Either way, there was no way it could have been done within the budget if it had to be built from the ground up.
I personally dislike the color scheme of the builder, but that’s the smallest of the issues here. The biggest problem I see is that the builder interface becomes clumsy on anything less than a large screen. The builder elements are placed in a scrollable container without any quick way to find specific elements. The arrows on the right move the view port to the left and right but they’re incredibly slow. You’re forced to move the view port one click at a time. Most of the time, interfaces like this would allow the user to click and hold on the scroll bar to move quickly through the options, but not here. It only accepts single clicks, so if the element you need is 25 spaces to the right, you have to click at least 25 times to get there. Keyboard navigation is not an option either. This just screams accessibility (and usability) nightmare.
If you want to know how engaging your content is, you might look at bounce rates, average time on page and the number of pages visited per session to get an idea – and Google can do precisely the same. If a user clicks through to your site, quickly returns to the results page and clicks on another listing (called “pogo-sticking”), it suggests you haven’t provided what this person is looking for.

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.

Don’t stick to just using popular keywords in the field of business. Make sure to use long tail keywords, or keywords that specifically connect to the service or product. After some time, search engines such as Google will identify the website or blog as the perfect relevant destination for a particular subject. These long tail keywords will help boost the content in search rankings and draw the ideal customers to the site.
One of the main reasons I chose to do this review was to try and be objective about it to see if my opinion was justified. I am really, really happy to say that a few builders here have won over my complete support. Those include Tailor, Pootle Page Builder, and Beaver Builder. Those three are easily my favorites that I would happily recommend to any of my customers. Sure they each have a quirk or two of their own, but what product doesn’t?
