GoDaddy website builder review – Forbes Advisor
There are plenty of good reasons to go with GoDaddy, but like all platforms, GoDaddy has some drawbacks as well. Before choosing a website builder, make sure you understand what they can and can’t do for you.
Limited design customization
The good news is, you have access to over 100 attractive website design templates with GoDaddy. The less good news is that these templates are relatively rigid and offer limited fonts and layout adjustments. This means that GoDaddy Website Builder is not a great solution for those who prefer more control over website design.
No website transfer
You can create a WordPress website with GoDaddy hosting and transfer your site to another hosting provider. If you build your site with GoDaddy Website Builder, you cannot move your site to another hosting service.
Limited app integrations
Most website builders integrate with hundreds or even thousands of apps, which gives a lot of freedom in terms of extending the functionality and functionality of the website. GoDaddy doesn’t have an app store, and a deep dive into its Help Center didn’t reveal what integrations are available. With fewer app integrations, your GoDaddy website might not be able to support specialized features offered by other platforms.
SEO is limited
GoDaddy offers an SEO assistant on its three main paid plans. The assistant helps you with SEO by asking questions about who your customers / readers are, the geography you serve, and the topic of your page. The tool then suggests keywords and guides you through creating optimized page titles, titles and descriptions. These steps are useful in SEO, but barely touch the surface of complete site optimization.
GoDaddy SEO Assistant can lead some, especially newbies, to a false sense of security that their sites are optimized. We recommend that you develop your SEO skills without relying solely on GoDaddy, as no site builder will fully optimize your site for you.
