A Negative Review of Site Build It (SBI)

This Site Build It review website is not complete if I don’t mention the negative side of SBI. I think the correct word to use is “areas can be improved” instead of negative. You may ask who cares as long as SBI sites are generating a good income. Yes they do generate a good income. However, SBI could be a better product if the below areas can be improved.

Look and Feel of SBI Templates

Though Site Build It has many web templates, the look and feel of basic SBI templates can be improved. It has flexibility of improving the design if you know a bit of technical stuff. But a complete novice may find it a bit difficult.

No Blogging Facility

Site Build It automatically ads all pages to an automated blog. However, this does not provide full blogging capabilities similar to other blogging platforms such as WordPress.

Nothing much for advanced Internet marketers

The whole SBI system (education, tools etc) is focusing on beginner and intermediate online business builders. If you are an advanced Internet marketer and running a successful online business then you may find only a little resources are available for you.

Side note: Having said that, I have to admit that being an advanced Internet marketer (8 years in online business) I still use SBI.

Site administration area is not attractive

Though this is not a problem for me, I have seen some SBI users are complaining about this. The Admin panel (called Site Central in SBI) is not an area with graphics and icons. It has plain text links and buttons to navigate to each section of the Admin panel. Some users may find this boring and not user-friendly.

You can see screen prints of the Admin panel (site central) on SBI screens page.

Apart from the above, I don’t have any other negative points to mention. If you have used SBI and want to add a negative review of Site Build It then use the below comment form and share your experience.

What is the Best Website Builder?

What is the best website builder do you recommend? This is a question I have been asked by many of my friends. This is my answer to them and to anybody who has this question in mind.

A website developer or a website building software can build the best looking website on earth. But what’s the point if no one can find the website through search engines or the website is not getting any traffic? The best website builder MUST build a website which will attract humans as well as search engine traffic.

Do you need a website design software?

If you are planning to build a website of your own and you have no idea about website or graphics designing, then yes you need to get the help of a good website building software. There are many website design software in the market. Although all website builders in the Internet can help you, it will still be best to find the best website builder if it will cost you a little money.

How to select a good website builder?

In choosing a website designer for you, there are five things that you will need to look into.

1.How easy to use

Most people who are using this software do not have the knowledge or time to make quality graphics, designs and layouts. Website builders should make things very convenient and easy for the user. It will be best to look for a website building software that has a drag and drop technology. It must be free of any technical jargon.

2. What are the templates available?

Good website builders must contain a lot of pre-made templates to choose from, this way, you won’t have the chance of ending up with the same web design as other websites. Further, readymade templates make website designing a lot easier because the structure and the design is already done and you will just need to edit your colors and fill in the content you want.

3. Search engine optimization (SEO)

This is critical to generate free traffic from search engines. The website builder must assist the user to build web pages with proper onsite SEO. It also must submit web pages to search engines automatically once the page is completed. Further, the software must notify servh engines automatically when you make updates to existing web pages.

4. Customer support

The website builder provider must be aware that the people using their software are new to website and graphics designing, hence, they look for a much simpler alternative for their website design needs. Thus, if you are one of these people, you will need to look for a website building software that has a 24-hour technical support team that will be ready to help you anytime you need them.
Good provider must have at least email and phone support. Most of the reputed website building software providers have a toll free number for customer support.

5. Reputation

The reputation and track record is very important in choosing a good site builder. Research online for what other users have to say. Visit review websites and discussion forums. See whether the software vendor is providing actual web addresses for websites that have been published online with the help of their website builder. Give time to look at these sample works and see if this is really the site builder you want.
