Today there are probably thousands of free website builders out there, most offer a Free Subdomain, and they all own the top ten spots when Googling. Now everyone seems to be an expert and it seems everyone is a web developer or SEO consultant.
Nearly all do not build a custom website, and instead, they use drag and drop website builders, and call themselves an expert.
We decided that can be utterly confusing for anyone who doesn’t understand SEO (search engine optimization).
We are not affiliated with any company below – no one paid me to give an opinion on these companies.
We hope this blog series inspires others to build their own website – and we hope you’re able to read this as factual and helpful information.
About Dev3lop – We were able to rank Dev3lop past two different billion dollar companies, without outsourcing anything. The companies Dev3lop beats in the ranking have paid for their backlinks and that’s why they are easy to beat.
We beat Upwork with legit SEO strategies – Without buying 24/7 ad space, companies like Upwork will never be a powerful ranking website! You can beat them too by following Google Guidelines.
Did you know that the Google algorithm looks at 200+ different ranking signals! It’s impossible to keep track of them all, so which most important? To begin with, you can’t build ranking without a website.
So, here’s a series about what website builders have a blog, what website builders are attractive, what website builders are fast, which website builders are easy, and which website builders are a waste of time.
By the end of this blog, you will know a little more about the options that give you a free sub-domain, free SSL, and unlimited trials.
What we mean by “They all own the top ten spots when Googling” – is that they have a bunch of websites saying they are better than others. There are no unbiased opinions because these funnels generate a lot of money for them.
Now, imagine you could change the awareness for clients around the world by manipulating the search engine to think you’re content needs to be ranking for “best website builder” — it’s very lucrative to own these funnels and these funnels are heavily guarded.
Below we list a site builder called… Sitebuilder. It owns a few top ten funnels and IMO, it’s the best because it doesn’t offer a free trial, it also doesn’t off a free subdomain…
Yet – Sitebuilder is rated ‘the best.’ That’s just how Google ranking and search engine optimization works online. It’s a jungle.
What free website builder offers a free subdomain?
The following sites offer free subdomains! In the next few LinkedIn posts, I’m going to discuss what I think about these websites builders and a few takeaways from each of these apps. They are all native web apps that let you build a website from your web browser.
In no particular order – here is a list of some well known, and not so well known website builders. If the website builder doesn’t offer a free domain + subdomain, it’s not worth your time!
Why are we learning about Subdomains?
Learning about a SUBDOMAIN.DOMAIN.COM is important because it offers a place to build content – with the power of the DOMAIN. For example, https://austin-seo.site123.me/ – offers an opportunity to build a LINK from their website to my website, with the power of their domain name.
With that said… Go build your subdomain – otherwise, someone else will go grab it.
If you’re able to get a subdomain with a dash in it and relative to what the content will be about, it’s easier to increase the usage of that keyword. For example; my portfolio site is www.dev3lop.com and it’s easy to say develop or dev3lop when speaking about technology, which made it easy to own the Dev3lop top ten spots.
Tip: above you just watched me build 4 links to Dev3lop from one referring domain. LinkedIn is the referring domain.
The more complicated your keywords are – the more challenging it will be to rank on those search terms.
We all have a little artist inside of us.
Teaching you the basics of SEO, helping you build powerful ranking devices on other peoples domains for free, and potentially getting you in the zone to build your personal blog, service site, product page, etc…
Here’s a post from a friend of mine on Facebook regarding ‘output’ and why it’s important to try.
You are all artists in one way or another.
Through any form of expression available to you, you are most likely in tune with aesthetics (making things look/feel great).
…But that’s not the big idea here. Keep reading. 🙂
A key tenet of successful artists is to perform massive output.
Why? Because ideas often might seem great in our heads, but it’s not until they are tested with an audience that we become aware of how good these ideas really are.
If you look at most “visionary” artists who hit it big within a certain style and look at their track record, you’ll notice a trail of true duds where they didn’t quite hit the mark.
But they kept trying *different* things they came up with, until BANG! They hit their groove.
Why do I bring this up?
I see many of you being extremely shy and reserved around your output.
You’re either doing the same thing again and again when you haven’t yet refined your message, or you’re just not making the effort.
That’s not how artists do it.
You will never hit your prime by practicing in your head.
You have to OUTPUT.
You need to package and SHIP.
You need to expose your ideas even though they might flop.
I’ve flopped hundreds of times.
Who cares, though? Better an idea that flops than a safe void of an idea.
While I’m on this note… Do you know something else successful artists do very little of?
Sit down and spend their day ruminating about other artists.
Why? Because the business of an artist is to PRODUCE, not to CONSUME.
I rarely waste my energy talking (positively or negatively) about gurus. I have way too much on my plate — current and future ideas in the works — to pay attention to someone else’s lab experiments.
Yes, we all have influences, and yes we acknowledge those who came before us.
But as the author of your own message, it’s a mistake to think that the most important big ideas will come from eating popcorn and listening to that guru who has a million views on their YouTube channel.
No. The big idea will sprout from that space between your ears. 🙂
But you HAVE to output. Flush the mind every single day. Let these ideas fly freely.
Show the world what you’ve got, and either reap the rewards or suffer the shame.
Then you refine, tweak, modify.
And do it again the next day.
You never know until you try, read our next post coming soon, we will dig into each of these site builders and explain why or why not!
