Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Default Website builders / host- recommend ? ?

I need a website for business advertizing and Search Engine Optimization S.E.O. For my business, Im a Licensed General Contractor/ Special Inspector/ also do performance auto/truck work and restoration

I know people that have paid someone to build, maintain and SEO of their website

I'm researching some Ive found

Go Daddy https://www.godaddy.com/?isc=gofd200...SAAEgLTHPD_BwE

1&1 https://www.1and1.com/templates

Homstead http://www.homestead.com/

I know the SEO search engine optimization is very Important

Do any of you guys have experience building a website and can recommend a good website builder/Host that is reasonably priced and the best features and maintenance for a small business

From what I found so far, prices can be pretty reasonable, from $100 per year and up depending what is included and what builder/ host you use.

The way search engines work, specially Google...anything you put up will get picked up quick. Not necessarily show on the first page of a general search unless you pay extra, but it will be indexed rather quick. There are quite a few servers, some are expensive, some cheaper. I am presently using two different ones for my company, one is $90 a year, the other is $200 a month but it's got lead generation, email sender, 10 additional pages for salespeople and the whole nine yards. It got indexed the same as the $90 one. The one we use here specializes on forums and we pay what? about $500 a year or something like that. Don't go crazy, try a cheap one, give it a couple of weeks to propagate and see. Also, advertise in everything you can get for free, there are lots of free places in the internet you can get your name on.

That is what I was thinking. Try a cheap simple one.... just to get started . Then I can learn as I go..

I kind of need Local SEO when local customers do a google search for a contractor or service in my local area. You say google will pick me up pretty quick,,, or are there some other tricks or SEO options

Well, you can pay Google for a top spot but I haven't done it. You put my company name in the net and I'm all over the place, Not only I have a website but Facebook,Tweeter, Alignable, yellow pages, Yelp, youtube, etc. The more pages and free stuff you can claim and advertise the more you will show up.

Ya know , I get Home Advisor and Angie's List calling me all the time to buy their service. My opinion is both are a expensive scam

Heck, Looks like It's way cheaper to put up your own web site a get free SEO advertising

Both Kim and I have had a modicum of success with Go-Daddy on smaller websites.

I found doing it myself hard work and not being tech savvy, my own site...although
large and image rich, is still a very basic place.

Rick a roo,

You use Go Daddy... Are you saying you had them build it, instead of doing it your self?
