Why DIY websites can be bad

build your own website

You’ve probably seen it advertised or tried it. What exactly is it? Create your own web-based software. It may appear to be simple, but it is rarely the best option.

You can usually tell when someone is using one of these do-it-yourself website services. It’s a fairly generic template that frequently lacks personality.

Here are some of the other difficulties that many people face when attempting to create a website on their own.

SEO
Google has given your website a low ranking. This occurs frequently because some DIY website builders lack the best tools for ranking optimization.

UNPROFESSIONAL
Although loading your images took only a few hours, your website lacks a professional appearance. These websites are referred to as “cookie cutter” by many.

SUBSCRIPTIONS
Most site builders require a monthly fee to use them; otherwise, your website may contain advertisements. You are not usually protected from rate increases for the life of your website if you are on a subscription service.

PROPRIETARY
You’re usually out of luck if you decide you don’t like your DIY site. Because most of these DIY services don’t use a standard platform, you won’t be able to easily migrate the content to a more popular platform or a different hosting provider.

LIMITATIONS
The number of templates available on free or DIY sites is usually limited, and you can’t always create your own look.

FEATURES
On a do-it-yourself website, features may be limited. Hundreds of free and paid add-ons for popular platforms are available to enhance your website’s functionality.

SUPPORT
When using a site builder service, you may encounter less-than-ideal customer service.

ORIGINALITY
It’s possible that hundreds of other people are using the same template as you.

CHEAP
Customers may perceive your business as cheap if they can tell your website was built using a site builder service.

BACKUPS
It’s possible that backing up websites will be more difficult. When you’re about to make a lot of changes, it’s a good idea to make a backup first just in case something goes wrong. When you build your own website, this is often difficult or impossible.
