Question: I am using a canned website, Godaddy’s “quick shopping cart” am I hurting my chances by not creating a site from scratch?
Answer: GoDaddy’s Website tonight is actually quite SEO friendly, as you can set up the major on page tag families – the TITLE tag, H1 / H2 tags, ALT attributes for images, META description tag, etc. We teach this in our session on SEO / Page Tags.
Ultimately, Google does NOT care what you create the content in. It cares about the HTML output. So GoDaddy, WordPress, etc., any of these platforms can actually be SEO friendly.
