Question: My current Vistaprint website does not have the ability to title each individual page. How important for SEO is to have each individual page titled? Would you reccomend building a new website with a different website provider because of this? If so, who do you recommend as a website provider.
Question: Does the amount of Google AdWords advertising you participate in affect your SEO ranking?
Answer: If your current platform does NOT allow each page to have a unique TITLE tag, you are in deep, deep trouble. As I teach in my SEO classes, the TITLE tag is the most powerful tag on any page; the home page TITLE tag is the most powerful tag on the website. Are you sure you can’t set unique and accurate TITLE tags for each page? If that is true, your website is crippled and will never outperform other sites.
I recommend a) GoDaddy website tonight for simple websites, and b) WordPress for more challenging websites. As for advertising on AdWords, that definitely does NOT impact your performance on natural / organic search results. Google is actually pretty good about keeping these separate.
