We are asked this question from time to time. Only in very rare circumstances would a build it yourself website be recommended. There are many website builders out there that allow you to create smaller website (just a few pages) and host it for a monthly fee. Most of the pre-built templates from these sources allow you to change a color or add a photo in addition they are optimized for mobile devices.

Determining what elements are on your page and how they are loaded is vitally important. How fast your website loads is quickly becoming one of the more Significant parts of SEO.
