    A friend of mine is in the construction business and he built his site on godaddys platform. It actually looks pretty good and uses a similar constructor like Word Press.

    I can't speak on how it will work for you as far as SEO/engine ranking goes. I know he doesn't place well.

    Godaddy does have some kind of SEO stuff if you pay so much extra a month.

    I love Godaddy as a registrar, but hate it as a host. I prefer HostGator to doing hosting with. No need to sign up for Wordpress Platform it is already integrated into their system. But yes, I strongly recommend Wordpress for your website. Not only do Wordpress websites on the front end look better, but there are a lot of tools on the backend to help rank your site.

    Whether you choose Godaddy or another host try to get a Wordpress site up and running...

    I'm so confused. So I go on go daddy.com I purchase a domain for the company and then get on word press to fix my webpage? Is that correct? Because I looked at both sites Word press looks real good but it also says you have to have a domain to work with so I'm just trying to understand the knickknacks because I don't want to pay someone thousands of dollars to put a webpage up for the company at the current moment.

    That is correct - you pay to register your domain name with go daddy, and that gives you the Web address you want. However, you have to have a host to store all the stuff (pics,words, etc) that make up your site. Godaddy does have hosting but I agree that host gator is better at hosting. Then you have to have a way to put together all the stuff into something that a computer can see as a website, and that is what WordPress does. It's not difficult to do a website yourself. What is difficult is making it actually look good, draw in visitors and rank well in search engines.

    Reigister at godaddy or namecheap - point the nameservers to hostgator and build a wordpress site. Google loves wordpress. There is lots to do on the back end though.
    Here is what I see most of the the time - build your own site and do your own SEO = a mess down the road that is hard to fix! Get it done for you by someone that knows what they are doing and concentrate on building your business!

    Just be careful of over using the term vancouver carpet care too much in your SEO and articles - G will see it as over optimization.

    SEO - Search Engine Optimization

    Taking steps in the design and wording of your page to help Google "see" it and rank it higher than other, similar sights. So for example, if you don't include the city name anywhere in your site, Google is probably not going to rank your page if someone searches "city carpet cleaning." This is a very simple example because Google's algorithms for all that are very detailed and they are always changing to inhibit being abused.

    Search Engine Optimization - helping Google find your site.
    I my opinion there are 2 kinds of sites.
    1- a brochure site. This shows off your business and what you do and all about you and your biz. You can tell potential customers to check out your site to see your work etc. You put your web address on all you marketing pieces - van etc
    2 - a site built to be found. This requires work and a budget for SEO and should be part of your marketing budget. This as well.on point on page SEO as well as off page SEO

    Thank you I've asked and nobody seemed to answer that.
    So on my page it would help if I put Orlando Lightning Carpet Care LLC? Or at least have a link or be able to click that? Or do you mean having it optimized to where I add that as a tag? I'm just trying to understand the logistics of it

    Search 'Orlando carpet cleaning'and you will probably get 10 pages of results, with all the big guys paying ads for top page rankings. IMHO seo won't help the small guy get found.
