I have not heard of this provider before.  I like WordPress not for SEO, but for the plugin landscape.  Anything I want, I can find.  Need to automate a blog?  Got it.  Need to autopost your blogs to every social network on earth?  Got it.  Security controls?  Got it.  Indexable IDX?  Yup, got that too.

 

I had no trouble with wordpress and no learning curve (or at least a VERY small one).  I like the control and I hate paying someone else to do what I can do.  Plus this way, I get the best of breed products that I control myself.  Why use REW's auto blog, when I can tailor one to my own liking?  If I want to add a new page, I can do it myself and not have to explain my vision to someone else.

Gene, Wordpress did not exactly pass the Pat Test.  I did not find it to be all that user friendly and moved to REW, which is so far so good.

I have used WEEBLY for other enterprises and it met every expectation.

I also use AWS....and a number of others. The reason is the perception of user demographics. Just like AOL users and Foursquare and MySpace have very distinct users so do these service providers.

What I have discovered, however, is the user demographics does not create sufficient leverage to merit the overhead of maintenance. Success is reliant on feeders and selection of the correct key words and phrases and of course, feeding the one you want to win.

I haven't heard of them. They look almost exactly like Wix. I haven't tried any of them because I've been with the same hosting company for over a decade and I pay one fee for unlimited domains and websites. I tried your URL and got website not found.

Gene,

I have seen it advertised on TV.  Frankly, I was not impressed with it, but if it works for you all the more power to you.  A

I have seen a few articles lately that have suggested Weebly and am curious to see what people in real estate have to say about it.

Not familiar with Weebly, Gene. If it is easy to navigate then it would definitely be worth a try.
