You ask, we answer

One question submitted by the community or researched online (i.e. google instant, Answer The Public) and answered by Pascal and Jonny:

I have heard that my ranking on search engines will be poorer, if I use a website builder and templates like SquareSpace, is it true?

Jonny and Pascal will explain why this enduring myth is complete nonsense and should be ignored altogether.

Jonny Ross: Upgrade your hosting package - you want fast, reliable, trustworthy hosting. We only consider Rackspace now!

Pascal Fintoni: do a search and collate the options from the ‘People Also Ask’ and ‘Related Searches’ panels on the Google search results page - and soon test AI-powered suggestions (Bard) to access the ‘Follow-Up Questions’.

We will be back with another podcast episode, in the meantime feel free to send your questions, share your preferred app and links to your website once you have made the changes we spoke about, we would love to give you a shout out!
