The top 3 types of websites on the internet are:
Easy-to-use (CMS) Content Management Systems - MOST POPULAR WEBSITE CHOICE - This is one of the most common types of websites that are on the internet. A CMS, or content management system, is an easy-to-use software that allows you to edit and update your website whenever you want. This can be customized but is, normally, only customized with templates that are pre-made. Unless you know a little about search engine optimization (or pay big bucks to have a web specialist optimize it for you), this will not help you much in the search engines. This is the most common type of website because these are typically free or have a low monthly fee without the upfront cost. Depending on where you go, there may or may not be help and support when you need it.
E-Commerce Shopping Carts - An e-commerce shopping cart can be created so that you are able to sell your products online. There are things that can be done to help with website optimization so that it comes up higher in the searches, however, this will be limited on the shopping cart software that you will be using. The software allows for customization of the design, but, since this is pre-made software, the design will be dependent on the software that will work best for your business. Some of the factors for which software you will use are: your merchant account and your shipping methods. Your web developer can help you find the right shopping cart software for your business.
Custom Websites - BEST WEBSITE CHOICE - A custom website can be created with the specific purpose of website optimization and a customized design. A custom website will give you the best advantage (and highest rate of success) because your website will be created with a custom design so that it is aesthetically pleasing and have your company branding on it. Plus, it will be created specifically for your current customers and your targeted potential customers - as well as, for the search engines (so that your site has the best chance to come up high in the searches).
