Best free website builder?

Hiya! Can anyone recommend a free or cheap website builder, with CMS? No Wordpress please, as I'm finding it difficult and not intuitive to use! Moonfruit could be good but I heard that for SEO is not great...

    I use Moonfruit, it costs me just over £80pa. I have no experience of building websites and I have found it very easy to use.

    I gave up worrying about SEO after a few months. At first I spent ages worrying about meta tags and getting links to my website etc. to improve my Google ranking and I would see my website climb the rankings, only to see it fall again if I didn't keep working on it.

    I do have a Google plus business page, so I am on the first page of Google searches for nothing!

    I was inundated with calls from companies wanting to improve my SEO and they were all very expensive, I am very glad that I never used them.

    and the balance in 2015.16 this would be most tax efficient up-front? Assuming that you can claim for expenses/capital allowances before any revenue received?

    Hi Londina,

    You could try using Google's Blogger platform if you want to set up a simple clean site.

    It's fairly easy to use.

    Kind regards,

    I've also recently signed up with Wix though haven't completed the build yet. Good templates and easy enough to edit. Some advice around SEO's but agree with other posts, you can spend so much time on this. I guess it depends what the purpose of the site is...for me, it is just a place to sign post potential clients to who have seen an advert somewhere or have been recommended by another client. I don't expect to get much business from 'blind' searches.

    Good luck.

    I found moonfruit a good free option (preferred it over yola).

    thanks everybody! yes I still believe Moonfruit is the best, very easy to use when you need a simple clean website. I also tried Squarespace and their template weren't easy and intuitive to customise
