I hope you are well. I am 100% agree with your point of view. GoDaddy website builder has some features missing but peoples like it. WordPress has its own specifications and give full opportunities to web owners to monetize their websites.
I also do not have word press and discus and am intimidated about coding.and even more worried about pouring a lot more money into an idea I'm not sure will take off yet. I to am not getting any comments from the 110 visitors I've had in two days. I've tried going to my own website from a different computer and was able to leave a comment. so the question is can other people leave comments or not? and does the number of visitors and the no comments mean I should spend the money and go with getting word press and Disgus? I'm new to blogging and not sure if that's a high or really low turn out. need advice. Also if I get both platforms what do I need go daddy for? No offense. just worried about cost and the time. Plus I see you can only use one ad source on GoDaddy.
@KyleRBolen, could you please provide some insights into how you were able to get AdSense on EVERY one of your pages? That's an issue I'm trying to deal with right now. I understand basic HTML coding.
You add an HTML code bar to whatever section you want on every page.
You can set it up top or anywhere.
Please be aware you have to create more [AD SOURCE CODES] in order to do this which produces a unique code for every land/hit/ad.
You can copy the source code soon as you create the AD source to advertise on your website and then paste it on HTML.
They give you an option of two source codes make sure you use the right Java Script which matches up to your site. You can try them both and publish and preview then change it within that same hour to update your website.
Thanks @RyFyZone for the response. The issue is, with the builder, when you add an HTML section to enter code, it puts it in the "body" section. Google AdSense says the code has to go in the "header" section. There is no way to access the "header" section through the builder. And yes, I'm aware WordPress is 1 solution. But that involves starting over from scratch with a blank slate. GoDaddy makes it super easy to have AdSense on your home/main page with the builder. A lot of people would like them to extend that to ALL of the pages you create.
I absolutely understand your frustrations with GoCentral / Website Builder. As it has always been stated, however, it's meant to be a simple interface to manipulate. It should also be noted, with exclamation, that it is a product always in development. I know this from experience as I got to play with it before it was released to the public. It's come a long way.
And it will go a lot farther.
It's not easy to develop and release a product like this and the GoDaddy team is developing this from scratch. They're building something entirely their own so you don't get the same cookie cutter experience you get everywhere else. Patience is key when you're an early developer of something like this.
Yup, there's bugs. Yup, they're developing new things. I know it sucks not to get instant gratification but that's how it works, to be honest. I wish I could add a forum on GoCentral, for example, to increase audience engagement. I'd also like a something like a wiki/FAQ/Help page function of some sort.
I guess I'm saying is that good things come to those that stick around.
