    I am not sure why it matters that websites look similar. Are you assuming customers will think, "oh, this looks like the other one, and that is bad."?

    Customers are looking for content, not style.

    From what I have seen, some of these instant website builders give choices of several templates. On top of that you still can go into the back end and put in a different top graphic pretty quickly.

    Dreamweaver and Expression are great, but come with a long term learning curve and even if you know how to use them, it could take several hours to build a website with them.

    I would rather build a website in 90 seconds and spend that time on content and backlinks.

    Just my thoughts!

    I just got it and you get, I believe, 1,000 additional templates when you register it. That should be enough to create a lot of different-looking sites!

    I haven't used it yet, though, so for all I know, you can use NVU which is free, to build perfectly adequate sites. Update: Nvu is no longer available. It has been upgrade to Kompozer.

    Was wondering if websites build using website builder like this one n others like hypervre, etc last long in google n yahoo rankings. will the search engine detect some kind of footprint resulting in generated websites dropping out of top ranking, errrrrm, right into page 47 where nobody ever bothers to check.

    I just looked over the 90 Second website. Just an obseration, but it appears this is not Wordpress. It does have a blog plugin however.

    A lot of products for IM deal mostly with Wordpress. Am I correct on that observation?

    If you plan to purchase a WSO or other IM "how to" package, you may find the tutorials for that particular method aren't compatible with 90 Second websites etc.

    Just a thought...

    Also look at FirePow which also creates quick Wordpress websites.

    Xsitepro.com is also another excellent website builder and it has more features than any other website building program I've seen.

    I like these software packages (like the one in my signature). They build pages in a few seconds, then you can customize them further if you like. Personally I think they are a real time saver. If you are going to build mutiple sites, you NEED to automate through either software or outsourcing and software usually is more affordable.

    Rik & Ymon thanks for the reply, for your advice about compatibility Rik.

    Elliot, appreciate your input too, have you had a chance to try it yet, is it ok?

    Sparkie and Eikat, I'll check these out too.

    I've tried a few of the free ones, but what attracted me to 90 second WSB was the static insertion, meaning that whatever you drag and drop into it doesn't upset the formatting as happens with others.

    Really appreciate your input guys, any other comments?

    Thanks

    >>>those kind of software produces similar looking web sites

    You must mean template-driven online builders? 90 Second Website Builder isn't that. It is an OFFLINE software application - and is NOT template driven. It generates conventional html code - the same code used by Dreamweaver, FrontPage, Nvu, etc. There are some templates available, but most sites designed with 90 Second Website Builder are ORIGINAL designs. That is it's strength. It's easier to build a site from scratch with it due to the ease of the interface. Here's one built with it: bonboncharms.com


    Sites built with 90 Second Website Builder create no "footprint" for SEO. The code generated is the SAME as any conventional html web design software. The difference between 90 Second Website Builder and Dreamweaver, FPage, etc is it's FRONT-END interface. The finished product is a conventionally generated html web page.

    90 Second Website Builder is best for folks that don't want the learning curve or the high price of Dreamweaver or Fpage.

    Nvu can do what DW and FPage can do as well and is free, but many find it very difficult to learn.

    I personally have been using DW for many years , so I am used to it, like it and know it well, but we are finding that many people that do not want to take the time to learn it and love 90 Sec because they can build a site very quickly with it.


    >>>Just an obseration, but it appears this is not Wordpress.

    Right... it is NOT WordPress. It is a web design program. Word Press is a BLOG generator. If you want WordPress, you install it on your hosting account and make a blog. If you want to design an original website you use software like Dreamweaver, FPage, Nvu or 90 Second Website Builder.


    >>>>Xsitepro.com is also another excellent website builder and it has more features than any other website building program I've seen.

    Yes it is a good one. 90 Second Website Builder compares to it well.


    >>>90Second builder website has no contact of any type.

    Look at the bottom of the index page. 90 Second Website Builder is marketed by Teknon Media - same company that owns Black Wire Hosting.
    Address and phone are listed.

    >>>t is really wysiwyg web builder 5 just resold and repackaged with free addons

    Almost....But not quite. The programmer that created wysiwig also designed 90 Second Website Builder, so they are very similar interfaces. But the packages are not the same at all. Blue Voda also uses this same programmer for their site builder, but their version is limited to be used with their hosting service only. 90 Sec can be used with any host.


    Hope that Helps

    yeah, i have to say if you want more out of your site you would need to put more than 90 seconds into it

    It's just a product name.

    Although, we have actually built functioning websites in 90 seconds with it, but we aren't suggesting that ALL websites should be built in 90 seconds.

    It's just a fun title for a product that is very easy and fast to use.

    How GOOD your site looks is dependent on how creative you are no matter what you design with.

    Hi,

    some people take things so literally don't they? "need to put more than 90 seconds into it"

    Just my opinion, but it looks to me like a WYSIWYG editor with some nice tools built in to quickly create & edit some nice looking graphics and other elements.

    I think the sales page looks good and the product looks good. If I were in the market, I'd be very tempted to buy it. And no worries about footprints either.

    Cheers,

    Michael

    Greg,

    I appreciate your replies in this thread. But it's not clear what your relationship is to this program. Are you with the company that developed it? I noticed that you are the author of several of the bonuses that come with the program.

    I am seriously considering buying it. I was also looking at XSitePro, but this looks easier to learn... and cheaper

    Thanks,
    Gene

    Hi Bob....

    Just a couple of thoughts I had when I saw it today....it arrived from Joe Robson of Newbieclub fame.......

    Honestly, I'm just learning all this IM stuff and HTML is a little foreign to me at this stage. I have the new Dreamweaver and XsitePro but like a lot of folks I've done more talking than doing.

    What did appeal to me with this program is not how easy it is to publish a site to the web, but rather how easy it would be to get ideas of what I wanted any given site to look like.

    I'm a Mechanical Engineer by trade and do a lot of layout work for new design piping and equipment......the hardest part of that is merely getting started. Years ago (40 to be accurate) a senior piping guy watched me struggle with a blank drawing for a piping layout....he walked over to my board.....nudged me aside ....took my straight edge and drew a horizontal line at the bottom of the drawing...he then said, "Anytime your stuck just do that and you'll never be stuck again"....he was right....essentially, in IM terms, it's "DO SOMETHING".....the old Chinese proverb, "The longest journey starts with the first step." The Nike adage, "Just Do It".....you get the point.

    I see this program as a way to get started with an idea, a concept if you will and then translate it into whatever program I want if the code the wysiwyg creates is not up to par....or better yet, hand the design I come up with to some outsourced Web Designer.......no more back and forth about concept, layout, and design.

    Just my take on the program for what it's worth.......
    Good Luck,

    Jack
