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.
