Too many scams on SEO even though its a real factor. Do not pay for that!
As to server location it may be best in your country or the country you are trying to do business in.
I was wondering whether my choice in web host is limited to the particular country where I reside, or whether I can choose a web host from any country? If the latter is true, are there any disadvantages to this?
Also, I would like to set up a website and from what I understand from my investigations so far, there exist two possibilities. The first is to download all the necessary software and do it all by myself which will also involve finding a good host that meets my needs and also paying someone to optimise the website for Google. The other way would be to subscribe to an online company which provides all of these services in one package at a determined price. Which brings me to the question, "Has anyone ever come across a site called SiteBuildIt.com or also known as SiteSell.com? Would this be a good option and are they or do they do what they claim? If it is a good option, are there any other sites similar to SiteSell? Is it more practical to subscribe to a company like SiteSell where I can get all my hosting, web design and SEO needs all under one roof or would I be better off going it on my own?
