WordPress page builders are for people that have no business creating a website. Page builders like Visual Composer and Elementor, slow down websites.  They slow down page performance and they also slow development time. Debugging a website built with a page builder is a long and tedious process mostly because each page take forever to load.

Clients rarely are able to use a page builder, they are only easy for FAKE developers to use, and even then they have a difficult time. If a developer tells you they can a build a site for you, please ask them if they use a page builder, if they say yes, find someone else!

Page builders create thousands of lines of unnecessary code, causing page performance issues. If you goal is to rank in Google search, then a page builder is not a good choice.


Popular page builders to watch out for:

  • Elementor
  • Beaver BuildePro
  • Divi Builder plugin
  • WPBakery Page Builder
  • SiteOrigin Page Builder
