 Websites Powered – Number of websites powered by each website builder is based on publicly available information. This does not necessarily equal to the number of active websites, or number of paying customers, but will give you an indication of its size.
 Design Flexibility - Refers to access to HTML / CSS codes to make further customizations, or extent of tools provided by website builder to make modifications to design
 Themes - Squarespace themes are responsive and polished – by far the best amongst its peers. Weebly is gradually releasing more updated themes.
 Pricing – Monthly pricing based on annual plans. Monthly price will be a bit higher if you enrolled on month-to-month payment plans. Pricing plans should not be compared directly based on pricing, as each website builder offers different features for their own plans. Please read our detailed review for each website builder for further details.
 SEO - Squarespace allows you full control over page titles, meta descriptions and custom URL. Squarespace also has the “Google Author Rank” built into your profile so this can improve your search engine exposure and site indexing. This is automatically done so you don’t have to manually insert snippets of codes into your site which is very convenient. Weebly allows page level control but no H1 title tags (on page level) or custom URL. Wix allows page level control, including H2 to H6 titles, but no H1 title tags (on page level) or custom URL. Jimdo and Webs only allow page level title and meta description controls if you upgrade. IM Creator only allows you site wide SEO configuration, but not on a page level.
 Export Website - Squarespace websites can be exported into WordPress, allowing you to edit your content in WordPress without knowing codes. For Weebly and IM Creator, you can export HTML / CSS codes to upload into your own host. But to edit your site, you will need to modify the codes yourself.
 Support – Squarespace provides 24/7 email support and answers you within 1 hour. Live chat support (Squarespace & Weebly) only available during day time. Wix’s phone support is only available for their VIP plan users. Webs’ live chat and phone support are only available for higher premium plan subscribers.
 e-Commerce - If you are interested in building an online store, see our e-commerce builder recommendations. Even though Wix has decent e-commerce tools, you can access even more powerful e-commerce tools through the Wix App Market (our review), allowing you to bolt on powerful e-commerce platforms such as Shopify (our review) or Ecwid. For IM Creator, you can use a 3rd party e-commerce tools provider (such as Ecwid) to add a comprehensive set of e-commerce tools to an IM Creator website.
 Email Service - See our thoughts on email services in the comments section below (under January 3, 2014)
 Overall – Scores are based on average of scoring above – You should not base your decision solely on the average scores as there are many qualitative / subjective factors that you should consider prior to deciding. Our scoring is to help you narrow your choices, then you should always test out at least 2 of the website builders to see which one you are comfortable with before investing your time and money. We highly recommend you read our detailed reviews for each website builder as we cover each builder in much more depth in those reviews.
