I’ve designed and coded websites for the last 20 years (since I was 10 years old!). My websites have been featured in Wired, The Next Web, Smashing Magazine, The Huffington Post and Forbes. I am the sole developer, designer and reviewer at Site Builder Report— you can read more about my story in my interview with IndieHackers.
Over the the last 4 years I’ve written over 100 in-depth reviews of website builders— which, at over 100,000 words, is the size of a big book. In that time Site Builder Report has grown quickly. Today over 60,000 people every month use it to choose a website builder.
My goal is to create the ultimate resource for choosing a website builder. So I maintain a side-by-side comparison table, I run customer support tests to find out who has fast customer support (and who’s slow), I use my credit card to test billing practices and I check each review every 9 months to make sure they're up to date.
I started Site Builder Report after building my own website builder in 2012. I thought my website builder was really good— but I quickly found out it didn’t matter. I was up against corporate juggernauts like GoDaddy (who buy Super Bowl ads) and 1&1 (who have a $100m quarterly marketing budget). I realized people didn’t need another website builder. Instead they needed someone to take the time to figure out which website builders were good and which were bad.

Reviewing website builders is now my full time job. (I also run Gift Ideas That Don't Suck as a side project.) My work is supported by earning an affiliate commission when readers choose a website builder based on my reviews.
