In a word..No...but it really depends on how you code the page..there is no
automatic penalty for using FrontPage.
No matter what HTML Editor you use to create sites, there will be
competition for anything that you do. Search Engine Optimization is more of
an art than a science..and it is a huge topic by itself..but it is
independant of the program you use. One of the best plaaces to learn more is
You certainly sound energized to be going down this path..one thing to keep
in mind though is it is never finite. You could reach #1 in Google some day
for a certain phrase..and fall way back the next time..there are simply no
100% solutions or guarantees.
I would say to try and do as much of it yourself as you can..and stay away
from sites that say things like "submit your site to !,000's of Search
Engines for only $69.95"
I'll hazard a guess here and say that many or most of the people that gave
you that advice fall under one of two categories.
1. They have never used FrontPage
2. They simply keep passing on myths without really knowing. :-)
Both FrontPage and Dreamweaver can produce code that is specific to the
program used. Whether that ever happens depends on features that you use.
FrontPage webbots for things like navigation bars..will produce specific
code for that.
No not really...but again it comes with more experince in knowing what does
and does not work well.
