The Page Builder

Elementor is a page builder that shows the result of your editing immediately. The Elementor Page Builder works with Sections, columns, and widgets  Sections can have a different amount of columns, and in those columns, you can place widgets. Widgets like images, gallery, text, counter, contact form, and more. Using Sections, columns, and widgets you can create your website with ease and save a lot of time in comparison with other themes and builders and editors.

Elementor also has the possibility to import premade pages with a few clicks. That is a real timesaver! So just look at what kind of page you want to create, import a page like that and customize it!

Once your site is built, submit it to Google, add sitemaps
