  • Why Google Ads?

    Why indeed! All ad companies have their pluses and minuses. Google has been around for awhile and is stable. There are always lots of ads to be displayed. Their tracking is awesome. If you have an alternative ad company that you think should be considered, then let us know by opening a ticket.

  • How much can I make on Google Ads?

    There are a lot of variables but in 2015 the average from 1000 ad views was $1 USD.  So you would need to 10 views to make $0.01 USD.  So you won’t make much money on one website.  Fortunately our system allows you can create many websites easily that are all linked and help you make more money.

  • How do I add a website?

    First make sure you are logged in.  If you have not registered yet, you will need to do that first.

    Next navigate to https://www.ceweed.com/explore/ and search for what you want to link your new website to.  For example if I had a business in Ottawa, Canada.  I would search for Ottawa, Canada.

    Once you are at the website.  You will see a tab on the right, which lists all the types of websites you can add.  Look for "Business" and click on it.  A window will popup where you can enter the name of your business.  Enter your business name, click OK and your website will be created.  That's all there is to it.

  • Why WordPress as a CMS?

    First of all we didn’t want to create a new CMS when so many good ones are already out there. WordPress powers 22.5% of all websites on the internet and it powers over 80% of all websites that use a CMS. That alone makes it a compelling reason as so many people already know how to use it. We could go into details but in short we felt it would be the best fit for our application.

  • Where can I learn more about creating WordPress websites?

    There are many good resources that you can search for on the internet.  However, we do provide a set of training videos that are free for you to use.  Check them out here.
