Cargo Site may not be the first platform that comes to mind when looking for a web builder. However, Cargo Site can be a great alternative if you're looking for an aesthetically pleasing website or landing page, especially if you're an artist looking to create a website for your portfolio. 

In this post, we will dive into Cargo Site as an alternative if you're looking for a landing page builder to showcase your products or portfolio. 

In addition, we will also add a tutorial on how to add a BlogHandy blog to your Cargo Site and how it can complement Cargo's functionality to fill the gap with its native features. 

What is Cargo Site?

Whether you're planning to create a landing page or a multi-page website, Cargo Site offers some ready-to-use templates to duplicate, which can be pretty easy for beginners to use. 

When you visit the Cargo Site website, chances are your first impression will be the fact that their web design is artistic and that it may be one of the best web builder platforms for artists or creative professionals. From minimalistic themes to colorful web templates, you can choose any template suitable to your style! 

Cargo Site currently only offers a single rate for a website, which you can choose to pay either monthly or annually. In addition, their plan also includes a free custom domain connection to enhance your branding awareness through your website URL. 

However, there are a few setbacks that you may want to consider before choosing Cargo Site for your landing page builder. One of them is pretty crucial, as Cargo Sites mostly only work with Chrome-like browsers like Google Chrome or Safari. 

For some context, I tried to open one of the websites in their "Sites in Use" section on Firefox, and the website isn't accessible. It can be a downside of using the platform for your business website, as you can't control which browser your potential audience might use. 

Unlike other web builders like Webflow or Wix, Cargo doesn't categorize the blog page from other web pages. It can be a little tricky, especially if you plan to boost your website for search engines through content marketing

The good news is that you can now integrate Cargo Site with BlogHandy to improve your website functionality by streamlining the blogging platform on your site. 

Only by adding two lines of code, you can add a blog to your Cargo Site with BlogHandy. The platform also allows you to add social sharing tools that can be beneficial if you want to use social media channels as one of your marketing strategies.

Changing the blog title to H1 on your homepage is important, not only because H1 tags on the website are important for search engines to help the audience understand the intent, but it also improves the UX for your website.
