The new WebsiteBuilder program is the way to go for a more contemporary, modern look.
In order to use it you need to have the package that allows for more than 1 web site. If you don't have this option you can purchase an additional site for $2.oo/month. Once you have built the new site and switch it to your current domain you can then discontinue the second site.

Once you have access to the additional site you would click on the Add A New Site that appears in the upper right of your log in screen. This opens a window and asks you to name the site. This can be anything as eventually you will switch it over to your original domain. You then are asked to choose a template. If you don't see one you like you can simply pick one, delete all the elements and start with a blank canvas. If you get started and don't like the template you chose you can go through the process again; Add A Site, name it and choose template. As I recall there are some bakery templates.

Your original site remains up and active while you build on the new builder. It isn't possible to just move your content from one to the other as the software is too different between programs so you'll be building from scratch, but it's easy to just open up the current site in the browser and copy/paste content to the new. Images will need to be uploaded again however.

Website Builder is responsive so your site renders in all devices. There is a mobile version that you build along side of the desktop version and the platform meets Google's requirements for having responsive sites.

Currently there isn't a comprehensive Help for the program. This program has a learning curve, but there are some helpful posts located under the Websitebuilder Category. Tutorials are denoted by the house in the red circle. And you can always ask questions here in the Community Forum.

In order to get more attention from the Search Engines your site needs to have good titles, descriptions and on-page content. Having an active Blog is also helpful and you can set that up through this new builder. Active social media also helps: Face Book, Twitter, etc.
