There are lots of designing software available to design a site. Some of them are:

I don't think dreamweaver can help with SEO.

There's no WYSWYG SEO. You have to do it all by urself. No shortcuts (unless it's blackhat!).

If you're interested in Making Big Money Fast Fast FAST FAST!!! then your approach may be different, and you will find yourself in a very large pool of very toothy sharks all fighting for the same small dollops of chum. The Internet is not the lottery, you won't make Big Bucks No Whammies by churning out some half-literate, badly coded site chock full of fancy white/gray/blackhat SEO tricks.
Not saying that's what you want to do, just making an observation.

You may consider to have wordpress to start up your website. Wordpress do help in SEO and it is customizable.

I think that Dreamweaver and Photoshoo are the best software examples to creat unique and good looking website. The both are the most popular amon professional web designers and developers.

An Alien is right. Or, if you really want to go wild, TextMate or TextWrangler or something like that.
Photoshop or similar can help with images and certain graphical elements.
Also, pencil and paper.

AGREED. Most other programs will add extra unneeded code to your page.
A great alternative to notepad is textpad as it adds color coding for many languages. I personally use a program called RapidCSS. The name is misleading. It provides support for many languages and allows you to easily manipulate CSS.

What are you trying to do? If you want to learn to do things yourself any software will do but, as Black Max pointed out, you have to learn a few things before worrying about SEO. On the other hand if you just want to get a site up quickly Wordpress with the Wordpress SEO plugin might be your best bet.

All I ever needed was a pencil and paper, Notepad++ (a free text editor), Fireworks, Firebug and a couple of browsers.
Oh, and sometimes Drupal...

I tend to agree with a lot of other users saying dreamweaver is a really good software tool to build and create a website. It is fairly expensive but well worth it.

Designers perhaps developers no. If your using Dreamweaver your probably more a designer than developer or programmer… just saying.

You can go with Joomla .. It has all necessary plugins available to make your site look absolutely professional. You can take help of photoshop to make you site look better.
If you wanted to develop your site in Java then netbeans or eclipse would be sufficient to make it fully loaded..
Its very easy to develop sites using PHP technology as there are lot of resources available over internet with full features. .
Enjoy the PHP CMS with all inbuilt features and make your site within a day without knowing much about technical aspects.. Its power of PHP CMS
Enjoy you site

Dreamweaver makes things easy! I am new to web design, but I am proud of what I came up with. But I know there's a lot to grow. I hope to land some outsourcing jobs out there.
blackberryfan — 2011-06-20T17:28:43-04:00 — #18
The best program comes in the form of hard or soft cover. Its a book, and that way the program becomes you
But besides that, I would definately say dreamweaver has been a great help in enabling me to learn, quickly and easily too. So many features! but what i love most is that most of the time it makes it more obvious when you've made a mistake, to see that there is one. I make plenty, so its a lifesaver to me. That and the instant referances! And photoshop, well, i'd have struggled without that too!

From my own experience, I really enjoy using BBEdit. I write the majority of my code on apple's OSX platform and it's a great application for mac users. I'd definitely agree with the other users who have added that using a basic editor really helps advance the learning process. Good luck.

My personal preference is for any simple editor (not a WYSIWYG!!!) as long as it has syntax highlighting. I steer clear of any software which does the coding for me. If I were to use sofware that did some or all of the coding for me then any mistakes could be down to a screw up by either the software or myself. By not using software that does coding for I can be 100% certain that any mistakes are screw ups by me.
There is also the SitePoint forums if you get stuck.
