How do I remove these margins?

Featured Lock Resolved Issue
We just launched our new website using SP Page Builder and Helix Ultimate... https://www.footlevelers.com.

On the homepage, the sections are edge-to-edge within the main content container. This is what I want, but I'm accomplishing it using modules instead of a Page Builder page.

For a few reasons, I'd like to build the homepage as an SP Page Builder page (like this one: https://www.footlevelers.com/why-custom-orthotics). However, when I try to create the homepage, there are margins on the left and right of most content sections. I added the content to the new SP page by saving each row from the module and dragging each one into the new SP Builder homepage. All the content is there and intact but it has a margin.

Does anyone know why these margins (outlined in red in the screenshot) are here and how to get rid of them?

Maybe you have to check from a different browser
or you already found the source of a problem, hmm?

The screenshot was of a draft/preview of the page I'm building in Page Builder (not the live homepage). The live homepage is the one I already built using an SP module and assigning that module to area above the main component.

You may be able to see a preview of the draft homepage here:
https://www.footlevelers.com/component/sppagebuilder/?view=page&id=128

I know the space is there because I don't have a background image or gradient on the row but there are some oddities. For example, I duplicated the "Scanner Technology" row and the screenshot shows what happened. Basically, it didn't work.

The image is selected for the row background but no matter what I do, I can't get an image to appear... even if I remove and try to add that image again or add another one.

Also, is there a way to turn voting on for a SP page? In Joomla, it's easy to turn voting on through the article (or blog menu), but I can't find how to do this within an SP Page Builder page.

Pages don't have voting, never had. It's not a top priority feature.

This should fix the problem with space around


#section-id-1550073960496 .sppb-row-container {
margin:0 !important;
padding:0 !important;
width: 100% !important;
max-width: 100% !important;
}

From an SEO perspective, star ratings are very important. We've noticed some of our competition having more star ratings show up in Google SERPs. Because of that, our competition gets the majority of clicks. The SP Page Builder pages we recently created are some of best ranked and highest trafficked pages on our site and are showing up next to our biggest competitors. With SP Page Builder, I've lost the ability to add ratings!

Thanks for the spacing CSS. I still don't understand why duplicating the Scanner Technology section didn't work. Maybe this SP page is corrupt or something.

Oh, I didn't know, google take rating from what resource on your competition website, maybe google+?

Some business ratings are associated with Google+ or Google Business but for star ratings to show up in Google SERP, the ratings need to be user-generated and the data needs to come from each individual page. For Joomla, that's the "voting" feature.

In the screenshot below, I did a Google search using the term "custom orthotics". Our company is 2nd and 3rd in the results (not shown in this screenshot). In the screenshot, where is your eye drawn to first?

Even if our company gets on page 1 of Google SERP (which is a feat by itself), there are other factors that will limit or increase user clicks to our site: star rating (4+) and relevancy of the copy.

Interesting... I learn new things every single day, even though I have been using Joomla since 2005.
--
You convinced me, I will ask our developer what I can do about it in the future.
Also because G+ is dying...

Thanks a lot.
