carpet seams

i am putting in glue down frieze carpet. I have four seams in it one room has a seam 17 feet long about six inches from a wall two of the other seams are four feet wide spanning a hallway and the last is right in the middle of a door frame... if any of these are just bad placement it won't be a big deal to change them some. How do i make them look good i know i need to use seam sealer on my cut edges... do i need to use it on the factory edge or should i not even use the factory edge and just cut it off a few inches back also i would like to do a stair way with some of this carpet too so any suggestions on that would be much appreciated also

Don't use the factory edge, they are never straight. Buy a row cutter to cut the seams.
