Weebly SEO

I've been using the Weebly CMS for my website. I often see experts saying they're '{CMS NAME} SEO experts' which implies different platforms have different challenges with SEO.

Does anyone have any experience with Weebly SEO, and if so, how does it differ from other platforms like Wordpress and Magento?

Weebly SEO is like SEO on any other platform. The PHP generates HTML, which is all Googlebot and any crawler for that matter can see. Therefore it makes no difference.

The only problem with a lot of content management systems (like Weebly) is that they lack flexibility. The reason Wordpress is so big is that it's great for beginners, but it's also very flexible - so you get the best of both worlds.

That being said, if you aren't techy, so long as your website is high quality (content, images, metas, title) your website should still compete for less competitive niches.

Good advice?

Hello,

I have two clients who have Weebly websites. One of them is a well established, highly respected company in our local town. When they first came to me their site was on page 15 of Google for their best favoured search term.

Because of my experience with the other Weebly website I suggested that initially we should promote locally and regionally, and then, if successful, look to get a national listing which is really what they wanted.

By applying basic SEO good practice the site moved quickly to page 1 locally. Soon afterwards with more work on content wording and links we got the same regionally. Now, we are getting a good page 1 listing for some of our key phrases nationally.

Personally, I don't agree that these types of sites cannot achieve the same excellent results as others. It's about content, structure, page element optimisation and utilising some of the excellent tools available to us - particularly from Google.

Quite simply, if you like Weebly, and I know some folks do, stick with it and focus on ensuring that all of the SEO boxes are ticked.

Best of luck

Neil

The versatility of WordPress makes it an ideal website content management system for robust enterprise level websites all the way down to small local service providers. In our opinion, Weebly is not good for SEO
