I’ve posted about many issues with the new WebBuilder in the past. I’m slowly plodding along, trying to re-build my 200 or so pages.
ANOTHER issue I noticed is this: And this might affect the SEO on your sites:
When you go to: PAGES > MANAGE PAGES> and then it bring up the box with “Page Information.”
There are entries for:
“PAGE URL” -
“PAGE META TAGS” –
This is what I’ve found out with the WebsiteBuilder that I am using. (I would suspect that they’re all the same, but who knows!)
The entry that you put in the “NAME” box CANNOT be the same entry you put in the “TITLE” box!
I did exactly that several times on several pages; then clicked “saved”; and went back and discovered that the “TITLE” entry is not there.
It disappeared. You “think” you are “saving” everything, but YOU ARE NOT. It will not accept the “NAME” and the “TITLE” to be the same. I repeat – the “NAME” and “TITLE” cannot be the same.
What you need to do is to have a slightly different entry in the “TITLE” box that is different from the “NAME” box.
For example, in the “NAME” box, you put in: JOE’S GRADUATION
If you put in JOE’S GRADUATION in the “TITLE” box and then click save and then exit, it will disappear.
Go back and open up the settings again. You will find that IT IS NOT THERE.
In the “TITLE” box, you need to add a little something. Say, JOE’S GRADUATION PARTY, or use quotation marks and write, “JOE’S GRADUATION.”
THEN and ONLY THEN will it save everything. I use the quotation method. Whatever name I have in the “NAME” box, I keep it the same in the “TITLE” box EXCEPT I put in the quotation marks, click save, and then everything is really saved!
Go back. Check it out and see. If the “NAME” and “TITLE” are the same and you clicked “save,” when you return to re-check it, the “TITLE” box is empty.
I’m no SEO guru by no means, but I would suspect that if you have an empty title box, that might affect things.I brought all of this up on a phone chat a month or so ago and again today as well.
I will have to take some time to figure out all the things here. There seem to be several different points. First, to SentrySix9541, what content is not being seen by search engines? The scripts that Google mentions do not prevent search engines from reading and are required for parts of your site to work. What are you looking at to provide this information so we can see what they are saying and attempt to address it.
Also, we are aware that the built in statistics are not fully working yet, and are working to finish it. You are welcome to add Google Analytics through the Manage button on the left side of the builder.
