Is Weebly.com okay for SEO?

by livemusic 37 replies
Weebly.com seems to be very easy to use, as far as an easy to use WYSIWYG site goes. The free site means you have
Code:
www.yoursite.weebly.com
You can point a domain name to your weebly site. Does that have any SEO ramifications? Would the visitor see www.yoursite.com in their browser or
Code:
www.yoursite.weebly.com
You can also buy a domain from them and attach it to your free site, but the domain name is expensive... something like $39. They justify that by saying that their hosting is free.

Anyway, I like the ease of use, unlimited pages, etc. Any thoughts on Weebly?

    For me, you shouldn't build your site on Web 2.0 services, if you are looking to make some money with it.

    Think about it, you work on a site for 1 year and suddenly you wake up and see that your site is gone. What happened? They removed your website just for you broke a TOS without knowing it maybe. You just waste your time.

      Why would they do that? Weebly doesn't seem to be like hubpages or other sites like that where they run Google ads all over. Weebly is just a WYSIWYG site, kind of like blogspot.com, just real easy to build a site. I like their interface. But SEO is important, wondering if there are drawbacks. I can build sites by hand-coding but I am no expert, I'd rather have an easy WYSIWYG interface. I have hand-coded sites, as well as Website Tonight by Godaddy.com, but the latter is relatively expensive if you want a lot of pages on your site, like, $150/yr with domain there. Weebly would be $39 with domain there.

    It is. Don't see why it isn't. It all depends on your backlinks/page creation that comes your ranking. It doesn't rank your webhost.

    I rather have my own website. They may change their terms and conditions overnight.

    I don't think so, I prefer hubpages and squidoo.

    Instead get webhosting from hostgator and buy domain from namecheap and use Wordpress to start your blog. This way you will have full control over your site.

    If you're serious about blogging, then you should opt for self hosted WP blog.... and BTW $39 for a domain is too expensive ...
