Mm? I looked into the forum on Weebly and seen many before me had also been complaining about Meta Descriptions in the blog.
On each occassion Weebly seemed to dismiss the claim as the user editing the post after publishing it, and that it needed to re index, or in general the user had done something wrong.
On digging into this problem I uncovered a flaw in Weebly's Blog / Meta Description, and tried to explain the problem to them that it was broken. I also received the "You must have broken it" story.
Only after chipping away was I able to get them to see the error. At the time they indicated that this would be fixed, but alas nothing has been fixed to this point based on my tests.
So if you are one of the many people saying it is hard to rank a Weebly Blog, you are 100% correct.
To a point that every single Weebly blog post ever written to this point in time is defective (and that has to be millions)
Don't Believe it, then do your own tests if you own Weebly. Look at any Weebly blog post you have, view the Meta description you have, then check the Index on Google.
Is it the Same ? mostly not, what happens is google does not read the Meta description you place into Weebly, it simply grabs the first bit of information it can find on the page.
To make matters worse Weebly blog does not render the title as a H1 so now you have no Meta description and no H1 tags on your page, two you would say some what important bits of on page SEO (I may be Wrong)
But for all of those people saying "hey Weebly blogs are great for SEO" ? I think they may fall short.
It took me to show Weebly one of their own posts for them to understand, so lets do the test here.
\/ this weeblys post on SEO Basics (apt in a way)
View Googles Index > Here
If you view the Index you see this Meta description \/
|Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is the process of making your website as visible and friendly as possible to popular search engines like ...|
|From keyword strategy, to basic page and site optimization, these SEO basics will help drive traffic to your website, blog or online store.|
The end result is regardless of what you place into your Weebly Blog Meta Description, It does not work in Google and at best you can guess what google will select as your Meta description but regardless as far as indexing it, your on a sinking boat.
One would think that Weebly would have made a special attempt to fix this major error, but then how they tell probably multi Millions of people sorry but it's broken ? But now after a few months and nothing and people here sprouting how good it is, maybe time to check back and see for yourself.
You don't think your Weebly blog is affected ? So far I have not seen one Weebly blog that is not affected, but if you have one, your one of the lucky ones.
This is not a bash up on Weebly, I still like them but really would find it hard to use the blog for anything while it remains like this.
