What Site Editor Does for SEO
Although SEO algorithms are kept secret and are constantly updated, we have incorporated various known SEO best practices into the Site Editor's templates which are designed to perform greatly with search engines, such as Google, Yahoo, and Bing.
These are some of the SEO-friendly features built into every site created with the Site Editor.
According to Google, SSL-secured websites may receive a ranking boost. The Site Editor provides free SSL certificates for all Site Editor's and third-party domains connected to the Site Editor's sites.
Clean HTML Markup
Site Editor's pages have clean HTML markup which is indexable by search engines. All the HTML heading tags are built into Site Editor's heading styles.
Images contain all the proper tags necessary to improve search engine indexing. All meta tags for pages and tags for RSS feeds are automatically generated. Image descriptions are converted to <alt> tags.
Pages on your site contain clean URLs that are easily indexed and read.
The Site Editor redirects users and search engines to the primary domain if you have multiple domains connected to your Site Editor's website. The Site Editor uses rel="canonical" to fix these references.
Built-in Mobile Optimization
Google has announced that mobile-optimized sites would get a higher priority in search rankings, which means that mobile-friendly sites are search engine-friendly sites. We have used Google's Mobile-Friendly Testing Tool to ensure that all the Site Editor's templates are ready to be found in mobile searches.
