Weebly is Flawed

Keyword Problems

Hello everyone,

I recently created a website with Weebly & I found it to be a more or less fulfilling experience.
My website is indexed by Google, Yahoo & most of the top search engines.
My home page has a Google page rank of 2.

I also recently discovered that something is very wrong with Weebly!
Everything was just fine until one day I decided to let an "SEO" spider robot crawl my page.

What the "spider" did next stunned me. No... it didn't bite me but it might as well have.
I was completely taken aback when it produced it's results.

The robot showed me that I was absolutely delusional in thinking that my site had begun to establish a footing on the net.
After all this time (6 months) my sub-pages had ZERO keywords associated with them?

That's ridiculous!

I specifically optimized my website's keywords. Let me show you how:
In the "Settings" tab of my Weebly account, you will find an "SEO" button which will allow you to add meta tags...example, you may enter a meta description as well as meta keywords for your site.

What you don't realize is that those meta tags are only directed at your websites "Home" page. Your sub-pages will remain without a description & keywords.

Meanwhile Weebly says nothing...
They secretly knew all along but they were intent to just sit by & wait for you to discover this deceit on your own.
As soon as I got ahold of myself after a session of blurting out loud expletives, I sent an immediate message to Weebly concerning this matter.
As expected, they quoted an all too familiar response:

Weebly Request Update

Hi,

Unfortunately, this feature is not yet available, but we will be developing it in the future. We have a site setup to help us track the popularity of new feature requests and prioritize development. You can check it out here to let us know which features are important to you.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance. Thank you for your support of Weebly!

Best regards,

Nicki
Weebly Support Team

So there we have it! A positive response by the Support Team & a guarantee that the feature will be developed.
So why am I upset?

I'm pissed off because you won't find my 60+ sub-pages anywhere because they are NOT indexed due to weebly not providing the resources to do so in the foreseeable future.

As far as I can tell, it may take years before the feature is released. Have you even seen the volume of feature requests? They have more than 100 other little ideas on the roster.
Everyone who wants to see a feature that suits their fancy has already posted & are racking up votes.

So I've decided to post a Hub & garner as many votes as possible to help get this feature prioritized & developed immediately.

I personally urge everyone to vote for this feature to be implemented by Weebly as soon as possible because what is the point of creating a multiple page website & individually promoting specific pages if your sub-pages won't be listed in the "SERPS" as the search engines will not index them or even rank them for keywords?

This feature is not just something that I want, it's something that both you & I need, something that every Weebly user will find essential towards the growth, development & establishment of their particular website. It is also important in order to promote your website more efficiently & effectively.

Go here to vote now!

Update...

As of the 10th of May 2010, Weebly has fixed this problem!

We are now able to place keywords on every single page of our websites.

Thank you Weebly!

I knew that it would be worth it to "stick wit u"...

??? in 1893 (age 14).The Einsteins have been non-observant Jews. Their boy attended a Catholic elementary college away from your age of 5 right up until ten.[8] although Einstein experienced earlier voice difficulties, he was a best scholar in elementary school.[9][10]His father after showed him a pocket compass; Einstein realized that there should be considered a thing top to the needle to move, regardless of the apparent “empty space.”[11] As he grew, Einstein created types and mechanised models for FLY and started to show an expertise for mathematics.[7] In 1889, Max Talmud (later transformed to Max Talmey) released the ten-year outdated Einstein to important texts in science, math and philosophy, which include Immanuel Kant's Critique of Pure induce and Euclid's factors (which Einstein identified since the "holy small geometry book").[12] albert9614 was a bad Jewish health care scholar from Poland. The Jewish online community arranged for Talmud to hold dinners using the Einsteins every month on Thursdays for 6 years. all through this time Talmud wholeheartedly guided Einstein by means of many secular educational interests.[13][14]In 1894, his father’s institution failed: instant latest (DC) lost the War of Currents to alternating latest (AC). In research of business, the Einstein family people moved to Italy, earliest to Milan and then, various weeks later, to Pavia. once the family people moved to albert, Einstein stayed in Munich to carry out his scientific checks in the Luitpold Gymnasium. His father intended for him to pursue electric powered engineering, but Einstein clashed with authorities and resented the school’s program and educating method.

Hi, I just read a great article about Weebly. The tool seems very nice and easy to use and has been recognized by some huge brands. I was even thinking about writing an article about it, but being a web designer and seo marketer I was concerned about how reliable the tool would be for search engine optimization. Thx - great post.

Weebly Sucks 2 years ago

Have you ever Googled 'Weebly complaints'? They are numerous! The site offers NO customer service, they create 'upgrades' that are not tested first, implemented without a choice and then screw up everyone's site for at least 2 weeks! Their latest 'upgrade' has ongoing problems that they have not corrected sine June 1, 2014. Yes, over 2 months later they still haven't figured out how to correct their own crap! They do NOT care about their customers or what havoc they create, they don't care about the customer's lost revenue, they just DON'T care. I am one of thousands of customers that are fed up with all their nonsense!
