Weebly Tutorial 2016 – SEO (Search Engine Optimization)

Hi everyone!

I’ve been without internet for a few days, my router broke, so I wanted to come back with a bang. Today we’re taking our first steps into optimizing our Weebly websites for search engines, like Google, Bing, and Yahoo! This process is called Search Engine Optimization, or SEO for short, and basically helps things like Google understand what your site is about.

The main goal of a search engine is to find the answer to whatever the user is asking. That question can come in a lot of different shapes and sizes, like “Who’s the best SEO in Utah?” – I think the answer there is obvious… it’s the folks at SEO Werkz, since they’re number one (but I’m number one for YouTube!). Google reads your website, looks at your tags/keywords, your content, your pictures, and even other sites that have linked back to yours in order to determine what questions your site answers. The better you do at answer that question, and to show that to your search engine, the higher you will rank. Usually.

That’s what we cover in this first Weebly SEO Tutorial 2016 video, how to find keywords and add them to your Weebly website.

One thing that I do want to point out, though, is that Weebly has tagged newer sites so that Google won’t crawl them unless you upgrade your account with them. That doesn’t mean that your site is useless, only that it’s harder to actually get into Google or Bing without buying a plan. Honestly though, I would suggest buying a plan anyways, they’re cheap and provide a lot of neat features. You can get even more by hosting your site off of Weebly, though.

This whole part of the process will probably take another two or three videos. This is a very important part of your project and we want to make sure that it’s done right.

    I just checked with Weebly,: the tagged newer sites that Google won’t crawl
    are only the free ones. All the best from Italy.

      +Adriano Rosso I’ve been reading about that. It looks like there are a
      couple of ways to get around it, but I need to do some tests. There’s one
      option that I’ve used many times in the past, but it’s a little more
      complicated and require a couple of extra tools. I’ve only done it with a
      Hostgator account, but it should work everywhere else. Let me make sure
      that this still works and I’ll make a couple more videos. Otherwise, I have
      a $10 coupon in the description that you can use for a paid account.
      Weebly’s prices aren’t bad and I personally think that it’s worth the
      money, but that’s just my personal opinion and I know that others will

    This information is extremely useful to us with our Weebly site for our B&B
    in Italy. We are going to work on it right away. Thanks for the clarity.
