ok i am a new member and i need to verify some questions before i will become a premium user lol here are the list:
- yola is a website platform with blogging tool from widget, does it affect the traffic of google search (im currently using wordpress and it works pretty well as they are built for blog and yola is more website base)
- can you upload better quality image file for banner as jpeg has such bad quality
- since yola is both website and blog, does it work like a hub? (way to improve traffic)

thanks lols

Hello WowKid,

Great questions!

1. Yola does have a blogging feature which works very well. It works like any other blogging platform in that it has an RSS feed and people can subscribe to your blog. When it comes to the search engines, it will update just like another blogging platform and your individual posts can be indexed.

2. You can upload png files which seem to have a good quality when it comes to banners and logos.

3. When you say, does it work like a hub? I would say absolutely! A blog can definitely help increase traffic to your site. Not only does a blog allow you to constantly update with fresh content, and the search engines like this, but when people subscribe to your blog you can keep them updated and give them reasons to come back to your site.

Hope this helps! Let us know if you have other questions.

Hi Emmy...Just a comment on blogs as a hub....I spent time getting my blog syndicated right off my Yola page.....When I update on my site it updates on every site I am syndicated on.....On my Google Webmaster account what I see now though is link after link now pointing to my blog page as in over 100 and growing.Now 9% of my search queries are directly to my blog that is only a few months old.....So this hub concept does work very well with Yola as far as I am concerned.

Hey John, that is great news! So can you tell me, do you mean that whenever you do an entire site update (not just adding a new blog post) that these changes are syndicated as well. Can you tell me a bit more about this, it sounds very promising :)

After I post and publish on my blog it feeds to other places....I am syndicated on blogged.com and another site that is all furniture/home decor blogs...But there are many places now that let you add your feed to your profile such as Linkedin and Bing...On Bing you go to their home page then click extras...click blog then join and make your profile....You can add site links and blog feeds also .

I see what you are saying! I thought you mean any changes you made to your website (outside of the blog) were also syndicated :) You should also check out http://pingomatic.com/.

Great stuff, thanks for sharing!
