Hi

I'm thinking about upgrading to Yola Gold primarily for the SEO features as I want more traffic. Could any members advise me of the benefits of Gold over Silver.
Could I SEO my site without the upgrade or does Gold make the job a lot easier?
What type of help do I get?

Many Thanks

Gary

Hi Gary,

We really appreciate your question and hope that other members of the Yola Community chime in to share their experiences and thoughts on Yola Gold when compared to our other packages.

You can take SEO measures without the Yola Gold package; however, the Yola Gold package is incredibly helpful.

Alongside the Sitebuilder, there are many things we do in the "backend" to help our client's with SEO including:

*Publish a search engine friendly XML sitemap
*Alt tag options for images
*Add Meta descriptions for each page
*Images are optimized and have dimension parameters
*All content is HTML and indexable (as opposed to Flash based or Javascript initialized sites)

Although the Yola Gold package offers many fantastic features, I would emphasize the SEO highlights of this package as the following:

*Access to the Traffic Builder SEO performance management tool
*Access to Local Boost submission and directory tool (allowing you to submit one website)
*Mobile-optimized publishing functionality
*Facebook page publishing

You also receive Premium support including 180 days of telephone support.

With these tools, you have the opportunity to take control of your website's search engine visibility. Although you may have already, I do encourage you to review the information we have available on our Yola Gold FAQs page.

Please let us know if you'd like a further, in-depth understanding on any of the Gold features.

Hi
These features are included in my Silver package?

Hi Gary,
Yep, they sure are. These are things we do on the backend for you! (I misspoke above and have corrected this.) With the Silver package, you are able to access your Page Properties to add descriptions, keywords, etc. which also help with SEO. Cheers!

Meta descriptions and meta keywords such as these have no influence at all on SEO with Google and Bing

Hello Gary

Adding on Brianna, Yola Gold will also provide the very valuable feature to have your Yola website scanned for any not search-engine-friendly things in your Yola Sitebuilder, such as broken links, missing alt tags for images, etc. You will then be able to correct these things easily and thus improve the SEO performance of your website.
