Hi BCM,

Yola doesn't offer an in-house blog facility (Yola Blog) for new registrations. This was discontinued a few years ago.

What is available is the Tumblr Blog which can be added to a page through the sitebuilder as a widget.

Gop. What would you advise is a good blog to add to Yola which is SEO friendly.

Hello Stew,

The SEO aspect is difficult to know.

Because the only way to offer a blog on your site is either through Tumblr or with a link to a third party blog. These may not draw SEO power to your primary site but it will be recognised for your specific third party blog. 

For management convenience and price, the Tumblr Blog is the way to go. Tumblr is included as a free widget for Yola sites. Tumblr isn't the best for business sites. Design appearance is the issue with Yola-Tumblr blogs. They can look ectopic as the designs are independent and may not be able to be matched as you would like, one to the other.

If you use WordPress you can bring it in through an iframe but then it probably would be better to build your complete site using WP. 

I have used Blogger previously also and then bring it in with an iframe. Doing it this way means that you still need to manage your blog independently and it doesn't allow users to add content through your Yola built site. They can however add comments through a third party comment facility if you set it up, on your site. It's just messy doing it this way. .
