search engine optimization problems!

  • Question
  • Updated 8 years ago
i recently set up a free yola site (1 month ago) and my marketing friend suggested i test the site's search engine analysis by running the url into a few website analysis sites and they all say my url doesn't exist! why is this? is yola purposely blocking the url from search engines until i choose a payment plan?
i really liked how easy it was to set up my yola site, and it definitely looks professional, but if it doesn't show up on search engines than what is the point?

Did you verify your site with Google and submit your sitemap.xml ?

Hi, Don,

We are certainly not blocking the url in any way. A number of our free yolasites do quite well in the search engines. It is likely that your site has not yet been indexed. We have a series of excellent tutorials to help you with search engine optimization. You can find the first one here:

I hope this information is helpful. Good luck with your site!
