I finally got around to taking a little closer look at the SEO potential of the Sudsy Page plugin (which helps address @vladlarin’s question), and the results are quite promising - at least with respect to Google, specifically. After upgrading my Bubble plan, registering a new property, and verifying ownership through the Google search console, following is what Google reports…
I haven’t actually submitted the page for indexing (since I’ve yet to configure a custom domain), but Google says it will work.
I have, however, confirmed that Google does indeed crawl the content unique to the URL - i.e. the stuff fetched or generated dynamically by Bubble - even though the different “visitor pages” are technically “generated by” the same Bubble page. Needless to say, this is all very encouraging. (Woohoo!)
In addition to the SEO benefits and those listed in the product description (human-friendly, bookmarkable, UX, performance, etc.), using Sudsy Page also aligns well with the design guidelines outlined by @vlad in his excellent article.
Using Sudsy Page has allowed me to strike a good balance between a single-page app and working with numerous Bubble pages. I have separate “sections” of my site - e.g. a blog and user account section, for instance. Those are just 2 Bubble pages but constitute numerous visitor pages. I’ve found it helps me with app structure and maintenance.
I also think it has the potential to reduce server load for heavily used portions of a site such as a dashboard (although I have no quantitative data as yet to support that hypothesis).
Anyway, just wanted to follow up on the SEO issue and pass along the good news.
