Thanks @lindsay_knowcode for the shout out.
@ThomasC2A I do have a blog template with all on page SEO components built in, but I assume you already know how to do that stuff, but if you need a content management system, it may be worth checking out.
I think that is always up for debate. Mostly those who advocate for that, believe the speed of a Bubble page would be to your SEO detriment and that Google wouldn’t be able to crawl the page because of content pre-loading in Bubble may not be get enough of the content to the creepy crawlers from Google to get the full sense of the page content and then not index those pages.
I am currently going through the process of trying to get my blog content indexed via Google Search Console. I have not uploaded a site map or anything other than requesting indexing on a few specific pages. I’ve seen that some of the pages have been indexed without my request as I had shared those posts on social media. Then some other pages of my app were also indexed, for same reason. Then the blog posts I requested to get indexed, only a couple were, while others got crawled but not indexed. Google doesn’t provide much detail for why there were not indexed, so I can not lay the fault of that at the feet of Bubble, since Bubble did get me to the point that some pages get indexed, even when no sitemap has been uploaded to Google.
I am also doing this for a multilanguage app, so I have pages that are www.myapp.com/th/how-to-write-a-blog-article as well as www.myapp.com/en/how-to-write-a-blog-article …I’m seeing strange results as it relates to the screen-shot Google generates from the different language pages, and I have not found a reason for an error I get on some pages pertaining to a resource not loading, which references translate. Bubble support told me to ask Google about it…I don’t know why a resource would not be loaded and whether that is a Bubble or Google issue.
One thing that I am excited to implement is the Google Index API, to make it so that once I post a new article, the API call will immediately request the Google Index API to crawl the new post, but not there yet; Only reason I mention this is that I am not sure if that is possible with a 3rd party CMS like webflow or not, but at least I could do it from my Bubble app. I also don’t know if a 3rd party CMS would allow you to use a plugin like @lindsay_knowcode sitemap plugin, and then automatically send that to Google as well, but my gut tells me when I try to do it in my Bubble app I’ll be able to.
Where does this worry come from? If it is the multiple threads on the forum about Bubble not being good for SEO, which most are pre-Bubble page load and content pre-rendering improvements, you might feel less anxious knowing there is so much more that will determine if your articles rank well or not that is beyond the differences in page load speed between Bubble and some other 3rd party CMS.
Don’t forget, the speed of your Bubble app depends on how you build it. In my app from the time I see the URL show the article URL to the time I see the content and can scroll the entire page, all images displaying etc. is from my timing is about 1.5 seconds (no idea if that is fast or slow, but for my eyes, and I’m sure my readers attention span is quick enough - can’t say if that is quick enough for Google creepy crawlers)
