About 6 months ago, I lost my Tech team, and as a Founder, I had to deliver. I knew none code, so searched the web on what I could do. In less than 2 weeks, I learnt Bubble and built my MVP just in team of the sheduled Launch.
Fast farward to today, I’ve built 3 apps I’m happy about:
Techandthecity.eu , an online tech event platform with livestream rooms
joinapp.tk , an online marketplace for University events and Organizations
theunivation.com , a Startup Dashboard app, that works like a Business Model
Canvas where you can build your idea into blocks, but also Incubators can use to run their programs.
After much friction with Bubble and developing 3 MVPs, I came to the conclusion: SEO in Bubble is an absolut and disgraced failure. Our 1.000+ event app daily visitors, had literally 0% visits from Google Search. Our other apps were and still are not searchable - despite all work in SEO settings, custom HTML and event Paid plugins to add structured Snippets.
So because a business, let alone a startup, without millions in funding, grows organically, or dies, we are taking our apps off Bubble. We’re first taking TheUnivation.com Landing to webflow - which in test did an amazingly well. Just in 3 days, all pages were crawled and even new blog posts started appearing on Google. Then we’re sheduling the Event platform and the Joinapp.tk.
I wish I could stay here. Cause it’s pain to spend so many hours redesigning. Bubble still has a little crappy design, an uneasy visual editor, and sites are a bit laggy compared to Webflow sites, but none of it was a real problem. SEO is. Bye bye Bubble,
p.s. Thank you Eve for the best support I’ve ever received online! Truly the best.
