Pages

Pages are a great way to drive traffic to your website. Use built-in customization tools to creatively display content on your pages.


How do I...

 Add Pages

Every theme in your builder has three pages by default: Home, Contact, and Blog. You can add more pages when required.

 

  1. Click the Add icon [] in the top-left corner of your builder.
  2. Click Page in the dropdown list.
  3. Enter a Page Name and Page URL (you can use the suggested URL or enter your own).
  4. Click the Set as Home Page switch if you would like this page to the first one your visitors see.
  5. Click Save.

After entering essential page details, choose from settings such as GeneralSEOOptions, and Header and Footer Code to edit the look and functions of your page.

 General

The general section is for entering fundamental page details such as Page Name and Page URL.

 SEO 

Use the built-in Search Engine Optimization tools to help increase your website's ranking in search results.                                                                                                                                                                                                               

  1. Click SEO from the menu on the left.
  2. Enter a title for the page. This title will be the name that appears in the search results.
  3. In the Keywords section, enter any words or phrases (separated by commas) that your visitors might use to find your site.
  4. Add a few lines describing your page in the Description box.
  5. Select Robots using the checkboxes.
  • The NoIndex tag tells search engines not to display the page in search results. 
  • The NoFollow tag tells search engines not to follow the links on the page.
  • The NoArchive tag tells search engines not to store a cached copy of the page.
  1. Click the Sitemap XML switch to allow search engines to crawl and index your pages easily.
  2. Click Save.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            Note: On clicking the Sitemap XML switch, you can select the frequency and priority of your page. The frequency indicates how periodic your page edits are. The page with higher priority will have better chances of getting indexed in search results above other pages of your site.
