What Is Webnode And Webnode SEO?
Webnode is a freemium website builder that an increasing number of entrepreneurs, eCommerce businesses and small businesses are choosing to use to help them create a basic web presence to promote their businesses and engage with their customers and prospects.
But having ANY website is only the start for any business or individual. However easy to build or good-looking a website is – and that can be the case for a Webnode website – if its owner doesn’t pay attention to SEO it won’t be found in those important Google searches, and no one will ever see it!

Webnode SEO Services Tailored For You
One of the reasons that more businesses are turning to Webnode is that it’s an easy way to create a website that looks good in a short amount of time. And it’s pretty customizable too. That’s important, as every business, store or individual is different, has something different to offer and has a different vision of their unique brand.
Webnode SEO is not a one size fits all discipline either. There are technical SEO aspects that won’t vary much from site to site, but the keywords, the content – you need lots of content to execute a great SEO strategy – the target audience you want to reach and the brand voice you want to reach them with are things unique to you and your business.
That’s why one size fits all SEO strategies don’t work. There’s no such thing in the real world. Pearl Lemon’s Webnode SEO services are tailor-made for your business and your website, and yours only.

While it is not the right platform for a larger business, many small businesses who need to develop an effective online presence quickly opt to make use of web builder services like Webnode. Webnode offers a drag and drop builder that while not quite as easy to use as the adverts would have you believe is one of the most straightforward ways to create a good-looking, functional basic website affordably in a very short time when compared to professional website building services.
You can ask this question dozens of times, substituting the name of the platform in question – Webnode, WordPress, Wix, Squarespace etc. – each time. And the basic answer is that every web builder platform has the potential to be good, great even, for SEO, but it takes work to get it that way.
Like all basic web builders, Webnode comes along with some technical SEO challenges, but they can be overcome with the right knowledge and tactics, and with a great SEO strategy in place, a Webnode website can be ‘as good for SEO’ as any other
As we mentioned before, every web builder has its SEO challenges. And Webnode does have its limitations. At some point, as they grow, many businesses often consider upgrading their prebuilt website to a custom coded one. But that’s expensive, time-consuming and fraught with challenges.
If you’re ready for that – especially in terms of cost – go for it. However, many small businesses aren’t. And a new website will rarely do much alone for your SEO, as SEO is a separate issue. Only a complete SEO audit, followed by the execution of a great SEO strategy can do that, no matter which CMS your website makes use of.
To be honest, Google, or rather their search bots and algorithms, could care less about what platform you used to build your website. To populate the top spots in their search listings Google – and other search providers – are looking for functional, easily navigable websites that are populated with original, engaging content that offers searchers both the right answers to their search queries and real value. And you can create SEO friendly websites like that on any platform with time, effort and the right know-how.
Yes, it does, and integration is very straightforward, taking just a few minutes. Using Google Console to its fullest potential is trickier, but doing so depends on your knowledge of, and experience with Google Console itself, and has little to do with the platform your website is built on.
This is an important question as a fast website, especially on mobile, is an increasingly important SEO metric. Slow websites frustrate users, and anything that frustrates web users is bad in the eyes of the search engine bots. As Webnode is hosted by the company, rather than self-hosted, it can be more reliable than a low or mid-tier hosting package with a provider like GoDaddy.
But the speed of a site is affected by a lot more than its ISP. Image size, image compression, bad code, too many site elements and much more can slow a site down. Part of the technical Webnode SEO services offered by Pearl lemon include optimizing all these things and more to ensure your website is as fast as possible, something Google loves!
We can. We can either help optimize your current content for SEO or provide completely new, tailor-made content. Or, as is most often the case for Pearl Lemon’s SEO clients in general, across all platforms, a combination of the two.
Backlinks – and obtaining them – has very little to do with the platform your website is built on. The importance of backlinks is one of the few things that have remained a constant in SEO is the two decades; it’s been a thing. but now it’s the quality, as well as the quantity, of backlinks to your site that make a positive SEO difference. And no, good backlinks are not always easy to obtain.
Working with an SEO provider like Pearl Lemon offers you a big advantage, though. We build links, across all kinds of niches, for lots of different web platforms, every day, and as a result have developed the contacts, and the process, that makes getting great backlinks easier and more effective than ever before.
