Hi everyone–this is Rochelle from the Webs marketing team.  Sarah is giving me guest blogging privileges today to tell you about a new product development I’m really excited about: our Webs SEO Booster.

For the uninitiated, SEO stands for search engine optimization and it refers to the practice of making your website available for search engines like Google, Yahoo! and Bing to include in their results when someone submits a search. When you simply publish a site, these search engines will generally find it and include it in their massive index of content.  But you want to do more than get indexed–you want to make sure that the search engines associate your site with the terms that your customers and potential customers are typing into search engines, hoping to find a site or business like yours.

Have you noticed anything new in SiteBuilder3 lately? We recently added some brand new themes to our fully customizable library!

The Webs design and development teams are always gathering user feedback from our support team to gauge what people are looking for in our website builder. They take that information and periodically create new themes to give users even more flexibility when they create a personal portfolio, group site, or small business website.

The goal with this group of themes was to give viewers modern experiences using the latest in HTML5 and CSS3 (whether they know what those are or not!) To see the new themes for yourself, log in to your Webs account and select a website to edit. In the top right corner, click “Theme” and scroll through the options.
