Does Muse support Search Engine Optimization?

Mar 30, 2012 12:49 PM

When I publish a site, does the code enable search engines to rank the pages, the way it works when I build sites in Dreamweaver or other traditional means?

    Muse may be "designed to generate search engine friendly code" but it falls flat in execution.


    Without the ability to visually and semantically mark-up your content (much in the same way we can edit XML in InDesign), Muse is a poor tool for SEO.

    ...Using blogs and social media is one way to reach out to a larger audience and keep your content current to attract more traffic.

    The reason why blogs are so effective is because they actually employ semantic markup that is understood by search engines. If you make a Muse site and a separate blog with the same content, your blog will do much better in search results.  Just look at the Horace and Lydia site that is featured in the Muse showcase. The blog pages appear higher and with more frequency than the Muse-generated site. The Muse site probably would not be as well ranked if was not linking to it as part of the Muse showcase. Even the heft of Adobe's link popularity cannot make the Muse-created site rank higher than what can be achieved with a simple blogging platform.

    It doesn't seem to me like Muse supports SEO. I posted a question about this and they removed it from the forum??????????????????

    Was it removed or moved? The Muse forum has several confusing (redundant: 'help with' and 'general questions about') subforums.
