Adding tags to your website

To establish site ranking, and determine how your site appears in search results, search engines look for meta tags, a robots.txt file, and a sitemap file. For more information, see

Search Engine Visibility® helps you optimize this information to increase traffic and make your site easier to find. Once you have created your tags using Search Engine Visibility, you need to add the code to your site for search engines to locate.

Adding Search Engine Visibility Tags To Website Builder

Typically, you manually add meta content to your site by editing and uploading files. If you use Website Builder, however, you can send the information you create in Search Engine Visibility directly to your website.

Note: To send Search Engine Visibility V1 information to Website Builder, both products must be in the same customer account.

To Add Search Engine Visibility Tags To Website Builder

  1. Log in to your Webbusiness.com account.
  2. Click Search Engine Visibility V1.
  3. Click Manage for the account you want to access.

    Warning: CAUTION: You might have multiple Search Engine Visibility accounts for a single Website Builder domain. If you do, use the same Search Engine Visibility account when sending information to Website Builder. Otherwise, you might unknowingly overwrite meta tags, robots.txt, or your sitemap with incorrect information.
  4. From the Optimize menu, select any of the following:
    • Optimize Tags
    • Control Crawling
    • Create Site Map
  5. On each page, complete the fields for the settings you want to export to Website Builder.
  6. At the bottom of each page, go to Get Tags, Get File, or Get Site Map and select Publish All Pages.
  7. Log in to your Website Builder account and follow the prompts to import the SEO information.
  8. Publish your site.
