"What does Blux do to help with SEO?" We get asked this question all the time. SEO has become such a common term, yet most websites don't really understand what goes into good search results. As a result, most websites are technically fighting the incredible content creation efforts that go into them.
Prior to building Blux, our team had previously built hundreds of websites of all shapes and sizes on many different platforms. Regardless of the website, they noticed many similar patterns...
Improper website coding practices with little to no focus on web standards
Improper infrastructure causing all types of speed and rendering issues
Complicated and slow website content management systems
Baseline SEO practices were ignored
Retrofitting of SEO strategies on sites that were already improperly built (nearly all the time on this one)
"Set it and forget it" content strategies
It's these sorts of frustrations that drove our team to create Blux in the first place. When planning out Blux, before our team ever touched a line of code, they made a list of what we wanted to accomplish in the platform...
Enhance the positive content creation efforts of our customers
Programatically automate many of the tedious practices related to optimizing website content
Build screaming fast sites so that users have the best experience possible
Provide a consistent experience on every device, with a strong focus on mobile
Implement baseline best practices that will help site visibility and content organization
Use the fastest infrastructure possible for fast delivery anywhere in the world
Deliver perfect, standards-compliant code to all websites
Since Blux launched, our team has focused a lot on these areas and have also implemented dozens of new SEO-related features. The greatest focus we've had is to build websites that serve up ridiculously fast. Most of the websites built on Blux achieve perfect 100 out of 100 scores on the Google Pagespeed Test, which is an incredible feat that very few other website platforms offer. Here's a full list on everything that Blux does to help with SEO. Enjoy!
