My website is published but when you search for it through google, yahoo, etc. nothing shows. I was told to Optimize my website. Looking this up, it recommends to add "page titles", "mega tags", "HTML site map", do I do this?? Is this something I can do through HUB website builder that I just missed?

Hello TBPIE,

Great question about how to optimize your site for search engines.

The builder automatically uses the page name for the page title, but you can edit this during Step 4 - Edit in the builder. In the lower left corner of the screen you will see fields where you can edit the Page title, file name, keywords, and description.

To add an HTML sitemap to your site, add a new Common Page in Step 3 - Pages and then in Step 4 - Edit, click and drag the Site Map module from the right side of the screen onto your new page.

Most search engines recommend having both an HTML and an XML Sitemap. For instructions on how to add an XML Sitemap as well, please see our article on adding a sitemap to your website.
