The SEO guidelines informs that contents hidden to the user, but duplicated in the code, hinders the placement in the searches. MUSE, in html, creates multiple duplicate tags and contents according to the number of breakpoints. Is there any solution to print in html only the code related to the screen resolution of the user who is visiting the site?

Thank you very much.

Hi gisele,

To be sure, we haven't heard of this issue here previously. Are there specific instances or websites that you can show us that better describe this issue?

Also see this article around SEO optimization for websites created in Adobe Muse Search engine optimization for Adobe Muse websites

Hi Preran, thanks for the reply

Yes I've seen about MUSE SEO, but this is extremely basic, SEO has many rules beyond requiring quality content, same as for example organizing the code, everything the user sees should be in the code.

The site gives us a brief summary of good SEO practices:  Search Engine Land's Guide To SEO

One of Google's requirements Is to have no repetitions in the code and being shown only once to the visitor, see oficial Google Link: Hidden text and links - Search Console Help

MUSE generates many repetitions in the code, the same code is repeated several times according to the total of breakpoints created, the visitor only sees once while the google robot finds several images and repeated texts in the code

I work with PHP, HTML, CSS, javascript and Getbootstrap, I was a little frustrated by the way the code is created because I signed the MUSE plan yesterday.

Every new breakpoint could just be created CSS @media Rule for the new breakpoint, does not duplicate the HTML and all contents in the code page:

CSS3 @media Rule

I really appreciate your reply.

Thanks

Hello,

This is the default behavior for now with resize of contents on each BP unless the separate BP’s are close enough.

If width and height of content is 25% less than original height and width then resize will happen.

This is how the generated code will include the content tags.

Definitely, the team has been doing improvements in the exported code, but we agree that there is a lot more to do.

We have done one specific improvement in the update that went live just today. It is to do with generating image URL as per google guidelines.

So long story short, we will continue to identify and take them up appropriately

Regards,

Ankush

Hi Ankush, thanks for reply

Just to make it clear what I suggest to Adobe Muse:

Example css:

@media (min-width:320px) and (max-width:767px) { //add BP only in css
    body {
        background-color: lightgreen;
   
}

    h1{
        font-size: 20px;
   
}

    .example-class{
        width:40px;
   
}

}

@media (min-width:768px) and (max-width:1023px) {//add BP only in css
    body {
        background-color: lightgreen;
   
}

    h1{
        font-size: 40px;
   
}

    .example-class{
        width:80px;
   
}

}

In html be generated the tags only once because to resize the css performs the task

<body>

    <h1>Title</h1>

   <img class="example-class" src"image.png">

</body>

Thanks,

Gisele

I'm sure the Muse team already understands best practices as you outlined them. I think the issue is that Muse allows you to radically reposition content for different breakpoints, which is nice as far as flexibility goes but really makes the page heavy in the end.

I bad side effect I noticed is even elements that stay the same between pages have to refresh. I have a header section that contain a logo, navigation, and social media links. When I navigate between pages those elements flash off and on again, but if I program the same layout myself using html and css that header section doesn't refresh.

I noticed this issue when I'd already finished about 8 pages in Muse. I thought the flashing was caused by the preview, but it was still there after export.

The Muse team really has to fix the duplicated content issue.

Can you provide a couple of screen shots or something showing the duplicate content? Even the Code, etc
