I have a wordpress website that I would like to have more control over. I have basically rebuilt my site in muse and made the appearance changes I have wanted with my site. I don't know how to code so I don't really know how to change the appearance of my wordpress site. My question is can I get my Muse Site to rank as high using SEO as I can with wordpress...which platform is better or worse or equal than the other...curious about this topic??
It's not the website tool which is responsible for search engine success.
It's above all the content.
Also, the quality of the coding, if it's built responsive for use on mobile devices, if your site is linked by (many) other sites and so on, described in Google's webmaster guidelines.
Both, Wordpress and Muse, deliver monstrous but standard conform sites - so go on and good luck whatever tool you will use.
Thanks...also I am wondering if I can create a web page that is a calendar of events and that information flows into a section I have set aside of it on my footer. Is this done by a widget or something?
The most flexible way would be to use Google Calendar and place the calendar iFrame into your site.
As I see at the moment, MuseThemes excellent Google Calendar widget is for free actually: https://www.muse-themes.com/products/google-calendar.
How will I make the events then show up in my text box in my footer?
My team doesn't test individual widgets, we can only recommend them. Please use your discretion when purchasing widgets. You can contact the widget developer directly for questions you have around the widgets.
