I was wondering if someone have the time to see that my "sitemap-xml" file looks good and that the search engines can index the content on my site?

 

This applies to my domain: blackhouse.se

Best way to be seen by search engines these days might be to tell them to get indexed. It makes no sense to me to watch out the xml file, Muse produces. Also there are 5 important yet best ways to get known by search engines better, especially withj Muse sites: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6EszVCUfXsk

Firstly you need to not think Muse and move off it to something else as a result of the EOL.

Secondly it is wrong to say or indicate a sitemap.xml is not important. One of the first things that Google asks for when you setup Search Console is the sitemap.xml for example.

It is a key important part to any site.

To know that it is not the ONLY thing you need to do to imrprove search ranking though is a correct one.

In terms of blackhouse.se the sitemap.xml is fine.

Hello Liam!

 

Thank you for your answer.

 

Could you recommend a good alternative to Muse?

 

I am not familiar with coding...

I think you have a breakpoint problem.  At my normal magnification settings, I don't see anything in my browser.  All I see is a blank white page.  That cannot be good for you or your SEO! 

 

Muse is end of life anyway so you really must stop using it.  Find another web authoring system and re-build your site now before things go from bad to worse.

 

A good site map is just one small step in the big SEO puzzle.  What matters most is your content.  Plenty of keyword rich content inside good HTML5 structure is what search engine bots look for.   For more tips, read Google's SEO Starter Guide.

Hope that helps.

Yes, Nancy is right. I must admit, I didn't look at responsiveness. It looks terrible on all devices smaller than 1200 px.

You should add breakpoints instead of using adaptive design which you did as you use "tablet" and "phone" versions. These days one gets "punished" for using adaptive design.

The journey begins for you in Muse now or you stop it and watch for another app quickly, which I recommend, depending on time you want to spend on the existing website which you should not leave at it is right now.

It may take one full day at least to "repair" your design, I then recommend to use fixed width breakpoints (instead of fluid width) and setup all elements to not resize at all and of course not to pin them neither.

If you feel familiar with this said, which I kind of doubt at this state, you may follow my advices - SEO then follows up when you watch the muse-themes tutorial, but be aware that this tutorial as well is not the most recent up to date one and so google advices should be mentioned as well.

 

Kind Regards,

Uwe

Ps. Does Adobe have any "apps" for making a web-site that could suit my needs?

You may have a look at sparkleapp or blocs, then. By far the most easiest ways without code and no subscription fee. You may also have a look at nicepage, if you like.

There's also XD to do all design stuff and with the plugin "export as html" there's a way to keep on with either Dw as you are with Adobe anyway or try Pinegrow as foolowup instead of Dw. But both may need some coding skills to go the next level.

 

Kind Regards,

Uwe

===========

Hi @Treffenberg,

Yes, depending on what you need.

 

Dreamweaver is Adobe's flagship code editor, site management and web authoring tool.  Several former Muse users have recently switched to Dreamweaver.  It's mainly for people who want to work with code and have full control over their sites. 

https://www.adobe.com/products/dreamweaver.html

 

Behance is a free online website for posting examples of your creative work online to share with other creatives, clients and prospective employers.

https://help.behance.net/hc/en-us/articles/204483894-Guide-Intro-to-Behance

 

Adobe Spark for making social media graphics, short videos and one page newsletters online. Spark is free with a paid Creative Cloud plan.

https://spark.adobe.com/

 

Adobe Portfolio (as it's name implies) is a free website for your personal or professional portfolio.  It ties in seamlessly with your Lightroom collections, Adobe Stock portfolio and Behance.  PF is easy to use and no coding skills required.  It includes hosting on Adobe's servers and comes free with your paid Creative Cloud plan.

Hello Nancy!

 

Thank you very much for all your info.

 

I have been asked by some people to check out "Sparkle". Have you heard about it?

Sorry but I would never use it.  I don't believe in jumping from the frying pan into the fire with platform specific apps that use proprietary files like Muse did.   If Sparkle goes out of business, you'll be in exactly the same place you are now with files you cannot open in any other editor. 

 

It's better for you to learn how to work with native HTML, CSS and JS files that can be ported into any code editor when needed. 

 

Good luck with whatever you decide!

I cannot answer that because I don't know what your skill-set is.  Tools don't make great websites, people do.  If you can work with code, Dreamweaver is an excellent tool.  But it's only a tool.  You'll need to try it and see for yourself if you like it.

Hello Nancy!

 

I have a company that produce Badges/Buttons and i need to present my products to new and old customers. I do not need to sell anything from the site but i my customers need to fill in a order-form, (i am using Jotform now), and send in their orders.

 

Do you think that Adobe Portfolio would work for me?

 

Regards,

 

Carl

Portfolio is NOT a blog or an e-commerce platform.  It's a Portfolio -- a personal website for promoting yourself and your creative talents. It's aimed at designers and photographers as an easy way to showcase examples of work online.   PF is free with your subscription.  So feel free to try it.  But I honestly don't think it's what you want to use for your business website. Perhaps WordPress would be a better fit.
