Changes Made to Blogs

A blog, born from the fusion of "web" and "log," serves as a digital stage where authors curate captivating narratives, offering readers a gateway to diverse worlds of knowledge and creativity. It's a dynamic platform where passion meets prose, transforming the mundane into the extraordinary with every click.

Based on the feedbacks and constant iteration, blogs changed its perspective by making following things simpler!

1. URL simplification

We have removed b and c in the URLs. Our blogs will function in the following manner 

a) For example if the Domain is:

  • User can specify the as /blog as the slug. (If the domain page already exist, it will add other unique parameters after scanning all the urls and domain in funnels/websites)
  • The blog post name is defined as
  • The category url will be
  • Tag url will be
  • Author will be

 b) For example if the subdomain is:
  • User can specify the, they will be required to add slug but it will not be considered.
  • In Domain, please go to Edit and add the default page of Blog Home.
  • The blog post name is defined as
  • The category url will be
  • Tag url will be
  • Author will be

2. Automated Sitemap

Whenever a blog post is published, the user is not required to update sitemap every time they publish blog or add robot txt. Sitemap for domain will get automatically updated whenever the blog post is published. 

3. Open Each Blog Post in New Page

Blog post pages will open in new page, it will not open in same page. We allow customisation of look and feel with form (subscribe form) or add custom comment area or any other customisation like text/subtext/calendar

4. Strong SEO with Canonical Tags

In SEO, canonical tags suggest to Google which version of the page it should index, consolidate link equity (ranking strength) to, and show in search results.

5. Customize with Different Layouts and Designs

Blog can be created with custom layout with the option to show what you like in the card view of blog.

New Blog Flow - How it Works

How the blogs flow and work is a very important function. The flow allows blog creators to design the blogs in a way that best captures and holds their audience's attention, and allows readers to better navigate the blog for easy reading and usability. Below is an image of our new blog flow design that will give you a better idea of how we enhanced that process for both the blog creators and blog readers!

What Happens to Old Blogs and Blog Posts?

The old blog which were added to the funnels and websites work as they were working and will allow users to create new blog posts. The old blog will have issues in regards to url simplification, canonical url to solve the SEO indexing issues, automatic update to XML Sitemap. All the blog posts will become part of Default blog.
To solve these problems, it is better and recommended to move to the new blog and new blog posts. For new sub-account getting created after release, it will work with the new blog flows.
