We’ve just pushed a few things that will make your apps more SEO-friendly, and hopefully better indexed by search engines (though Google is being quite secretive about what actually matters to reach a good ranking…). We added a few things:
- You’ll notice a reorganization of the Metatags section in the Settings Tab. The iOS visual stuff have been moved to ‘General’, and we added a few SEO-specific stuff.
If you check the box ‘Expose the type of tags for text elements’, you’ll be able to define some elements as ‘h1’, ‘h2’, ‘h3’. It’ll be your responsibility though to make sure you’re not doing something weird there, which could harm your indexing.
We expose a robots.txt file for all apps, and by default we make than the development version of your apps aren’t indexed. If you know what you’re doing and want to customize the file, you can check the second box and overwrite the content. Make sure you know what you’re doing there.
If you want to expose a sitemap, you can check the last box and pick the pages that should be shown. This will update robots.txt to point to the sitemap, and will generate the sitemap as well.
