Google SEO and Glideapps

Hi

Are glide apps searchable via Google and other search engines?

Thanks,

Hey @R_TP.

We would like to look at this in future, but at the moment only the name and URL of your app is indexed. The content inside the app is not.

What’s the point if we build an app and no one on google can find it?
just sharing is like a child’s play, showing your friends and that’s it!

I understand this is not a “real application”, it’s just a nicer view of some PWA site, so at least index it!

This is only my opinion and most likely doesn’t cover everyone’s use case, but I feel it would be better to create a website that serves to describe your app and provide a link to it. If I am searching for something, I would rather be taken to a website as opposed to being taken directly into an app. I want to know what I’m getting into before I commit to that ‘Add to Home Screen’ button. All SEO optimization could happen on the website itself.

Obviously this wouldn’t cover the indexing if content that’s inside the app (micro blogs, points of interest, etc ), but would provide for a better launching point into the app for new users.

Launching an app is the perfect opportunity to go and learn webflow and build your own website too… :wink:

Webflow is definitely the way to go
