New to SEO? Take a look at our guide on SEO Basics.  


  1. Custom Domain Names

PageCloud allows you to set up custom domains through any Domain Registrar.

  1. Title Tags and Meta Descriptions

Customize your page title tag and meta description for each page to show results how you want it. 

     3. URL Structure

You can name each individual page within PageCloud’s dashboard.

  1. Heading Tags (H1 - H6)

PageCloud’s text editor allows you to add heading tags to any text box. No effect to your font, style or size! This means optimizing for search won’t affect your design. 

  1. Image SEO: Alt tag and Title tag

Use the “Properties” tab from the Editing Menu to add image tags such as Alt and Title.

  1. File Names

Any file added to PageCloud will keep the original file name. PageCloud adds a custom ID parameter to the image. This ensures that the file can't be overwritten by a different file with the same name. You can also use the "R" then "O" shortcut to rename any selected file.

  1. Keywords

Add page keywords to any page through the Editing Menu in the “Page” tab.

  1. Image Optimization (for Page Speed)

As of May 2017, PageCloud now optimizes images when uploaded. This reduces your site load times and data usage when viewing on mobile devices. 

  1. HTTPS

PageCloud provides HTTPS for sites within the PageCloud domain. If you attach your custom domain to a PageCloud site, you will want to use a service such as Cloudflare to provide the SSL certificate. 

  1. Custom Tags (ex: Language, Canonical, etc.)

PageCloud offers full access to the source code, so you can add custom tags to the head of each page. You can use the PageCloud Editing Menu to ensure correct position within the page. 

  1. Page Redirects (301)

PageCloud currently does not offer native redirects. For now, we recommend users set up 301 redirects through their domain registrar. 

  1. Custom 404 pages

PageCloud includes the ability to create custom 404 pages. Each site will have a default 404 page included which users can manipulate like any other page.

  1. Mobile Optimization

PageCloud offers two versions, mobile and desktop. The mobile version offers unlimited customizations! 

  1. Open Graph

Add an Open Graph tag to the head of your page within PageCloud.

  1. Sitemap.xml

PageCloud creates sitemaps for each PageCloud site. Access your site's site map by adding /sitemap.xml after your ".pagecloud.com" address or add this to your custom domain if you've already set one up. 

  1. Robots.Txt

PageCloud creates robot.txt pages under your temporary address to not crawl the site. We do this to ensure that search engines don't index to prevent outranking your custom domain. 

  1. AMP Project

PageCloud does not currently participate in the AMP project.
