Google PageSpeed Optimization

Visitors to your websites will have a better experience now that all new Duda sites are automatically optimized for Google PageSpeed.
The Google PageSpeed test looks at the technical details of how webpages are built, checking that they follow best practices that enable quick loading and improve site ranking. The most important check in this test examines whether the website code structure allows for the browser to load content quickly. To optimize your existing sites, just republish them. The sites will look the same but load much faster.

Site Language Localization

Improve your non-English websites with the new Site Language feature, accessible via the Site Settings tab. When you define the site language here, we’ll automatically translate areas in the Blog, Business hours, Coupon, etc. If you want your site to be in several languages, use the Multi-language feature, which translates these default areas as well as the entire site content.    

SEO-Friendly Store URLs

Your site SEO gets an automatic boost now that all URLs for eCommerce products, categories and store items are simplified, making it easier for them to be indexed by Google.
Note: The old URL format is still supported, so links that have already been indexed, will still work.

Beautiful New Templates

  • Ice Cream Shop: Whet visitors’ appetites with this delicious template, featuring a creative restaurant menu and multi-location map perfect for stores with several branches.  

Other Enhancements
