It all started with this tweet on Twitter.
It’s a legitimate question that most entrepreneurs and marketers ask when they start their business with Bubble.io. Can we really rank on Google for our blog and marketing pages with Bubble.io?
On the Bubble forum, there are multiple threads about this topic, and they all come to the same conclusion: you should not use Bubble for SEO. The main reason is page speed. So are we all doomed to build our online business with a landing page builder like Webflow and separate our web app on Bubble?
Is speed really the only factor that prevents your app from ranking on Google? How good is Bubble for SEO? How do you optimize SEO for Bubble?
After all the recent changes Bubble made this year with their responsive engine and experimental features like server-side rendering, is this still true?
This is what we will try to do in this book: answer questions.
What this book is about:
What this book is not about:
The reason we won't be covering these topics in this book is that it would take more than a book for me to explain such broad topics. Here we focus on what we can improve in Bubble. This book is a technical guide to Bubble SEO.
Why listen to me?
I’m the Full Stack developer behind peyce.com, a marketplace that sells race bibs and we developed our MVP on Bubble.io. SEO is our main strategy for getting clients, so I worked alongside Gatien, current Head of SEO at Luko—a successful Insurance Startup in France—so he knows his stuff and I learned a lot about SEO from him.
We stopped using Bubble for our frontend in 2020 because we couldn’t create the search experience we wanted with Algolia inside Bubble, the responsive design engine was a hassle to maintain, and also because of SEO. The switch was made before Bubble released their new responsive engine, and we didn’t know when they were going to release it. We're still using Bubble today as our data backoffice and the app we provide to race organizers.
Would I have made the same decision today? Yes, mostly for the search engine experience and not for SEO reasons. Let's find out why.
I am a software engineer and indie maker based in France. I enjoy building side projects and connecting with people around the world.
Web development has always been reserved for computer engineers, but this is no longer true today. Anyone can create an application and make money from it.
My mission is to empower everyone to create applications without knowing how to code.
Bubble training gives you lifetime access to the Nocodebuilders Community.
You are welcome to ask for help on your projects at the Lives Sessions as much as you want and when you want. You become one of our members and you will be helped as much as you need, until the launch of your project.
The training is not simply the purchase of video content, but a ticket to a great community of no code and entrepreneurship enthusiasts who want to grow and succeed together.
The training starts now and never ends! It's 100% online training that's completely tailored to your life - you decide when you start and when you finish. The training is scalable to take into account the latest Bubble developments and you will learn more every day through peer learning with members of our private community.
This training was designed to provide maximum value in a minimum amount of time. I have divided the course into 9 modules, 1 module per week, with lessons lasting at least 10 minutes each.

Start this course if you really want to progress on Bubble. It's everything I wish I'd known when I started using Bubble. Through more than 50 video lessons, I share every step of my process for creating a responsive, secure, and scalable Bubble application. This training covers every step of app development, from start to production.
No, it probably never will be. I have created this course with an affordable price to open it to as many people as possible, including those who do not have access to the CPF (students, French abroad, other French-speaking countries).
The training is available for life and you will also get free updates to it. After you register, you will have unlimited access to my training for as long as you want - on any device you own (mobile devices, tablets, computers).
Live Sessions are held every first Friday of the month at 12pm. If you can't make it to a Live Session, that's okay. All our Live Sessions are recorded and uploaded to your training space.
All you need is a computer with an Internet connection and a free Bubble account. However, I recommend that you take out a Personal account (~20€/month) to take full advantage of the training.
No problem. If you are not satisfied with your purchase, let me know within the first 14 days by sending an email to email@example.com and I will give you a full refund. The only requirement is that you have attended at least 2 Lives Sessions and completed the first 3 modules.
Yes, you can get a certificate as long as you have completed an application project and passed a Bubble technical test.
No problem. Send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
